With Bottom Feeders we take a look at the songs on the Billboard Hot 100 that only got a little love. It’s an A-Z look at songs that charted no higher than #41 in the decade. Take a listen, enjoy and comment. And don’t forget, information on the top 40, airplay and bubbling under charts are on pages 2-3.
So, itâ€™s only a half post this week. Why you ask? Well, I think weâ€™ve reached such a level of crap this week, that I couldnâ€™t bear to listen to anymore tunes. This gets my vote for worst week of the entire series.Â
Section 1: The Ass End
â€œLove Me Forever Or Love Me Notâ€ 1991, #82 (7 weeks) (download)
What an awful, awful song this is. Lyrically this is just so piss poor that itâ€™s laughable. Drunk people will dance to anything, wonâ€™t they?
Trina & Tamara
â€œWhatâ€™d You Come Here For?â€ 1999, #56 (12 weeks) (download)
Not Trina of â€œNannâ€ fame, not Tia & Tamara from all those tween TV shows but the sisters of Jesse Powell.Â So this family had a handful of shots at the Hot 100. Jesse had the biggest solo hit with â€œYouâ€ hitting #10 but Trina & Tamara were featured on Something for the Peopleâ€™s â€œMy Love is the Shhh!â€ which went to #4. Winner?
â€œIf I Lost Youâ€ 1998, #86 (11 weeks) (download)
Iâ€™m not really that familiar with Travis Trittâ€™s songs but what I can tell you is to not watch this video if you wish to keep it together. Naturally, let me tempt you.
Trixterâ€™s biggest problem wasnâ€™t that they got into the game too late but rather that were portrayed as this rockinâ€™ hair metal band when they had absolutely no balls at all. This is radio ready hair metal as itâ€™s cheesiest.
â€œTell Me Where It Hurtsâ€ 1994, #88 (6 weeks) (download)
The â€˜90s were such a weird mix of music. Christian artist Kathy Troccoli charting alongside hardcore rappers, is just mind blowing. We have Amy Grant to blame for this one.
Troop were a five-piece R&B group founded by Gerald Levert. Troop actually stood for Total Respect of Other People, which is honestly pretty lame.
â€œI Always Feel Like (Somebodyâ€™s Watching Me)â€ 1997, #71 (15 weeks) (download)
We are reaching new levels of suck with each song this week, led by this shit from Master P, Silkk the Shocker, C-Murder, Mia X and Mo B Dick. Master P is quite a businessman but damn if he isnâ€™t a terrible rapper.
