Prelude to The Top 500 Songs of the Rock Era*: "I Gotta' Feeling" by the Black Eyed Peas

The songs in the last few years sell singles, but missing are the huge album sales tied to other great hits.  Plus, being recent, they don't have near the airplay as earlier smashes. 

This song hit #1 for 14 weeks in 2009.  A lack of strong competition and the album sales and airplay referred to above keep it out of The Top 500*.  For now.  A few album sales would probably provide the impetus to get it there.

"I Gotta' Feeling" was nominated for Record of the Year at the Grammy Awards, and it won the Grammy for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals.
