There’s a song I’ve heard a lot on the radio recently that I wanted to download but I couldn’t think of the words nor who sings it. I began my search with Promo Only’s listings, a radio station’s playlist and some music charts from another local radio station and didn’t find it.
My next attempt was a google of “top radio hits” which led me to the ARC weekly top 40 (this week’s) and Billboard’s Hot 100 (no permanent links that I could find). I had already seen “Complicated” by Mercy Street and the search didn’t find anything so when I saw it in the other lists I thought it was the same one and moved on. When I saw that it was ranked #1 on ARC and #3 on Billboard, it seemed very unlikely that it wouldn’t have a single result, so I tried again using Avril and got zillions of results. A quick listen confirmed that my search was over.
The song is called Complicated, sung by Avril Lavigne. Since I don’t listen to the radio much anymore I may start visiting the ARC and Billboard pages regularly. I like knowing what songs are at the top of the charts.
