Chenelle's "I Love You" and Kimura Kaela's "Butterfly" were 2 of the most played out songs in the past few years and unfortunately still haunt my dreams.

Will good music ever be popular again or are we doomed to have this insipid bubble gum sung by people that look like mannequins occupying the place of more deserving serious musicians? There was a time when music like Jimi Hendrix, The Stones, Led Zeppelin, David Bowie and much more was occupying the charts. What happened?
