A year-long survey by the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester has revealed the top 10 most persistent earworms -- with the Spice Girls topping the list.
Hey Hoopers! Are you ready for this week’s Top Ten List? Every Saturday we countdown the posts of the week that received the highest response from our readers and share them with you a second time, so those of you who were in too much of a spin of your own this week stay in the hoop loop. Previously we’ve mixed the list up, varying it between articles and videos and photos and such, but this week we start serving the count straight, starting with #10 and working our way up to our #1 post of the week. So here’s what was hot and happening in Hoopville this week:
Forget all those other top ten lists everyone is compiling all over the place — I was recently in a thrift shop and I spotted a couple of old issues of Trouser Press, the classic rock and roll magazine that ceased publication in 1984. I was a huge fan of this magazine back in the day as it was one of the only magazines around that focussed on the punk and new wave scene. The ten best list below is from February 1981 and it’s a damn fine list: half of these albums are stone cold classics and the rest are merely excellent.
Wow, this is a pretty well-done compilation. I’m not very surprised by the results.
And I would be surprised if Bleach and Naruto were in multiple top lists. For one, they may be mainstream, but they’re just not good. They’ve lasted too long and the things going on are either repetitive or stupid. Or both. And most people who have been around long enough to make top anime of the decade lists know that there are much much better animes out there. (Typed this through my phone, so sorry if any of it came out oddly.)
