THE FRIDAY FIVE – 18.11.2011

1. Foster The People – Pumped Up Kicks
2. Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds – I Wanna Live In A Dream (In My Record Machine)
3. The Pipettes – Boo Shuffle
4. Coldplay – Paradise
5. Saw Doctors ft Petula Clark – Downtown

So, in keeping with the X-Factor themed chart, this week’s theme was Queen vs Lady Gaga. Further proof that I think they just make up the themes as they go along.

What it also meant, was that I had to think of five Lady Gaga songs I like. Not easy.

Having already done a Queen chart in September for Freddie Mercury’s 65th birthday, I had to think up five new songs. So here goes …..

FIVE LADY GAGA SONGS

1. Born This Way
2. Alejandro
3. Judas
4. Bad Romance
5. Just Dance

FIVE QUEEN SONGS

1. Bicycle Race
2. The Miracle
3. It’s A Hard Life
4. Now I’m Here
5. Somebody To Love

Meanwhile, this week has seen the 20th anniversary of the release of Achtung Baby, so, here’s a U2 top five for you.

The current edition of Q has a free album of covers of songs from Achtung Baby. If you don’t buy Q, try and download the Jacques Lu Cont remix of ‘Even Better Than The Real Thing’ and/or The Killers version of ‘Ultra Violet’, as it’s not a very good tribute album

FIVE U2 SONGS

1. The Fly
2. Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me
3. Night And Day
4. Hallalujah Here She Comes
5. Wild Honey
