What better to warm us up on a chilly February morning than the heart-throb Ricky Martin?
This song was an international sensation, and spent five weeks on the top of the Billboard charts here in the United States in 1999. (Yeah, Brian Olson thought it was a relatively new song...but it's 15 years old! For crying out loud!)
While some folks didn't want anything to do with this song, and one listener said Kitty's karma is in danger for playing it, others were in the mood for it.
More than 35 million people have watched this video. Why not make it one more?
Are you as worried as we are about the pending nationwide shortage of clowns? Now it's not as serious as the big Velveeta shortage from earlier this year, but this is defnitely somewhat serious!
The news prompted us to choose a clown-related song off the World's Worst iPod, and that's Judy Collins' version of "Send in the Clowns." The song actually hit the charts twice, in 1975 and 1977, and was picked as Song of the Year in the Grammy Awards (even though the song goes back to 1973 and the Sondheim musical "A Little Night Music,")
We didn't have a lot of people call in to defend the song. And even this Muppets Show version doesn't end the way we'd like it to.
Then there's this version of the song, which makes us realize that perhaps a clown shortage is a good thing.
With all the focus being on the Beatles this week, you might find it shocking that a Canadian had the hit record that stayed on the British charts longer than any other song, including hits by the Beatles. That Canadian is Bryan Adams, and the song is "(Everything I Do) I Do it for You."
It was from the movie Robin Hood Prince of Thieves, and in 1991 was a hit in the US for 7 weeks, and for a whopping 16 weeks in England. Yikes.
Despite its popularity, a lot of folks this morning did NOT want to hear the song again. Ever. But if you're in the mood, here it is. We know some people must like it. This video has been watched more than 94 million times on youtube.
