There has been a lot of talk recently in entertainment circles, including in The Windsor
Star on April 3, ballyhooing how Mariah Carey's 18th chart-topper song, Touch My Body,
puts her ahead of Elvis Presley's 17 No. 1 hits and brings her ever so close to matching
or surpassing the Beatles' record tally of 20 No. 1 songs.
While this is an incredible feat for any artist to accomplish, let's put everything into
proper perspective. From her first No. 1 hit in 1990, it has taken Mariah 18 years to get
to her position today. With his untimely death in 1977, Elvis accomplished his feat in 21
On the other hand, beginning in February of 1964, the Beatles hit the top of the charts
20 times in a mere six years. Not too shabby, indeed, considering Capitol and Apple records
only released 30 Beatle 45 rpm records during that same period of time.
After the Beatles' breakup, from 1970 until 1987, there were an additional 16 No. 1 hits
released by Paul McCartney (nine), George Harrison (three), John Lennon (two) and Ringo
Starr (two). However you add it up, if there was ever any artist or act to be put up on an
unreachable pedestal, the Beatles are in a class all by themselves.
Let's see if there are any others out there to go for, or surpass, 36 No. 1 hits. Any
takers? Mariah is halfway there.

Food for thought: It took all four Beatles to score a total of 36 No. 1 hits. This means
an average of 9 No. 1's per Beatle. Mariah alone had a total of 18 No. 1 hits. So what is a

by Philipp from Switzerland
Hey, is anyone of you a member of Mariah's official fanclub Honey B. Fly? I just signed up and I'm surprised that it seems to be for free. Am I doing anything wrong or does it really cost nothing? I want to go see her Christmas shows, that's why I hope that fanclub members will get a early pre-sale or something. I will fly all the way from Switzerl... read more (Tuesday 4 August 2015; 13:37)

Mariah actually looked great in the jeans-black tank top-cream cardigan thing she wore just 2-3 days back. Although I could do without the cardigan but she looked great nevertheless. She also looked great in the gray tank top and jeans she wore to the beach the other day. But that silver shiny top she wore 2 days back was bad.

Lol, no one said Mariah wasn't good looking. She is. I really like you B. You're a real, loving dedicated fan but sometimes you can be a bit delusional. I have been reading this board for years now before I started posting. And I can't tell you how many times I have seen "she is slowly losing the weight". How long does it really take to lose weight... read more (Tuesday 4 August 2015; 11:05)
