New Songs: Lady Gaga, Green Day, etc.

Out of curiosity, I checked out what was on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart the week of Sept. 11, 2001. Music in the 2000s isn’t nearly as interesting as previous decades, but there were glimpses of palatable pop that fateful week.

In the Top 10 was a young Alicia Keys (“Fallin'”). The Top 40 included Craig David (“Fill Me In”), The Wiseguys (“Start the Commotion”) and Enya (“Only Time”). Elsewhere in the Top 100 were Aaliyah (“Rock the Boat”) and Gorillaz (“Clint Eastwood”). Otherwise, nothing particularly memorable.

No doubt, we all turned to music to get us through a very difficult time, whether it was a soul-searching oldie or a new song. Music is always there for us, in good times and bad.

Before we launch into this week’s list of New Songs, I just want to say a very happy 15th birthday to my beautiful daughter, Josie. Yes, she was born on 9/11 … three hours before the attacks. She’s our shining star, delivered on a dark day to help brighten up the world.
