Further to my previous post, I’m now trying to work out whether it’s worthwhile trying to influence the Virgin Top 500 next year. I’ve just been listening to the Top 10, and inbetween my bursts of extreme doubt about whether some people should be allowed to listen to music, I’m wavering between the opinion that a poll that can be topped by Snow Patrol needs to be subverted and the belief that even if we were successful, would anyone notice.

Indeed, has it been done already? I find myself gravitating towards that opinion, just because otherwise one has to believe that there are a substantial number of people in this country who believe that Snow Patrol, Razorlight and The Killers have produced some of the best songs of all time.
