Nope.
I changed it to Horace mate. I remembered that you can see Brad in the back in one scene. And without watching the vid isn't there a scene where no one is driving. I wanna go watch it now.

Such a simple vid yet really effective.
Yep Horace.
Is there a scene where no one is driving or dis I imagine that?
They go past a car that has no one in it.
Ahh ok mate cheers.

Still trying to figure out how the guardian had Pet Shop Boys ahead of Ghost Town in their greatest No.1 poll. Total wankology far as I'm concerned.

That was appalling. I was gonna start a thread on here about it but it was too depressing.

Nearly as bad Ashes to Ashes didnt even make the top 100. They'd both be in my top 3, though I'm admittedly biased towards that period.

Maybe naive but I'd expect better tbh, Dave Simpson, Michael Hann, Richard Williams etc - guardian does have a few decent music contributors. End of day it's just a list though, doing what lists invariably do!

Name two UK Top 5 singles where the title of the song only appears as the last words sung.

Most of these things are utter nonsense and half the time I'm convinced something other than what we all know genuinely to be the best track doesn't win. Just to make their list arguable and to be different.

Yeah totally get that. It's like that clash list that was posted a while back, all fine and normal till Hitsville UK was top 3 or something, to provide the "talking point" and people always get reeled in. Well, i do anyway! It's cheap, renewable copy too.

Virginia Plain, Roxy Music and Made of Stone, Stone Roses both have title only sung as last words. I can't take full credit though, I already knew about Virginia Plain but it was a phone in on last week's RadMac show connecting the 3 tracks (the other being Up The Junction).

The key to the question is "Top 5" I don't think "Made of Stone" made the Top 5. But "Viriginia Plain" sounds correct to me.

Yep... don't know if there are others (doesn't sound like it) but VP and UTJ were the ones i was thinking of.

Good work H and AA (and everyone else who knew but due to timings couldn't get there first)
