    "Baby"

    Every time I hear this word I think "couldn't you find one more original?" I know I'm being sensitive since it always struck me as a strange term of endearment for an adult. It's only recently that I realized how many years and genres of music it crosses.

    Basically like that Family Guy gag where Brian names off every song named after a woman.

    Shorty. Thankfully my music tastes mean I avoid it usually but every time I'm listening to my roommates' music or my sister's I hear it constantly.

    New study confirms that most hit songs are about the same things.

    While you may have thought you were right, now you have statistical proof.

    EDIT: By the way, by "quantity" I think they mean lyrics like "All of my love" "some of your love" "all night long" "all the girls" "all the boys" etc.
