The Victoria Wood track is infinitely superior to the Hale & Pace one! Why do OCC not credit this as a double A-side on their website?

To be fair it wasn't credited at the time really despite it being on the sleeve of the single!

I love the way the list is unadorned, or separated into years and excludes a hyphen between artist and song title.

I was prompted to sort the list based on character length.

Shortest four - 11 characters or less (excluding spaces)
The Fly U2 (8)
Doop Doop (8)
Game Boy KWS (10)
Believe Cher (11)

Longest Four - 48 characters or more. (excluding spaces)

Somebody To Love Queen/George Michael/Lisa Stansfield (48)
Love Can Build A Bridge Cher/Chrissie Hynde/Neneh Cherry (49)
Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Yellow Polka Dot Bikini Bombalarina (50)
If You Tolerate This Your Children Will Be Next Manic Street Preachers (59)
