The difference between me and Micah (aside from his being a heathen gentile): I recognized exactly three of those songs. To be fair, I may have heard some others on that list, but I couldn't place a tune with a name on any of them.

Ha! I recognized 4. Were it not for the two piano-playing guys, I'd have recognized...uh, one. Further proof of Micah's music cred, I guess.

True story: at one point "Since U Been Gone" cracked my top 25. Out of embarrasment and disgust I deleted it from my library, only to reimport it later. Should it make the top 25 again, I'll repeat the process.

Spice of life, my friends. Spice of life...

As for "Sine U Been Gone" (when did Kelly Clarkson turn into Prince with bad grammar?), I wouldn't be ashamed. I've read some stuff in magazines where the indie kids - and artists - unironically love that song. Personally, I've only heard the snippet played at the Grammys, but I'd like to hear more.

There's no shame in liking a good pop song.

It's sad, but that whole "Top 25" thing may be my favorite feature of the iPod.

I hung out with my buddy's family yesterday. He has a cousin named--I'm not joking here--Kelly Clarkson. Fortunately, she's old enough to not have been named after the American Idol graduate of the same name.

And yes, CB, she's in high school, so you're all clear.

i know most of the names, none of the songs.

and i thought that was avril lavigne doing 'since u been gone.'

I know 5 of these songs easily! And ha, I just made a post about my iPod too!

Well, Apple's got 80+% of the market share, so I doubt we're the only ones making iPod posts. :)
