With Bottom Feeders we take a look at the songs on the Billboard Hot 100 that only got a little love. It’s an A-Z look at songs that charted no higher than #41 in the decade. Take a listen, enjoy and comment. And don’t forget, information on the top 40, airplay and bubbling under charts are on pages 2 and 3. Section 1: The Ass End Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band “Blue On Black” 1998, #78 (10 weeks) (download) It’s hard not to be impressed by Kenny Wayne Shepherd, just 20 years old when this song hit. He was pretty damn refined for his age and had a nice bluesy touch to his rock songs. I remember loving this song when it was out and while I still think it’s good, all I hear is the sound Staind morphed into when they realized their hits had to be ballads. Sofia Shinas “The Message” 1992, #75 (7 weeks) (download) Shinas was a Canadian actress whose biggest role was playing the fiancée of Brandon Lee’s character in The Crow. She was in the scene where Lee got shot and killed. Shyheim aka the Rugged Child “On and On” 1994, #89 (6 weeks) (download) “On and On” is a pretty heavy topic for a 14 year old kid. Shyheim wasn’t rapping about missing the bus for sure. He was one of the few Wu-Tang affiliate members that actually had a hit record, even if this was minor. Silk “Happy Days” 1993, #86 (5 weeks) (download) “I Can Go Deep” 1994, #71 (15 weeks) (download) “Hooked On You” 1995, #54 (18 weeks) (download) “Don’t Rush” 1996, #91 (3 weeks) (download) “Meeting In My Bedroom” 1999, #62 (13 weeks) (download) Silk was another one of those R&B groups that I spun like crazy on the way to school. Most of my days for months at a time were spent with Silk, Shai, Joe Public, Boyz II Men etc… and unlike most of these groups, I actually bought the second Silk record as well so they had two chances with me. However, it’s been a long time since I heard any of the tunes above and today they sound quite generic to my ears. Silkk the Shocker “Just Be Straight with Me” 1998, #57 (16 weeks) (download) Jesus Christ, this is horrible. A rap remake of “Just Be Good To Me” by S.O.S. band, the whole thing flows so damn awkwardly. But Silkk the Shocker was the brother of Master P, so he had a career waiting for him there. The most interesting thing about this track is that the chorus is sung by Destiny’s Child, which means Beyonce is on this track, not marking her finest moment in music. Paul Simon “The Obvious Child” 1990, #92 (5 weeks) (download) Although “The Obvious Child” is a cool tune and very much in the vein of Graceland, I’m still surprised that in 1990 enough radio stations gave this spins to have it chart in the Hot 100 but then again, it didn’t take that much to hit #92 if a few major stations played the tune. Simple E “Play My Funk” 1994, #72 (6 weeks) (download) I have no idea what happened to Simple E (Erica Williams) after “Play My Funk” became a hit off the soundtrack to the movie Sugar Hill. But E had a smooth flow and could sing too, so it’s weird she didn’t have any other songs on the chart. Simple Minds “She’s A River” 1995, #52 (9 weeks) (download) I was a fan of Simple Minds in the ‘80s but they went through a rough patch for a long time, starting with 1989’s Street Fighting Years. Beginning with that record, at least six albums in a row got poor reviews until 2005’s Black and White 050505 finally garnered some positive comments. “She’s A River” was one of the few good tracks off Good News from the Next World which is the place I gave up on the band altogether. Simply Red “Stars” 1992, #44 (14 weeks) (download) Simply Red’s ‘80s momentum lasted a little bit longer than Simple Minds. 1991’s Stars and 1995’s Life were decent records with the former actually being very listenable in the end. “Stars” is a pretty great record, then and now. The video though, not so good. The Simpsons “Deep, Deep Trouble” 1991, #69 (6 weeks) (download) Man, I almost forgot about The Simpsons record from 1991. I wish I had kept the CD through all my pu

PoP Goes the Beasle (PoPs_737) traded the 8th overall pick, his 4th rounder (#57) & $20 in waiver cash to NY REC TH1S (BrittneyM) for her 1st rounder (#14) & 2nd rounder (#19). master chucker (markkk) traded his 2nd rounder (#21) & 3rd rounder (#44) to PoP Goes the Beasle (PoPs_737) for the 1st rounder (#14) he got from BrittneyM & his 5th rounder (#72). Slumdog Trillionaire (SuperNerdToTheRescue) traded the #2 overall pick, the 7th rounder (#98) that he received from Cup Noodles & $28 in waiver cash to Horriballers II (impossibol) for the #3 overall pick & his 2nd rounder (#30). NY REC TH1S (BrittneyM) traded the 8th overall pick she received from PoPs_737 & her 6th rounder (#83) to LFE wnats cuhkies (LakersFoEva) for the 6th overall pick, 7th rounder (#102) & $10 in waiver cash. LFE wnats cuhkies (LakersFoEva) traded his 3rd rounder (#38), 5th rounder (#70), 8th rounder (#123) & 9th rounder (#134) to master chucker (markkk) for his 4th rounder (#53), 5th rounder (#72) that he received from PoPs_737, 5th rounder (#76) & 9th rounder (#140). So this is the current draft order along with each teams current waiver cash total: Slumdog Trillionaire ($32) 1. Pick #1 2. Pick #3 3. Pick #30 4. Pick #97 5. Pick #127 6. Pick #128 7. Pick #129 8.

If you follow me on Twitter (@tsteidel - if ya don't know, now ya know), you know that I tweet my unqualified opinions about FOX's singing competition show "The X-Factor" far more than I should. If you've ever unfollowed me on Twitter, it's more than likely because I tweet far more about that competition than I do basketball. Who cares about Rudy Gay's offensive rebounding percentage when Fifth Harmony is about to kill Ellie Goulding's "Anything Can Happen"? Who, who, who, who, who, who? Occasionally, I do write things about actual basketball. It doesn't happen often and when it does it rarely makes any logical sense, but I swear it occurs from time to time. The Sixers and the X-Factor are my two biggest passions during the fall/winter seasons. Well tonight, the Sixers met the X-Factor at the bar and they immediately clicked. After a few casual mixed drinks and celebratory Fireball shot, the Sixers made the move and convinced the show to spend the night. It's okay X-Factor, you won't miss anything. Jake has the recap tonight. Combining their connection on that night with the love I have for both, here is a little ditty breaking down what would happen with selected members of this year's roster gave it a go on the X-Factor. Simon Cowell and Kelly Rowland (Thaddeus Young was the first to step on stage. Thad seemed a bit nervous out there but had that boyish smile on his face the entire time. He wasn't there to impress anybody but Rueter, the most notoriously brutal of the panel. Knowing Rueter's infatuation with the Motown Philly legends, Young went into a heartfelt rendition of "Water Runs Dry". Simon, stroking the chest hair bulging out of his fully open button-down, told Thad he had all the charisma in the world and saw big things in the future for the longest tenured Sixer. Rueter was nothing but smiles, shoulder dancing for the song's entirety. With the approval of the show creator and the Boyz II Men aficionado, Thad easily moved on to the Top 16. Next up to bat was rookie Michael Carter-Williams. With his baby face and eerily similar looks to a guy in my college fantasy football league, MCW went high energy (no Owen Hart or Koko B. Ware) and brought the house down with Usher's "U Don't Have to Call". Kelly stood on the judges table and Milli Vanilli strutted more than anybody has since 1990. How could she resist the baby face and charm that MCW brings to the table? All he needed was Rueter's approval and he was moving on. Rueter's dream since he was at Niagara freshman orientation has been to perform Usher in front of a crowd. Seeing himself in MCW's audition, he couldn't resist sending the rookie into the finals. The dynamic, yet strange duo of blog favorite Spencer Hawes and recently acquired undrafted free agent Vander Blue did a Glee-esque mashup of Pearl Jam's "Last Kiss" and the classic Eiffel 65 track "Blue (Da Ba Dee)" to close out the day's auditions. I'm not sure how this was pulled off in any form but rumor has it Primoz Brezec made a cameo on stage in a highlighter green Adidas track suit with black accents. Don't forget the Kangol hat, Primoz. Simon's description said it all... That performance was worse than hearing a humpback whale slap its dorsal fin on top of shrieking eel from "The Princess Bride". With Spencer and Vander's dreams fading into the horizon, Thad and MCW prepared to have all their non-existant singing career aspirations come to fruition. Unfortunately, this tale of heroism and courage was short lived for the two Sixer starters as Kareem Rush walked through the door. It was, as Jim Ross so eloquently put it, a slober-knocker. The season is only 26 days away and thanks to Kareem, Young and Carter-Williams will be prepared.
