Friday Night Videos!: The Hits of 1994

Welcome to 1994, home of the Whopper. Would you like Salt ‘n Pepa with that? How about a cup of Gin and Juice, or a slice of Cantaloop? Not doing it for you? Then maybe a mouthful of Cranberries will suit you better?

Livin’ in a foodies paradise this week on Friday Night Videos so sit back, relax and don’t talk with your mouth full.

EIGHT!

Tom Petty and the HeartbreakersMary Jane’s Last Dance: Please, we know what you’re really singing about, Tom. Don’t lie to us. (It’s about Spider-Man, of course!)

SEVEN!

The Artist Formerly Known As Prince – The Most Beautiful Girl In The World: The most words in a title on this list!

SIX!

Bruce Springsteen – Streets of Philadelphia: Since there’s nothing to make fun of about this song or video, we’ll just say that Jason Hare wanted Richard Marx’s “Now and Forever” here instead. Now what do you say?

FIVE!

Warren G and Nate Dogg – Regulate: Well, that is what a regulator is for, isn’t it?

Snoop Dogg – Gin & Juice: How’s about a nice Hawaiian Punch?

Crash Test Dummies – Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm: Oooo-once there was this keeeiid who ate a lotta cheese and just couldn’t take a poo, but whe-hen he finally popped one, his eyes went straight from white into bright red… He couldn’t quite explain how he blew out all those vessss-lesss..!

FOUR!

Salt ‘n Pepa with En Vogue – Whatta Man: Whassa matter, you? Hey! Gotta no respect? Hey!

US3 – Cantaloop: Trip hop melons make me gassy.

Madonna – Secret: Madonna makes me gassy too.

Seal – Prayer For The Dying: Once you catch a whiff of my gassiness, you’d think I was dying too.

THREE!

Salt ‘n Pepa – Shoop: Doo wop. Fiddle doop.

John Mellencamp and Me’shell Ndegeocello – Wild Night: Van Morrison was shocked, SHOCKED, to find he was covered by Johnny Cougar, until the royalty check came in. All is forgiven.

The Cranberries – Linger: Do you have to? Do you have to? Do you have to?

And your winner for 1994 is…

Ace of Base – The Sign: And we use the term “winner” loosely.

And our winner for 1994, with a ceiling-shattering ten votes…

Beck – Loser: Soy, over lamby door. Omma loosa babee…

And because he’s one of the poobahs, and we kinda have to, Jason Hare’s winner is…

Richard Marx – Now and Forever: It’s like someone stole the toy out of the cereal box, isn’t it?

    My favorite thing about “Whatta Man” is that it’s Gregory House, M.D.’s ringtone. hehe

    1994 wasn’t such a bad year in music I suppose.
