Submitted for fans of Auto Tune, so-so songs, and low-end artists, a year end assessment of Pop music. "Todd in the Shadows" has an archeological dig's worth of bones to pick over for this about-to-end year. The "Honorable Mention" list is almost as long as the Top Ten main list. Not having heard any of these songs before, I'm neutral/disinterested in this list. What say you, youngsters? (If any, that is.;)
Get your Wayback Machine motor running, "Todd in the Shadows" looks at Mungo Jerry's 1970 hit, "In The Summertime." Why did this "jugband-simple" song make the #1 lists across the world? Who is "Mungo Jerry" and did he (or his band) ever record anything else? "Todd" says something about a "motorcycle" at the end of the song, but I thought that was a "jalopy with a badly tuned/misfiring engine, limping off into the sunset."
