*Listening to Sigur Rós – Takk*
Well who’d have thunk it? The people spoke and Rage actually got to Number One. After coming close last year, the people of Facebook actually went through with it and defeated Simon Cowell’s latest “prodigy.” Pathetically, this and snow is supposedly worthy of headline news.
I’m behind neither side. I don’t care for chart music, it isn’t aimed at me, I’d rather give my ear drums a succession of slow punctures with a tetanic compass than listen to most of it. The only people who actually buy singles these-days probably have a mean age of around 12. The charts don’t matter to people anymore, I couldn’t tell you who was at number one last week, or the week before. I would probably struggle to land on one this year. When was the last time Radio One was coming from your radio at 7pm on a Sunday?
