It always cracks me up when people think being a “fan” is a compliment!

Do you know what "fan" is short for, kids?

It’s short for “FANATIC!”

What is a fanatic?

1. a person with an extreme and uncritical enthusiasm or zeal, as in religion or politics.(OR ENTERTAINMENT!)

2. a person whose enthusiasm or zeal for something is extreme or beyond normal limits

WHEEEEEE!!!

Looney-toons like octo have every single one of Elvis’ albums and (he's proud to say...) even some of his bootleg albums.

Probably 95% of the rest of the world is content with Elvis'“Greatest Hits!!!”

pffft!

Hahahahaha!!!
SAY WHAT??
I never claimed Elvis had to be flawless every single time. After all, it was a live concert experience that involved an audience. Say a female fan jumped up on stage and grabbed Elvis to kiss him while he was singing? And he missed a couple words in the song. So what? However, The Beatles live concerts were 30 minutes long and out of tune guitars, feedback, fumbled words and more...

I stated that Elvis never actually forgot words, which he didn't.

Elvis was professional but one has to take in account that it was his stage. He could do whatever he wanted. At least, he was in tune most of the time and gave his fans a show.

I have more bootleg releases than the regular albums. It is because I desire to hear more. However, my range doesn't stop at Elvis. I have other artists as well. I suppose you would be happy with "Greatest Hits" collections. I'm not a radio person. I like hearing the good stuff they never play. Yet, "The John Lennon Collection" is perfect for him because it avoids his screaming Japanese wife.

I could care less about album sales. That was never a reason to buy music.

Your point?

I agree 100%.

Hey 3H, what do you think of how the youth embrace certain words and change the meanings of them?

Like “Diva.”

It used to refer to a distinguished female singer.

Now it means “Ghetto Fabulous!”

Or…(Because this is a thread about MJ….) how about….

“THE KING OF POP?”

The word “Pop” is short for “Popular.”

Michael Jackson called himself the “King of Pop”

This means kids adopted a name made “popular” by the King of what’s “popular” to be “popular” with the “popular” kids!!

Hey Mo, did you ever answer my question?
You’d probably be one of those fanatics in the audience cheering madly over a song Elvis was just making strange grunting noises to, wouldn’t you?
We owe it him, people!!
THE KING has graced us with his royal presence!!!
You are always going to get audience noise at a live concert event. So, your question doesn't make any sense.

How about John, Paul and George singing different parts of the songs with ear splitting feedback, fumbled lyrics, out of place solos in only a 30 minute time frame with tiny amps? And they can easily be heard on You Tube. Fun? They never improved. "Candlestick Park" in 1966. A disaster.

Or how the abbreviation “Pop” became a genre of music, ie:“Pop Music…”


pop music

noun

music of general appeal to teenagers; a bland watered-down version of rock'n'roll with more rhythm and harmony and an emphasis on romantic love

WELL, NOW!!!

That certainly is a good reason to hate "haters," ain’t it??

When John Lennon released his solo album at the end of the 60s, he rebelled against “Pop Music,” the music Paul McCartney had a flare for.

(And let’s face it, so did Elvis Presley and Michael Jackson.)

John wanted to play raw, basic rock-n-roll and he didn’t wanna sing about “puppy love” either.

He wanted to scream about women’s liberation, the war, his childhood and “Working Class Heroes!!”

Elvis just wanted to be your “Teddy Bear!”

Let us see what Rolling Stone Record Guide has given John Lennon's worst albums in their ratings, shall we?

(worthless to five stars)

"Unfinished Music: Two Virgins (1968) worthless
"Unfinished Music No. 2: Life With The Lions (1969) worthless
"Live Peace In Toronto" (1969) not rated (album deleted)
"Wedding Album" (1969) worthless
"Imagine" (1972) three stars
"Sometime In New York City" (1972) one star
"Mind Games" (1973) two stars
"Walls And Bridges" (1974) two stars
"Rock N Roll" (1975) two stars
"Shaved Fish" (1975) three stars

No wonder the defeated John Lennon retired for 5 years to become a house husband and Mr Mom...
