Patrick Swayze's Greatest Hits

The title wouldn't surprise me.

From the Chicago Sun-Times article, Isn't greatness required for 'greatest hits'?

A greatest-hits album once stood as a watershed -- a milestone chronicling a collection of top-rated hits, culturally significant songs or the end of a stellar career.

But in recent years, a flood of ''best of'' titles from acts with only few years in the business -- and performers with even fewer hits -- have called into question how great a greatest-hits collection is.

Among the more questionable greatest hits collections that have popped up in recent years: ''Toy Soldiers: The Best of Martika'' (with one hit from the 1980s); ''The Best of Mandy Moore,'' from an entertainer who had more success as an actress than she ever did as a singer,...And while teen queen Hilary Duff has sold millions of albums, she has released only two discs -- the first one in 2003 -- and neither spawned a top 10 hit. Her ''best of'' collection, ''Most Wanted,'' hit record stores Tuesday.

I've noticed a lot of Best of's lately too. It makes me sick. I agree greatest hits and best of's are for bands with great albums and big followings. Shit how long did it take for Nirvana's best of box set? 10 years after Kurt's death! Hillary Duff needs to make some hit songs and then kill herself, then she may be able to put out a in memory best of CD.

Hillary Duff has a lot of potential...and I'll just leave it at that.

Do you know Rom Gold? I like it.
My brother often go to the internet bar to buy Runes of Magic Gold and play it.
After school, He likes playing games using these Runes of Magic money with his friends.
I do not like to play it. Because I think that it not only costs much money but also spend much time. One day, he give me many buy Rom Goldand play the game with me.
I came to the bar following him and found cheap Runes of Magic Goldwas so cheap. After that, I also go to play game with him.
