There have been several posts/debates over the last few weeks about the standard of music and not what it used to be etc. And how marketing has taken over and the likes of Pop Idol persuades 10,000,000 to lift the phone and vote. And how these great 'idols' seem to be just made to churn out more cover versions. Anyhow, the reason for this post is that I just heard yesterday that, for the 1st time since the early 50s (or even before - can't remember exact dates) the US Top 40/75 does not contain any British music. That is rather scary cos there is a lot of dross in the US too, so the dross over here must be worse. Any thoughts?
