One of the more intriguing musical questions to me of the last 10-15 years is how and why the British and American musical scenes have almost completely diverged. Back in the 80s the top 40 charts in both countries were about 3/4 identical in any given week, and rather heavily skewed towards the Brit artists. Now maybe 20% of the British charts are American, and maybe 3-5% of the Americans charts are of British artists. Which is rather sad, as British rock - and even prefab pop - tends to be a lot better than the Americans'.
Anyway, this writer's musical elitism totally pisses me off, and now I'm going to go blast some 70s pop just to spite him. Maybe some Carpenters.
