Any theories?
Classic rock radio, and the other ways older music from these eras gets piped out into the mainstream. Kids will belt out what they're presented with. If you have an issue with what they're belting, look to who's feeding their ears.

"I Think I Love You". In the hands of a talented singer that could be the most frightening tune ever. Read those lyrics and think about how you felt asking somebody out.Funny, I've been listening to the Four Seasons 25th Anniversary set. Has anybody noticed how some of these not only have amazing arrangements and playing, but would be great to cover.

Portia-I gave a young boy about 8 a CD of the Last Poets, telling him this was part of the roots of rap. Two days later he told me it wasn't rap, as there was nothing about bitches or ho's. I was tempted to say that maybe the Last Poets didn't know his mom, but I contained myself:

You meant to mention me as @boombapdame and my sig quote comes from one of the few musicologists that inspires me. The boy you speak of has been misinformed by mass media regarding Hip Hop and he needs to know what it used to be but more so what it is now, start w/Rapsody, Phonte, Ruby Ibarra, Noname Gypsy, 3D Na'tee, Farrah Burns, Dutch Rebelle, Chris Rivers (Big Pun's son), etc.

DANG... Now you got "Sweet Caroline" etched into my head and I can't get rid of it!
