This morning one of the local radio stations was having a heated discussion. One of the DJs had found a recent online survey- Top Songs Played at College Parties. Yes, I understand very life or death. Anyway, I caught the survey, listened to DJs opinions, and then flipped the channel to my normal morning radio station. Even though I didn’t really care about the DJs opinions I did find the survey interesting. Here are the Top Songs Played at College Parties:
10. Van Morrison - Brown Eyed Girl
9. Garth Brooks - Friends In Low Places
8. Van Halen - Runnin’ With The Devil
7. Boston - More Than A Feeling
6. Anything by Jack Johnson or any other marginally talented acoustic guitar-based singer
5. Lynyrd Skynyrd - Sweet Home Alabama
4. Rick Springfield - Jessie’s Girl
3. Anything by or featuring Lil Wayne
2. Bon Jovi - Livin’ On A Prayer
ANNNNNDDDD the #1 song, my ringtone…….
Journey - Don’t Stop Believin’
Now don’t get me wrong I love most of these songs. No, scratch that- I like them all. Well, I’m not a huge fan of Friends in Love Places. Garth is a great singer, but growing up in OK you heard the song everyday, every hour for about three years straight- the song got old. But all around, I find this list to be a great list of songs. As a matter of fact, most of these songs are on my iPod. However, my question is why are college students still playing songs that were popular in the earlier 80s, like when I was the ripe age of one? I understand that Jack Johnson and Lil Wayne are newer, but the other eight songs are from the 80s. I also understand that these are great songs, classics if you will, but really? Are college students so lame that they cannot find new songs to play at their frat parties? I shake my head and pass this information off to you, Blogger World. Please help the younger generation. Now if you would excuse me...I feel like listening to some Boston.
