* Todd demonstrating the [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic awesome]] instrumental break in Major Lazer and DJ Snake's "Lean On" by showing it intercut with his own piano cover of it, only for the two to eventually coalesce in perfect harmony. It ''really'' needs [[https://youtu.be/ds90m5dq6-I?t=5m12s to be heard]] to be believed. No doubt about it, "the finest twenty seconds in pop music of [2015]" done ''great'' justice.

* Him calling out "Girl Crush" by LittleBigTown in his Top Ten Worst Hit Songs of 2015 for pulling BaitAndSwitchLesbians. -->'''Todd''': I didn't think they could make a song about girl-on-girl that was more horseshit than [[KatyPerry "I Kissed a Girl"]], but Little Big Town pulled it off.

* The review of Magic!'s "Rude" has a great ending: [[spoiler: when Todd hears the line "but no still means no", he goes on a rant about how awful the narrator of the song is, and how he just can't take no for an answer. He says something akin to "who can't understand that 'no means no'", pauses, then leaves the room in disgust. It possibly implies that Todd just compared the narrator to Music/RobinThicke. That takes a lot of courage consider how big Rude was at the time and how it hasn't got half the controversy that Blurred Lines did.]]

* Todd's righteous fury at discovering BryanAdams forced [=AllMusic.com=] to delete any and all references to him and his career. He gets so disgusted and offended that he pretty much ends the 1991 retrospective right there.

* His words to Chris Brown while reviewing his atrocious single, "Deuces".

* His words to Chris Brown while reviewing his atrocious single, "Deuces". While Todd says that a person shouldn't pay for one crime for their entire lives, he considers the subject matter of the song so vile that he can't help but get even more angry at Chris Brown.

* "A woman is more than her body, Taylor." No further explanation is needed. ** In the same video, he displays to us how truly great of a critic he is by telling us a story about a girl he dated, and broke up with at a dance. The emotion in his voice is almost genuine and you really do believe him... then he reveals that that didn't happen to him at all, and he was describing an episode in ''SavedByTheBell''. Which is why he hates the song: his revealing that his story was bullshit made the story lose any and all emotional impact it had, because he's telling you to feel sad because he feels sad that the kid in that episode felt sad, and that is exactly what Taylor Swift herself is doing in that song: she wants you to feel sad that she feels sad that Abigail feels sad, and it's hard to feel sad at all because ''Taylor is telling a different girl's story''.

* In the video for Taylor Swift's "Fifteen," Todd comments "A woman is more than her body, Taylor." No further explanation is needed. ** In the same video, he displays to us how truly great of a critic he is by telling us a story about a girl he dated, and broke up with at a dance. The emotion in his voice is almost genuine and you really do believe him... then he reveals that that didn't happen to him at all, and he was describing an episode in ''SavedByTheBell''. ''Series/SavedByTheBell''. Which is why he Todd hates the song: his revealing that his story was bullshit happened to someone else made the story it lose any and all emotional impact it had, because he's Todd is telling you to feel sad because he feels sad that the kid in that episode felt sad, and that is sad. That's exactly what Taylor Swift herself is doing in that song: she wants you to feel sad that she feels sad that Abigail feels sad, song, and it's hard to feel sad at all because ''Taylor is telling a different girl's story''.

* After being persuaded by [[WebVideo/BrowsHeldHigh Kyle]] to continue his review of "Sexy and I Know It", Todd switches to Kyle's more academic, analytical style and gives an impressively solid critique of how insulting and damaging the underlying message of the song is (basically, that the idea of men being physically attractive is laughable). Of course, he then gives up again and declares that song "[[ShapedLikeItself sucks because it sucks]]", but the effort (he carries it on for ''five minutes'') at least made it clear that his hatred for the song was more than just a knee-jerk response. Bonus points for contrasting it against Right Said Fred's "I'm Too Sexy" and explaining in detail what that song did ''right''.

* His "review" of Chris Brown's "Turn Up The Music", in which he ''barely mentions'' the song itself and spends the rest of the video again explaining why Chris Brown is a terrible human being. The best part is that it's not just a "Chris Brown sucks" rant, but rather an eloquent yet enraged speech that discusses all the aspects that make Chris Brown's current presence in the media and so-called "forgiven" status by some fans and mainstream America completely unacceptable. It's truly a noteworthy video from Todd that shows he is intelligent and understands a large part of the general public's disgust with Brown.
