Yes! Make Sony more money by buying a Sony record instead of another Sony record! That's a fantastic way to protest!

The pop music charts are meaningless and have been for years. Who cares if one piece of over-promoted crap gets to number one rather than any other?

it's called fun, remember that? it's what we used to do instead of eing cynical all the time :p

I know I'm old, but when I were a lad, fun didn't involve spending money on a song I don't like to spite somebody I don't care about.

Then again, when I were a lad, it were all John Peel rather than Simon Cowell...

heh, amen to that. It amused me though :)

I just wish they'd chosen a different song. The really subversive thing to have done would have been to have got Cliff Richard back to the top again, just to annoy every radio station in the country.

I think it's a good idea even though Sony get the money anyway - and I wrote why here.

The funniest thing about this whole thing is that the RATM fans, or at least the anti-Cowell fans, seem to be touting the whole 'making music mean something' thing.

But did everyone just stop liking whatever music they decide is good? I didn't like Joe's song but RATM isn't my thing either. The meaning of music to me is provide me with a soundtrack to my life, to entertain me or to move me.

Why begrudge actual fans of that sort of music just because you don't like it? Sure it's nicer to see someone you're a fan of do well but at the end of the day I don't care whether a song got to number one, or number 100, not if I like it.

THAT'S the true meaning of music.
