“STACY’S MOM” FOUNTAINS OF WAYNE
Rachel Hunter, ex-wife of Rod Stewart and ex-girlfriend of Kip Winger, will forever be known as the hottest mom of 2003. Her cameo in the video for Fountains Of Wayne’s only Top 10 hit was legendary. After the video’s release, Rachel actually hated her new found notoriety as her children were teased about her mom’s sexy body and outfits. The video parodies the 80’s movie classic, Fast Times At Ridgemont High.
“TELL ME” SMILEZ AND SOUTHSTAR
The Orlando rap duo hit the Top 40 and scored a Top 10 Urban Radio hit with “Tell Me” in December 2002. The song sampled the Motown hit, “Stop Look & Listen” by Marvin Gaye and Diana Ross. The smooth R&B groove was the perfect backing track to a hip hop song. So much so that Ja Rule and Ashanti used the same sample on “Mesmerize”. The controversy actually hurt Smilez and Southstar and they never charted again.
