May as well get the really obnoxious bit out of the way first:
I signed up as an EMusic affiliate, you see. Although they claim to offer the ability to create links directly to a particular song or artist, this does not appear to be the case. So the charts were the least unpleasant of the alternatives.
Currently, the number one song is "Here Comes Your Man" by The Pixies, which probably says something about their demographics.
Luckily, I think it's something good.
(Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive" is number 7, which also says something, but let's just ignore that for the moment. . .)
It's the original, 1987 recording, rather than the one on Doolittle, if that counts for anything. The self-titled pseudo-album it's on is currently number two on that chart.
Number one is a compilation called "Awesome 80's", featuring songs which were not only played to death back in the day, but are being played to death all over again on stations desperately going for those tall Yanqui Gen-X nostalgia dollars.
Unlike me and EMusic, who provide this service as a convenience to you.
Quarterflash's "Harden My Heart". These must be the End Times. I can't imagine how things could possibly get any worse.
To any Gods who might be reading, that was not a challenge.
