To discuss MILF Friday: I did it all for the baked goods

It wouldn't be the last Friday of the month without Music I Loved Fridays. This time around, let's get our rock on:



You can take that cookie, and stick it up your yeah.

Flashback:
It's 1998. I'm tenth grade, and, like most of my peers, have been immersed in teen pop music for a year, from Backstreet to Brandy. And then, one day on TRL, it all changed... Now, back in time:

Girls like guys who weigh 140 pounds, wear braces and have a bowl cut, right? Right?

Maybe I should dress more like JC Chasez... That dude has got the look the ladies love... all I need is a white dress shirt and an awkwardly shaped nose... one nose down, one shirt to go.

Or maybe I should dress like this guy, Fred, who I saw on Total Request Live. You wouldn't believe it-- he has tattoos all over, a backward baseball cap and his last name is Hearse or Durd or something. Crazy. His bandmate wears black contacts to make him look like the devil-- I mean, these guys just are so hardcore! After all, these guys did that remake of "Faith," and made it all hardcore and whatnot-- they made George Michael's diddy into something us kids can relate to, because you got all inventive and screamed the lyrics! Rock n Roll Hall of Fame needs to polish off a plaque right now, because these guys gots skillz.

So Fred's in this band, Limp Noodle. No, wait, it was Flat Biscuit. Hot Pocket? I'd AOL search it, but this 52k modem is slooooowwww. Much faster than the 26k before it, though.

Limp Bizkit! That's it. Anyway, they've got this really catchy song that's so anti-pop, yo. It's called "Nookie." When I get old enough to tell you what "nookie" means, I'll let you know. I'm guessing it's some kind of baked good. I'd do it all for a brownie, I'll tell you that much. I'd fondle a pony for a muffin.

"I did it all for the nookie (come on) the nookie (come on)/So you can take that cookie and stick it up your (yeah)"

Fred, why on earth would I waste a perfectly good cookie by sticking it up my yeah? Well, it doesn't matter anyway, because all the girls seem to love you-- I bet one day you and Eminem will be competing over Christina Aguilera-- so I'll just take your advice and go with it.

I did it all for the nookie, ladies. Please act accordingly.

Billboard Top 5 songs of 1998:
1. Too Close Next
2. The Boy Is Mine Brandy & Monica
3. You're Still The One Shania Twain
4. Truly Madly Deeply Savage Garden
5. How Do I Live LeAnn Rimes

I'll play along -- "Faith" was awesome though. I still know most of the words to most of the songs on the LB 1st album (Chris will hold that against me forever, and I guess I don't blame him).

*NSync was possibly the first real concert I went to without parental supervision... and a friend of mine probably still has one of JC's sweat-rags growing/molding in a Ziploc bag at her house.

Afterthought:
I pack a chainsaw. (WHAT?!)

Ugh, I don't care for Limp Bizkit at all. Stick with JC Chasez... or not, wasn't he the one that turned out to be a junkie?

I still have every song from that top five on my iTunes - no word of a lie.

Ah I remember 1998. No wait. I don't. I was a freshman in college and drunk the ENTIRE year. I call that my blackout year.

I liked me some Limp Bizkit, although was always a bit of a douche.

I was quite partial to " Rollin' " a few years after that - only because it was the bestest song to play whilsy driving around with your windows down after just having acquired your drivers licence. Yep, i did that. For shame.

Had totally forgotten about this song ... I actually really liked it. Going to download it to my iPod. Thank you Andy!

I can remember singing "I did it all for nookie, yeah, the nookie, yeah, so you can take that cookie and stick up your, yeah..." etc. without having a CLUE what I was saying.

Man was I naive or what.
