With the exception of Norah Jones, that's a pretty sad list in my opinion.

I kind of like the list. It shows diversity compared to the days when it was all hip hop & rap music.

I agree. I love that people still cite disco as the lowest point in music history... there was more diversity then than it was in 2003-2004 where if you weren't into rap, you may as well shouldn't even turn the radio on. I knew older people who lived through and hated disco who said that didn't compare to 2003-2004. Pop stations wouldn't even play pop music.
