Anyone else watch this, it's been on repeat on bbc three for **** knows how long now, possibly years.

....I've found a new love, and it's for people who appear on these shows and criticise for the sheer point of criticism.
Music critics, people who get paid to criticise music ....

"shiny hapy people, well i dont know what its like over in california but over here in britian were not so shiny and happy, so you can just **** off back to sunny california"

"what rock band writes a song about war anyway?" - That being refered to the manics who were portrayed as these studenty, self-loving whiney immitation intelectuals.

There was no real reasoning behind the criticisms, I got to watch a bunch of people count down this list and make complete arses of themselves. If you don't have a genuine criticism then why ****ing bother coming up with one!!!

On the other hand Most of the list seemed agreeable...

However im rather fond of

97
94
84
75
67
63
51
49
44
37
35
33
29
22
11

Also I feel you can't really criticise a song for being over-played, or for the people that listen to it. I will srvive, although immediately i think of desperate unattractive rat-women with bad karaoke, was a great number. Can't knock it because the people around you are doing bad version of it.

That seems like a weird comment to make about a band from Georgia. Am I missing something here?

Perfect 10 is a great song and even better if you get what the lyrics are about.

I'm down with 18, but only because I have fond memories of my brother doing a quite theatrical and hilarious rendition of this song.

And I like 92 also.

I love Parklife, Every Breath You Take, and Nikita, and I don't hate myself for it.
