Re: Favourite band/artist to sell 300 million records or more?

Madonnna is the only woman on the list(Solo) and she is among the most controversial artist up on that list so I have to give her major props for selling as much as she did. She does everything by her own set of rules, was probably the first woman/artist to write, speak about AIDS among many other cultural taboos like racism, sexual orientation, abortion, etc. The fact that during a 30+ year career we have never once seen her have any breakdown, drug problem, etc. I have nothing but respect for that woman. She is amazing!

probably MJ. Madonna is up too. The Beatles songs are really hit or miss for me.

Mariah Carey ...in the coming 100 years.

From the list, I like either ABBA or Queen.

Re: Favourite band/artist to sell 300 million records or more?

I voted for Elton because I guess I like his music the most out of these artists . I like his piano playing and his voice is very soothing.

But I also like MJ, Madonna (well, up until 2006 or so), Queen and ABBA.

I'm feelin' they jealous, like I'm Monica Seles.

I was listening to the Mamma Mia soundtrack on the way to work today, if that tells you anything.
