20 Fingers feat. Gillette – “Mr. Personality” – (1995)

God, Gillette is so obnoxious. It’s really hard to think of another artist who can be so nerve-grating. The main vocals aren’t so bad – but when she raps – or even worse, when she laughs, it just makes me want to throw something at my speakers. That said, this song certainly has a certain catchiness to it. And that’s all this song really is – a catchy chorus and then Gillette yelling “yo mama” jokes at you. It’s like an insult song. But that was kind of 20 Fingers’ shtick: catchy pop/dance tunes (they were Dutch) accented by “humorous” lyrics. Things are open to interpretation almost 20 years later.
