    He had a few good tracks. "Freedom" rocked. "Careless Whisper" was pretty good. "Father Figure" is a beautiful song in a very, very creepy way.

    Maybe to you and my little sisters it was great. To me it was overproduced pop fluff.

    And technically, it wasn't mostly her music. Her name is just stamped on the collective effort.

    Geoff, I don't think you're causing Madonna's suckitude, but if you don't get out fast, hers might rub off on you.

    Or to the consensus of professional music critics, and to tens of millions of discerning pop music fans.

    Just don't speak to her. She mimics English accents and then tries to pass them off as her own, and it's maddening.

    Even Britney Spears won a Grammy. She has millions of fans also. Yet she's still a shitty artist.

    What musical talent does she have?

    Britney Spears has had three or four good singles in her career ("Toxic," for instance, is about 8,000,000 times better than those videos you posted), but has mostly been bad. I didn't mentioned Grammys before, because they are a TERRIBLE way to measure quality and even critical acclaim. Those people are awful about judging music.

    I guess we just have very different standards for judging music. There's nothing special, different, creative, complex, unique about most pop music. It's made by big corporations to make money off of 12 year old girls with a big allowance.

    Walk into any jazz music club, and you will find more musical talent there than in Toxic and Like A Virgin. The videos I posted take actual musical talent to play, something these pop artists don't have.

    You can think that, but you have to agree it takes a lot of talent to play, more so than most genres.
