I read today where Mariah Carey passed elvis for top singles & is now only behind the beatles.
Heres my question:
Everything I've read says Bing Crosby has more top singles than everybody.
So why dont i see his name anywhere?
Comparing sales of Mariah Carey to Bing Crosby is like comparing home runs between Babe Ruth and Barry Bonds. Two different artists in two different eras just don't compare. The Babe had booze and about 40 extra pounds contending against him while Barry had needles and modern conditioning to help him out (as well as 162 game seasons). Bing sold records in two sizes -- LPs and 45s. Mariah sells CDs, downloads, videos, etc.
So you just can't compare.
Plus, you have to look at markets over time. Bing sold to US and Internation markets that were much, much smaller. Mariah is a pariah in many cultures that Bing never could be thanks to modern communications and the natural growth in populations.
Bing had the radio, a sizeable military follow and, I suppose, plenty of support from the PGA to promote him.
Mariah has television, radio, internet, movies, commercials, magazines, MTV, and who knows how many features on the cover of "Plastic Surgery Monthly" to market her.
So, in essence, anyone who touts Mariah Carey as "comparable" in any way to Bing, the Beatles, Elvis or, even, William Hung is, well, smoking too many of her CDs.
Because the dundering chowderhead WRITER/REPORTER and his accomplice in media SLIME (also known as an editor) didn't do their homework. You can't trust the media to get much of anything right. I'm sure they took the write-up straight from Mariah's publicist and ran with it.
but if bing has more number 1 singles than everyone, why isnt he listed
It's a little known fact. That's all. Most people, even those in the media, simply don't know.
Also I think the Elvis vs. Mariah is based on historical charts and not necessarily over all sales. You an get Elivis's music in the same places you can get Mariah's, but they don't always track. No one is really following the sales of 40 year old songs unless it happens to sell an enormous amount one week. But as Johnny Cash proved, if you were to put up a new Elvis CD against a new Mariah CD, Elvis will more than likely outsell her.
