If I needed a reminder that I haven't kept up with today's music, hereunder the proof -- the top ten songs downloaded from the net in 2008:
Rank Song Artist
1 Low Flo Rida Featuring T-Pain
2 Bleeding Love Leona Lewis
3 Lollipop Lil Wayne Featuring Static Major
4 I Kissed a Girl Katy Perry
5 Viva La Vida Coldplay
6 Love Song Sara Bareilles
7 Apologize Timbaland Featuring OneRepublic
8 No Air Jordin Sparks Duet With Chris Brown
9 Disturbia Rihanna
10 4 Minutes Madonna Featuring Justin Timberlake
Not only didn't I download any of these, I cannot claim to have even heard of most of the artists, much less heard these songs. Yeah, I know who Madonna and Timberlake are; Coldplay, and because we have the last name and she's being flacked for the Grammy Awards, Katy Perry.
Even heard of Lil Wayne, but there was a time when I knew all the artists and songs that graced the top forty, and if I didn't know all the words to each, could fake it well enough to sing along.
Move over, T-Rex ...
