    Simon Cowell

    They aren't the issue per se - Cowell's stuff isn't about talent anymore, it's about making Simon Cowell richer. Talent be damned.

    The Big Book of DeathList's Great mistakes

    Dropping General Jaruzelski a few years ago was inexplicable - he went the following year. It was a miracle he'd made it that far, was perma hospitalised and had impending death written all over him.

    Bugger me, he looks like Mr Tumble!

    UK Singles Chart

    As an aside, I came across this site via the Popbitch weekly email. It's charting how music fades from memory (and, by extension, which newer music is known amongst the generations above). Say when you were born, pick a decade and listen to 10 snippets of music, and click on how much you recognise the song from 4 options. You can take as many goes as you want and test yourself from the 60's to 2000's. It's Billboard 100 stuff so US-centric, but plenty of fun and it's interesting to see just how much awful shit you know and recognise, whether you like it or not. https://pudding.cool/2020/04/music-challenge/

    And 'front' they did, having just watched this! A quick note of ongoing thanks for putting this together, I'm having a great time delving into a load of stuff that's either new to me or is a lovely rediscovery from my early teenage years with Classic Gold on the background radio as I fell asleep. Top Deathlisting.

    Dead Pop Stars

    Did the vocals for my favourite Primal Scream track, many happy memories from Aberystwyth Uni back in 1998 when this was a regular on my stereo and I had a reputation for being 'Mr Indie'. Never quite converted the unwashed masses at IndieSoc to it though. Unlike Northside 56, jesus that's no age now is it.

    Genuinely thought she'd hang on for at least another year. RIP, trailblazer!

    What a fuckin state, looks like an oompa loopmpah doing a quasimodo impression. Who survives longest - Pele, Maradona or Gazza?

    Sad to see him go. Will watch Alien later! Ash to ashes.

    4. Vera Lynn

    She was conspicuously absent doing any live broadcast interviews during VE Day celebrations despite promises beforehand. I thought then she must be closer to the exit door than we'd imagined (I assumed she'd go on for at least another year before that)

    Tony Slattery

    Watched it last night. His voice has completely changed (he sounds almost Oxfordshire farmer), he looks 70 and stutters a fair bit. He also has quite the thousand yard stare at times. Still necking the booze but the programme made out at the end that he's successfully reducing his consumption. A few years ago he went cold turkey and had a withdrawal seizure, which may go some way to explaining the sentence above. It's desperately sad. His very long-term partner has the pateince of a saint, can't be easy to live with. I'm guessing all the money TS made in the late 80's and early 90's disappeared up his bugle, as they live in what looks like a fairly small rented house. You'd assume he'd have had 7 figures coming in back then, he was never off the telly. It's worth a watch.
