Doesn't this programme seem a bit stupid - as I notice some of the records came out last year... Such as...
Mad World (!) How can that be a record for this year? It was Xmas No 1 at the end of last year for Heaven's sake - from a 3 YEAR OLD movie.
Leave Right Now - Well I could have sworn this came out last year from Will Young as well...
There was no way the record of 2003 was Worstlife's cover of [i]Mandy[/i] - contrary to popular belief it was not recorded by Barry Manilow originally (though he made it his own I guess), it was first a hit in 1971 for Scott English.
The charts mean Sweet FA this days IMO, as does "Single to début at Number 1" - ALL singles seem to do that now?! :wacko: That doesnt mean anything anymore. Maybe the Guinness Book Of Records should have a new statistic - lowest sales for a Number 1. That happened this year with a mere 22,500 sales (I think) which is pathetic! Can't remember what the song was.
Nobody buys singles anymore! Some of todays' biggest selling acts would of been lucky to make the Top 20 back in the 80's.
