Hit Music Word Cloud

Here's another experiment with Wordle. I took the lyrics from the Billboard Hot 100 top song for each year 1995-2005. Ten years of data should tell us what words people look for in a top song. One of the shortcomings is that certain songs will repeat a word ad nauseum that doesn't appear in any other song (I'm looking at you, Macarena.) So enjoy it for what it is worth.

Soon-to-be-hit: Baby, cause you know, oh, living Macarena love strong.
