Why do I do this to myself?

I have just sat through the 100 Best Selling UK singles run down, and what a trawl through the bottom of the stinking barrel of pop badness it was. It seems that the 60's - 70's were the hey day of the single and tonight we had all the Egelbert Humperdink. Aker Bilk, Boney M and Boyzone I can stomach. And I loathe Grease.

I wasn't surprised really, popular taste always has been the lowest common denominator, but there was only about three bearable songs, Blondie, Soft Cell and New Order.

I won't even go into my rant about cover versions that are the same as the original. I won't.

but CANDLE IN THE WIND at number one? Watch me choke on my vomit! Horrible, horrible over-sentimental bilge.
I HATED THE FUCKING WOMAN!!
Diana was as false as they come, shallow and a master manipulator of the press. She only had any sympathy at all because she looked good in a ball gown. Ask Fergie.
Did I say I HATED THE FUCKING WOMAN?
And although her death was quite shocking, I'm vilified 'cause I couldn't give a crap! I think I even lost a job over it.

Right rant over, it's safe now.
