The Top Ten
Where The Hell Is Babylon? - I explained this in the list description and now you know where it is. - Metal_Treasure
"And right now Babylon de pon me case"
The first song that came to my mind when I read the word Babylon. In 2005 - holy, that was 12 years ago, I'm getting old - this song was everywhere, and about two years later we sang this at school in English class. Which of course is hard because the chorus isn't in regular English but some slang that I as a non-native speaker don't know. I initially liked the song, but the group never had any other hit and even though it was very successful (quick check on Wikipedia tells me it peaked at number 1 in the charts) it completely vanished out of people's brain. Many 2000s pop hits still get airplay today but for whatever reason this doesn't. I almost forgot it.
Thanks for creating this list, so I could walk down memory lane a bit. - Martin_Canine
