I came across this article last night and found it interesting. Also was kind of dumbfounded – this song has been at #1 for 7 weeks on the TOP 100 and although the article says its an ‘inescapable tune” it somehow has escaped me. Had I heard it and hadn’t realized it? Well I just looked it up and listened to it, I haven’t heard this before. I really don’t care if I hear it again either. I have heard some of his songs from the past few years and I can’t say I understand his success.So it goes. The fact that this song has been at the top of the chart for nearly 2 months and I hadn’t heard it tells you all you need to know about me and Top 40 radio.
Below is the article on “Shape of You” and its dominance.
