    Janet Jackson more than The Who? I can't buy that.

    There are quite a few other acts that I believe would be at the very least ahead of Kylie Monogue (sp?) that aren't on the list. However, I've got no proof. And every time one of these comes out, there's another "official" list to refute the prior's findings.

    OH! The listing if from France.

    Nevermind.
