Ugh, if only "The Story" had a chance.

In other words, the entire soundtrack to High School Musical 3. Please don't let any of those make it through...

I like Barking at the Moon, Down to Earth, and Jai Ho. Yes, the Hamlet 2 song would be pretty hilarious as well.

Come on, Daniel. You don't want "I Want It All" to make it?! BOOOOO.

Daniel Getahun said...

That's right - I Want It All...to go unnominated! Zing!

J.D. said...

That's not funny.
