    I think turkey is overrated.

    I prefer ham, roast beef or even salami to turkey.

    I love me some dark meat. I am the only one in my family who likes it so I get my fill.

    While people quibble over the drumsticks, I stockpile on white meat goodness. Superior in every way.

    If you prefer white meat, you should think about going vegan.

    I like dark meat, lamb, game and fishy fish. I wants to taste my animals.

    I'm with you there. I eat a lot of lamb and I love strong fish, and duck occasionally as well.

    If you guys eat any part of the meat you're just doing it all wrong. It's about chewing the bones & slurping out the sweet marrow. Only way to dine.

    Yup. And don't bother with destroying the food by cooking any of it either.

    If you combined their points, they still didn't equal Elvis. Number 1 was better than 2 and 4 combined.

    I guess you can argue that chart success doesn't mean anything, and I'm sure that there are many lists where the Beatles are on top.
    Elvis was a trailblazer. Rock and roll did not exist in the white consciousness until Elvis Presley brought it into acceptance. Popular music since (especially rock n roll) was spawned from Elvis. It was the 50s, and people, especially whites (teens), never heard or seen a man do such things before. He was an originator and quite unique. Could one say "No Elvis, then no Beatles?" I think one could. Everyone had their mentor, those that influenced them.

    But could Elvis be considered an artist? He didn't write his own music, and was an adequate rhythm guitar player (it became more of a prop). His forte was in performing and delivery. And yep, boy could he deliver.

    And Dylan was also a great influence on the Beatles. But the Beatles, IMO, were a very progressive band.

    Here are a couple good articles on Lennon and Elvis, and when the Beatles met him....

    Lennon's song "Starting Over" was John getting back to his roots, and done ala Elvis.

    I have to agree with Mr. GAC about Elvis. And I would simply like to state that I believe Elvis was much more talented than he was allowed to show himself to be. The studio and the industry manipulated his talent and molded it into what they perceived he should be.

    Re: Most Overrated

    I just watched a special called "Elvis '56" about the year that he really took off.

    It showed quite a few performances from that year, and I have to agree... I'm not sure how much of it was really about the music.

    It went pretty much like:
    1. 1st verse and refrain: sing with the whole "sneer" thing.
    2. Solo: run around and convulse randomly while lead guitar guy plays a few licks
    3. 2nd verse and refrain: back to the sneer


    Seriously...I actually found it a bit odd. And I found myself drawing more similarities and comparisons of Elvis to Justin Bieber than Elvis to the Beatles.
    "And why do false truths persist, getting passed down the decades as if they were fact? It comes back to the same point: People believe things that are wrong because, individually, people rarely investigate their own beliefs, particularly when what they believe makes sense intuitively. Even more so when those around them agree with them." -K.F.
