The Test of Time: “Same Girl,” the Best Song of All Time

When in the course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

The Test of Time: ‘Space Jam’

Space Jam is, by most accounts, a classic. It made $230 million at the box office against a budget of $80 million (a ton for 1996).

Excellent Rap Lyrics, Volume XXI: Flo Rida Doesn’t Seem to Be Good at Sex

It’s no secret that rap music is loaded with sexual innuendo. Some lyrics are more subtle than others; on the one hand you have Snoop Dogg and Akon singing “I wanna fuck you” and on the other end you have…well, I guess most rap is on that end of the spectrum. Even so, in 2008 Flo Rida emerged on the hip hop scene with a monster of a song called “Low.” It wasn’t over-the-top sexual, but it sure...
