Home of Rhett & Link fans - the Mythical Beasts!

In their most recent video, Rhett and Link sing an amazing medley of songs on their road trip. Help me identify which songs they cover.

I counted 29 different songs. Did I miss any?

I've done my best to list each song and artist that they are singing, but my music knowledge is limited. Plus, they started going faster than I could write. Leave a comment and tell me which ones I got wrong or fill in the blanks for me.

Help me compile a list of the Best Road Trip Songs Ever - I think I may have a new iPod playlist in my future.

20. whats love got to do with it (Forgot the artist)

21. just the way you are by bruno mars i think

9. Hypnotize by The Notorious B.I.G.
SOMETHING BY QUEEN!!!!!

I know 'em all but looks like others got here first. ;)

 

I was only "mostly wrong"   (with a tip of the hat to Princess Bride) - - after a little more research it turns out that FUDDY DUDDY by Gucci Crew was a song thrown out in response to "La-Di-Da-Di" by Slick Rick & Doug E Fresh way back in 1989. 

Roll forward to April 1997 and the release of the album Life After Death following the death of Notorious B.I.G. and there you will indeed find him "sampling" of several classic rap tunes, including the original "La-DI-Da-DI" to which the lyrics are changed from "Ricky Ricky Ricky, can't you see?"  to  "Biggie Biggie Biggie, can't you see?" - - apparently the version that Rhett & Link are most familiar with.

 

And that's all for Today in Rap History.  Tune in tomorrow for an in-depth discussion of the classic hit song . . .

Many of the tunes that R&L chose to sing wouldn't exactly make it on my own personal list, but most of them are found here on another list as compiled by THE JETPACKER .  I did the math (that's what I do) and calculate that this list will give you 3 hours, 33 minutes and 20 seconds of unbridled driving euphoria.  ENJOY!

Great Job almost getting all the songs from the road trip right. I was really inpressed with Jetpacker's  top 50 till I saw #6 (ACDC Yuk!)  I would add Carefree Highway by Gordon Lightfoot, Anywhere But Here by kd lang, Nothing Left to lose by Matt Kearney, and (some people will groan but it's a guilty pleasure of mine) Runaway by Jefferson Starship
