Breitbart’s meltdown wasn’t shocking at all: Why we shouldn’t be surprised by this dumpster fire of a scandal.

“Breitbart employees seem to genuinely believe they were rebels fighting the good fight to speak truth to liberal power, when the reality is they have been instruments for every grifter, blowhard, and paranoid lunatic the right has vomited up over the last decade, used to inject an IV full of venom directly into the American bloodstream.”

Over the next few weeks we’ll have a lot of fun looking at 20 Songs Everyone Knows That Didn’t Hit The Top 40! These are all songs that have become a part of pop culture history, but failed on the chart when they were originally released. Songs that, through inclusion in films, TV, or other medium have managed to withstand the test of time.

Note – We’ll also include a couple of songs that were never actually released a singles, but have also become classics.

At #8 is “What I Like About You” by The Romantics

romanticsblog

The Romantics had a huge pop hit in early ’84 with “Talking In Your Sleep”(#3), but they’ll always be best known for “What I Like About You,” a song that fizzled on the chart, peaking at #49 in March 1980.

But like many songs of that era, it was brought back to life starting in the late 80’s thanks to a constant presence in commercials, TV shows, and films, becoming a certified pop classic.
