Music - The Definitive 200? Ha...!

Mon Mar 19, 2007 12:15 am

The National Association of Recording Merchandisers (NARM), probably one of the world's most unkown associations, apparently tried to sharpen it's public profile and published the "Definitive 200 List" - records everyone should own.

http://www.definitive200.com/

I agree with a lot of what can be found on that list, but how in the world did Shakira (spelling?) or 50 Cent manage to replace Genesis, Peter Gabriel, Mike Oldfield, Sting and The Talking Heads to name but a few?

It's not that I expect to find an exact copy of my list of the "definitive 200", but I fail to see what criteria were used to make up the list? Financial success? Being progressive and "ahead of it's time"? They talk about "classics", but how can Shakira's "Laundry Service" be a classic and "The Lamb..." or "Tubular Bells" are not?
