You're Beautiful: I used to not like James Blunte but then I heard a song about war that he had recorded. It made me respect him a lot more.
Hips Don't Lie: I had come home from volunteering at the Anchor Of Hope Crisis Pregnancy Centre one Monday. I turned on the radio to WPXY Rochester. The announcer said Hips Don't Lie had become the fastest-selling single of all time.

Sexyback: Mad TV did a parody of this song entitled "Rockyback."
