How come they don't have a song for each year?? 2009 and 2010 each have three apiece, why the hell is that?? And Seacrest and Clark? You've got to be kidding! Clark must be the epitome of Dorian Grey. That face job back in the 60's/70's is still holding up. And Seacrest, from the polluted gene pool of Kardashians, Hiltons and other no talent hacks that are buzzing around the TV airwaves like vultures, well I have to take a cue from the 80's valley girls - "Gag me with a spoon!"

This is TV at its most pitiful, degrading boring, trendy worst!!!
