I keep a close watch on the weekly Billboard charts for my job, which is like studying the Brownian motion of neuroses in music listeners/consumers.

If we can interpret the emotional climate of this country by divining the top 40, I'd say that, as a nation, we're having some trouble with anger management and substance addictions:

Lookin' For A Good Time
Pop Champagne
One More Drink
I Don't Care
Sex On Fire
Shattered (Turn The Car Around)
Bust Your Windows
Mrs. Officer
I Hate This Part
Chicken Fried
