No doubt that will change at some point and interest will once again pick up.
But at the moment, it just ain't there.


One thing that makes a song a hit, these days, is being featured in a popular film or advert.

If only that happened to our boy, things could be very different.....................


I agree, and it only takes the use of a song in a film to catch on and then the whole thing changes and suddenly "Elvis is Back" - as happened with Oceans Eleven, of course. The use of A Little Less Conversation in that film led, I believe, to the success of E1vis and 2nd to None compilations and, no doubt, played a part in the success of the 1968 Tv Special and Aloha DVDs. But unti that happens again...
