Obviously the VH1 understands my demographic, because between Best Week Ever, I Love the 90s and other shows, I find myself stopping on that channel when there's nothing else on. Today they had the 40 Most Awesomely Bad #1's.
Most were pretty predictable. The one about the Spice Girls sure took me back. I remember when they came out, my first reaction was that I wanted to bone every one of them... except "Baby Spice." Scary, Posh, Sporty, Ginger... they were all on my celebrity to-do list (doesn't everyone have a list like that?). But Baby... ugh. Not attractive.
Well... things change. While the rest were having babies, banging soccer stars or generally getting skanky, Emma Bunton got HOT. Sure didn't see that coming.
Of course the number one song on the show was Macarena, but honestly, I don't think anyone can really appreciate just how annoying that song was unless they worked at a top 40 radio station at the time. Trust me, I did. It was horrible. I have no sympathy for people that were annoyed by the song. Not only would I have to play it five times a night for three months straight, but even at 3am some little 14-year-old was calling me over and over wanting to hear it. That should've been the first warning sign that radio was not something to make a career out of.
Ah, but it's amazing how even bad songs lead to memories...
