|héhé, Mike may working on his ultimate masterpiece!|
Someone wondered about Mike being unhappy with the low sales of Amarok. I assume that is because he (as well as many of us) thought it was one of his best pieces. As a devoted musican he has a lot of pride for those creations he thinks are best, and if there is very little response on them (relative to some of his other work) that feels kind of irritating. Of course I can't read his mind, but I think that played more of a roll than money in him feeling sad about the low sales. I think we should read low sales as low interest (no, not the money kind of "interest" ).
And to the person comparing MO's sales with those of Madonna: 250.000.000 vs 25.000.000
OK she still has sold 10 times as many records in less time (unless one of the figures counts singles while the other one does not, but singles do not count for more than 15.000.000 at max), but still 25.000.000 is a huge number to me .
