Amazon's 10th anniversary Hall of Fame musicians have sold the most CDs on Amazon. While this might seem a populist and arbitrary barometer for Hall of Fame status, the list itself is an eclectic selection of fine musicians.
1. The Beatles: Their musical evolution almost chronicles the growth of popular music and its spreading as a force of the good side against the structures of totalitarianism.
2. U2: Still going strong after 25 years.
3. Norah Jones: A voice to envy, and a father to respect, this singer's range promises to offer much to listeners.
4. Diana Krall: A rule-breaker in the jazz world, she's jazz's top-selling vocalist for all time.
5. Eva Kassidy: A short, short career - yet what a wonderful voice.
6. Frank Sinatra: A legend, an entertainer, and a man's man.
7. Santana: One of rock's most creative and long-lasting influences.
8. Enya: Massage therapists keep this singer top of the list in her league, but her appeal extends beyond them.
9. Bob Dylan: An ever-green cultural icon, he is like the gift that keeps giving.
10. The Rolling Stones: Still the 'world's greatest'.
15 other acts round up the Amazon Music Hall of Fame list.
