I came across a Yahoo! article titled “Biggest Selling Singles in the United States.” I’m a music fan, so I checked out the list. What do you think about these titles:

1. A Little Less Conversation – Elvis Presley

2. Here Without You – 3 Doors Down

3. Another One Bites The Dust – Queen

4. Apologize – Timbaland

5. (Everything I Do) I Do It For You – Bryan Adams

6. Hey Jude – The Beatles*

7. Hound Dog/Don’t Be Cruel – Elvis Presley

8. I Will Always Love You – Whitney Houston

9. Let’s Get It On – Marvin Gaye

10. Low – Flo Rida

11. Macarena – Los del Rio

12. Ridin’ –  Chamillionaire

13. We Are The World – USA For Africa**

14. Whoomp There It Is – Tag Team (Source)

Flo Rida and Three Doors Down? Really? No. Well, I got to wondering what sorts of “best sellers” would go on my list. This will not be based on statistics or research.

My number one pick is “My Boo” by Ghost Town DJs, and if you disagree with me on this, you’re a liar. With lyrics like “if your game is on/give me a call boo/if your lovings strong gotta give my all to you,” how can you go wrong? “Shawty Swing My Way” is a definite runner-up. As a matter of fact, I need to add that to my workout playlist.

Take a break from reading sometimes, ya’ll.
