GO TO THE DOLLAR STORE INSTEAD: I am deeply disturbed by the fact that you can buy eight separate remixes of "One Shining Moment (NCAA Basketball Anthem)" on iTunes. There's "Original," which has a certain cheesy charm, the version "With Golden Street Prelude," featuring a John Tesh-esque piano intro, and versions performed by Luther Vandross and Teddy Pendergrass. (Note that link requires iTunes to work.)

On the other hand, the "90s One Hit Wonders" essential collection is freakin' awesome. From Edwyn Collins' "A Girl Like You" all the way through White Town's "Your Woman," with stops along the way in places like Digable Planets' "Rebirth of Slick (Cool Like Dat)" and Primitive Radio Gods' "Standing Outside a Broken Phone Booth With Money in My Hand," you've got a trip down memory lane for folks like me for whom the 90s were the High School and college years. (Though don't ask me to defend "Informer," which makes the list.)
