Nice curve on the stats. Contrast it with that for the song before, or after.

As pithy as it gets: this one is highly rated because people like it–or that is the inference I draw from the high correlation between rating this song highly and the strength of the drive of the same people to focus their attention on the song when it is being played (or even when they are consciously seeking out that song, from any of a number of available sources, in order to listen to it, for any number of reasons, none of them negative).

How strange. . . is this more a self conditioning aspect of disregarding what your parents listened to rather than appreciating the music for what it is? 

Are you saying that if your parents listened to a piece of music that you can't appreciated it because they did? 

Oh dear. . .

This is currently the only track credited to a woman that appears on the Radio Paradise Classic Top 60 (excluding tracks that feature female vocalists, such as Clare Torry in Pink Floyd's "Great Gig in the Sky").

Feel free to explain yourselves.
