This list of chart entries here proves that there's so much more to the Lightning Seeds than that "3 Lions" song, which I'm tired of. They've made some great songs and albums, and in my opinion Ian Broudie is underrated as a songwriter.

If this is the radio, don't they just play the same song most of the time? Indeed, there is a lot more variety to the charts than gets left on radio in the longer run it seems. As well as the Lightning Seeds (but get sick of Three Lions and prefer the 98 remix involving France), I usually like the unplaylisted side of the Top 40 - late 1990s/early 2000s - generally the lowest new entries, so not really pop music after all even though they hit the pop charts - plus lots of songs that didn't get Top 40 it seems from late 1980s to mid 2000s - gives a very different perspective of what the Top 40 is.

It just seems I edit out a lot of the radio records that were in the charts for weeks on end - the true pop music being Top 10 - and instead the songs it turns out I like mostly were in the Top 40 for one or two weeks only or didn't pop their head above no 40 for one classic hit daytime radio play, once and never again - always on the Top 40 show on Sunday afternoon. I liked, and still do, the low new entries, bought by a few thousand DJs to play in clubs, and by the late 1990s I was disliking the radio records surrounding them that had been on the charts for weeks.

So, nothing on the radio all week daytime and then a 'forced' airing of Tilt, Tomski, Electrique Boutique, Heliotropic, Slusnik Luna, Freefall, Sundance pop chart music early (early being the clue maybe!) on a late Sunday afternoon. Just forget Christina Aguilera, Robbie Williams (wrong version), anything else I can't remember that would have been on the charts for ages that I never heard since I no longer tuned into the radio except just the new entries that I liked, none of them playlisted, each week.
