    no clue, and kinda happily ignorant

    my theory is that music went from calming people, to riling them up, to dancing

    i left at the "dancing" stage :dontcare:

    Its a hell of a lot easier to buy a record with your cell phone than it was to drag your ass to a record store in the olden days.....great excuse for a world with shitty taste in whatevers left of the music business

    You know back in the day my grandfather used to tell me he was pissed off because the Beatles had more #1 hits than The Benny Goodman Orchestra.

    These kind of lists mean jack shit.

    This list is so misleading. There are numerous reasons why these things happened.
