TOO SEXY SAID FRED
In 1992, Right Said Fred, a duo out of England, had a tongue and cheek hit called "Too Sexy" in the United States. Initially, I did not particular like the song, thinking that it was a pure pop non-sensible song. However, after learning that the duo sang the song from the point of view of nihilistic male model, my impressions changed. Now I consider it one of the top 100 songs of the 1990s. The song is reminiscent of the song #Selfie by the Chainsmokers, that is a parody out of the nihilistic behavior of young beautiful women right now. The song also has a catchy beat and a sense of humor. After expressing that he is "too sexy" for numerous things such as his cat and his car, the song ends with the line "I'm too sexy for this song".
