I like big butts and I cannot lie...

My musicology may be off, but to the best of my knowledge, the musical expression of true fondness for large rear ends began in the rap genre. Perhaps the critical piece in this field is Sir-Mix-A-Lot's "Baby Got Back." Other (at least somewhat related) exemplars include Sisqo's, "The Thong Song" and whatever spawned the phrase, "Junk in the Trunk."

Until today, I thought this hysteria was primarily confined to rap. I was sorely mistaken. Today I was exposed to my new favorite song/monstrosity by "former college football player and oil rig roughneck," Trace Adkins. The illustrious song is "Honky Tonk Badonkadonk."

I am still reeling from the glory of these lyrics, and Trace's smooth baritone, so I'll simply nod to a few of the choicest phrases and now implore you all to download this gem.

"And whoo-wee
Shut my mouth, slap your grandma*
There ought-a be a law
Get the Sheriff on the phone
Lord have mercy, how'd she even get them britches on?"

*Is this a common phrase? I cannot endorse this type of abuse.

We can't forget Queen's 1978 hit Fat Bottomed Girls!

"Are you gonna take me home tonight?
Ah down beside that red firelight
Are you gonna let it all hang out?
Fat bottomed girls
You make the rockin' world go round."

a certain dirty p was too shy to post this himself but you should definitely check out the indie rock cover of Sir-Mix-A-Lot by Jonathan Coulton, www.jonathancoulton.com.
