    Charlotte Church

    Girls Aloud

    Sugababes


    Wot, no Max Bygraves?

    I had to go to the poll site to find out who Will Young was. Maybe they can release Mark Chapman from jail so he can shoot him.

      It's not so much who's on it, it's a list of the most popular artists on one particular station with a clearly defined listener base with a very commercial, narrow range of tastes. It's the fact they then try to claim it is some sort of definitive list for the whole country?!?!

      I'm usually mortally offended by these things but this one just has me giggling everytime I see it. I'll save that for when I need a laugh

                  Alas, most polls tell you more about the people who responded than about the subject at hand...

                    I didn't see Tony Blair anywhere on that list.

                          Base! Think about it. You're suggesting it might be more sane over here? Stay right where you are, that list is pretty scary but no where near as sadly pathetic as our list. I haven't seen our list, but I'm sure it's a good one...

                          BTW... I like Robbie Williams. I wish he'd hit here like he has there. We're missing out on some good pop. Snow Patrol too...

                            Hmm, good point, maybe there's a nice uninhabited island I can take up residence in somewhere

                            Yeah, I like a lot of Robbie Williams stuff too (don't think I'd rate him quite as high as on that list tho, but I could accept him being on it somewhere).

                            All the more surprising that coming from Take That makes him the Brit equivalent of justin timberlake!!!!!!

                              I was being semi-jocular on this one. As Hendrix didn't make it big until he went to the UK, many English rockers consider him "one of their own" until the day he died.
