The state of today's music business is what's creepy, that Paul Anka is still making "hits".

Have Billboard writers given up explanatory transition material for Lent?

The fact that Anka's gone is old news. It was all the radio that Anka's away...

Paul Anka is clearly the inspiration for Glen Quagmire.  Just look at how he moves his head in videos.

Michael Jackson covering Paul Anka sounds even creepier.

So... should we start a list of artists who should record songs written by Paul Anka?

I'll start:
1. Justin Bieber

The song was written in 1983. So it's not so much that he's still making hits, it's more that today's music is so bad that you can recycle crap from 30 years ago and have a hit.

I have a serious question here...

This is only my opinion...  But I put a lot of value in an artist/entertainer that actaully writes as well as performs their own music.  That is, I put Billy Joel on a much higher level than say, Kelly Clarkson, because Kelly, despite her talent as a vocalist doesn't write her own material.  She doesn't play an instrument that I know of either.

To that end, did Michael Jackson wrote any/most of his own material?  Did he even play an instrument?

Michael could play guitar, keyboards and drums but considered his voice his main instrument.  And he did write or co-write most of his songs.

Wow.  I stand corrected.  I didn't know she had done that much.
Terrible example.

Okay.  How about we go with Elvis.  9 songs overall.

I was gonna say Justin Beiber.  But even he has more songs than Elvis.

Still, my point is, I'm always much more impressed with an artist that really does everything themselves.

Should've gone with Whitney Houston. I don't think she wrote anything except her death warrant.

I don't think Garth Brooks has written much either despite selling a bagillion records.

He is hardly alone.

Janis Joplin sold more records after her death than before, as did Jimi Hendrix.
