Not Down With The Kids

I said Night of the Hats was going to gush, and then...

Well real life came along. But I have three or maybe four minutes so will quickly note how far out of the loop I am with popular culture:

It seems that every time I turn on the radio to BBC 6 Music, within 10 minutes Mercy by Duffy came on.

Well, hell, it's a good song and well within the 6 Music brief. But why such heavy rotation?

Oh. It's at Number 1. (Apparently the last time 6 Music was playing something at number 1 it was last August). How did a song I like reach the top of the charts without me knowing? Have I lost all sense of pop-youth culture?

Well, I guess the answer is yes. Better just listen to music from my past.
