These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Crowning Music of Awesome: Quite a bit. "Everyday People," "I Want To Take You Higher," "Hot Fun in the Summertime," "Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin)", "Family Affair." Most of Stand! and There's A Riot Goin' On counts as this.
Sampled Up: How many people recognized "Trip to Your Heart" in LL Cool J's "Mama Said Knock You Out?"
Seinfeld Is Unfunny: There simply had never been an interracial/mixed-gender group that had been able to cross over the way they did before them.
Vindicated by History: There's A Riot Goin' On received mixed reviews at the time but is viewed more positively today.
