‘Hey Soul Sister’ Tops iTunes Charts For 2010, SHODAN Among Top Three Albums

Apple has revealed its year-end iTunes charts, and it turns out that Train’s “Hey, Soul Sister” was the single most downloaded song of the year. My first reaction was, “That’s Train singing that song, what?!” Shows how little I’m plugged in to popular culture these days. Now, if you want my opinion on who should win the Ballon d’Or, on the other hand…

Following “Hey, Soul Sister” was Katy Perry’s “California Girls” and Eminem’s “Love The Way You Lie.”

This is why I listen to talk radio and/or podcasts all day long: pop music is largely rubbish.

In other Eminem news, his album Recovery was the top downloaded album of the year, followed by Ke$ha’s Animal and Lady Gaga’s The Fame.

Ke$ha, eh? It’s good to see that SHODAN has transitioned to a successful pop music career.

(I’m saying that Ke$ha sounds like SHODAN, if that’s not clear enough.)
