19. General Public
"Tenderness" (1984, Number 27) and "I'll Take You There" (1994, Number 22)
After brilliant ska-pop revivalists the English Beat dissolved, Dave Wakeling and Ranking Roger hooked up with a pair of Dexy's Midnight Runners, the Specials' bassist, and the Clash's Mick Jones. The buoyant "Tenderness" was General Public 1.0's legacy. A decade later, with all new musicians, Wakeling and Roger returned to the charts by revamping a Staple Singers hit and landing on the soundtrack to the tepid Gen Xploitation flick Threesome – in its climactic scene, Stephen Baldwin lets Josh Charles touch his butt while both dudes are simultaneous sexing Lara Flynn Boyle.
