http://www.thebestmusicyouneverheard.com Welcome to "The Best Music You Never Heard". In my travels, through life, and my search for good music, I have found that the industry has been ignoring some very vital music, just because the artists don't have the look, the age, or some other b.s. other than the person's talent. We are here to give you, the talented musician who doesn't fit into the size two dress or isn't 19 years old, a venue to share your work with the world. It was expressed to me, that if Aretha Franklin were to be entering into todays music business she may not get a record deal because she never looked like Beyonce, Brittany Spears, Ashante, Christina Aguilera, Mariah Carey, J-Lo, etc. Now I am not putting down these artists because I am sure they are working very hard at developing their skills, I enjoy their music too, but I also know there are people out there who can give them a run for their money, who can't model for "Covergirl".

*What is Traffic Rank?
The traffic rank is based on three months of aggregated historical traffic data from millions of Alexa Toolbar users and is a combined measure of page views and users (reach). As a first step, Alexa computes the reach and number of page views for all sites on the Web on a daily basis. The main Alexa traffic rank is based on the geometric mean of these two quantities averaged over time (so that the rank of a site reflects both the number of users who visit that site as well as the number of pages on the site viewed by those users). The three-month change is determined by comparing the site's current rank with its rank from three months ago. For exsample, on July 1, the three-month change would show the difference between the rank based on traffic during the first quarter of the year and the rank based on traffic during the second quarter.
