Rick Wright is dead.

I could cry. Fuck.

I had a theory this morning whilst driving to work and listening to the radio. It's quite simple:

1) All great bands or music artists, no matter how talented, have had one truly pants [1] song, and...

2) That pants [1] song is their most popular song. [2]


In evidence, off the top of my head, I offer:

- The Cure, "Friday, I'm In Love"
- Bjork, "It's So Quiet"
- Cake, "I Will Survive"

And so on. So, over to you. What truly pants [1] song has your favourite band done, which has inexplicably been their most popular?

[1] "pants" in the UK vernacular, meaning lame, naff or awful
[2] There's often a third rule - the band refuses to perform the song at their live performances, because they hate it so much.

Tagged by [livejournal.com profile] amandapillar... I can't remember the last time anyone tagged me for one of these, so I suppose I'll have to play along. :)

"List seven songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they’re not any good, but they must be songs you’re really enjoying now, shaping your springwinter. Post these instructions in your blog along with your 7 songs. Then tag 7 other people to see what they’re listening to."

Spamalot was a hoot and a holler. Especially as we'd bought the cheapest balcony seats we could get (15 quid), but because the house wasn't fully booked, they closed the balcony and moved us into the stalls, so we ended up nine rows from the front with a totally unimpeded view of the stage. Awesome!

We laughed. We sung. We laughed some more. We bought the t-shirt. Fun!

The one disappointment is that Tim Curry was no longer playing Arthur, instead it was played by Simon Russell Beale, who was very good, but I was hankerin' for a bit of Curry, y'know?

In further news, thanks for the heads-up, [livejournal.com profile] zarabee, I opened the blinds this morning and saw London covered in snow! The first time since we've been here!
