Mexican Chart Update

One of our readers added more chart information to the site, this time from Mexico. Just like in other countries the "Rubberneckin'" remix jumps up and down on the chart. The single debuted at #78, dropped from the list one week later, only to re-enter at #68 (peak position). This week the single is at #70.

O.K. It was a mis-understanding. I get very defensive when it comes to Elvis, because he meant, and means so much to me.

This message is specially dedicated to gribz, whose comments about Mexican culture are really dummy. It is kind of amazing how people like you and others here, that dont deserve to be named, criticize without knowing with facts your argument. The only and true fact is that you dont know nothing, cause saying that there is no culture at all, therefore music, cause there is no universities, is kind of dumb!
I am mexican and here in my country, libraries are public and various newspapers daily informs a community or a nation whats going in on.'Now, I dont have to be an eminent person to say that opinions like yours, establishing something something you dont have even the most minimum idea, is really for a big ignorant individual. I do read and know that a nation is not a governement, is its people.
Another point, yes, it is true that Elvis in Mexico does not makes a big fuss about him, cause it isnt a so mediatic culture. Because they dont love or dont remember Elvis, is bad, time just changes and world music must go on. I am a true Elvis listener that can establish that he still is one of the greatest along with the Beatles, Sinatra, Hendrix and so on, but saying that before him, Mexico didnt had music is absurb. What about Mambo, boleros, rancheras, 'gruperas, yeah I know, you are ignorant about that.
Now, Elvis here, they do know them the people for his early work such Jailhouse Rock and Dont Be Cruel and they do know him to be as good or better than Sinatra and the best of all they recognize him as one of many that created showbusiness.
As a final comment, Gri..., perhaps you will like to take a course of Mexican Culture at many iniversities that exists in Mexico like the UNAM,IPN, TEC DE MONTERREY, UDEM, etc, in order you can acquire a little bit of your so called "cultural awareness". After that you can ask for an exchange to another country, cause, you may still be ignorant!

Gribz, I think a misunderstanding. It was a reaction on 8735 who said that a university girl said Elvis IS old, etc. When we are talking about Elvis IS, it means he's still alive and that what would be great. By the way I'm 56. And sure was was heavy, but it was his voice that interested me.

Yeh Freddy boy.. He was heavy the last year of his life; and since when is 42 old.. Get a life guy, and stop being negative, you might live longer!!!

I wished Elvis IS old, fat etc. Then he was still alive !

For agent 8735. Those students are deluded. They wouldn't have the music they love today without Elvis.. Seems like the lack of respect they have, is part of the reason Mexico is in the condition it is today.. Also, there are no important Universities in Mexico..They most importantly need a Cultural Education awareness course.

"Elvis is old, fat and horrible"- said to me some university girls from one very important University in México. "Don´t worry about the news, Elvis don´t sell" said to me one seller from Sanborns, the most important mexican store in México.

The reactions of the customers were between indifference, disdain. The customers were more interested in singers: "33" of Luis Miguel, "No es lo mismo" of Alejandro Sanz, and the news of Ricky Martin. For Mexican customers: "Elvis is old, fat and horrible"- said to me some university girls. "Don´t worry about the news, Elvis don´t sell" said to me one seller. Was a resounding ruin.
The day of debut in México, nothing in newspapers. sadly but very sincerely
