Song Name
Submittor Name
The Chemical Brothers Dust Up Beats Released under the name "The Dust Brothers". All-Starr
Heart Barracuda Second line of the song: "I had to turn my heart away" Evan
Artful Dodger Re-Rewind (The Crowd Say Bo Selecta) (feat. Craig David) The line: "You Know, you know the Artful Dodger Do it like that. With Craig David all over your (boink)" gives the point away. BrilliantJ8
Carolina Rain Carolina Rain Carolina Rain was a contemporary country trio that were together from 2003-2009. The song is from their debut album Weather The Storm. But it's not about the band; it really is about rain in Carolina, the word being in the name of 2 U.S. states. But whether it's North or South Carolina they're talking about isn't specified. Edward
Devo Devo Corporate Anthem Appears on their 1979 album "Duty Now for the Future" Mike
Jimmy Castor Bunch Supersound The lyric "It just needs the Castor Bunch and that's all." Reggie Pillbox
Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros Janglin' "Edward and the Magnetic Zeros" is the last line of the chorus. Nat
Will Smith Will 2K From his 1999 album "Willennium" (so titled in anticipation of the milestone year 2000 fast approaching). Contains a sampling of the 1982 song "Rock The Casbah" by the Clash. Joe
Deepest Blue Deepest Blue One of two hits had by this UK duo in the early 2000s, the other being "Give It Away". (NOTE: The word "It" is a pronoun, not a preposition, therefore it gets capitalized in titles.) Nat
Rammstein Rammstein Not only did their name reference an air disaster in 1988, but they decided their debut song should be the same name too. Steve
Moe Bandy & Joe Stampley Hey Joe, Hey Moe These two solo male country singers teamed up in the late 70s and early 80s for a string of successful hit country songs, which were usually lighthearted and humorous in nature, this being one of them. It's actually a remake of a song titled Hey Joe that was originally recorded by Carl Smith in the early 50s. They recorded it for a duet album they were doing and released it as a single. Boudleaux Bryant who wrote the original Hey Joe, was involved with Bandy and Stampley's version, actually rewriting his song with new lyrics just for them. The song humorously centers on them fighting for the attention of an attractive young woman and which of them will end up with her. Edward
Xuxa Xuxa's Theme  Brionna Secret
Kool and The Gang Kool And The Gang A song on their debut album from the early 70s (also titled Kool and The Gang, obviously), but I haven't been able to find any lyrics to the song online. Edward
Captain Jack Captain Jack German band; self-titled song was a hit in many European countries in 1995. Evan
The Prodigy Invaders Must Die A voice says "We are the Prodigy!" right before the drop. Nat
B. Bumble and the Stingers Bumble Boogie From 1961. A take on Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov's "Flight of the Bumblebee." Joe
Queen White Queen (As It Began) From "Queen II" Aaron
Eloy Eloy The title track from the band's 1971 self-titled debut album Joey F.
Chante Moore Chante's Got A Man Debut single from her 1999 album, "This Moment Is Mine." Top 10 hit on the Billboard Hot 100; almost a top hit on the R&B chart. Jeffrey
Berlin Dancing In Berlin I wouldn't exactly call it a "vanity song". But it obviously mentions the city of Berlin Germany from which the band took its name (even though the band itself is not actually from there). Edward
