What Links Us All

What are the most asked bands (after ripping the albums) in Asia? Gracenote, the company that usually provides the album information when you rip a CD, jsut had its Music Map that shows the "popularity" of artists and albums by region and country in many parts of the world. It does this based on how often Gracenote's database is queried about particular albums or artists
For the Philippines, ythe top artists in their proper order are: MYMP, Parokya ni Edgar, E-heads, Maria Carey, Beatles, Rivermaya, Avril Lavigne, My Chemical Romance, Linkin Park and Bamboo.
Kami NaPo Muna, Infiniti On High, HSM2, Babyface's Playlist, Cafe Bossa by Sitti, Halina sa Parokya, My Bossa Nova by Sitti, Konvicted by Akon, Beyond Acoustics by MYMP and Kami Napo Muna Ulit are the top albums.
The Beatles and Linkin Park still soar in India, but so do Bryan Adams, Backstreet Boys (?) and Pink Floyd as well as their usual suspects like Jagjit Singh, A.R. Rahman and Kishore Kumar. Bealtes and L.P are also strong in Indonesia and Mariah Carey and Bon Jovi. Peterpan, Ungu, Dewa and Ada Bano, names I see in local MTVs, are also strong. L.P., Mariah, Avril and Chemical Romance plus Greenday are the foreign acts in Malaysia. In Pakistan, LP, Beatles, Metallica, Eminem, Judas Priest, Guns N Roses and U2 are hot in Pakistan. The late Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, who is their Freddie Aguilar/Jose Mari Chan/APO combined is only 4th.
In Thailand, LP and Beatles as well as Clash are the most ripped foreign artists. In Taiwan, LP is also there.
Except for Japan and South Korea, the main denominator among Asian countries is Linkin Park, followed by Beatles. What does this mean? Mga jeprox at jologs pala ang mga Asyano. Wooh! Headbangerrrrs! Longhairrr! Jhologs!!!
