She also had R.E.M. - It's the End of the World and Seether - Rise above This. Another one that's new to me.

Ooh - Paper Planes by MIA. There's a self made video for this on YouTube that is rather unfortunate.

Yes, I'm still going as I still have more to do at work.

A new one: Metro Station - Shake It. Are you surprised it'a a dance tune?

I liked Pink initially, but after the fourth play today, I'm over the song.

More Rihanna, in case I'd missed her in the past 70 minutes.

Jonas Brothers - Burnin' Up. Nice use of the apostrophe
Secondhand Serenade again - does nothing for me
Linkin Park - What I've Done (still not a fan)
Chris Brown yet again.

And ads.

I get excited when September's Cry for You starts, because they've sampled Bronski Beat and I'm hopeful a favorite from the 80s is actually getting airplay. No such luck.

After September was

Katy Perry - Hot N Cold
Buckcherry - Sorry
Kardinal Offishall - Dangerous (w/ Akon) (5th time!)
Paramore - Misery Business
Christina Aguilera - Keeps Gettin' Better (I know who she is!)
Ne-Yo - Closer (Starts off like it might be a good dance song, but then looses the bass. It just doesn't seem right.)
Helen Reddy - I Am Woman (for like 20 seconds - I don't know what the DJ was doing)
Pink - So What (I think I've learned the words, now)
Kevin Rudolf - Let It Rock (w/ Lil Wayne)

I stopped by the bookstore at that point, and missed a few. Jesse McCartney and Saving Able, I'll just have to learn about you later. Don't worry, Rihanna, The Pussycat Dolls, and Secondhand Serenade - I didn't miss you. I am sad I missed Coolio - Fantastic Voyage, though.

To finish up the day, I'm listening to the "Popularity Contest" - the top 8 countdown. Any guesses on number 1?

5. Katy Perry - Hot N Cold
4. Nickelback - Gotta Be Somebody

The total is 30 minutes this morning. 6 hours at work and on the way home, and 30 minutes to finish up the night.

In those 7 hours, I'm now back in touch with popular music in Raleigh/Durham. I can't say that I've been missing anything. I'd forgotten how limited FM playlists are. Growing up, I guess I only listened for an hour in the morning, and another couple of hours in the afternoon/evening, so I didn't now how much it repeated.

Wherle, I can't imagine having to play these songs routinely. Shudder.

Since you may know that DJs (other than at woxy) never seem to announce songs, how did I know what was playing, especially if I'd never heard it before? I'd like to thank yes.com, which tracks playlists for many stations in the country. They also have an automated chart of the 100 most played tracks for this station. Some entries I could have tolerated, but didn't hear today:

37. The Killers - Mr. Brightside (That's right, a 4 year old song is still in their top 40 rotation)
45. John Mayer - Your Body Is A Wonderland (overplayed - and now I know why - but I still like him)
60. Live - Lightning Crashes (wow - that's an old one for this demographic!)
71. Outkast - Hey Ya! (it still makes me dance)
74. Train - Meet Virginia (again terribly overplayed, but it makes me laugh for multiple inside jokes)
85. Green Day - When I Come Around (yep, ancient Green Day)
89. Green Day - Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life) (even more!)
100. House Of Pain - Jump Around (what?!)

You can check out their entire 214 track playlist.

Guess who the lead singer is? Miley Cyrus's older brother.

Wherle, I can't imagine having to play these songs routinely. Shudder.

Tell me about it. You get used to it, though. I'm leaving the house to go spin for the dance crowd right now. Then I get to do it about six times over the next week. Yay!

The acoustic tune, could it be Tonic's "If You Could Only See?" I think you mentioned it early in your posts, but I know there's an acoustic version out there, too.

"If you could only see the way she loves me, maybe you would understand
Why I feel this way about our love, and what I must do
If you could only see how blue her eyes can be when she says
When she says she loves me"

Alternately, there's an acoustic version of a new song by a group called SafetySuit called "Someone Like You" that I actually like, and is infinitely better than its heavier original.

"If I could be with someone like you
Would you, would you be strong enough for me
And if I could stay with someone like you
Would you, would you be strong enough "

Dunno. Just throwing it out there.

Either way, kudos on your torture!

Yep - Tonic. I don't know how I didn't recognize it, even though I posted I heard it. I wasn't expecting a song from the mid 90s.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HBgNfOOOvK4

The playlist order didn't match the actual order. It was listed about an hour earlier. I wonder what song I actually heard at that time.

And I actually kind of liked it. But I only heard it once. Nashville hasn't been anywhere near this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EpU78IeTx_c

On a second hearing, I don't think it will become a part of my dance mix collection.

Sorry I missed your suffering today.  I had been contemplating doing the Pink song as my torture since I've  heard it way too much and it drives me crazy.  Metro Station doesn't bother me.  I'm surprised you didn't get to hear the John Mayer cover of Tom Petty's Free Fallin'

So not so bad at this point, but that's because it's all new.
Beyonce - If I Were a Boy (from her upcomig release)
Flyleaf - All around Me (who?)
Ne-Yo - Closer (no clue)
Miley Cyrus - 7 Things (they play her on the radio?)
Rehab - Bartender Song (another I don't know)
Nickleback - Gotta Be Somebody (got to have a little "rock")
Pink - So What (I kind of like this one)
Old School Track: Biz Markie - Just a Friend

now we're back to ads. 4 so far

HATE HATE HATE that Bartender song. It literally gets played about once per 2 hours on this butt-rock station I'm forced to listen to via co-workers sometimes. It might not be bad for you once, but try 70 quijilpion times....in a day
