Best Buy?

I was in a record store the other day when I saw that Lenny Kravitz had released a greatest hits album. First of all, the words "Lenny Kravitz" and "greatest hits" do not belong together in the same phrase, and secondly, since when does Lenny Kravitz deserve a greatest hits album? Blur – same thing. Who knew that Blur had enough greatest hits to release a whole album of 'em? Can you name a Blur song other than that "woo-hoo" one? I didn't think so. Even Type O Negative has a greatest hits album out. If they're so fucking great, how come I've never heard of them, let alone any of their "hits"? Attention all musicians: getting famous does not justify the premature release of a self-indulgent greatest hits album. You kinda need the songs to back up the whole "greatest hits" aspect. Why do the Beatles get to release a greatest hits album? Because they have 27 number one hits. When (and if) you get at least five, then maybe I'll reconsider.
