30yrs after death, John Lennon still a hit among young fans

Friday, February 11, 2011

MELBOURNE - A new survey has revealed that John Lennon is one of the top online entertainment names searched by kids on the Internet.

According to Norton Online Family, the most-searched-for performer is current teen pop sensation Justin Bieber.

However, the most surprising result was the position of legendary Beatles frontman John Lennon, who passed away long before most kids with access to a computer were born, reports the Herald Sun.

More than 30 years since the release of his last song, Lennon was the second most searched-for artist among young fans born decades after his death in 1980.

Bizarre songstress Lady Gaga brought in the trifecta at number three.

The research, based on more than 23.3 million searches from a sample of users in 20 countries, including Australia, found that more than three-quarters of entertainment searches made by kids online were for songs or musicians.

While pop songs comprised 13 out of the top 25 searches, the most- searched-for tune by kids worldwide was R and B hit Dynamite by Taio Cruz.

‘Waka Waka’ by Shakira and Katy Perry’s ‘Teenage Dream’ rounded out the top three songs that kept youngsters dancing around the world. (ANI)
