OMFG.

You can see what it was going for, but it crosses *way* over from being a tongue-in-cheek celebration of female empowerment to being... genuinely sadistic if not psychotic.

Are you a "one hit wonder" if the followup reaches #3 ?!

Yeah, I do remember quite a few of those songs.... mainly because they *were* hits and most of the associated "one-hit wonders" were nothing of the sort. >:(

The Weather Girls - It's Raining Men (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l5aZJBLAu1E) is *incredibly* low budget and cheesy, to the point it's actually sort of charming.
