I really hate the Savage Garden song "Truly, Madly, Deeply" because it's whiney and the lyrics are stupid.
But I noticed it has a weird connection with Jon Snow and Ygritte's relationship on the last two episodes of "Game of Thrones."

DOMINO "SWEET POTATO PIE" by fonkeeman
I had kind of forgotten about Domino's "Sweet Potato Pie" until I heard it on the radio this morning. Back in the day, I thought this was the jam, but it doesn't sound quite as good as I recall.
I was under the impression that there was some subtley and cleverness to this song although that's definitely not the case. It's pretty blunt about what sweet potato pie is meant to be.
Not to mention, Domino would be laughed out of the building by rappers now. His wardrobe just makes him look like some sketchy homeless guy who happens to be rapping.
Dressing like that would not allow him to get a piece of anybody's sweet potato pie.

By now you've probably heard about Justin Bieber's infamous visit to the Anne Frank House.
Bieber signed the Anne Frank guest book with the message: "Truly inspiring to be able to come here. Anne was a great girl. Hopefully she would have been a belieber."
It would be easy to chalk this up to a mental lapse by a young kid but it isn't.
Thought Catalog gathered what they considered to be the 30 best quotes from Bieber, and it's not pretty. Bieber seems to have a history of not really thinking before saying stuff.
Some of his gems include:
"I don't really believe in abortion. It's like killing a baby."
"I'm not sure about parties. But whatever they have in Korea, that's bad."
"Sunday comes after Saturday. Weird?"
"A girl could be sitting on her computer, trying to get noticed by me, and not knowing she's the future Mrs. Bieber"
"As hard as I've tried, I don't know how not to be adorable."

For some reason this year's March Madness doesn't seem as pop culture friendly as last year's but there are still some trends:
1. That's Stupid Bud Light Blind Date Commercial
Like every year, there is one commercial they play over and over again until it inspires murderous rage. This year it's the Bud Light blind date commercial. Everything about it is annoying.
That guy probably can't go back to Cleveland because he was stupid enough to order a Bud Light and tell women he's glad they're not ugly. Also, what place has waiters pour Bud Light bottles into a glass for you?

The best version of the song "Come on Eileen" is a pop culture issue that needs to be answered.
British pop group Dexy's Midnight Runners recorded the original song in 1982 and it became a number one hit.
Theoretically that should make it the best version since it's kind of blasphemous to claim a cover of a song is better than the original, but it's not that simple.

One of the best "The Simpsons" episodes is season 5's "Deep Space Homer" when Homer becomes an astronaut and goes on a space mission.
It features a scene stealing cameo by James Taylor including this great piece of dialogue:
" Listen Aldrin I'm not as laid back as people think. Now here's the deal, I'm gonna play and you're gonna float there and like it."
The writer of this episode, David Mirkin details working with his hero James Taylor, and worrying that Taylor might not like the script.

There are some ugly uniforms, but the new Adidas college basketball ones have to be among the worst of all time.
It's as if the designer got high and convinced himself that everybody missed Zubaz pants. This is truly a step back for mankind.
According to USA Today, Adidas somehow convinced various teams to wear these things except for Michigan and N.C. State who were smart enough to decline.
In case you forgot what Zubaz pants were, here's my breakdown of their history and awfulness.
The only positive in all this is that you can channel your inner Milhouse and say this about Zubaz.
