I tried, I really did. Being open-minded I thought I'd give that tune a whirl on youtube and maybe be converted into a Zappa fan.

I think I reached about 50 seconds before it sounded like a couple of people were beeping car horns on there. If I really wanted to hear something like that I'd buy a house next to a roundabout.
I had to knock it off.


I don't give a damn about any trumpet playing band, it ain't what they call rock and roll.

There's jokes and there's jokes, but Elvis is spinning in Graceland.
You know, I'm sick of following my dreams, man. I'm just going to ask where they're going and hook up with 'em later.

I see you've conveniently left out Andrew Lloyd Webber, probably Wales' most famous modern day composer.

My Auntie used to babysit him when he was a toddler :thumbl:

Fully onboard with I Feel Love at no.4, huge track, especially the extended version, but You Spin Me Round at no.5? :shock: :shake1:

I guess it shows that the nature of number ones often tends towards the beige a little, doesn't it? Populism in action. Pleasantly surprised to be reminded that 3am Eternal made it to no.1.

Top five is missing? Be disappointed if Ghost Town wasn't there, and depressed that Bohemian Rhapsody will be.


Ghost Town in at number 2.

Given Beatles at 3, I'm not sure where they're going to head for no.1?

I've been thinking they might choose God Save The Queen, even though it didn't technically get to number one.

If the number one song is not Mull of Kintyre then the whole thing has been a waste of time.

Has to be Strawberry Fields/Penny Lane.
Total no brainer, that.

I was just thinking about great big pop wallopers not included so far and became concerned that Angels wasn't on the list. Quite surprised to see that it was never higher than 4 in the charts, however.

They were just ripping off ELO in advance.

yeah, dunno if it's the second best, obviously. i mean, it's very good, sounding great whilst meaning something no small feat.

What about Jumping Jack Flash, that was writen about Keith Richards crazy gardener.

A great tune with a lot of meaning, even though I like The Specials for me it's a much better song than Ghost Town or any other tune on that list. In fact it's a gas.
No band at the time could compete with the Basswork of Bill Wyman.
Coupled with the unrivaled lead guitar work of Brian Jones.
Keith keeping it going with his chunky rhythm play.
Billy Preston with his usual classy keyboard style.
Charlie not missing a beat, and Mick at his vocalistic best.
No fancy studio gizmos and gadgets, just raw rock at it's best. A perfect musical feast for those that like rock not pop.
It really was a pace-setter for other bands to try to follow.



It's probably the number one single, can't wait to find out :thumbl:
