Not sure if I'd go as far as to call him that era's Eminem now... But Go Ninja, Go Ninja, Go! was definitely a classic and one of the finest soundtrack performances of the time!
Not sure about some of those others though Josh. I'm equally confused on a few...
Are you kidding? I was in high school around the time of Vanilla Ice, and he was HUGE for awhile there. Him and MC Hammer. Then, that fateful night on Arsenio Hall, he LITERALLY became a big loser. We all were laughing at him on the school bus the next day, and that year Cool as Ice came out and sunk his career.
The only difference I see between him and Eminem is Eminem hasn't fallen yet. Give him another couple of years.
As for the rest of my list.....if you have Kazaa or Morpheus, go download them. I guarantee that even if you don't know them by name, you've probably heard most of the songs I listed at one point or another.
And now to more questions.
Didn't Ricky martin have another hit with that stupid "Shake your Bon Bon
song? I remember that one used to bug me....and he had another single "She Bangs" that did pretty well.
Falco also had Vienna Calling..... and DER KOMMISAR (which was a huge hit).
Don't you remember?
"Don't turn around...wuh oh,
Der Kommisar's in town...wuh oh....."
Come on....that was a hit.
