SoulDecision, tragically ahead of their time

Questions inspired by recent #1 singles:

Would SoulDecision be as successful as Maroon 5 if they came out today?

What about the Afghan Whigs?

Why does Rihanna sound even more like Alanis Morrissette than Avril Lavigne does?

Why doesn't this similarity bother people? It bothers me.

Why hasn't R. Kelly sued Akon over the hook for "Don't Matter"?

Seriously, how can anybody listen to the chorus of "Don't Matter" and not hear "Ignition (Remix)"?

Will I ever remember anything about Timbaland's "Give It To Me"?

Does anyone actually like "Give It To Me"?

How come nobody's revisiting Zapp when so many R&B tracks today incorporate vocoder?

How long will it take T-Pain to acknowledge the debt with a cover?

There's something in the new issue of Scratch about R&B vocoding/autotuning that covers Akon, T-Pain AND Troutman.

I can remember parts of "Give It To Me," but I wish I couldn't.

I'll have to hunt that article down. I need to see this trend acknowledged and explained!
