About Kylie Minogue, Steven wrote:
  She definitely deserves to!!! Regardless of what some of my fellow Americans think of it, you just can't ignore the longevity she has in the music industry, there aren't many Female artists who survived the 80's and are still big stars today, I can think of only her and Madonna right now... Plus she's considered as one of the most powerful women in the UK after the Queen herself, so big fat YES from me.

  Lovely, only one track from the past 30 years, yet 8 more to the 70's?!? Very disappointing, I wish we would have split the genre into two groups now.

About Duran Duran, Enigmaticus wrote:
  Duran Duran has definitely been busy working on their new album. According to a recent interview by the band, it may be their best work to date.

Perhaps next year, will finally be the year of Duran Duran?

About Rush, Enigmaticus wrote:
  I had found out recently that a 6 BluRay or 10 DVD set of Rush's most recent live concerts will be available in November. This is released in order to celebrate Rush's 40th anniversary. Of course, the band itself is now over 46 years old.

Here is a link to that set:

http://www.rush.com/r40-40th-anniversary-collectors-box-set-available-in-dvd-blu-ray/

I had noted that 3 songs from "Roll The Bones" keep showing up on Rush's more recent releases, therefore I am planning on discussing "Roll The Bones" in greater detail in the not too distant future.

About Chicago, Ben wrote:
  Alright. I can't believe Chicago aren't in Rock n'Roll Hall of Fame. They were so popular in the 70's. You would think they up Hall's alley. Also their first 3 albums were great contributions to Rock. A couple years ago I was thinking it was because after the mid 70's they were pure Pop. I don't even like their 80's stuff. That would have been a good theory except Abba went in and Hall & Oates went in. They are pure Pop. They were certainly Pure Pop in the 80's. So what gives. Chicago therefore should certainly go in. The fact that they were a Solid Rock outfit early on makes them more worthy than the 2 artists I mentioned above. They certainly have a long career that shouldn't be ignored. No way. Their 70's stuff makes them worthy.

  Thanks for compiling this list, Paul! That's rather interesting, and it strengthens my case that Mariah is the most baffling omission in the Rock Hall Projected.

About Sade, Philip wrote:
  Enig, in all seriousness, there are several reasons why Sade isn't in. The Hall has been very picky about 80's artists, they've been almost just as picky about R&B in the past decade or so, and they have been incredibly slow to recognize artists that has been almost completely lite about their sound. Now you can argue about all their rhythmic greatness and all, but to the average listener, they are lounge jazz/R&B. They are lite, polite, and the most exciting thing about their music is the bass line... not even a fuzz bass, not even the rhythm line because the drums are subdued. Note that word. "Subdued" is a word that is almost the antithesis of the ethos of rock'n'roll, as held by the Foundation.

On top of all that, Sade is the 80's equivalent of Percy Sledge. Had several songs, but ultimately known for ONE song. Ask John Q. Public to name another song beside "Smooth Operator", and they can't do it. No mention of "Paradise" (which imo, is Sade's magnum opus), no mention of "No Ordinary Love" or "Sweetest Taboo." It's just "Smooth Operator."

Beyond that, Sade is pretty far back in the line for "biggest snubs". Maybe not your line, but the line for most other people. If I were to give you a list of artists I think are big snubs... Sade won't even be in the Top 50. Plus, who cites Sade as an influence? How are they innovative? Not very either way.

So there. You want an answer to your question. That's why Sade isn't in the Hall, and probably won't be in the Hall for a long time. I could be wrong, strange stuff has happened, but I don't see it.

  I had just finished watching "Bring Me Home Live 2011," on BluRay yesterday. I must admit that it was really quite a magnificent presentation.

Of course, their performance of 'Smooth Operator' was definitely the highlight of this spectacular concert, in my honest opinion.

So once again, I have to wonder why Sade is not in the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame?

It doesn't look like Mama, I'm Coming Home was ever inducted. The metal genre was March of this year.

  PopeCharming -

I'll save you a bit of time, at least with our numbero uno. It's actually Mariah Carey and Muse tied for first, with 4 songs each. I would support both, for the record, but I would prioritize Mariah.

About The Song Project, PopeCharming wrote:
  I'd support a category vote for Rock Hall Projected artists who are under-represented in the Song Project- but with lowering the bar to 2 or less songs, rather than 3 or less. I think we need one Jeff Beck or Wanda Jackson song in before we need a fourth song by Devo or Faith No More.

By the way- I'd be curious to know which artists have the most songs in the Song Project without being inducted into the Rock Hall Projected. I'd guess Three Dog Night and America is in the mix, but once I finish grading papers, I'll do the research and put the matter to rest.

  Gassman, I really like your genre concept. Do you wanna wait one more month so we can get the most recent Projected class inducted? I think this is an excellent idea though.

I noticed one mistake in your list, Buzzcocks has 3 songs in The Song Project, not 1 (as I asked FRL to help fix).

After this genre vote, King Crimson might have its 3rd or even 4th song, The Moody Blues its 4th, and Emerson, Lake & Palmer its 4th, so those are things to keep in mind too.

  FRL,

please fix it so all three instances of "Buzzcocks" are parallel.

Also, "By the Way" by RHCPs and "You Know I'm No Good" by Amy Winehouse are listed twice.

Lastly,

Ozzy Osbourne - Mama, I'm Coming Home (1991)

was inducted a long time ago in the Metal genre vote, and is not listed.
