Someone SHOULD slap a tax on these polls...
Well, they can only run so many ads for aftershave...
Q magazine - the number-one mag for rockin' dads everywhere - has published another top-100 poll. This time, they've focused their decaying ears on the best 100 songs of all time, as voted for (of course... well, we hope so) by their readers.
Now look, I am sorry for having a dig at Q, but surely this sort of content padding has to stop, or at least be reduced to only a couple of lists every, like, year. Okay, every other month then.
Oasis - that's them in that there picture - topped the list at positions one and two, with 'Live Forever' and 'Wonderwall' respectively. Strumming eyebrow Noely G said:
“People said to me after 'Live Forever', 'Where are you gonna go after that?'. And I was like, 'I don't think it's that good'. I think it's a good song, but I think I can do better.”
Reeeeeeeeeeaaaaalllllly? Seems a few thousand thirty-somethings disagreed with you, Mr G. The top ten reads as follows (please look away now if you're not a fan of the bleedingly obvious):
1 'Live Forever' Oasis
2 'Wonderwall' Oasis
3 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' Nirvana
4 'A Day in the Life' The Beatles
5 'One' U2
6 'Bohemian Rhapsody' Queen
7 'Love Will Tear Us Apart' Joy Division
8 'Stairway to Heaven' Led Zeppelin
9 'Bittersweet Symphony' The Verve
10 'Paranoid Android' Radiohead
The full list appears in the October issue of Q, which should be out... right now!
