Classics vs. Moments of Insanity

Posted by lanktank on August 12, 2009

Remember the songs that took the world by storm. I’m not talking about your average number one that spent a couple of weeks on the billboards. I’m talking about the songs that we all went mental over!

I’ve been pondering over a few and as I reflect, I feel that with some of the songs, we were justified in playing them over and over and over again. They were/are Classics.

But then there were the ones that we’re all guilty of listening to and when I think back on it now…really, what were we thinking? These were our Moments of Insanity.

Here’s my list…what do you think?


Bohemian Rhapsody – Queen
Hey Ya – Outkast
Livin’ on a Prayer – Bon Jovi
Yeah – Usher
Hit Me Baby One More Time – Britney Spears
In Da Club – 50 Cent
Ice Ice Baby – Vanilla Ice
Jump Around – House Of Pain
Gangsta’s Paradise – Coolio
Rehab – Amy Winehouse
Sandstorm – Darude

Moments of Insanity:

Macarena – Los Del Rio
The Ketchup Song – Las Ketchup
Mambo No. 5 – Lou Bega
Blue – Eiffel 65
Umbrella – Rhianna
Kriss Kross – Jump
Achy Breaky Heart – Billy Ray Cyrus
I’m Too Sexy – Right Said Fred
Tubthumping – Chumbawumba
Cotton Eye Joe – Rednex
Who Let the Dogs out – Baha Men

On the Fence (I can’t decide):

Wannabee – Spice Girls
My Heart Will Go On – Celine Dion
YMCA – Village People
500 Miles – Proclaimers
“MMMBop” – Hanson

Anymore? What do you guys think? Have I categorised appropriately?

Update on a not so eventful life…

Posted by lanktank on June 29, 2009

That would be my life…

DMeister has a mutant mosquito in his room (in winter!!) and it attacked my face, shoulder, shin and finger! Do you know how frustrating it is to have an itchy bite on your finger? You can’t scratch it properly. It either hurts too much or it’s completely numb.

MJ is dead, so is Farrah Fawcett. How many Michael Jackson songs have you heard since Friday morning? I think I’m on 38.

Bafana didn’t win to Spain, but what a game. How was that free kick to equalise to 2-2?

The Boks played a great game against the Lions….and by great, I mean we won! IN YOUR FACE LIONS! Too harsh?

I lost my favourite hair clip.

I ate dodgy calamari before going to see Star Trek. I actually wanted to see Transformers but it was sold out. Star Trek was cool, worth a watch for sure.

It’s probably the first sunny day we’ve had in 3 weeks and I’m sitting in my room with nothing to do.


Marvelous, now I’m talking like Yoda… officially losing my mind.

I’d like to apologise for this possibly being the worst post I have ever published. (Yes, there have been worse posts written but not published).

Maybe Will Ferrell will cheer us up:

Mango still Grooving

Posted by lanktank on November 19, 2008

The other day, at work, I had to call the worst place you could possibly call. It’s the place we all fear most, but at some point in our lives, all have to face. Just talking about it now gives me chills but I’ll keep talking nevertheless… that’s right, it’s not the dentist, it’s not the bank… its Telkom.

God! Even finding the number for the division of Telkom I needed to speak to was an impossible task so I was suckered into dialling 1023. Isn’t this a piece of shite directory, where I get spoken to by the snootiest lady ever, who I’m not entirely sure is a real person. And has anyone else noticed how weirdly pitched she goes on the numbers when she talks; “You are twenTY…SEVen in the queue. Your call will be answered in approximately fouR… and a HALF minutes.” Followed by the most excruciating tune I have ever heard, “Na na, na naaaa, na na ni ni niiii! Da na da na, na na naaaa, ni ni niiiiii” (excuse my singing, I don’t have the best voice) and this repeats itself for the next fouR and a HALF minutes, until I finally get through to an operator but by now, I’ve forgotten why I called. So, I find myself asking, “Who is the composer of this song and where can I execute him?” Read the rest of this entry »
