FieryRedheadInFieryDesert Sexiness!  ‘Desert Sexy’ on Google gives us this amazing image of Cintia Dicker in the desert from the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.  Any image search that turns up a picture of Cintia Dicker is a good search.  Good job, creepy Google algorithm.

TOP 100 SONGS OF 2017 – #10 “We Drift On” by Dan Black with Imogen Heap and Prequell

We have now reached the Top 10 portion of the Simple Minded Top 100 Songs of 2017 and, as always, the top 10 songs will be honored with our expert analysis. Our expert analysis is basically made-up trivia and sexy pictures thus making us slightly more legitimate than 90% of the people that talk about music on the internet.  Enjoy the rest of the countdown.
# 10
Dan Black with Imogen Heap and Prequell
“We Drift On”
Do Not Revenge

 

AWESOMETASTIC AUDIO SAMPLE:

CLICK HERE TO LISTEN TO THE SONG!

POINTLESS TRIVIA THAT’S SORT OF RELATED TO THE SONG:

“We Drift On” was not inspired by the hit film The Fast And The Furious:  Tokyo Drift.  But if you sync up Dan Black’s album Do Not Revenge with the DVD of Tokyo Drift it makes as much sense as when drug addicts sync up Dark Side Of The Moon with The Wizard Of Oz.

BONUS SEXY PIC (A sexy pic of the artist or a sexy pic that’s loosely inspired by the song.  If no sexy pic of the artist is available, we typed the song title plus “sexy” and/or “nude” into Google image search and this is what we got.) :

MarioKartDrivingStyle Sexiness!  Typing in ‘We Drift On Sexy’ in Google gives us the screen grab from ‘Hot Sexy Girls Drift’ on YouTube.  So either hot, sexy girls are behind the wheel of drifting cars or they are prancing around as cars drift around them.  I hope it’s the former because speeding cars passing by hot, semi-naked girls sounds like a pedestrian fatality waiting to happen.

Finally, we present Simple Minded Entertainment's annual countdown of the previous years top songs.  The Simple Minded Top 100 Songs of 2017 begins now with songs 100 to 11, 30 at a time, and then, starting with song number 10, we will be counting them down individually including commentary, gratuitous sexy pictures, audio links and moderately relevant trivia.  Same rules apply as previous lists, any song that was on any album released in 2017 (or the later part of 2016) from anywhere in the world is eligible as well as singles released in 2017 or songs that hit it big or got major airplay within the past year  - as long as it’s not too old we will consider it.  To summarize, as long as the song didn’t appear in any of our previous lists and the song or album charted anywhere in the world last year – IT IS ELIGIBLE.  In addition, cover songs and live performances are also eligible - but they have to be real good and unique.  Let's get the list started!
