Billboard goes by sales I take it. Other charts go by most requested(from radio stations). Anyway, the truth is, there's a lot more music out there today than there was 20-30 yrs ago, but I'd say that there's a much greater percentage of chaffe that goes with it.

Ding! Correct for $1000. You have the board, and your remaining categories are "CV's Musical Crushes" and "Ken's Most Annoying Habits" ...

Oh yeah, the Jelly Belly Bertie Bott's Every Flavored Beans, from Harry Potter, had a Bogie (booger) flavor. That's a fun party game right there, Russian Roulette out of a Bertie Bott pack. Everybody gets one. Discuss.
