"Top 10 albums"

Also via The Fix, an online poll for the top 10 albums of all time. It appears to be mostly voted for by angsty teenagers, judging by the selection of alternative there is there, and the fact that The Cure are seriously overrepresented in the top 100. Anyway, of my votes, only 1 got in the top 100 (The Smiths' The Queen Is Dead), or indeed the top 1000 (though Lush's Split and New Order's Power, Corruption and Lies are just under the top 1000. (My #1 choice, The Field Mice's Where'd You Learn To Kiss That Way? is in the 1,690th place.)

Saw that. A couple of Smashing Pumpkins albums in the top ten, which again accords with the angsty teen demographic. That's seriously scary. It's like the people who were into the Doors and the Lost Boys soundtrack (yeah, ugh is correct) when I was in high school.

Wouldn't Doors fans be the kids with the really heavy dope habits?

Well, that was about the time that Doors movie came out. I think I've got a drawing of the Doors logo on my Yr 12 folder with an extra 'k'. I'll have to drag that out and scan the whole outside, I think.

Good to see that there are a few other Pogues and Shane McGowan fans out there.
