How many #1 Country or Easy listening albums does Madonna have?

Elvis just didn't hit on the pop album charts, you know.

Besides, artists today are getting to #1 with 100,000 units.

Back in the 50's though the 80's, a #1 meant millions were sold.

People actually went to the stores to purchace the record.

It wasn't downloaded as soon as the music became available.

It's just recording industry publicity for Madonna. Means zip.

It's very misleading but they obviously put it there anyway.

Madonna is an old pop bimbo that is way past her prime.

Your logic is seriously flawed. Also, as usual, your bias is showing.

I've just read that Madonna's "MDNA" sales have plummeted...

In it's second week, it has the biggest drop for a #1 in history.

Publicity can be very misleading, obviously.

It seems my logic was right on the money, dolbyscat.

A lot of big names are releasing new CD's...

They seem to drop off the charts very quickly today, don't they?

Where is Bruce Springsteen's new CD, "Wrecking Ball" ???

Only a few newer artists are holding in there.

Even 10 years ago, people were selling a lot more.

"Elvis 30 #1 Hits" debuted #1 in 26 countries, stayed on top 3 wks.

The recording industry has downsized greatly in recent years.

It's tough to hold on to loyality to any artist today.

People simply are not buying new CD's when they can download songs.

Octopus brain, it would seem that you put yourself up here as the resident expert on all things music related, so before I comment further could you tell me what your credentials are within the music industry or are these simply your opinions? Seriously I am not being facetious.

It's no secret that the music industry is hurting badly, right?

Not many new releases are selling millions and millions of copies.

Record stores are being forced to close their doors because of it.

Years ago, many artists could stay at the #1 spot.

There were as many as 30 platinum releases each year, down greatly.

The biggest seller is the british singer, Adele with 8.4 million.

One artist. She is is the hottest artist in the world right now.

She grossed $32 million last year and yet, Elvis grosses more!!!

He still beats most living artists year after year after year...

His fans are still flocking to Graceland, buying tickets quietly.

Bruce Springsteen's "Wrecking Ball" is now at #19 on billboard.

Only 5 weeks after it debuted at #1.

The same as what Madonna did with her new CD.

It's sliding off the charts already and in record time.

So in reality, Elvis is still one of the biggest stars on earth.

Especially, when I've read that he bought in a record $110 million.

It doubled from the previous year probably because ticket prices.

The increase at Graceland due to the cost of doing business today.

It's not bad for a guy that's been dead for 35 years, is it?

Some just want to cut down Elvis's achievements because he's dead.

You seem to want to.

You can not compare this, madonna has a longer carriere and the population and world market has increased since elvis was on this earth! She may have beaten the record but she did it in a slutty way...records are made to be broken but keep a clear head and understand how it happened...lets be serious if you attended a live concert you have to admit that she sings off key...nevermind for me elvis is a much better singer-performer and gentlemen and still dearly missed today!! Dont forget he sold out wembley arena and most of the other european stadiums a month ago 35 years after his passing!!!! who can do better?

and be serious how many of the comments written ever knew or listen or even watched elvis? The only elvis they know is the performer from 1977 and, although his voice was great, they should take time to listen to the man and understand how he became this big star! You can laugh with the man but you can't laugh with his achievements!

Am I a fan? Tho' the question is a simple one, the answer is not... Define fan for me. I like some of his music, and in fact own all his officially released records up until his death, but I don't own any of his "collectables", like plates, or coffee mugs. I also don't think he is the greatest thing that ever hit the stage, tho' I concede he probably was at one time. Actually I don't regard myself as a fan, tho' some would say my liking his music is enough to make me one. I don't care one way or another, I'm also a little old to be swooning over a dead pop singer, I'll leave that to the thirteen year olds, and the rest of you guys here. I have always found the idolization of entertainers a little weird, it's always about the music for me. Elvis is like the Titanic...and it's sunk...get over it. Still I would be interested in knowing your definition of what makes a person an Evis fan.

@Dolbyscat. Fair enough.We all like or dislike who we want to.Honestly,I am a hardcore loyal Elvis fan.I wouldn't never stop likeing or listening to him because some people might think he's outdated or been gone too long.I do like and listen to other artist,but consider Elvis to be the greatest artist ever.

Well for a singer that never performed outside the US you have to say it was a solid record that lasted many many years!
Population was less - the global market was different and above all you needed to sell 1 million before reaching nr1, now 100.000 will grant you that privilege! Madonna's voice on tour is questionable and poor of quality and yes i saw her perform...Elvis well that is a different story and don't forget history will carry elvis through the ages and madonna will be faded out like most simple artist now a days. Sex and provocation is not enough to last!

I don't idolize Elvis like you seem to believe I do.

He's just my favorite artist and he has always been.

I've listened to all kinds of music from all eras, mostly rock.

I don't swoon over dead pop singers. Elvis is just special...

There is no one remotely like him as a personality and entertainer.

It really doesn't matter what another person might say about him.

He worked hard to please his fans and most of the music holds up.

All Elvis fans are different, right?

I mostly collect his music and older Elvis memorabilia.

I don't collect collector plates and teddy bears...

I don't desire to look like Elvis or force him on to other people.

It is what it is.

The music industry today is really quite bad.

A lot it isn't even recorded in recording studios anymore.

Elvis was never apart of that so he can't be compared to that crap.

You seem to be angry that Elvis died which is pointless.

Dying at 42 years old was tragic but Elvis is still the king to me.

He's given me years and years of listening pleasure even in death.

So, you can have your opinions. Whatever.

Madonna appeared in low grade porn before she became famous.

She was known to push the envelope a bit in her prime.

She was photographed naked with hairy armpits.

All Elvis did was dance on stage or on television in the 1950's.

Madonna should change her style and act her age.

She's trying stay current by copying her clones.

Elvis never felt the need to do that.

I think that's why Elvis kept changing so much.

His 70's stuff was really heartfelt and passionate.

He was always trying for something different.

Elvis had all his smash hits.

He wanted to go deep and do sad ballads in the end.

It made him misunderstood by many but it was great.

In many ways, it set him apart from anyone else.

First off don't take it so personally, NONE of what I wrote was aimed at you...you are NOT that important. Why would you be of the opinion I am angry because Elvis died? I don't even remember where I was when he snuffed it, and don't really care, to me he is just one more dead person, no different than you or me in that regard. The music industry is probably as good as it has ever been, the choices and genres are countless, as I have said before, you should quit griping and listen more, and stop comparing every act to Elvis. Elvis was what he was, and he was good at what he did, the same can be said for many other acts, both old and new. There are problems with the "recording" industry, and I don't know of one person amongst the many i know who listen to music seriously who disagree, the great recording engineers saw what they did as an art form, and there are very few taking over their traditions. Having said that, lots of artists are still turning out some very well crafted material, but that matters little to you. In fact it matters little to the majority of the buying public, who's i-Pod's and $200 stereos could not discern well recorded music anyway. If you think I am being elitist about that then you would be correct. I have taken note of the music you tend to like, and I would say that you are missing out big time if you think that they turned out some of the better stuff during their careers.

Madonna's music is shallow, it doesn't hold up very well except with middle aged women who are in dire need of a man.
What is up with all these middle aged women on Topix, is there not bath tubs to clean and groceries to buy, get to it women.
