Re: Guardian 100 Greatest UK No.1's

BushedCrutler7h ago West End Girls it is then. This list has been compiled by people of a certain age, hasn't it? laurasnapes BushedCrutler7h ago Staff 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 ...

Re: Guardian 100 Greatest UK No.1's

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 ...

Won’t be stormzy. Only UK number ones were Vossi Bop or Own It. Hardly genre defining
It's the Guardian. :wink:

Re: Guardian 100 Greatest UK No.1's

Like any list like this, it's preposterous and ultimately pointless but I'm still interested to see whether PSB are ignored or not. Ashes to Ashes should be there instead of Let's Dance, while Get It On being just behind Carly Rae Jepsen and Lil Nas X is particularly galling.

There may be more covers on the list, but off the top of my head, Tainted Love is on there.

Nothing Compares 2 U too. Anyway, the Fabs are at number three so that clearly just leaves The Specials and something from the Abba-esque EP.....

Re: Guardian 100 Greatest UK No.1's

Ghost Town and something (not Something) by The Beatles must be in the top three. Of course Strawberry Fields / Penny Lane should be number one but only got to number two. :roll:

I went to that Decadance party too and was also taken by a couple of fans to see Neil’s early 1990’s house in Wimbledon.
I can't imagine Neil living south of the river.

Re: Literally and Versus America musings.

2) 'Pete' isn't Pete Gleadall Again not having picked up the books for 30 years, my memories of the content have become a bit sketchy. As Pete Gleadall's role has increased over the years I just assumed that Pete was Pete. 4) Neil travels alone Whilst Chris has a 'personal assistant', Neil seems to...

Re: Review: the most common thought from a non PSB fan about the PSB discography

Bilingual has a weak start. The drums taken from the song Matador are really annoying, then the album improves but you can't comare it to Very. Before, Single-Bilingual were very weak singles. At least, they improved A Red Letter Day with the single version. Somewhere is a amzing but it was include...
