To better serve our readers and provide a more detailed prospectus to our advertisers, it's time for the Leper Pop census. This week we will be examining the age of our readership. Instead of directly asking how old you are, since people seem to have a hang up about that kind of stuff, we'll try to make it both fun and anonymous for you.
So pretend you're on American Idol. Go ahead. Feel it. It sucks selling out doesn't it? But think how good it will feel when you get a recording contract while all those people that made fun of you for being in every musical in high school are getting up at 6 a.m. to go to some crappy job. Are you feeling it yet? (Also a question I've had to ask more girls than I care to admit.) Okay, so you're on stage wearing your "Simon Can Suck It" t-shirt and you have to sing a song that was in the top ten the week you were born.
You go to the following website where some guy kindly compiled all the charts since the 50's for us. Thanks, Randy. Click on your decade, your year, then your week and let us know in the comments which song you picked. Feel free to remain anonymous, but please play along. In fact, you have to under penalty of law. If you're older than 58 just put down something by Perry Como.
