I bet it’s Robbie Williams with Angels

Or

Brian Adams with Robin Hood

Unless there’s a missing S or breaking news of the PSB splitting !!
Angels didn’t get to number one.

Won’t be stormzy. Only UK number ones were Vossi Bop or Own It. Hardly genre defining

Reading some of the comments on there, a lot of people are convinced it'll be West End Girls. It's certainly the most likely of PSB's number one singles as it evokes a certain period in time and is genuinely innovative in terms of the hip-hop influence. Perhaps that's partly why they recorded a new version.....

Odds slashed that it’s going to be ‘house if the rising sun’

Let’s go with the thought... West End girls doesn’t make it.

Consider that: Out of the top 100 number ones of all time ... not one ( of their 4 number ones) makes the list

Hmmmmmppppphhhhhh

It will be a sad day :-(

Lets hope I’m being too pessimistic ;-)

West End Girls it is then. This list has been compiled by people of a certain age, hasn't it?

I was -5 when West End Girls came out and thought it sounded rinky-dink as a teenager. What's your logic?


Now she could be disputing the assertion that choosing West End Girls as number one was owing to the writers' shared demographic - or she could still dislike it which, judging by some of her online posts, is unlikely.

Yep, as Joe Stalin said, a band can only appear in the list once, and the Beatles were at #3 on the list, so no, it wont be the Fab Four at #1

Oh, I missed the #3 spot. But PSB on #1? I can't hardly imagine. But still.. No PSB on this list but Whigfield is... THE SUSPENSE IS KILLING ME!
