    Re: Clay Aiken

    Journey is #5???

    This might gage a moment, but I don't buy it as a predictor. Fleetwood Mac? James Taylor? Lionel Richie? With all due respect, these artists are probably having last gasp resurgences.

    Re: Clay Aiken

    Note that that chart is for "Mainstream Adult Contemporary." If you listen to mainstream AC stations, you might be surprised how much of their air time is given to "recurrents" (oldies that have long since passed their eligibility for the Billboard Hot 100, etc.) Some "classics" by James Taylor, Journey, Fleetwood Mac, Stevie Wonder, Billy Joel, etc., get played often on mainstream AC. Also, this chart reflects touring and other factors that may weigh differently from just airplay and current entertainment media spotlight. Older big name artists such as Santana, Billy Joel, and James Taylor still do well playing live concerts, even if they don't always book huge arenas. And Clay's a great example of someone who does quite well on the concert circuit even when he can't seem to get much radio support.

    Aah, I stand corrected again. We don't have a station like that on this island (and for the most part I'm glad about that, though I do like some of the artists.)

    I still think it's funny that some of those names are so big now, but I'm happy for a lot of them too.

    Re: Clay Aiken

    Sorry for the double post.

    This got me really wondering how much of a bubble I'm living in. We do have an "oldies" station that plays some but not most of these artists. So I checked the Billboard and other AC charts and saw that they really are different from this list. I realize that this list is based on more than chart performance, but it's supposed to predict chart performance, but it doesn't. Am I missing something?

    I realize this is veering off-topic but once again I'm fascinated with musical trends, and here's where it came up. Thank you.

    If your station specializes in Don Ho, you are indeed living in a Tiny Bubble.

    Good one, rb! And may he rest in peace.

    We do have Hawaiian stations here, but others too. They are mostly, admittedly (by me), isolated.

    This list just strikes me like the Idol Report Card -- not very scientific, and obviously flawed.

    Re: Clay Aiken

    I should probably hop off this thread before I make enemies

    But first, as I like living on a rock but not under one, I want to report my bit of informal research on Promosquad/HitPredictor.

    First, from what I can tell, their claims of validity come almost entirely from within, even after five years in (single-selling) business.

    The other thing I noticed, and more interesting to Idol discussion, is that right after the heaps of self-aggrandizement come references from fan bases, especially Taylor's and Clay's. Seems there's a lot of promotion of HitPredictor on fan sites, as well as backlash towards fans' "spamming" of the site.

    I think both of them are great guys and wonderful talents and I want them to do well. But if survey participants are motivated to join to boost their faves, it would skew things. But then I don't see how the results are really helping the artists, whose fans are gonna support them as long as they enjoy them, anyway.

    Interesting phenomenon, though. My apologies if I'm making too much of it. My time in the music industry taught me nothing if not distrust. I'll go back to my real life now.
