Take that, Mudvayne, whoever you are!
Who's your daddy?
It's heartening that Bruce Springsteen can still debut a No. 1 album. What's disconcerting is the fact that I have somehow become such a fogey that I have no idea who any of the acts under him are. Bobby Valentino? Amerie? I thought I recognized Jo Dee Messina until I realized that wasn't the one that went with Loggins. And yes, I know Mariah Carey, but I don't think that's necessarily a good thing.
If it's any consolation, I did own 10 of the 12 No. 1 albums of 1985, until my vinyl records were discarded in my parents' Great Garage Cleanout of 1994. I'd like to say Wham!'s "Make it Big" was among the two I didn't have. But that would be lying.
