I liked it better when....

Over the last 20 yrs, the average number of singles a pop artist released over the course of a year has tripled. I can't even keep track of what the new Beyonce or Lil Wayne single is....

No wonder "it" songs and artists come and go so fast. I liked it better when I would hear a new song from an artist I loved, after waiting a year or two for it to come out. I appreciated it more. Just like anything in excess, artists can loose their unique flavor. In many ways I believe the epitome of today's pop culture is a combination of ADHD and over indulgence.
