Decades Feeder Bracket - 1997 Final 8
« on: November 14, 2017, 06:51:33 PM »
Well, I got some of the push back I thought I would.  Good.  It means y'all are paying attention ;)  Even though not everyone agreed with my selections, I think the initial round has given us some good second round matches.  I see a potential juggernaut developing.  I hope not.  As catchy as it is, it's just a terrible song.  Regardless, I'm sure you folks won't continue to pick it............will you?  :hide:  Thank you again for coming along with me and have at!


The 1/9





The 4/12





The 3/6





The 2/7



Come inside and vote on the latest music bracket!  Going to attempt to come up with one song to rule them all from 1960 to 1999.  Next up:

methinks no one really likes Smashmouth that much, they just don't like Will Smith

Will Smith is to gangsta rap as Gus is to height.

it was the theme song to the 2nd-biggest movie of the year (Titanic owned the money charts) and although it's been marred by a pair of mediocre sequels, the original MiB flick was a pretty enjoyable summer popcorn flick with a bunch of great snide jokes.

Maybe you know this one ?




His music is a sample of Forget Me Nots by Patrice Rushen from 1982.

If Will smith was gangsta rap, Good Charlotte were the second coming of The Sex Pistols.

I don't know that Will ever pretended to be gangsta, did he?

Nah, but I remember how much some people ripped on him back in the late 90s.

I went to E3 in 2003 with the Wargamer people, and Mario got me a pass to a private (300-ish) party that nVidia threw. Free open bar with top-shelf liquor. By the time I was fairly buzzed early on, Smashmouth came out to play to the small audience. That was, admittedly, a good time.
