    When A Song Is Vying For Top Of The Pops...

    It's usually shite. Simple. *exception being all appearances of The Smiths on the telly show, they made me giggle...because Moz was clearly bemused.

    Find The Good Stuff And Expand Your Horizons

    There is a lot of great music out there, past and present, by very creative people. The trick is finding it.  Everybody has a pop song that is a guilty pleasure, but discovering good music outside the corporate mainstream is very rewarding.  Listen...

    The Last Time I Checked

    Last time I heard the Top 40 (which was about a week ago) it was nothing but horrible commercialized mash-ups. I was extremely disappointed.

    The Top 40 (on a whole) isn't what music is about I don't think.Its souless, commercialised garbage, designed to sell quick.The Top 40 most definatly suck.I wouldn't really call it music.

    It Would Be Nice To Turn On The Radio And Hear Something That Didn't Make You Feel Like Smashing Up The Kitchen And Strangling The Cat.

    An Ongoing Rant For Me!

    I pretty much always have felt this way...the whole way commercial radio is structured is just to pander to the least common denominator,once a band makes the top 40 they are almost always guaranteed to have had the life and soul sucked out of 'em...more or less.  True,I do...
