Personal fave.

Cute, but not as good as the rap one, which seemed to have more attention paid to actually having the charts work as charts, if that makes any sense.

I remember a few years ago seeing a site that completely deconstructed the pop song, showing all the design elements (hook, one unintelligible lyric, etc, etc). Was never able to find it since then.

I really want to like these, but most of them are really, really bad. Aside from "Don't Cry For Me, Argentina," linked above, though, I did enjoy these two.

Rickrolled, dope.

I'm not a huge fan of this one, but what did they use to make that pie chart - that's beautiful. Anybody know?

The ones that are good are great, but the ones that miss the mark really miss the mark.

The I Will Survive timeline and Friday I'm in Love schedule calendar are unique takes on the chart idea.

The Argentina one is good, but is partly ruined by the assumption that, absent instruction, a country should cry.

Chips Ahoy, are you perhaps referring to the KLF's staggering and ridiculous document "The Manual"?

I don't understand most of these. Without a cheat sheet, they're just going to drive me crazy.

I'm sad to see just how many people do not understand how Venn Diagrams work.

Stumbled on this kind of late, but I'm really enjoying it. The Argentina one had everyone here laughing.
