Yeah NFLY is a good song. I like Strawberry Switchblade, The Shangri-Las, The Ronettes, The Like and TLC from that list. There are two GA songs and 'Call the Shots' at No 1 is a bit surprising.

That Golden Age ended in the 15th/16th Century though.

The Western Age of Enlightenment from which modern Western thought emerges starts in the mid 17th Century. Islam hasn't caught up yet.

I think that Grant Gee's 'Joy Division' documentary makes a great companion piece to Anton Corbijn's 'Control'. The imagery and tone are similar, if a little darker in 'Control'.
