    And even though Michael Jackson, in a PR move, named himself The King of Pop, I’ve always thought Elton John deserves that title.

    Although, with an astounding 33 hits, Billy Joel could make a strong claim.

    Madonna, of course, is the Queen of Pop. I believe only Mariah Carey can compete.
