Why are his induction chances set to 17%? Granted, a third of the morons here voted yes, so that increases it to an extent, but those in charge of the site should have started him with a 0%. I don't have to argue that he did nothing influential, but he also did nothing popular, aside from that one atrocious single, to even earn any percentage points.

His one song is indeed mediocre - as a song - but as the backdrop to a movie short, I could see it working.

The O'Jays and Percy Sledge are in, and they only had one hit.

Wrong SSR. Percy Sledge had numerous hits other then "When a Man Loves a Woman" the best ones being "Warm and Tender Love" and "My Special Prayer."

My understanding is that "When A Man loves A Woman" was the first number one hit for Atlantic Records. The founders of Atlantic Records were also founders of...you guessed it...The Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame!!! They should've tried to be a little less obvious!! Sledge's other "hits" never reached the top 10.

The O'Jays also had several other hits. "For The Love Of Money," "Back Stabbers," "Use Ta Be My Girl." I believe those all made the Top Ten on the Hot 100 as well.

The O'Jays had 10 top 40 hits, I think. "Back Stabbers" and "Love Train" (their only NO. 1 hit) were written by Gamble & Huff, who also produced a lot of their albums, and were inducted into the RRHOF last year. I didn't really agree with the O'Jays' induction, either. I liked their music a lot, but I don't think they were nearly innovative or influential enough. They were part of the "Sound of Philadelphia" along with the Stylistics, Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes, etc...all similar in style, and all popular at about the same time.

Kinda got off the Sir Mix-A-Lot subject. Goes to show how important his contributions have been...
Posted by Gitarzan on Sunday, 07.27.08 @ 09:16am
Actually Sledge's "Warm and Tender Love" was #2
Posted by That Guy on Wednesday, 08.27.08 @ 13:05pm
Correction That Guy it was #5. However "It Tears Me up" was #7 and "Take Time to Know Her" was #6

I can't believe how many people are calling Mixalot a one hit wonder. My Posse's On Broadway was a national hit long before Baby Got Back. In fact, he had two platinum albums before the album that contained the "one hit" that people are mentioning. I'm not saying he is HOF material, but he's definitely NOT a one hit wonder.

If he's the "Sir" of anything it's of crap
