    Yes, off the great album, The Simpsons Sing The Blues, which contained other stellar moments like Mr. Burns singing "Look At All Those Idiots."

    It was top ten in radio airplay here in the US, but for some odd reason was not released as a commercial single. Too bad, because it probably would have been a #1 hit here too if they'd released it.

    ^ LOL check this out too!

    It was also an international success, being the UK number one single on February 16, 1991, staying there for a further two weeks. The song's success in the UK was remarkable, given that at that time The Simpsons had not yet been shown on British terrestrial television, and wasn't for a further 5 years.

    -How beautiful, this pale Endymion hour.
    -What are you talking about?
    -Endymion, my dear. A beautiful youth possessed by the moon.
    -Well, forget about him and get to bed.
    -Yes, my dear.

    1990:

    Vanilla Ice - "Ice Ice Baby"
    1 December for 4 weeks

    Nothing, but nothing could possibly have been more obscene than this. At least most appalling hit songs are relatively forgettable. (I can forget them at any rate; even those revolting productions by the Spice Girls are now the dim and distant shade of a nightmare with no further power to harm me.) But THIS excruciating pile of suppurating, vacuous horseshit by a middle-class white wannabe rapper will torture me till the day I die for one reason and one reason only. This reason is *Na nanaa, na nana nana* - "Ice, Ice, BABY." It should actually be a capital crime to play this song.

    No, no, NOOOO!

    Dear God Almighty, I had forgotten that one until I was stupid enough to look at this thread again. Serves me right I suppose.

    But at least it was intended to be an awful novelty song. The abonmination I just mentioned appeared to be taking itself seriously in adittion to having the most irritatingly persisent hook ever devised.

    The Christmas number one single in the UK is a somewhat queer 'prestigious' tradition.


    Falcarius has it on good authority the Bob the Builder theme song was a Christmas number one hit in 2000, in doing so becoming the best selling single of that year. If that's not bad enough Bob the Builder had another number one with his version of Mambo No. 5 a year later.

    I did. But have you *listened* to the Mr Blobby one? For more than a few seconds?
