The year is 2004. Despite my father (age 44) primarily listening to a combination of Steve Winwood, Level 42, Steely Dan, and Steppenwolf pretty much exclusively, he keeps talking about Gwen Stefani. He plays Hollaback Girl on the stereo. He buys Love Angel Music Baby on the Rhapsody music store.

Anyway whatever this phenomenon is, I am going through it with myself and Dua Lipa

If you have a boomer parent that mostly/only listened to classic rock, do you remember a modern pop song or artist that the parent suddenly and inexplicably got into? I feel that this must be a widespread experience
