Who would have thought?

I can not fathom that Mariah Carey has surpassed Elvis on Number One Hits, and is on her way to pushing out THE BEATLES. Mariah Carey? Really? Not a big fan. And hands down her new song does not warrant the number one slot. Both Elvis and the Beatles are ICONS. The Beatles introduced the world to Rock and Roll(yes, it was considered Rock and Roll at the Time), and Elvis...shaking those hips.....people screaming and crying and fainting (I never understood that kind of stuff) I Mean...He's ELVIS. THE KING FOR CRYING OUT LOUD. And in comes Mariah? I can't recall one of her songs that WOWED me. Can you? is what it is....I guess. At least she acknowledges that she can not be put into the same category as these extrordinary musicians that will forever be 2 of the biggest ICONS in music.
Singer Mariah Carey has passed Elvis Presley for the most No. 1 US singles and is now second only to the Beatles.
But while the diva was in full celebration mode after learning of her latest milestone with her 18th chart-topper "Touch My Body", she was also quick to put her accomplishment in perspective.
"I really can never put myself in the category of people who have not only revolutionised music but also changed the world," she said.
"That's a completely different era and time ... I'm just feeling really happy and grateful."
Carey's single is the new No. 1 on Billboard's Hot 100 singles chart: The song also is No. 1 on the trade magazine's digital download chart.
She had been tied with Presley with 17 No. 1 singles; the Beatles are the all-time leaders with 20 (Madonna also beat a Presley record this week, surpassing the King for the most top 40 hits with her 37th for her hit "4 Minutes".
