THE FRIDAY FIVE – 2.11.2012

1. Tegan and Sara – Closer
2. Everything Everything – Cough Cough
3. Jake Bugg – Two Fingers
4. Adele – Skyfall
5. Amy MacDonald – 4th Of July

As per, it’s a Top Five, based on the previous week’s X-Factor theme. Last week’s theme was Halloween, except they just sang songs in fancy dress. That was it, further proof that they are making it up as they go along.

Anyway, here’s a Halloween Top Five

FIVE, UM, HALLOWEEN RELATED SONGS

1. Ray Parker Jr – Ghostbusters
2. The Automatic – Monster
3. Tamsin West – Round The Twist
4. The Specials – Ghost Town*
5. Allstars – Things That Go Bump In The Night

*Yes, I know it’s a song that is a social commentary on early 80s Britian, and nothing to do with Halloween, but it’s got ‘Ghost’ in the title. Have you ever tried to think of five Halloween songs? Anyway, if X-Factor can make it up as they go along, why can’t I?

This week also saw the announcement that Bon Jovi are playing Slane.

If ever an excuse was needed for a Bon Jovi Top Five, this was it.

FIVE BON JOVI SONGS

1. Real Life
2. Keep The Faith
3. Everyday
4. Bad Medicine
5. You Give Love A Bad Name

The increase of needy twats infesting my timeline on Twitter asking celebs for RTs can only mean one thing, Movember is here.

So, I thought i’d commemorate this with a Top Five Moustached Men Of History

FIVE GREAT MOUSTACHED MEN OF HISTORY

1. Peter Rafferty
2. Freddie Mercury
3. Earl Hickey
4. Cesar Romero
5. Artur Jorge

NB : This chart was created by using a scientific formula called the Moustache Index, also known as The Mindex.

Freddie Mercury doesn’t score as many Mindex points because most of Queen’s best songs came when he didn’t have a moustache. Artur Jorge loses Mindex points for Switzerland being rubbish at Euro 96, wiping out a lot of his Mindex points for Porto winning the 1987 European Cup

Cesar Romero gains Mindex points for dedication to his tache, for refusing to shave it off when playing The Joker.

Adolf Hitler, has a low Mindex score on account of him having a crap moustache, and not being a nice person.
