Oh, I haven't had such a good belly laugh in a while. Thanks, Maclin.

How do you find this stuff?

Clayderman's been around for years. I remember TV ads for his albums way back in the late 70s/early 80s.

I'd never heard of him. Craig, I think this actually was offered to me by eMusic in a list of albums recommended for me specifically, which was kind of disheartening.

Ah, the Musician of Light (TM). I remember those TV ads, too.

I simply can't comprehend the condition of mind in which someone like this would think it a good idea to call himself the world's greatest pianist.

There is much, much more, it appears.

Oh wait, never mind, it's "world's most popular," not "world's greatest." And apparently it's true. "With his lush, sophisticated, instrumental, approach to pop music, Richard Clayderman (born: Phillipe Pages) is, according to The Guinness Book of World Records, 'the most successful pianist in the world.'"

"Instrumental", yes. "Lush", well, ok. "Sophisticated"? uh-uh

What, "most popular" doesn't mean "greatest"? Quick - somebody tell the electoral commission!

Oops...did we just destroy Euro-American civilization?

I clicked on "All I Ask of You" and had to turn it off after 10 seconds.

How is it possible that I had never heard of the world's most popular pianist?

I don't know, Craig, but now that you have I expect to see one of your comprehensive and insightful reviews on your blog.


And then we can chat about it on FB. ;-)


I asked myself the same question, Craig, and decided that it was providential.
