Sod the Mercury's, this is the one that counts...my witticisms won't be as funny as Popjustice's but here are my opinions anwway;
'Acceptable In The 80s'
Yes, this is good. I hated it at first, but quick as a flash it grew on me.
Now if it was the Girls Aloud version....
'Beware Of The Dog'
The best number one single never to have got anywhere near number one. But Jamelia doesn't like it now, which has nothing to do with her being dropped from her record label.
Well it's better than her follow up single, but not as good as some of the album tracks.
'Don't Give It Up'
The days where something can be good purely because it's "that ginger one who used to be in the Sugababes" are long gone I'm afraid. As a "pop" single this is fairly pointless.
I love Kate Nash. That is all.
See this is the good version of the Donaghy "classic" above.
Well I liked it, even if most people didn't. MEMO TO THE PUBLIC - Rudebox (the album, that is) was not that bad.
I detest this song. This winning would be akin to The View winning the Mercury.
'Something Kinda Oooh'
Their best single since, well, erm...Biology at least.
Bringing out the not-so-latent gayness of Morrissey turned out to be inspired.
Bodyrox feat Luciana
Daft, but one of the few "dance" things I've enjoyed over the past year.
So yeah, it's Calvin Harris or Kate Nash for me. Probably Nash. Because she's lovely.
