Sorry, Mariah + Madonna: Babs Rules Supreme

Barb 1

Despite a new record from Mariah Carey (and a greatest hits disc from Madonna), Barbra Streisand pulled ahead of the pack to score the No. 1 record this week, selling 180,415 copies of Love Is the Answer. It’s her eighth No. 1 record — and makes Babs the only artist ever to have a No. 1 record for five consecutive decades. Mariah, meanwhile, came in at No. 3; the band Paramore beat her for the No. 2 slot. And Madonna? She squeaked on by at No. 7, with 72,159 copies.

      I swear to you that I am not a Babs queen. I could take her or leaves her, didn’t matter. But I love the new CD. It’s just nice music to play in the background. Great voice. Beautifully arranged.

      The alternate CD w/ just the rhythm section is much more interesting than the disc w/ the orchestra. Babs should record in this ‘unplugged’ mode more often, it suits her better.

      Well done Barbra. Working with Diana Krull won out. Excellent album.

      I got tired of Mariah Carey’s lame antics and her tendency to market herself in bikinis and other tiny bits and pieces. Gross, gross, gross.

      I bought Madonna’s 2 CD set, 34 classics and 2 new songs. It’s worth the money.

      Streisand has a beautiful voice, but is an absolute pig of a person, which makes it impossible for me to spend money on anything she does. Sorry my fellow gays.

      Just ordered the Love is the Answer cd from Amazon, along with a replacement of my old cassette tape of Guilty with Barry Manilow.

      One of her (and his) best albums.

      I am not a babs fan but I had no doubt that she would be number 1, as for Madonna, I love her and I certainly bought Celebration, but everyone should already have most of those tracks except for revolver. (WHICH IS AMAZING BTW) It debuted at #7 which is exactly where GHV2 debuted, so it’s neither a win nor a loss…
