Anyone else read Tom Ewing's Popular blog on Freaky Trigger? I discovered it over a year ago but I've had a pretty big addiction to it over the year.

Basically, since the start of the blog in 2003, he's reviewed every UK number 1 single ever - typically extensively - as well as rating them out of 10. Part of the fun is reading the comments too, and adding to them (as I have been doing recently). He's currently in 2002, having just written about Ronan Keating's decisively uninspired If Tomorrow Never Comes.

:) That's a lot to get through. Though I think a lot of it will be an interesting read.

I am OBSESSED with Popular

But as of recently I've been adding my own comments, which you can find in the threads of Freak Like Me (April 2002) onwards (although I did have a few before that, just not in every thread)

Popular returned today after a lengthy break with a less than savoury review
