Easier Right Said Fred Than Done

On this date 14 years ago Right Said Fred's "I'm Too Sexy" reached #1 on Billboard Magazine's Hot 100 list. What a great Valentine's Day gift!

It's one of those songs that quickly permeated all aspects of pop culture. Love it or hate it, you could name that tune in about four notes. In the long run I think most people hated it. At least Blender Magazine despised it — Blender listed "I'm Too Sexy" at #49 on its 2004 list of all-time worst songs.

TV writers often play these hit songs in show ep titles. So imagine my surprise when I searched for "too sexy" in the trivialTV database and only discovered three series that acknowledged this certifiable song:
  • I'm Too Sexy for My Brother (''The Wayans Brothers,'' 1/25/1995)
  • I'm Too Sexy for This Shot (''The Jamie Foxx Show,'' 5/3/1998)
  • He's Too Sexy for His Fat (''Family Guy,'' 6/27/2000)
