It's Monday! And we're all excited about the launch of the Edinburgh Fringe last week. Guess what, it's going to be another dry month updatewise here at TiaPL come August-time. But that's still ages away, so to keep you going, here's what we learnt from this week's Top of the Pops:-
- McFly are back with Please, Please, and judging by the air of irritability which hangs over him like the plethora of England flags hangs from the window of your local racist, it seems that no-one has yet managed to get round to giving Danny the slap he so clearly deserves.
- Despite what we'd been led to believe from the hype, it turns out that Lily Allen isn't the brightest hope in pop music, but is just a slightly more street Corrine Bailey Rae.
- And to be honest, even Zara Phillips qualifies as a slightly more street Corrine Bailey Rae.
- RETRO: 4-4-2 doing Come on England. We literally can't think of anything whatsoever to say about this, but should we ever have to see that clip again we'll have more than a few words to use, mainly those of the four letter variety.
- The Automatic are at number 4 with Monster, their tribute to their second favourite horror character based sitcom.
- Their favourite is Terry and June.
- The Goo Goo Dolls were performing Better Days. That's right, The Fucking Goo Goo Dolls.
- The Sugababes are sending out entirely the wrong message to stalkers on their new single, Follow Me Home.
- RETRO: Electric Light Orchestra doing Evil Woman. Don't let anyone ever tell you otherwise, ELO are ridiculously ace. And acely ridiculous, for that matter.
- According to The Kooks, She Moves in Her Own Way. Mainly in the direction of the off switch the instant The Kooks come on the telly.
- Keane reckon that it's all A Bad Dream. And the days where they wrote top quality pop tunage like Somewhere Only We Know are already seeming like little more than narcoleptic hallucinations.
- Nelly Furtado is at number one with Maneater. Yes! Yes!! Yes!!!
