VH1 Special Soundtrack

In my apartment here, the only thing that's on TV more frequently than "The Daily Show" and "The Colbert Report" are those VH1 specials. You know the ones: the Celebrity Best Friends, the Celebrity Worst Career Moves, the Biggest Celebrity Parties. You have the D-list commentators like Debbie Matenopoulous, the endless cuts, and of course, the soundtrack. Yes, these VH1 specials play like endless caricatures of themselves, and the soundtrack caps it all off. Joy and I have come up with the Essential VH1 Special Soundtrack. Here it is:

  • “Get Your Freak On” by Missy Elliott Tribute
  • “Around the World” by Daft Punk
  • “Yeah” by Usher
  • “Intuition” by Jewel
  • “Such Great Heights” by Postal Service (the first couple bars)
  • “Toxic” Britney Spears
  • “Beautiful” Ferrell
  • “Where’s Your Head At?” by Basement Jaxx
  • “No Rain” Blind Mellon
  • “Gigolo” Nick Cannon
  • “Tipsy” J-Kwon
  • “Semi-charmed Life” by Third Eye Blind
  • “Get Low” by Lil’ John
  • “One More Time” Daft Punk

Songs in bold are VH1's old standbys which are guaranteed to be heard at least twice in every special

Of course, there was a time when music was the main act of VH1 and not peripheral to decadent celebrity lifestyles.

Yeah...remember that little show called "Behind the Music?" You know...where you would learn stuff?

Oh well. I guess VH1's new demographic would rather learn about Britney Spears' Kabbalah fetish and see some gratuitous ass... :)
