Songs That Were All About That Bass Before "All About That Bass."

Making this list has been No Treble at all.
  1. All That Meat and No Potatoes (Fats Waller, 1941)
    Self-explanatory. From the well-known folk idiom.
  2. Work With Me, Annie (Hank Ballard and the Midnighters, 1954)
    "Annie, please don't cheat/Give me all my meat." Here, "meat" might refer to any one of several possible things, but Annie's caboose is a definite contender. See "All That Meat and No Potatoes," above.
  3. Vicki Dougan (The Limeliters, 1961)
    "Vicki, turn your back on me/Oh, my darling, just for me..." Hint: Vicki did NOT have a really cool tattoo on her back.
  4. Allan Sherman's Molly Malone (1962)
    "She wheels her wheelbarrow through streets that are narrow/Her barrow is narrow, her hips are too wide..." Sure, it's a parody, but so what?
  5. Big Bottom (Spinal Tap, 1984)
    "My baby fits me like a flesh tuxedo/I like to sink her with my pink torpedo..." The white "Work With Me, Annie."
  6. Baby Got Back (Sir Mix-a-Lot, 1992)
    You all know the lyrics to this one.
  7. Suggestions, anyone? Extra credit for anyone who comes up with a song about a guy with a big ass.
