THE FRIDAY FIVE – 9.11.2012

1. Tegan and Sara – Closer
2. Coldplay – Hurts Like Heaven
3. Pink – Try
4. Rihanna – Diamond
5. Katie and the Carnival – Dinosaurs

As per usual at this time of year, a Top five based on the previous wee’s X-Factor theme. Last week’s theme was ‘Number Ones’, another generic and open ended theme where they make it up as they go along.

I’ve read the 1999, 2001 and 2003 Guinness Book Of British Hit Singles from cover to cover, and some songs sung weren’t UK Number Ones. But, they didn’t specify what country though, to be fair.

So, here’s five UK Number One singles


1. Falco – Rock Me Amadeus
2. Nena – 99 Red Balloons
3. Tatu – All the Things She Said
4. Status Quo ft Manchester United FC – Come On You Reds
5. Babylon Zoo – Spaceman

Meanwhile, last Friday, BBC Four had a night dedicated to Paul Weller, once again, proving thay BBC Four is worth the licence fee along. I love that channel (as much as I love Paul Weller)

So, to commemorate, here’s five Paul Weller solo songs


1. Sunflower
2. Changinman
3. Mermaids
4. From The Floorboards Up
5. Instant Karme
