  1. Ben Says:

    I prefer the Sugababes’ cover of “I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor” to any of the original material, which I find to be pretty bland. Even the stuff that should be stuff and fun comes off lame. (“Like a robot / From 1984” et cetera.) British rock music is so boring these days it’s ridiculous.

  2. Dave Says:

    Arctic Monkeys were overhyped last year for sure. Many seemed to have them higher on their lists. I say the album was just barely fun enough to squeak in at #20.
