Bigger than the King and chasing down the Beatles!
According to Billboards Top 100, Mariah Carey has surpassed Elvis in hits and the Beatles are now in sight.
"With her 18th chart-topper 'Touch My Body,' Mariah Carey has passed Elvis Presley for the most No. 1 singles on the Billboard Hot 100, and is now second only to the Beatles." (See story here.)
Somehow that just doesn't seem right . . . until you stop to consider just who it is that's buying her music, or should I say, which generation.
Are you sick of me telling you this? They are America's largest generation and their influence is starting to be felt nation-wide. (They are around 100 million strong and they spend cash like drunken sailors!)
Now here's the question: Does anyone out there think that Ms. Carey's music is better than Elvis' or the Fab 4's?
I guess the answer depends on your generational perspective... but the answer is no. Everyone knows that the best bands ever were the B-52's and Devo.
