I can't believe they listed Maneater.  Out of Touch was a much worse video than Maneater.  I love H&O but it was pretty painful to watch that one.  The song I loved, the video I could have done without.

I think Hall and Oates were on there because at the time they were very uncool.  Somehow, in the past five years, they have become cooler.  Ah, critical revision.

The only one I have a problem with is the Spin Doctors, who were generic but not all that bad.

I always liked Hall & Oates. I just got my tickets today to see them at Jones Beach in July, and I can't wait.

I don't think Barbie Girl or Macarena should be there - novelty songs are dumb by definition!

Barbie Girl was a novelty song? I thought it was what they used to interrogate prisoners of war! (If not, it should have been- I'd have said anything to get that awful, screaming ginger bird and the baldy chap who sang at about 20Hz off my TV set)
