Beautiful information. (apologies to Mr. Tufte)

I ran across an article on Slate about Ben Huh, Internet boy genius who thought up I Can Has Cheezburger and other meme-related sites, including GraphJam, a site in which people graph unlikely topics (relationship of money and troubles, stuff your parents lecture you about, etc.). The article led me to this fantastic flickr set, Song Chart Meme. Here is "I Will Survive," as a timeline (click to see a larger version):

Make sure to look at the rest of the set: it's genius. Oh, fine, just one more:
