I know some of the songs and know some of the artists. The list is populated by mainstream pop r&b and hip-hop, none of the styles I usually listen to.

I might go and investigate some of the numbers listed here for the educational purposes. If you are curious though, my sentiment is very close to Jason's.

My birthday was not the best time for Music :)
