I’ve heard from people from the music entertainment business that when they’re producing an album there’s never a certainty which will be the song, or songs, that will be the most successful in an album while it's being recorded and produced.
Certainly the artists do have their favourite songs which they sincerely hope that the public will feel passionate about them as much as they do.
Times are that that happens and times are that it doesn’t.
Also there’s a "reciprocity" of this phenomenon. How many times we simply adore a particular music in an album but that it seems to go unnoticed by the rest of the general public? One person doesn't make a song popular no matter how much one really loves it nor how much one is certain that one is the only one that really understands it.
Fortunately. the popularity of a song is in fact so dependent on so many random factors that otherwise we’d continuously be witnessing an unsurprising regular output of unsurprisingly brilliant tunes evenly distributed over different albums with the pragmatism of a play-list of any modern radio station nowadays.
Same happens with the posts in our blog. Some we expect a certain response and we don’t get it while others are surprisingly popular.
As we’ve said before we don’t write for popularity. Yes, we enjoy knowing our posts are read but in terms of knowing the word is being spread despite all efforts from our adversaries on the contrary, most of which pretend not to feel about us what they really feel. About us and about the subject that the blog deals with.
Fortunately for the three of us, we have among many others, one common trait: none of us seek glory, much the opposite thus our steadfast conviction in our anonymity.
As one of our hubbies has said (you can disregard Fred on this one because it wasn’t him) “you can be rich but it doesn't stop you dying”.
So although material well being is indeed important in our lives as anyone else's, we seek only the richness of having lived a meaningful and honest life filled with true friendship and non-hypocritical values. In that aspect we’re a ruthlessly ambitious lot.
Lately we’ve had a surprise with one of our posts.
After just 199 days after it was published on March 25th this year, it has, on October 10th, become the most popular post of the blog:
It baffles us to why.
