Some O' Mine:

Bette Davis Eyes- Kim Carnes (1981)
Hey Ya- Outkast ('03)
Superstition - Stevie Wonder ('73)
You're No Good- Linda Ronstadt ('74- Man, was she a babe in her day)
I'm Too Sexy- Right Said Fred ('91..Like it or not....you still *know* it, dontcha?)
Jessie's Girl- Rick Springfield ('81..I noticed this one getting recent attention again)
Hollaback Girl- Gwen Stefani ('05..infectious ....& inescapable)

I'll think of more. Meantime...enjoy the vintage vid'! :)
