    Most Memorable songs of the 50's-90's...what's yours?

    After my "Lil Eazy-E Poll" thread got locked and stripped of its honor, I decided to come up w/ a thread that could stand the TESTS of purple time! {Look at me! :P}
    This thread here is for the music lovers of years past! Feel free to post audio or video footage of some of your most memorable/favorite songs of old. A few guidelines: make sure you give the artist(s) name, the song and the error (i.e. betwix 1950s-1990s) in which the song was made.

    I'll start things off (w/ more to come) w/ one of my favorites: "Dur Dur D'etre Bebe" by the cute little boy from across the waters, Jordy! 1990s.
    p.s. This version is live. ENJOY!
    [youtube=425,350]ATO2DifWrzs[/youtube]
    Oh, and here's an extra: the lyrics! Sing along!
    C’est dur dur d’être bébé
    Oh la la bébé, c’est dur dur d’être bébé
    Oh la la bébé, c’est dur dur d’être bébé
    Dur dur d’être bébé

    Je m’appelle Jordy
    J’ai quatre ans et je suis petit
    Dur dur d’être bébé, dur dur d’être bébé
    Viens ici, touche pas ça
    Reste assis, vaa pas lÃÂ*
    Fais comme çi, fais comme ça
    Patati et patata
    Pourquoi çi pourquoi ça
    Pourquoi c’est comme ci
    Pourquoi çi pourquoi ça
    Pourquoi c’est comme ça.

    Oh la la bébé, c’est dur dur d’être bébé
    Oh la la bébé, c’est dur dur d’être bébé
    Dur dur d’être bébé.

    Et Maman, qu’est-ce que tu dis
    Fais dodo, laves tes dents
    Enlève tes doigts du nez
    Fais pas çi, fais pas ça
    Patati et patata
    Pourquoi çi pourquoi ça
    Pourquoi c’est comme ci
    Pourquoi çi pourquoi ça
    Pourquoi c’est comme ça.
    Reste assis, pas d’accord!
    Touche pas ça, pas d’accord!
    Va pas lÃÂ*, pas d’accord!
    T’auras pas de dessert
    Et Mamie, et Papi, et Maman
    C’est dur dur d’être bébé

    Oh la la bébé, c’est dur dur d’être bébé
    Oh la la bébé, c’est dur dur d’être bébé
    Dur dur d’être bébé.

    Translation:
    It’s Hard To Be A Baby

    It’s tough to be a baby
    Oh, baby, it’s tough to be a baby
    Oh, baby, it’s tough to be a baby
    Tough to be a baby

    My name’s Jordy, I’m four years old, I’m really small
    It’s tough to be a baby, tough to be a baby
    Come here, don’t touch that, sit still, don’t go there
    Do this, do that, blah, blah, blah
    Why this, why that, why is that like this?
    Why this, why that, why is that like this?

    Oh, baby, it’s tough to be a baby
    Oh, baby, it’s tough to be a baby
    Tough to be a baby

    And mommy says, go to bed, brush your teeth
    Don’t pick your nose, don’t do this, don’t do that
    Blah, blah, blah
    Why is this, why is that, why is that like this?
    Why is this, why is that, why is that like this?
    Don’t move - no way!
    Don’t touch that - no way!
    Don’t go there - no way!
    You won’t get your dessert
    And grandma, grandpa and mommy
    It’s tough to be a baby

    Oh, baby, it’s tough to be a baby
    Oh, baby, it’s tough to be a baby
    Tough to be a baby

    Bono -

    One of your favorite songs is from a tragic 4 year old whose father/agent forced him to do failed TV commercials and children's amusement parks before the French government finally intervened in 1994 (when he was 6) and forced the parents to stop abusing him?
    He later sued his parents for emancipation and won BTW.

    Wow.
    I have some great video of Korean children in sweat shops if that is what gets your rocks off...

    Can you stay on topic here? I mean, it's not like I knew that about Jordy. It's sad, but that has nothing to do w/ the whole point of this thread. It's all about sharing songs that we really liked from years past. What's wrong w/ that? I mean, if that's the case, I better not even think about posting any of my many Jackson 5 videos after the way Joe Jackson abused them, eh?

    When you require nothing, you get nothing; when you expect nothing, you will find nothing; when you embrace nothing, all you will have is nothing.

    All right! Shock's got taste! DEVO was amazing back in the 80's. I really liked that "WHIP IT" song. CORRECT THAT WHIP. GIVE A PASS A SLIP. STEP ON A BRICK. BREAK YOUR MOMMA'S BACK!

    It would actually be a blessing if you would refrain from any of the Jackson material.

    Appreciated.
