I completely agree with you. I was so glad that the Beatles topped Michael Jackson. I would have liked to see about 10 others do the same, but whatever. It seems that having the media over-exploit your death can get you far, but it can’t get you past the Beatles. He was a good artist, had a few hits, had one of the best selling albums of all time. Yea. So did ABBA, but no one gives them the same appreciation. I can’t believe people are saying to put him at number one. I feel like having the same gagging fit I had when his death was said to be the most shocking thing in music history. That’s right. Not John Lennon being shot, not The Day the Music Died. MJ’s overdose.
And the people defending him are the same idiots that wouldn’t even listen to him before he died because they didn’t want to listen to a pedaphile. Seriously. Can anyone think for themselves around here?
I agree with Madonna as well. I was also pretty upset about Billy Joel being number 51. Billy Joel being behind Sade? Wtf?
