Page 2 of 3

10. Miles Davis - "JoJo"

Yes, it has a smooth jazz feel not far off from the Kenny G we scorn, but still it's Miles Davis. The fact that he lived long enough to appear on the Arsenio Hall show is incredible. It's like hearing Johnny Carson will be tomorrow night's guest on Jimmy Kimmel.

9. Dinosaur Jr. & Del Tha Funkee Homosapien - "Missing Link"

This foreshadows Del's genre-breaking collaborations with the Gorillaz. He performs this song from the Judgment Night soundtrack with indie stalwarts Dinosaur Jr.

8. Black Sheep - "The Choice Is Yours"

Sonny, let me tell you of a time before Twitter and iPhones. When all you needed were two men, two microphones, and a backing track to entertain the crowd, and we liked it.
