Virgin Radio recently polled some 7,000 of its listeners to discover their favourite single of all time. That's, like, ever. The winner: John Lennon's 'Imagine'.
Shoved into second and third places were 'Hey Jude' and 'Let It Be', which of course involved Lennon in some way, too.
The top ten goes like this:
1: John Lennon 'Imagine'
2: The Beatles 'Hey Jude'
3: The Beatles 'Let It Be'
4: U2 'One'
5: Robbie Williams 'Angels'
6: Queen 'Bohemian Rhapsody'
7: Led Zeppelin 'Stairway To Heaven'
8: The Police 'Every Breath You Take'
9: The Eagles 'Hotel California'
10: James fucking cunting Blunt 'You're Beautiful'
Y'see, I was always of the thinking that 'Stairway...' was never released as a single. But, I suppose I'm wrong, just like all the Virgin Radio listeners that somehow voted for Blunt to be way up there. Anyway, overall The Beatles appear 33 times (there's a list of 500 in all), The Rolling Stones 17 times, U2 15 times and Queen 14 times. Bravo.
