Now it’s the Billboard top One-Hit Wonders of the Aughts, and I have to say I’m flummoxed. First, I’m going to say that Gnarls Barkley should not be considered with these other no-talent hacks, because their second CD was great (but then I suppose someone could argue the same thing about any of the others, so I guess I will shut up. Second, this list is at least as much a testimony to bad songs as it is to my apparent inattention to pop radio for the last decade, because I only recognize maybe one-fifth of the songs on this list. I don’t necessarily feel bad about ignorance, though it definitely pokes some holes in my theory that I am some sort of pop culture maven.
