You hear about these kinda things but until you actually see it,a man shed 20 years just by getting onstage, it is hard to believe it actually happens and yet there it is! The great, one of the greatest, soul man, found the fountain of youth just by performing his songs to an audience at City Winery and perform them he did, in 90 minutes of take no prisoners soul he smashed through every barrier and came out triumphant. It’s a Christmas miracle.

Lester’s vision of cultural atomization became a reality in the 1990s, as audiences segmented into different genres/sub-genres and fewer artists impacted mass culture as a whole. Therefore, everyone’s ‘90s list will be radically different

The Hot 100 seems mostly centered on electro pop and its variants but he album charts have no center at all. Two guys hitting 70, English folk, Christian rock, two up and coming rappers, a country fella, an R&B guy and the Queen of Pop. Wild, eh?

No Beiber? No Gaga?They have Adele but I think if you don’t include Adele in your top something or other of 2011 you get shot or something or maybe she will stalk you from a tree outside yourhouse.

I don’t mind being manipulated by music, but I don’t enjoy being taken for a fool. Westlife and rebecca Ferguson are just the absolute worse: moribund pathos for people who have o be dragged through their emotional landscape by a nose righ. God, I pray they never crossover here.

The top three (and # 11 -“Smeels Like Teen Spirit”) were the battle for # 1, with #1 trouncing all comers by a margin of :1. It is the sort of fun thing you can’t, or at least couldn’t, you probably good today, do in the US. It is fun with the charts you can only pull off in a small country

This hasn’t moved much in ages. All winter long: Rohanna, LMFAO, Adele, Maroon 5. The only adds have been T-Pain and the Throne. It is the opposite of the album charts this year, where there is almost constant movement at the top

Yup, still Christmas for Buble, but the surprise is Coldplay, riding hit single “Paradise” for an increase of, dig it, 113% in sales. Otherwise, the usual UK mish mash of local greatest hits and Yanke pop plus Ed Sheeran of course.

On the same day it was released (along with Justin Bieber’s Under The Mistletoe, which it trounced) (and on Spotify, so so much for the Black Keys theories), his sales soared and soared and at the moment it has sold a mindblowing 1.54M copies

In the month Lily Allen gave birth to a baby daughter, I wonder how she feels taking a look at the charts and seeing her back up there. How wonderful for Stummer’s God Daighter. It’s a good song as well. T-Pain does her proud.

Buble and Bieber have been battling it out all season long, with Buble always on top and Bieber always hanging in. Indeed, Buble is the better of the two albums though neither are all that.

Olly Mars is a good looking lad, like the man said, a bright spark might corner the marker on this years boy. Olly hasn’t crossed the big pond yet but I don’t see why is brand of boy pop wouldn’t be quite big here.

Well now, except for Rihanna, Drake and maybe Mary J., this pretty much sucks.I gues Buble’s is about the best Seasonal albym but some of these acts are so bad… Nickelback are the second worst band on earth. the worst are at #10.

Rihanna does the double dip, # 1 single and # 1 album. Me, I prefer “You Da One” until I happen upon “We Found Love” again; and this song should put Calvin Harris on the map and then some.

Absolutely Drakes newbie deserves the top spot, though it sags in the middle the first six songs are astounding. It is just a shame there wasn’t only 10 tracks to the album. Nobody has recovered from the CD days

Rihanna is a strange woman, so young and bruised, so sure and defensive, there is something messy about her and there is something messy about this song. I’m a little surprised it is as popular as it is, it is a downbeat Drake like ballad that changes direction and becomes a dance anthem

From Scott Weiland to Justin Bieber I haven’t thought much of any of them. Buble’s the best of a bad lot because Buble is made of the same cloth as any of the greats, of a Sinatra or a Bennet. Meaning, he is used to covering well known songs.

Rihanna’s song, better than anything else on her album, is both dance and soul at the same time. That’s why it builds up so simply and when Harris lashes her to the synth, it is like a gorgeous flogging of desire.

the battle for pop single of the year is a three way race, “1+1”, “TGIF” and “I Found Love”. 1+1″ is the best but it didn’t sell enough, and in the world of pop records you kinda gotta, so that leaves “TGIF” versus “We Found Love”.

don’t see why they had to give Susan a makeover, she is who she is, why not leave her alone. If Susan is the picture of what we consider physical perfection , so what? Have you ever heard Scarlett Johansen sing?
