“Fame ’90” addenda

The Angels

It’s been a while since I last updated the “Fame ’90” 90, my list of date-flagged song updates by singers unashamed of self-exploitation.

I’d like to say it’s because I was so thorough the first time around — ’cause I was — but the truth is that until somebody creates a Wikipedia list for these things or I have a really, really clever eureka about search terms (song + title + new + year + suck?), it’s hard to find them. So here are the ones I’ve stumbled upon recently.

C’mon and help expand the list. You know that somewhere under your bed or behind the bookcase is a dusty CD with “Shout at the Devil ’97” or “Rhythm Is a Dancer ’96.”

Special award to Sergio Mendes for the consistent updates of his band: Brasil ’65, Brasil ’66, Brasil ’77, Brasil ’86, Brasil ’88, Brasil ’99.

Here’s “My Boyfriend’s Back ’08”:
