For anybody that does not know Davey, all can be explained. He has just woke out of a coma which he has been in for the last twenty years. I really don’t know where to start, where are all the classics? By the way you are not allowed best ofs either!!

Me said...

I really must apologise to Steve for not including his all-time classics -- 'Take That And Party', 'We Are The Cheeky Girls' and 'Spiceworld'. I'm looking forward to his personal chart, though it may result in a visit from the taste police.
Regarding 'Best Of's' -- there are several acts, notably Madness and The Police, who have never managed a 'classic album' in my view, but I do still listen to their 'Best Of's' so I think it's OK to put them in.
As for being stuck in a time warp, there are loads of 21st century albums that I really like which aren't included here, like Killing Joke 'Hosannas From The Basements Of Hell' (2006) and er...er...gosh is that the time?

Ahem, says the man who went to see the spice girls movie on his own at the cinema because no one would go with him? Yes, I remember you telling me about that.

I attended the film merely to marvel at the high standard of acting, superb script and snappy dialogue.
And I did ask Steve, but he'd already seen it five times.
