“Crush On You”
British dubstep trio Nero came up with this song. Dubstep had its time in the sun, but that time has passed – it’s now seen as an artifact of bygone times.
“Crush On You” peaked at number 32 on the UK Singles Chart, and that was even when dubstep was at the height of its power. The bizarre music video of a quartet of girls haunting or stalking a single boy might have gotten people talking, but once the genre of music receded, this song went with it.
Red Hot Chili Peppers
“Suck My Kiss”
With a title like that, you know you're getting something poetic. RHCP has produced plenty of well-deserving hits that stand the test of time (as long as you're into that kind of music), but this ode to...something...ended up a little too bizarre for the listening public at large.
It's been rated as the fifth-best Red Hot Chili Peppers song by fans, but it still had a hard time getting any chart success. The best it did was in New Zealand, where it reached third, and it didn't even make it onto the billboard hot 100.
“Please Don't Let Me Go”
We may never know why Olly Murs's debut single was a reggae-inspired pop song. The British singer, who came second in the sixth series of “The X Factor” in 2009, had the chance to get big and this was what he did.
Still, the song was popular for a little while it was playing. It's pleasant, fun, inoffensive, and, due to those elements, somewhat forgettable. The mellow summer sound got it on the charts, but it didn't have any staying power. Most people nowadays don't even know the Olly Murs' name.
Despite being Flo Rida's second number-one single, “Right Round” didn't really do anything special. Featuring consummate guest star Ke$ha, the song collected a number of negative reviews, stating that it was misogynistic and, worse, kitschy.
It heavily takes from Dead or Alive's “You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)” in the hook. Reviews called it empty, with Mr. Rida wanting to come off like a thug despite his music leaning toward cleaner styles. The mixup kept the song from becoming a classic, despite the initial success.
“Party Rock Anthem”
This dance duo wanted to make sure nobody missed the message. They like to party. They like to rock. They want to write a song about how much they liked to do both.
It's hard not to dance to this banger, but eventually dancing gets old and. So did the music that they chose to put on this track. A simple beat, a simple dance, and a simple song. It was undeniably catchy, but so is the common cold. Also, the dance they do during the instrumental part links up to the Mos Eisley Cantina song from Star Wars.
