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

Manon Rheaume was the first woman to sign with an NHL team (Tampa Bay Lightning) back in 1992.  This album is probably not a concept album devoted to Manon Rheaume, but it would be a good idea for a concept album.

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

Although they are in the band’s name, there is no pervasive use of sleigh bells anywhere on the song.

 

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.) :

The Google image search for “It’s Just Us Now Sexy” gave us this snazzy picture of Magic Mike giving us his patented ultra pelvic thrust.  Sometimes Google image search works in divine and mysterious ways.  It’s best not to question the Google algorithm, it truly knows all.  Absurd Search Result Tatumtastic Sexiness!

“Akhar Zaman” means “This Moment” in the Tuareg language of Tamasheq and is NOT a Star Wars character related to Admiral Gial Ackbar.

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

A school with only seven bells would be very weird and consist of only like 3 periods and one random warning bell.  That school is probably in YISD and was one of Superintendent Xavier De La Torre’s “brilliant” ideas.

 

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.) :

School of Seven Bells was a very photogenic group from any angle.  I don’t think they were capable of taking a bad group picture.  Mythical Pick Pocketing Sexiness!

Back in 2015, K-Pop group BESTie also had a song called “Excuse Me” complete with sexy video.  How the hell did we miss this and not include it in the Simple Minded Top 100 Songs of 2015 list?  Regretful Hot Korean Girl Sexiness!

# 10
Tender Suns
“In The Years 2000”
Fits Like This

AWESOMETASTIC AUDIO SAMPLE:

CLICK HERE TO LISTEN TO THE SONG!

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

The sun, is in fact, not very tender and is more on the burny/fiery side of the touch spectrum.

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.) :

Typing “In The Years 2000 Sexy” gives us a poster for the movie Sexy Killer.  The Spanish movie is from 2008 and not 2000 and we don’t really know what else the Google algorithm looked at to give us this pic, but IMDB says the movie involves zombies, mass murder and nudity – so we say you should check it out.  Random Spanish Movie Sexiness!

TOP 100 SONGS OF 2016 – 100 to 71

After some delay, we present Simple Minded Entertainment's annual countdown of the previous years top songs.  The list was done about a month ago, but recent changes on the site have caused delays for much of the pipeline.  But we’re sort of at 100% now, so let’s get cracking with the list.  The Simple Minded Top 100 Songs of 2016 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 2016 (or the later part of 2015) from anywhere in the world is eligible as well as singles released in 2016 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.  And so it begins!
