Madonna is a genius.

Dylan might rank as high as a group like Abba.

We're just knocked out.
We heard about the sell-out.
You gotta get an album out.
You owe it to the people.
We're so happy we can hardly count.
Everybody else is just green,
Have you seen the chart?
It's a hell of a start,
It could be made into a monster
If we all pull together as a team.

And did we tell you the name of the game, boy?
We call it Riding the Gravy Train.

I'm not sure if you can tell Dedans, but I'm agreeing with you. Not all "#1's" are created equal and most of the best music never even sniffs the billboard or any other popular chart for that matter
