    She didn't beat them; she tied them (if I read that correctly...)

    Regardless, that's pretty impressive. Especially in today's world where making a living with music at all is a serious accomplishment.

    Don't know a single song or even what she sounds like. Or looks like.

    I'm not really a Beatles fan, either.

    Actually, that is a good example. How many times has that stupid song been remade? It's stupid, but it works.

    I listen to the college station on my way to work every morning just to hear what the kids are listening to. Half the time it is old punk music and a lot of remakes from 70's era rock songs. Nothing even remotely like Miss Grande.

    Which is why you can hear your favorite bands at a county fair.

    She would look better sporting a Telecaster and probably sound better too.

    ...I don't get it..

    I'm not defending the Beatles, I don't particularly like the 3 songs they set the record with, I just happened to be curious of what Ariana Grande sounded like and thought the music sounded terrible. Plain and simple

    You’re correct. I vacillated over the title, but arguably the head count nudged Grande over. Ignoring the producers in either act, Grande collects the biggest check while Lennon and McCartney duke it out.

    Profit Margin per unit always has that happy "I'm an artist" feel, don't it?

    Times like these are when I'm glad I can play well enough to fill my own musical needs.

    Wow, you really are out of touch. :D Kids don't listen to radio, and so radio doesn't play stuff for kids. Kids listen to Youtube, Spotify, AppleMusic, and so on.

    If you want to know the audience of your local radio stations, listen to their ads.

    I mean, she has talent and she’s an attractive lady.

    But I listen to entirely different music. Both my wife and I do, she’s 24, I’m 25. I said this in another post, but I share music I like and find with friends hoping for a musical revival of sorts. It’s not to belittle what she’s doing, but I just want instruments to be a part of pop music again. In other words. I want my instrument and taste in music to be popular again. (I think a lot of people feel this way when their genre of music isn’t popular so much anymore.)

    I wish Corb Lund outsold Arianna Grande... but I also wish the Turnpike Troubadours outsold Blake Shelton.
