POP Goes The World! presents:

 

Since I’m still a little hesitant about jumping into 2022, we’re going to take a look back at the music of 2002.

That’s 20 years ago, kids, officially putting these songs in the “retro” category.

WRIR wasn’t around in 2002, only getting on the air a few years later in 2005, but I’d like to think this is what a POP Goes The World show would have sounded like in 2002 had WRIR been around then.

We’ll see how many of these songs stood the test of time and held up.
