It's a strange world. As an example, I can't get away from "Lady Gaga", she is friggin' everywhere. But now I suddenly hear of Katie Melua. Apparently she's been at top of the sales charts in UK and Europe in the past decade, and I swear I never heard of her!
OK, sure, I don't listen to radio or watch pop music shows, but like I said, it has not prevented an over-abundance of Gaga to permeate.
