ya, much as i like your loosening the OHW criteria to 'mostly known for', i cant say which of their Top Two that would be

"Our House" peaked at #7 and charted for 19 weeks

"It Must Be Love" peaked at #33 and charted for 12 weeks

"The Sun And The Rain" peaked at #72 and charted for 5 weeks

...that's all I see for the US Billboard Top 100 ...they likely had more in the UK.

All these Stevie picks make me nervous that I'd better take this right now. 11.02  Stevie Wonder - Sir Duke (1977) I'm taking this on the single, not the album, release date.  And some versi

Time for another all-timer for my theme. This is another absolutely stacked year for me, but I’d be bummed big time if I couldn’t get this on my jukebox playlist. Yo Mama selects:   9.23 - M

33.xx I Wanna Hold Your Hand (US B-side - I Saw Her Standing There), Beatles (1963)

Going to finish up strong today with two of my favorite songs from the ‘10s decade. First one is from my favorite newer hip hop group. I find this song the most powerful storytelling of their catalog. Yo Mama selects:


49.ym - Run the Jewels - Early (2014)

 

Man I love this song.  Posting more lyrics than normal because this one hits hard.

 

It be feelin' like the life that I'm livin' a man I don't control
Like every day I'm in a fight for my soul
Could it be that my medicine's the evidence
For pigs to stop and frisk me when they rollin' round on patrol?
And ask "why you're here?" I just tell 'em cause it is what it is
I live here and that's what it is
He chimed "you got a dime?
I said "Man, I'm tryin' to smoke and chill
Please don't lock me up in front of my kids
And in front of my wife, man, I ain't got a gun or a knife
You do this and you ruin my life
And I apologize if it seems like I got out of line, sir
'Cause I respect the badge and the gun
And I pray today ain't the day that you drag me away
Right in front of my beautiful son"
And he still put my hands in cuffs, put me in the truck
When my woman screamed, said "shut up"
Witness with the camera phone on
Saw the copper pull a gun and put it on my gorgeous queen
As I peered out the window
I could see my other kinfolk and hear my little boy as he screamed
As he ran toward the copper begged him not to hurt his momma
'Cause he had her face down on the ground
And I'd be much too weak to ever speak what I seen
But my life changed with that sound

Get out, get out, get out, get out
Feeling this, feeling this too early

And lettin' me BALL on these #####s

Pull up in the Phantom watch them #####es catch the holy ghost
Everytime I step up in the dealer I be goin' broke
Shorty wanna #### me I say get on top and rollercoast
And I lay back, she go cray
#### me good, but she no stay
Murder on that ##### let her boyfriend get that DOA
Get it? And all I get is Frito Lay
Plus I'm on probation, when they test me I just pee Rozay
Cause last night, I went hard, Peach Ciroc, Patron and all
Thirty racks on Magnum bottles, I think I was born to ball
Lookin' like a million plus, fresh I'm out that corner store
Hater I be doin' me, you guys should be doin' y'all
I'm stackin' money to the ceiling
All this ice that's in my Rollie I be chillin'
And I just made a couple million
So I could take care of them children

Now it's a lot of bad #####es in the building (Ooh, Amen)
A couple real #####s in the building (Amen)
I'm finna kill #####s in the building (Amen)
I tell the waiter fifty bottles and she tell me say when

Just bought my #####s some cane, so much it came with a plane
Bought my #####s some dope, so much it came with a boat
I just bought me a crib so big it came with a moat
For #####s jumpin' the fence I hope you #####s can float
And I just hope that I'm forgiven for carin' 'bout how they livin'
And loanin' a little money and keepin' 'em out of prison
I ain't lyin' in my verses I'm just telling you the basics
Of growin' up with your friends and becoming the one that made it, Yes lord!
All gold, man I got these #####es soul
Talkin' bout these other rappers getting old is even getting old
Worry 'bout your followers, you need to get your dollars up
Me and Meek, young #####s poppin' like our collars up
And good ain't good enough, and your hood ain't hood enough
Spend my whole life putting on, you spend your whole life putting up
Ain't no telling when I go, so there ain't #### that I'mma wait for
I'm the type to say a prayer, then go get what I just prayed for
#####, church

Lord forgive me for my sins, I'm just tryna win
And she a devil in that dress but if she knock I let her in
And if she knock I let her in
I had her up by 12 o clock, then 3 o clock she wet again
I'm screamin' "Oh Lord"
That ##### good, that ##### good
I'm tryin to hold on
I wish I could, you think I should?
She got that million dollar body
Shawty my Bugatti
And she said she got a man
We keep it secret illuminati
(Got Patron On deck)
And Ciroc all in my bottle
(Push it all on here)
She was on that Repressitol
(She take it all off)
And I take her off
And this ##### spinnin' like I hit the lotto

48.ee - NYC Song - John Cafferty & the Beaver Brown Band- (Eddie and the Cruisers) (1989)

From the soundtrack of Eddie and the Cruisers II: Eddie Lives!.  Back at the start of the draft when my gimmick was young, I had big plans to watch Eddie and the Cruisers.  I found a low quality stream but never got around to it.

I did skim through both soundtrack albums.  The first one is a better collection of songs but is marred by an anachronistic big 80s sound.  Cafferty is a better singer than songwriter but it helps when he's doing a straight ripoff like this.  It copies "4th of July, Asbury Park's" sound and adds lyrics about Eddie/Springsteen/Cafferty leaving his boardwalk town behind and heading to New York City with a guitar in my hand.  Very meta.

@Pip's Invitation I went back and forth between this masterpiece and Neil Young's "Someday" but I couldn't get past the weird background grunts in the chorus.

49.ee - Looking for a Love - The J. Geils Band (1971)

J. Geils emerged from the same Northeastern club scene a few years before Springsteen did.  They both made their reputations with energetic live shows and share some of the same musical influences.  It's not the tightest of connections but the song is a scorcher that matches the vibe of my juke and the Boss and Peter Wolf are buddies these days.

Maybe wikkidpissah has some stories of these guys.

48th Round  Colin Hay - Overkill (acoustic version) (2003)

This is one that I knew from the beginning I wanted to take, but I was waiting to see how my years would shake out in order to determine whether I'd take the original or this acoustic version.  Having used the year of the original, I'm "stuck" with the acoustic that I think I love more anyway.  

It's a shame that Men At Work weren't taken seriously due to the land down under and such, because Hay is a giant talent and this song in particular displays it.  Check out this super-cool choir version from a few years ago!

Hay has been a member of Ringo's 8th, 10th, 13th, and 14th All-Starr Bands and continues to be a member of this current iteration.

Wine is being poured!  Chinese is being ordered!

Well, when I met you at the station
You were standing with a bootleg in your hand
I took you back to my little place
For a taste of a multicolored band
We're gonna get hi hi hi
The night is young
She'll be my funky little mama
Gonna rock it and we've only just begun

We're gonna get hi hi hi
With the music on
Won't say bye bye bye bye bye bye bye bye
'Til the night is gone
I'm gonna do it to you, gonna do it
Sweet banana, you'll never give up
We're gettin' hi hi hi in the midday sun

I think you can use the mulligan after you've made pick #50.

On the first part, I'm not quite sure what you're looking for.  Did I win?

Pick 50 - Rikki Don’t Lose that Number - Steely Dan - 1974

 

MPH - JUKEBOX - 52Girls  clocking in at 3hrs and 10mins....

 

Quote

"Rikki Don't Lose That Number" is a single released in 1974 by rock/jazz rock group Steely Dan and the opening track of their third album Pretzel Logic. It was the most successful single of the group's career, peaking at number 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the summer of 1974
 

Rikki Don't Lose That Number" - Single by Steely DaN - 

B-side"Any Major Dude Will Tell You"

ReleasedApril 25, 1974

Format7" single

Length3:58 (Single version)
4:30 (Album version)

LabelABC

Songwriter(s)Walter Becker, Donald Fagen

Producer(s)Gary Katz


(1974)

The song features Jim Gordon on drums, as does the bulk of the Pretzel Logic album. The guitar solo is by Jeff "Skunk" Baxter who would soon go on to join The Doobie Brothers.

Victor Feldman's flapamba[2] (a variant of the marimba) introduction to the song, which opens the album, is cut from the original ABC single version. The MCA single reissue (backed with "Pretzel Logic") includes the flapamba intro but fades out just before the actual end of the track. The introductory riff is an almost direct copy of the intro of Horace Silver's jazz classic "Song for My Father" - spotify link.[3]
 

Just to clear up a generation's worth of rumors about the lyrics of "Rikki Don't Lose That Number," Walter Becker stated for the record in a 1985 interview in the pages of Musician that the "number" in question was not slang for a marijuana cigarette ("send it off in a letter to yourself," supposedly a way to safely transport one's dope back before the post office abolished general delivery mail, was held up as the key line), and an uncharacteristically forthcoming Donald Fagen has similarly revealed that the "Rikki" in question was simply a woman he'd had a crush on in college. It says something about Steely Dan's reputation as obscurantists that even a straightforward lost-love song like "Rikki Don't Lose That Number" could be so widely over-interpreted. ... It's unsurprising that "Rikki Don't Lose That Number" ended up becoming Steely Dan's biggest commercial hit ... as it's one of the group's most gentle and accessible songs.[4]

 

 

We hear you're leaving, that's okay
I thought our little wild time had just begun
I guess you kind of scared yourself, you turn and run
But if you have a change of heart

Rikki don't lose that number
You don't want to call nobody else
Send it off in a letter to yourself
Rikki don't lose that number
It's the only one you own
You might use it if you feel better
When you get home

I have a friend in town, he's heard your name
We can go out driving on Slow Hand Row
We could stay inside and play games, I don't know
And you could have a change of heart

Rikki don't lose that number
You don't want to call nobody else
Send it off in a letter to yourself
Rikki don't lose that number
It's the only one you own
You might use it if you feel better
When you get home

You tell yourself you're not my kind
But you don't even know your mind
And you could have a change of heart

Rikki don't lose that number
You don't want to call nobody else
Send it off in a letter to yourself
Rikki don't lose that number
It's the only one you own
You might use it if you feel better
When you get home

Can’t think of a better way to finish off my playlist than this. Yo Mama selects:

 

50.ym - Lauryn Hill - Black Rage (2012)

 

Lauryn dedicated this song (to the tune of Favorite Things) to the BLM protests in Ferguson in 2014.  The video linked to was in conjunction with these protests (beware some graphic images). 
 

Thanks @Eephus for running the show!

 

@krista4 wanted lyrics, well here’s a lot of italicized lyrics. 
 

BLACK RAGE is founded on two-thirds a person
Rapings and beatings and suffering that worsens,
Black human packages tied up in strings.
BLACK RAGE can come from all these kinds of things
Black Rage is founded on blatant denial
Squeezing economics, subsistence survival,
Deafening silence and social control.
Black Rage is founded on wounds in the soul!

When the dogs bite
When the beatings
When I'm feeling sad
I simply remember all these kinds of things
and then I don't fear so bad!

Black rage is founded: who fed us self-hatred
Lies and abuse, while we waited and waited
Spiritual treason, This grid and its cages
Black rage was founded on these kinds of things

Black rage is founded on draining and draining
Threatening your freedom, To stop your complaining
Poisoning your water, While they say it's raining
Then call you mad for complaining, complaining
Old time bureaucracy drugging the youth
Black rage is founded on blocking the truth,
Murder and crime, Compromise and distortion
Sacrifice, sacrifice who makes this fortune?
Greed, falsely called progress
Such human contortion,
Black rage is founded on these kinds of things

I'm having a hard time deciding on the 49th song, but I decided to roll with this one. Most people know it, and it's a nice song to sing along to. 

Round 49

A Long December - Counting Crows (1996)


And it's been a long December and there's reason to believe
Maybe this year will be better than the last
I can't remember all the times I tried to tell my myself
To hold on to these moments as they pass

HAPPINESS IS DA TROOF!

50.xx Happy, Pharrell Williams (2013)

When I was a meth-addicted, poker-playing, wife-burying mess of a human being, I carried a lot of tension in my body. Monthly, i would go to this beautiful, enormous, earthmother hippie chick for a Shiatsu. At a point about 2/3 of the way thru, all that verklemptitude would rush out of me in volcanic sighs of grief and a lavaflow of tears. Soon as the lacrima would cool upon my cheeks, a psychotically cleansing burst of joy would take its place. Watching this vid transistorizes that catharsis for me, so i promised myself that, even though 2003's Hey Ya was intended as the newest song in the misbegotten Oasis Diner Jukebox, i'd make this my last pick if it was available. Fun sharing this w y'all. Thx again, Eeph.

I listened to about half your playlist (stopped at Word Up) and enjoyed it so far other a rap track. This is from 1971 and may fit with your mix.

Yeah it’s not necessarily a relaxing listen. Some nice chill songs if you don’t listen to the lyrics to closely though.

49. Wyclef - Jaspora

1997

Classic album and one where my favorite songs are the ones in French.

Jaspora ha ha, oh la men
Mape pran li jete il prizon
Map fè'l konnen kiles ki Tousen
Map fè'l konnen kiles ki Desalin
Apre sa nous mèt lage'l voyel back Brooklyn
Pou la'l jwenn manman'n kap fe manje nan kwizin
Mannan'n gade li di ti gason ou chanje
Li di mwen chanje paske se Ayitien mwen ye
Yo te ban mwen yon leson, yo te mete'm nan prison
Mwen wè dyaspora fi, dyaspora gason
Gen sa ki pap toune ape domi a pwason
Yo pedi konesans kankou yo fèt san relijyon

I never promised I would be posting good lyrics, only that they would be italicized.

 

Tell me what it's like
Looking out of eyes
Like the likes of yours
Do you find it so surprising
That the likes of me
Likes the likes of you?
I still love you, yes, I do
All my time on earth
Will belong to you till the end of the passage
My little koala type bear
Little koala type bear

:X

Wasnt easy but I did it. 50 1 hit wonders,25 dance/25 rock,24 make vocals/24 female and 2 instrumentals.

Going to use my mulligan but not sure where yet. Hoping the beer and weed speak to me.

Well, I called my congressman
And he said, quote:
"I'd like to help you, son
But you're too young to vote"

All right, I'm gonna drop a ####-ton of Afrobeat on you.  Hey, at 12+ minutes, it's still the second-shortest track on the record!

50th Round  Fela Ransome-Kuti and The Africa '70 with Ginger Baker - Black Man's Cry (1971)

While Paul and the rest of Wings were in Nigeria recording Band on the Run, Fela Kuti publicly announced that Paul was there to "steal the black man's music."  Paul, who'd previously gone to see one of Kuti's shows and had been moved to tears by it, invited Kuti to the studio to listen to what they were recording and prove that they had no so intention.  This seemed to ease the tensions as the two became friends, and Paul recounted a story of later smoking with Kuti the strongest pot he ever had in his life. 

Ginger Baker had been working with Kuti (including on the live show from which this selection stems) and offered to let Paul and crew come to his studio to record instead of Lagos, where they were, among other things, kidnapped at knifepoint.  The band went for one day to Baker's studio in Ikeja and recorded the song, "Picasso's Last Words," featuring legendary drummer Baker on...gravel?  Yep, his role was to shake a bag of gravel.  

Baker later also collaborated with Ringo as a guest in Ringo's Fourth and Fifth All-Starr Bands.

Sorry, I'm just posting whichever song is playing at the moment.  These are better.  I really liked the bolded line:

I don't care what you want to be
I go back so far, I'm in front of me
It doesn't matter what they say
They're giving the game away hey hey

I can see the world tonight
Look into the future
See it in a different light
I can see the world tonight
