Novelty records are fine as #1's. Glee/Justin Beiber/Jonas Brothers/Bad Music of Today are not worthy #1's.


Thanks for clearing that up for me - I can now see the grass!

My point, however was in agreeing with Von that number 1's do not translate into greatness. Regardless of the genre, a number 1 is a number 1.

Whether it is worthy or not, I will leave for others to debate. I can't sit here and tell you I've liked every number 1 song ever recorded. It just seems to me that if enough people bought the record causing it to acheive a number 1 ranking, how do you take away the "worth"?

Because all the people who bought the bad #1's of today don't have taste.

Something else - Number Ones can be misleading, saleswise too. "Strawberry Fields Forever"/"Penny Lane" sold way more over the years than "Release Me".

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"

But you need to remember that "Strawberry Fields Forever"/"Penny Lane" were two A-sides, meaning they needed to double Release me in sales.

That's interesting, what makes a number one these days. I never hear these people's music, I just know the names, Bieber (it's his b-day if you didn't know 🙂 , Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, blah blah blah the rest. It's pretty easy to ignore music these days, but I suppose when I was younger it wasn't quite as easy. We had Hanson, those boys from the backstreet, Nsync and all the rest of the pop scene. Now that was some incredible music.
