Channel 4 is preparing a Top 100 No.1s Of All Time show, which has been fairly obviously rigged, in that on the website at least you only get to vote from a shortlist of 105. I have a strong and sentimental belief in the magic of the No.1 spot, but how difficult would it have been to have a searchable list of all 1,000 or so UK No.1s available, and a shopping-basket selection method? For example, I’d have very much liked to vote for Eminem, the best No.1 so far this year, because I think the votes should reflect the now-ness of hit records, not just be another opportunity for Lennon and Queen to get their weary props.
