Comparing 2009 to 69

Interesting article I originally found in the Sydney Morning Herald, but the link led me here:

It gives the stats on the top sellers in music for these years with the observation of how dominant pop is. But the whole media environment has changed and it seems to be like comparing apples with oranges. The ‘top sellers’ mean less these days because people choose their own music and don’t have to follow the trends. This kind of pop seems almost irrelevent, like the remainders for those who just have no taste in music. If you aren’t particular about the food you eat, a big mac will do. It’s probably the world’s most eaten food item, but so what? It still sucks.
