"After much thought into this, I have finally come to a conclusion as to why the ‘Meet the Spartans’ commercial is so funny:

It is an interesting choice to have Sanjaya sing ‘I’m not gay,’ as his final words on earth. As he is plummeting into a seemingly bottomless pit, he does not say ‘dear god no,’ ‘I love you mom,’ or even simply ‘argh.’ He instead takes the moment to reaffirm to the world, in spite of their doubts, that he is not a homosexual. Not only that, but he continues to sing, despite falling to his certain death. The distinct lack of plausibility of this situation is what produces giggles from our mouth. It is the antithesis to the belief that ‘it’s funny because it is true.’

yeah, I can only imagine how mindblowing this must have sounded back in 2001 (don't think I heard it until 2004 or so). It's not the best mashup I've ever heard, but it is the most definitive example of why the mashup should be considered a legitimate genre and not just a novelty subset. also, big WTF? at Clipse at #201. One of the best and most important singles of the decade, easy.

the first one i heard was "can't get you out of my blue monday" in 2001 or 2002. i was like, "all right, it's new order... wait, no, it's kylie... what?" everyone loved it, though. it got a big reaction.

i'm disappointed by a stroke of genius' placing, but really just stunned by where grindin' is. i thought i was placing it way lower than most, and it was probably in the 70s or so for me...

figure it as one of those things where the boarders who would normally vote for it are bored by it at this point and figured enough other people would vote for it. Understandable, but lame all the same.

I used to be so pissed off this song was in heavy rotation on mtv2 back in the day, but I've really taken a liking to it(and the doves for that matter). I've had similar attitudes with David Gray's "babylon", at the drive-in's "one armed scissor", and pete yorn's "strange condition".

Yeah, "Grindin'" should have been way higher. Still liking most of this list though.
