late night infomercial style (what beast? what number?)

if you've ever sat up at night, trying to find something good on tv, and instead ended up transfixed by one of those 10 cd sets called "amazing super hits from the 70s" or "happy time 60s" then that's probably a good part of the reason why you and i get along. as you may have noticed over the course of the past few days, i have a tendancy to go for the cheesiest cheese that ever cheesed. mostly, i like singing along to it. but there's also the fact that, for the most part, these are actually good songs. it's just really hard for most lovers of music to admit to loving something so very cheesy. (but if hipsters could love since u been gone, why can't they take, say captain and tenille seriously?). anyway, of the 5 songs featured here today, one instantly takes me back to doing karaoke with michelle in halifax, one makes me think of both singing in a stairwell and the mini pops, one is currently my favourite late night sing along in the car song, one reminds me of the cd collection infomercial starring a former brady, and one is just a good song that is so completely over the top it's awesome. see if you can sort out which is which.
(and if you are wondering about the picture, i read a confusing article in the local paper today that said instead of worrying about the apocalypse, the farmers almanac thinks we should be more concerned with squirrels. i can buy that, they were looking at me funny when i was outside this afternoon.)
