The hardest thing about these potpourri contests is making a mix that is actually listenable. I like every song that is on this list, even that Amy Winehouse one. But all together? That's harder to say. The title of this mix is inspired by the end of Stroszek, the Werner Herzog movie, when that chicken dances and pecks to a sped up version of a Sonny Terry song. Yee Haw.

Its true, the title is not in the lyrics. This category is easier now since so many musicians no longer care about the chorus or making any sense in their music.

Two hit wonder.

I should get so many points for adding Spin Doctors to the database and also because these guys are a great example of a two-hit wonder with Little Miss Can't Be Wrong and Two Princes making the top 20. They had a third single to make it to the top 40 but nobody remembers the song now. Furthermore, when I first moved to Brooklyn, I was living with a girl who was sleeping with lead singer Chris Barron. It left me sleepless many a night. I should get a lot of points.

OK, so my folks are big liberal types and are not easily offended. BUT as a teenager, whenever me or my friends would say, "That sucks" my mother would yell across the room "The Feminist Movement! Down the drain!" Similarly, she has some trouble with the rap music.

Charles Mingus and Sonny Terry is a definite YES.
The double dose of Brad Paisley was going to dock you points, before I looked at the rest of the mix (Winehouse, Joplin, Young, Chesnutt, Waits, ...) and forgave you.

Full points. Right on.

Despite the fact that TEAM ROBOT was crushed like a Pabst can at a frat party by the might claws of TEAM MONSTER, you are still deserving of a badge... Loser.

I too was no fan of the Spin Doctors, but I like almost everything else here! Tracks 1 and 2 are incredible in fact! My friend Dick Heckstall-Smith forever cheerfully retold and retold the day he jammed with Mingus and Danny Richmond.

That Spin Doctors story made me throw up on my junk. I think they are the worst band ever in the history of mankind. With that said, the rest of the mix is solid as a bird beak. +++
