I have scanned the forum and cant see a thread dedicated to your opinions on the charts as they stand so I thought I'd start one.

In this thread just talk about the charts, and chart music.. Share your opinions on who you think is going to move up the charts, and share your opinion on who you think is going to go down the charts.

I think we didn't make this thread because we don't really keep up with who's on the charts much, or all live in the same country.

I think the charts are the following:
1) Limiting casual listeners to hearing the same stuff over and over again
2) "grading" music not by how good it is but by how much of it is bought/heard (which, since it has been limited, is not a fair analysis of what artists would actually be supported if there was a broader range)
3) nothing more than business, and a palette for rich greedy label owners to pick out what styles and trends to use when conjuring up the next "big thing".

To me it's all money, all manufactured image, and anything but sincere.



HOWEVER, I am cynical and a grouch.
I know the charts mean something to others, so instead of sitting here and being a douche, I won't frequent this thread and bash any artist named. I said how I felt and I'll leave it at that.

Charts are very difficult to discuss, like for example in what chart is Fun - We Re Young #3?

The charts nowadays mean nothing. The music released nowadays is nothing but manufactured shit anyway.
