How Music Changed

    As a phenomenon created almost exclusively by teenagers, it should come as no surprise that the song topics of most “Nuggets” tunes are usually, self-absorbed, egocentric, and maybe even narcissistic.

    To that end, every song in this show begins with the letter ‘i’ – not just the letter but the actual word ‘I’. These are songs intended to help us relate to the singer’s perspective, so what do we have?

    Here’s our list:

    I Live in the Springtime – The Lemon Drops

    I Love How You Love Me – Nino Tempo and April Stevens
