I was watching this thing today. The order I occasionally disagreed with. For example, Jimmy Fallon should never be that high on any list ever, unless the word "jackass" is somewhere in the title. But the order is kind of irrelevant for list shows like these; everyone has their own personal order. Spinal Tap as #1, however, was a pretty good way to top it.
And Sarah Silverman was brilliant as the host. Very good show.
I watched that last night. Some things bugged me, like how Jimmy Fallon could get higher than both Frank Zappa and Dana Carvey and the episode of Simpsons that they picked (they should have went with "Flaming Moe's", the episode that started it all), but for the most part, it was pretty good. And I'm sorry, but I found Sarah Silverman to be very annoying. Her jokes weren't funny, and her rants in the middle made little sense.
"This Is Spinal Tap" is one of the most overrated movies I have seen. I don't think it was that funny to begin with, and much of the film was pretty boring. Anyway, I do have some comments:
(see vh1.com for the full list so you can get an idea)
#2 was great, but I wouldn't put it that high. I did like #8 and 9, and for #4 - the Foo Fighters make some great videos, but I would have probably put that at the back end of the top ten. And I am surprised that they actually remember the #12 choice.
I can't believe that they put the #6 and 7 choices in there, or at least that high. The Austin Powers films are just ignorant, in my opinion. Also, why did #18 even get in there? Jimmy Fallon isn't very funny in general. And I would be moved #27, 28, 32 and 43 up in the list. This is all my opinion, of course; you don't have to agree with it. However, I just feel that VH1's lists should not be taken seriously at all, especially since when you look at some of the things they throw in, especially in the higher spots, it seems as though they have lost touch with much of the past.
Where's the Simpsons' Flaming Homer/Moe episode with Aerosmith? Or John Belushi's parody of Joe Cocker? Or one of those other SNL sketches where they had a "We Are the World" parody with the cast as all of the musicians? Also, I remember an episode of "Married With Children" where Al and many of his other male friends sing a song for a charity outing. "We are the old ones, we have arthritis..."
There's also a Top 50 Album Cover list they have, but that one has its' own problems that I'm not going into, but I will tell you that I would have put the #3 on that list as my #1.
