MTV has played such a dominant role in the past 15 years in deciding what
hits the charts and what doesn't. Nowadays, kids sometimes even buy CDs
based on how much they like the video, not the song with the video is
supposed to be support. Maybe Yanni will have to come out and put together
something hip; maybe he'll grab some innercity fans.
