## AND, BY THE WAY, CAN SOMEONE DEFINE A HIT? – It’s nearly impossible to determine a hit. Most people myself included use the Billboard #1 as a benchmark. Yet many #1 hits are long forgotten today. Meanwhile, many other songs were never even singles to qualify, yet are remembered as hits. “Stairway To Heaven”? “How Soon Is Now”? Would you say Kyu Sakamoto’s “Sukiyaki” was a bigger hit than The Beatles’ “I Saw Her Standing There”? They were released only 1 year apart, yet by chart standards “Sukiyaki” is the bigger song. So who’s right?
