I've always wondered this: Does a "favorite song of year XXXX" have to have been released in that year, or is it the year you were first exposed to it?
The music snob in me says "Dude, if you didn't hear it when it came out you are so loserrrrrr." The pragmatist in me replies "Shut up, poser."
So.....the question has been posed. What say you?
