"The Greatest Greatest Songs - EVER! As voted for by YOU!"

Oh, and by the way, in one of those side-boxes they have, they asked a certain celebrity about their favourite song:

Chantelle Houghton - Big Brother Winner
"My favourite is 'You're The One For Me, Fatty' by Morrissey, for a number of reasons. It reminds me of Preston, my mum and my stepdad."

the other day there was a list of 100 favourite albums in the english papers voted for on a radio station and there wasn't one smiths album there! sorry if it has already been mentioned
 
Every Q list is crap. It's what's turned it into a totally crappy magazine. The sooner they give the crappy editor the boot the better.

it's partly because of all the hype surrounding them. when that list is done again in a few years time the smiths songs will still be there, probably higher, whereas the arctic monkeys songs will be a lot lower or not even there at all as all the hype will have died down.
 
A bad influence of course!
You should hear my mum when I talk like that! "Where did you learn to talk like that? Go wash your mouth with soap!" :rolleyes:

well, now you can tell her you learned it from no one (and not be lying!) ;)

also, hilarious that she just idly instructs you to wash your mouth with soap!

(you know, this could be a really good topic for a thread! how rough do you talk and what age did it start? maybe i'll do it.... :D )
