I don’t understand radio stations.
The Kelly Clarkson hit, “My Life Would Suck Without You,” came out in 2009 and only now, in 2015, is a local contemporary-pop station playing it. It is every bit as catchy as other pop singles released in ’09 and yet it was ignored. So was “I Don’t Hook Up,” another bit of meaningful ear candy contributing to a pretty decent career.
Perhaps a host of new but not-so-catchy singles is threatening the profits of this local station and so it is going back to what everyone knew would be a hit, even if not everyone cared.
