MAN, I CAN'T FIND NOTHING ON THE RADIO: Rolling Stone has its own solid decade in review issue out now, but something of interest is they provide the list of the top 10 songs with the most "spins" on radio during the decade--I'm assuming it's not just pop/Top 40 formats, based on some of the selections, but I still shiver a bit. Here's the list:
  1. "How You Remind Me"--Nickelback
  2. "Drops of Jupiter"--Train
  3. "Hanging By A Moment"--Lifehouse
  4. "Breathe"--Faith Hill
  5. "Kryptonite"--Three Doors Down
  6. "The Way You Love Me"--Faith Hill
  7. "I Hope You Dance"--Lee Ann Womack
  8. "Wherever You Will Go"--The Calling
  9. "Smooth"--Santana f/ Rob Thomas
  10. "The Reason"--Hoobastank
Interestingly as well, for all the noise of singles driving album sales in the pre-iTunes era of the early 00s, none of the top 13 selling albums of the decade (a list topped by The Beatles, 1, followed by NSYNC, Norah Jones, and two Eminem albums) contain any of those singles, though Nickelback's All The Right Reasons and Santana's Supernatural are at 14 and 15.
