I was looking at the billboard charts for 2003, and I realized I didn’t recognize anyone. That comes with not listening to the radio or having MTV. Disgusted, I decided to look up songs for when I was born. Then I looked up songs when I was in the midst of my grade school career. Then when I started the high school gauntlet. Then college.
I found myself thinking, half joking, half serious, “Music was just better when I was younger.”
