TRL: November 1999

November 1999

November was cool cause it was the first time we saw a boy bandís video (Music of My Heart) retire out of the #1 spot. How amazing. Thatís the big news for this month. Also, one video I really hated during this month was Lou Begaís "Mambo #5." The next paragraph sorta talks about how I treated his video and some others.

Iím gonna admit right here and now that some of my comments during this month are SO EXTREMELY stupid. I donít know what I was thinking. Some are good (hopefully funny), but some are just so stupid that itís amazing. Oh well. I could just delete them, but that wouldnít be right. You can read them if you want to, but youíve been warned. =) Enjoy(?):

7. "Heartbreaker" by Mariah Carey
6. "Guerrilla Radio" by Rage Against the Machine

1. "Larger Than Life" by Backstreet Boys - Dave needs somebody to explain the video to him. Funny, cause so do I...
Notes:
- Dave Holmes guest hosts. Apparently Carson is away working for the Sports & Music Festival 3D scheduled for Saturday. However, he is gone a lot. Way too much.
- Blink 182: first time in top three!
- Announced: ĎN Syncís 61st day. Oh, how excited am I.

November 09, 1999
10. "Mambo #5" by Lou Bega
9. "Bugaboo" by Destinyís Child - I really have nothing to say about this video, ever. Nothing comes to me.
8. "Guerrilla Radio" by Rage Against the Machine - Messages accompanying videos is always significant, rather than just mindless, shallow ideas. (see #s 1 and 2 especially)
7. "Heartbreaker" by Mariah Carey
6. "N 2 Gether Now" by Limp Bizkit and Method Man - Hopefully this wonít continue to fall. If pop stars can maintain high percentages of votes from one fan group, then so can alternative fans. Limp and Korn can share, Iím sure.
5. "(You Drive Me) Crazy" by Britney Spears
4. "All the Small Things" by Blink 182 - Did you see them introduce the video? They are so funny and cute. Itís unbelievable. I went to their concert!
3. "Falling Away From Me" by Korn - I love how artists tie back to their other videos in new ones. Itís the best a idea.
2. "Music of My Heart" by 'N Sync and Gloria Estefan - I really donít mind seeing this video, cause I know itíll be gone SO soon!
1. "Larger Than Life" by Backstreet Boys - Kevin named Sexiest Pop Star in People! (Good call.)
Notes:
- Dave Holmes guests hosts again (will for the entire week)
- Mandy Moore visits. Opened for BSB in concert. Says that BSB fans are more diverse than those of ĎN Sync.
- Korn debuts. How exciting is this! And theyíre already at the old "Korn Spot." Letís just hope we wonít have history repeating itself with this video.
- World premiere Guns ĎN Roses video. WhoaÖ

November 10, 1999 Wednesday
10. "Bugaboo" by Destiny's Child - Whatís up with the marching band/flag twirler scenes? The plot in this video is so confusing.
9. "Will 2K" by Will Smith
8. "Candy" by Mandy Moore - Proving yet again that the mere presence of an artist means that theyíll enter the countdown. However, that concept really shouldnít apply to bad songs like this one.
7. "Heartbreaker" by Mariah Carey
6. "All the Small Things" by Blink 182
5. "Falling Away From Me" by Korn - Lyrics are so far unable to be discerned.
4. "N 2 Gether Now" by Limp Bizkit and Method Man - Pauly Shore is really annoying. Iíve been trying to used to his part, but I canít stand it.
3. "(You Drive Me) Crazy" by Britney Spears - Careful, Britney, Mandy Moore is trying to copy your success (like that would happen).
2. "Music of My Heart" by 'N Sync and Gloria Estefan - Could thisÖ possiblyÖ maybeÖ hopefullyÖ retire out of the #1 spot? *cross your fingers!*
1. "Larger Than Life" by Backstreet Boys - They are so reliable. I love it.
Notes:
- Usher guest hosts
- Master P visits
- Mandy Moore debuts
- Cast of The Real World visits (only Teck, Ruthie, Kaia, Justin)
- Thought of the day: Iím noticing that we are Mambo-free today. Has the day finally come? This is seriously surprising.

November 11, 1999 Thursday
Preamble: Today truly is one of the best days of my life. I was expecting it to be good, due to other things going on and the fact that my magazine said the 11th would be a lucky day, but I didnít realize how awesome it would turn out to be. Do me a favor and scroll down this page to view todayís results. Are you seeing that group called ĎN Sync? Do you see the number they landed at? Thatís right, #2. But hereís the kicker: itís on the day they retire. Oh man, what a great day.
10. "Back That Thing Up" by Juvenile
9. "Mambo #5" by Lou Bega - Aw, it came backÖ
8. "Bugaboo" by Destiny's Child
7. "Heartbreaker" by Mariah Carey
6. "All the Small Things" by Blink 182 - Watching this video makes me recall a scene where I was 5 FEET FROM TOM! (Their concert was so good!)
5. "(You Drive Me) Crazy" by Britney Spears - Lyric of the day: "Iím so excited" (See #2)
4. "N 2 Gether Now" by Limp Bizkit and Method Man
3. "Falling Away From Me" by Korn - I love how artists link their new videos to their old ones.
2. "Music of My Heart" by 'N Sync and Gloria Estefan - My excitement cannot be explained with words. Vital statistics and ecstatic screaming tell it all.

1. "Falling Away From Me" by Korn - All this proof that musiciansí appearances on TRL makes their votes rise is getting kind of suspicious.* But Iím so happy for Korn.

November 22, 1999 Monday
10. "Take A Picture" by Filter - A uniquely mellow Filter song.

10. "I Wanna Love You Forever" by Jessica Simpson - Britney leaves today, Christina premieres, Mandy debuted last week, and now we got Jessica. Itís like theyíre everywhere.
9. "Bugaboo" by Destinyís Child - The marching/cheerleading thing is totally confusing and disturbing. Itís so odd and the outfits are soÖ not pretty.
8. "Mambo #5" by Lou Bega
7. "Guerrilla Radio" by Rage Against the Machine - The way videos debut, stay on for a few days, go off for a few, and then get back on is seriously the beauty of this show.
6. "Heartbreaker" by Mariah Carey - According to the beginning of the video Mariah is "imitated, but never duplicated"

3. "Falling Away From Me" by Korn - Wow, this took a plunge. But, it spent a very respectable amount of time at #1.
2. "(You Drive Me) Crazy" by Britney Spears - Retired today; check out the vital statistics. And, hereís a second little visual tribute to the video:

1. "Larger Than Life" by Backstreet Boys - I donít mean to "mix" aspects of my website, but Iím kinda glad that this is a back at #1. But I love the variety we got up here, though.
Notes:
- Jessica Simpson debuts cause she visited yesterday!
- Niki Taylor visits
- Model Mission contestants visit
- Stephan Jenkins from Third Eye Blind visits and co-hosts
- Britney Spearsí video retired today (65th day). Carson, in his review of this videoís history, said that she only reached #1 once. However, my records indicate that she really reached it twice, on September 7 and on September 29. I canít believe TRL can make a mistake like that.
- World premiere Christina Aguilera video: "What A Girl Wants" I actually hope this gets on the countdown, cause I got a lot of comments for this oneÖ

November 24, 1999 Wednesday
10. "Will 2K" by Will Smith - The 1920s swing scene is really cool.
9. "Mambo #5" by Lou Bega
8. "Bugaboo" by Destiny's Child - Why does Wyclef even bother with appearing in this video? All he does is blow the whistle, and heís done.
7. "Role Model" by Eminem - Back! (After a loooong time)
6. "Guerrilla Radio" by Rage Against the Machine - The instrumental intro to this song is way too long.
5. "Heartbreaker" by Mariah Carey - The superior, smug look on the real Mariahís face during the "fight" scene is amazingly annoying.
4. "All the Small Things" by Blink 182
3. "N 2 Gether Now" by Limp Bizkit and Method Man - Pauly Shore totally lessens the value of this video.
2. "Falling Away From Me" by Korn - Why does the girl have Korn in a box?
1. "Larger Than Life" by Backstreet Boys - Nickís dancing is basically embarrassing and disgusting to watch.
