I feel seen. Thank you for writing this, Stacey!
I don't even pretend to follow the latest pop stars and I listen to Audible books when I drive so I don't even hear "Top 40" music very often anymore. I also am not on Twitter, TikTok, or Instagram so I'm way behind the times. Thank goodness I can create my own playlists of songs I like when I do feel like music.
Don't mind me. I'll be in the back, listening to the old stuff and being nostalgic!
