Ha! I needed to have 10 in order to give Brassneck a 9 - it'd be 7 otherwise, so selected quite a few I wouldn't normally. But Thank You For the Music really is awful, I'd happily hear practically any novelty record ahead of it.

(Not least because I have a real love for novelty records)

novelty records rate - now there's a theme for another day....! I do love lots of really old novelty records, bit of a lost art these days, unless you count John Legend, which is unintentionally hilarious teresa.gif

the Fraggle Rock revival starts here - official laugh.gif

Well, I have to admit that although I havent heard it in decades I can still hum the tune (which is more than I can say for, say, The Dead Kennedys as I never actually heard it, being as it wasn't on the chart show and all)
