Hard Rocking MPs...

An amusing, if unsourced, survey of sorts on the BBC site , wherein sundry MPs nominate their favourite albums. Quite a few Led Zeppelin fans and I'm not even remotely surprised that Tessa Jowell like the Beatles. Showing his usual insight, Mark Oaten (please - if only for your wife's sake will you just SHUT UP) reckons of the Human League's 'Dare' 'Every track is a killer, not a filler'. Uh-huh.

This sort of thing is almost as toe-curlingly awful as the Desert Island discs politicians get their spin doctors to choose for them. Ian McCulloch of Echo & the Bunnymen once explained that they didn't do political songs as if he had anything insightful or new to say on such things he'd be a politician, and perhaps our MPs could draw a similar conclusion about their thoughts on music.

Just this once, I'll lower the tone still further:

Robert Plant's 'Big Log'.

And Edwyn 'Orange Juice' Collins has recorded something called 'The Coffee Table Song'. Yes, really.
