At #8, the most recent hit among the top 10 hits of my lifetime comes from rapper Flo Rida: "Low." It's the biggest hit of the past five years, with Black Eyed Peas' "I Gotta Feeling" running a close second. (That one landed at #12 on the top 1000.)
Up next: the oldest song in the top 10 is pre-MTV, pre-new wave, contemporary with disco, but definitely not disco. It was the biggest pop hit of the 1970s, but it was also a huge contemporary Christian hit. What is it?
