Rhapsody Top Tracks 2002: Eminem Rages, Norah Jones Soothes
by Rob Harvilla | December 8, 2011
Rhapsody turns 10 years old this month, and in celebration we've crunched the numbers and determined our 15 most popular songs for every year we've been alive. Here are our findings.
We launched in December 2001 and spent the next 13 months getting yelled at by one unlikely pop phenom and comforted by another. No surprise of course that Marshall Mathers dominated us back then -- The Eminem Show and 8 Mile dominated pretty much everything, his aspirational rage nicely echoed by Linkin Park and nicely undercut by sweet Norah Jones, a jazzy soft-rock savior to believe in. Hardly room for anyone else, but Coldplay sneaks one in, and wow does Kylie's "Can't Get You Out of My Head" hold up well, a blithe "la la la" delight for a very aggro time.
Sadly, Eminem was never heard from again.
