Sometimes the Pop Gods are On Our Side

A couple of months ago I predicted that Maroon 5′s ghastly “Payphone” would keep “Call Me Maybe” from making number one. I was wrong, of course. The exact opposite happened. “Call Me Maybe” has now been number one for eight weeks, while “Payphone”, which has been number two almost all that time, has begun to drop, if only slightly. I’ve never been more pleased by a mistake.
