Mozart never made much of a living from music while he was alive. History, though, has treated him well.
Here are ten great purveyors of pop music whose works are going to last decades longer while the likes of Miley and Bruno are long forgotten. It can’t happen soon enough.
1. The Everly Brothers – best pop singers ever. Every duo who ever tried close harmony singing will admit this. Ask Paul Simon or Macca or The Secret Sisters or Waddy Wachtel.
2. Sam Cooke – the ultimate soul singer, pop singer, and a great writer whose song “Change Is Gonna Come” changed everything and made pop music relevant.
3. Carole King– the longest-charting female songwriter of all time, and one of the best ever. Taylor Swift is no Joni Mitchell, and she is definitely no Carole King.
