THE FRIDAY FIVE – 9.12.2011

1. Kelly Jones – Can’t Take My Eyes Off You
2. Rihanna – We Found Love
3. Madness – You Keep Me Hanging On
4. Kiss – God Gave Rock n Roll To You
5. Oasis – Who Feels Love?

Now for the weekly chart based on the previous week’s X-Factor theme. Last week, it was Motown, and surprisingly, they all sang Motown songs and didn’t rip the piss and/or make it up as they go along.

If Berry Gordy was still alive, he would have loved it. Oh, he is still alive. I suppose that’s what you get when you believe everything Louis Walsh says


1. Gloria Jones- Tainted Love
2. Chairmen Of The Board – Give Me Just A Little Moe Time
3. Supremes – Stop In The Name Of Love
4. Stevie Wonder – Uptight
5. Smokey Robinson – Tears Of A Clown

Meanwhile, ITV are broadcasting a 90 minute special tonight, titled ‘The Nation’s Favourite Bee Gees Song’, which is basically an admission that they have no original programming ideas, and are filling up 90 minutes with celebrities talking about the Bee Gees.

So, here is my definitive Bee Gees Top Five. There are no Disco songs. And rightly so.


1. You Win Again
2. For Whom The Bell Tolls
3. I’ve Gotta Get A Message To You
4. Massachusetts
5. This Is Where I Come In

Meanwhile, Blur are being awarded with ‘Outstanding Contribution To Music’ at the Brit Awards, only 12 years after Spice Girls.

To be honest, the day they gave the award to Spice Girls (SEVEN FUCKING YEARS BEFORE THEY GAVE IT TO OASIS!!!) totally devaulued it, but it gives me an excuse for a Blur Top Five


1. Country House
2. Tender
3. End Of A Century
4. Charmless Man
5. Beetlebum
