  1. Bobby, Bobby. You’re a celebrity. You’re so rich you have more money than you know what to do with. So for the love of god, spend a few hundred pounds on teeth-whitening. Your chompers are practically the color of your skin.

  3. Funny thing is, or maybe not, I liked the Cure before most people had heard of them in the US, getting their cassettes by mail in the early 1980s, and then totally got disgusted by them by the end of the 1980s. To this day, I flip the channel instantly when they come on. This list is weak. No Talking Heads, no Smiths, no B-52s, no 10,000 Maniacs, etc., etc., but yes to Yoko Ono and Suzanne Vega?
