“Baby Got Back” is an oddity. There are tons of older songs that still get played for their kitch value. For example: ANY New Kids on the Block Song; “You Can’t Touch This” by MC Hammer; and of course, “Ice, Ice Baby.”
What’s odd about “Baby Got Back” is that unlike NKOTB people actually seem to still like the song. When it’s randomly played at a club or wedding reception or someone tries to do a horrible karaoke rendition, the cheers seem to be genuine. The kitch is still very much a factor but nobody seems to have anything really bad to say about the song.
Am I wrong about this song? If I’m not are there any other songs that people listen to for the kitch without actually despising it. And hell, if you DO have something negative to say about Sir Mixalot’s opus, let’s hear it.
