Number Four on the Anti-Hit List!

WOW!

Just found out recently that "I Want You Shot" - the first single from "Mashin' Jackson - The Untold Story" - reached #4 on John Sakamoto's famous 'Anti-Hit List' for the week of February 6th, shortly after it's release! That list is one of the world's most famous and respected music blogs, and I am truly honoured and humbled to have been included.

In his review, Sakamoto says:
4. THE JACKSON 5 VS. BILLY JOEL

"Disturbing title aside, this unlikely mash-up completely recasts the latter's swaggering, late-'70s hit "Big Shot" by dropping in an instantly recognizable reference point ("I Want You Back") that had absolutely nothing to do with Joel's original vision. The result attains a quality you probably wouldn't associate with anything else in The Piano Man's oeuvre: exuberance."

Thank you, John!
