    Re: The Random Thought Thread

    Trump calling his fans ''the super elites'' is one of the most bewildering and dangerous things I have heard recently.

    Exactly by 1995-1997 they said Mariah Carey cannot sing and could never sing. A remark which was used by Kendrick Lamar in 2017.

    Hope you will find her again.
    It has happened to me too in the past.
    I kept on looking for months.
    Hope it will never happen again.

    Yeah I agree on "Vertigo" . . . . "Walk on" is also famous but definately lesser compared to "Beautiful day" and "Vertigo". "Elevation" is not a classic for the GP IMO. I honestly think "Beautiful Day" was their definitive song during this century and in fact one of their definitive career songs overall.

    As for the albums reviews I agree. IMO U2 haven't really delivered since "How to dismantle an atomic bomb" in 2004. Everything that they have released ever since has been subpar.

    They're not over U2. "Beautiful Day" ranked at #40 on the list (which is higher than anything by Madonna for example) and which also seems about right to me because besides "Beautiful Day" they didn't really have any other major staple hit song that weighted acclaim, classic cult, timeless quality, success and impact in one same song during

    It shouldn't be generalized in one song. Of course the list has a few patchy or questionable moments. But overall it was a really strong list with a lot of alternative, urban, underground and rock acts making the list. Only 31 out of 100 were female / divas entries, most of the list is composed by great songs with lots of diversity.

    Well my divas did fine. Beyonce is at #1 and with 3 entries on the list, she was pretty much the best performing female. Britney did pretty good with "Toxic" ranking at #14 in the overall list (one of the 10 best females) and Amy Winehouse also made the Top 20 with "Rehab".

    The only of my fave females that ranked quite low was Madonna but considering she had already slayed 80s and 90s and the 21st century meant her 3rd / 4th decades in the business it was more than amazing that she made the list.

    not really since WBT is easily Maria's best song and Hung Up is Madonna's third best song (after Like A Prayer & Frozen).
    CGYOOMH is Kylie's second best (after Confide In Me).

    I'm quite sure Netherlands and Nordic countries have even bigger tax. If it's like in Austria, once the taxes get taken away, you pay no insurance or school or whatever and what tou get payed is what you really get.
