9. Taco - 'Puttin' On The Ritz'
Really, people? You're gonna hate on poor Taco? All he has is "Putting' On The Ritz" and you're going to take that away from him? It's not even his song. Irving freakin' Berlin wrote this song in 1929. Everybody from Ella Fitzgerald to Fred Astaire to Judy Garland recorded it. In the 1980s, über-European performer Taco recorded this sweet/creepy synthpop version of it. And it's awesome. I say everybody who voted for this song is wrong.
