My Guilty Pleasure

Q, the music magazine, has taken it upon itself to list the top 50 songs we don't publicly admit to loving. Here are the top 10.
1 Livin' Thing ELO
2 More Than A Feeling Boston
3 Don't Stop Movin' S Club 7
4 I'm Not in Love 10CC
5 Rock 'n' Roll Part 2 Gary Glitter
6 Cold As Ice Foreigner
7 Rebel Yell Billy Idol
8 Whatever You Want Status Quo
9 Baker Street Gerry Rafferty
10 I Will Survive Gloria Gaynor

For myself I own up to "Love Will Keep Us Together" as performed by Captain & Tennille or indeed by its composer Neil Sedaka on inumerable "variety" specials on BBC TV in the 70s.

I was always desitned to be unhip; something I realised early on in primary school when I did a project on the electric motor while Anthony Elliott studied the Rolling Stones.

In the same vein, I also fondly remember being denied access to the Wag club in Wardour street in its 1980s heyday when I wasn't even trying to get in. "You're not getting in here mate," yelled the doorman as I strolled past on my way somewhere else.
