100. 3OH!3 – “My First Kiss” f/ Ke$ha

It seems all the 90’s dance songs are only on the list because the original writer is sick of them being played at weddings.  Lots of them are dumb songs, but some songs are about having fun – not waxing philosophical. The song I disagree with the most strongly is Hanson’s “MMMBop” – yeah, it’s pop, but it’s brilliant pop music.  I am shocked Ke$ha only made the list once, though, for her song with 3OH!3.  Your thoughts?
