9. Prince - 1999

Prince was obviously a man ahead of his time. He knew all about that Y2K bug before anyone else. He even sang about it:

'cuz they say two thousand zero zero party over,
Oops out of time
So tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1999

Never mind that the best song on the album was Let's Pretend We're Married, all you heard on the radio was 1999 and Little Red Corvette. Over and over and over. And just when you finally got that damn song out of your mind, it was really 1999 and it was back all over the radio again and everyone was partying like hell would freeze over when the year ended. And then 1999 came and went, and it was evident we were still partying and not out of time at all. Song over. Thank you.

Favorite song: Let's Pretend We're Married
