Barely poptastic

I got this meme from the marvellous , who got it from – they’re to blame. I don’t actually know many of these songs. Of those I do know, a good proportion are the worse kind of tat (Robson and Jerome? Jennifer Rush? Billy Joel?). Dammit, Is got Dr and the Medics covering Norman Greenbaum, UB40 covering an Elvis number, Adam Ant, the Sex Pistols and the Timelords!

Pah. At least I’ve got David Bowie, the Culture Club and a Vic Reeves novelty record. And she did get Wings, more sodding Robson and Jerome, and Jason Donovan
