Guilty Favourite Songs

Recommended Posts

Hits by the likes of Status Quo and S Club 7 are among the Top 50 tracks people are too embarrassed to admit they own.

 

Q magazine's Top 10 includes Rebel Yell by Billy Idol and Rock & Roll Part 2 by Gary Glitter and Quo's Whatever You Want.

 

Barbra Streisand's epic Woman In Love, Devil Woman by Sir Cliff Richard and I Could Be So Good For You by Minder star Dennis Waterman also make the list.

 

But the top spot goes to the Electric Light Orchestra with their 1976 hit Livin' Thing.

 

"ELO may never be fashionable, but in terms of sheer aural elation, this betters more revered bands' entire back catalogues," said Q.

 

More Than A Feeling by Boston was second, followed by S Club 7.

 

Also hiding away in the Top 50 were Ronan Keating's Life Is A Rollercoaster, Letter From America by The Proclaimers and Livin' La Vida Loca by Ricky Martin.

I'm don't feel guilty in any way about loving Adam & The Ants. I used to run about with white tape over my nose belting out stand and deliver when I was a bairn.

Fuck-I hadnt even noticed the misspelling. Must have had my mind on other things ;)

 

It was in response to (I think) Wacky Jnr's rebuke to his missus when she does something out of line-ie smears bread and flora on her face. He'd just revealed that she'd displayed a particular disobedience and that was your response. :)

They were talking about this on the radio this morning and they came to the conclusion that Q were being uber-cagey about this list.

 

Where's Take That? Where's Black Lace, etc?

 

Just like someone saying "borderline boilers" and someone saying "Keira Knightley" tbh
