It's Monday! And we won our pub quiz last night so we're well chuffed, but how will our good mood relate to what we learnt from this week's Top of the Pops? Let's find out shall we?:-
- This week Fearne was joined by Richard Hammond. Who? Other than a twat, of course.
- We really wish Robbie Williams would stop releasing records that may or may not be rather good and go back to releasing stuff that we could happily dismiss as rubbish without having to think about it.
- Mariah Carey was performing in front of a backdrop spelling out the word "Mimi", two syllables which are very important to her.
- Katie Melua declares that "There are 9 million bicycles in Beijing. That's a fact. That's a thing you can't deny", happily confusing the concepts of truth and approximation.
- The Melua herself looked rather bored during her performance. We're not surprised.
- We'd really quite like one of Franz Ferdinand's jackets.
- Despite seeming an impossibility, Stephen Fretwell may well be worse than James Blunt.
- Despite seeming an impossibility, Rachel Stevens only got to number 12 with the clear genius of I Said Never Again (But Here We Are).
- RETRO: John Lennon doing Instant Karma, recorded in a sock drawer, judging by the sound quality.
- Sugababes are still number one. Hooray!
- And, while we've already covered their lovely hair, we should also point out that they all wear lovely dresses as well. Especially Heidi.
