The time that Britpop finally came off the rails, perhaps. The time that it (and they) got co-opted and absorbed into its own bastard offspring, the nauseatingly jingoistic Cool Britannia, smooching...

I didn't like "Like a Virgin" when it came out, and I still don't.

It's horribly underproduced and lifeless. And it's really just not that good or catchy a song at all.

I never got why it seemed to...

Top Gear deserves to be shot at ultra, ultra, ultra widescreen.... specifically 1920:1.

You mean like "Warning! The content of this programme is a load of old b*****ks"?

That sounds plausible. :D

Great track, I agree.

One thing I always noticed is that considering it's a homage of sorts to the north of *England* (ending with "Jerusalem"- i.e. about the closest thing there is to a...

Not really- at least, not the music we're discussing. CDs and music are much cheaper than they used to be, even before you allow for inflation.

Mid-to-late-nineties CD singles (one song and three...

Yeah.... it's not awful, but it's *exactly* what you'd expect from them and not good enough to overcome that and still sound fresh in the way that "Omen" did. I suspect that hardcore fans will like...

I tried it out; I think I must have absorbed some of the chemicals through my skin because they affected my mind and turned me into a firestarter, twisted firestarter (hey hey hey). ;-)

Who's shopping at all these pop-up "gift" shops?

Don't know what it's like where you live, but in conjunction with the general decline of the High Street and City Centres, there have been a lot of "pop up" shops filling the empty units.

Indeed it wouldn't. Mainly because you just pulled that strawman out of your arse so you'd have something to feel indignant about. ;-)
