Top 30 Favorite Songs of All Time: #10 “Short Skirt/Long Jacket” by Cake

Damn, being young and too good to know that pop songs were about sex, sex, and more sex… I miss those days.

But now, listening to this song, I can just feel the all too obvious sexual tension from this 2001 hit off of Cake’s album, Comfort Eagle.

That doesn’t change how I feel about the song, though. I love it. I think it’s hilarious and extremely catchy.

Go back 12 years and have a listen, why don’t you? Watching the video will just show us how much our society has grown. Seriously.

Earworm: “My Body” by Young the Giant

Nothing but good things have been spewing from the depths of Spotify’s radio station based off of artist Foster the People (except for the occasional Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj garbage due to Foster the People’s mainstream popularity).

My listening to Young the Giant is a byproduct of my listening to Foster the People. And I don’t regret it.

The song that’s been festering in my mind for a bit now is My Body.

On their Remix EP, the song is remixed by one of my favorite bands, Two Door Cinema Club.

Earworm: “Sk8er Boi” by Avril Lavigne

My English teacher is the best. THE ABSOLUTE BEST. I wish more of my teachers were like her. She’s a child inside. And she sings songs. And she characterized me by singing this song. Good Lord help me.

Two things about the music video.

a) There’s a BMX theme.

b) Why would a police helicopter come to stop an impromptu concert? Oh wait, Avril is Canadian. No wonder.

Earworm: “Bye Bye Bye” by ‘N Sync

Oh lord, does this song bring back memories. Back when boy bands were the ish.

‘N Sync and The Backstreet Boys and and Britney Spears ruled pop radio back then.

It came on the radio today in the car, and I was so pumped to hear the song again. It’s been stuck in my head all day. “EARWORM?! Hell yes,” I thought immediately.

I remember when I watched the music video for this song when I was a kid and just felt like running around my house like a maniac. I would dance for hours to this song.

There’s not much to say about this incredible pop hit besides that it is on my list of Top 10 Favorite Songs.
