Off-Topic: Top Ten Songs From Ninety-Nine To Ten

…or more technically accurate, from “Neun und Neunzig” to Ten:

  1. “99 Luftballons” – Nena (Has to be the German version, the English version is lame)
  2. ” ’92 Subaru” – Fountains Of Wayne
  3. “88 Lines About 44 Women” – The Nails
  4. “60 Acres” – James McMurtry
  5. “50 Ways To Leave Your Lover” – Paul Simon
  6. “Eighteen” – Alice Cooper
  7. “Fifteen Minutes” – Kirsty MacColl
  8. “Mornings Eleven” – The Magic Numbers
  9. “Big Ten Inch Record” – Aerosmith
  10. “Ten Years Gone” – Led Zeppelin

Well-known songs which didn’t make the cut:

  • “Questions 67 And 68” – Chicago
  • “You’re Sixteen” – Ringo Starr
  • “Sexy + 17” – Stray Cats

Lesser-known Songs Which Didn’t Make The Cut:

  • “Ten Layers Down” – Let’s Active
  • “Ten Fingers” – The Pursuit Of Happiness
  • “I Spent My Last $10 On Birth Control And Beer” – Two Nice Girls

The next post will feature Nine, Eight and Seven.

  1. OK, after further consideration, I’m going to add “96 Tears”, “Sixteen Tons” and “When I’m 64”, and drop “99 Luftballons”, ” ’92 Subaru” and “Big Ten Inch Record”.

    If anyone ever attacks you with a raspberry, simply pull the lever and a sixteen ton weight will drop on his head. I learned that in Malaya!
