"but it's hard to argue that it's the greatest UK number 1" - Tom isn't familiar with VT.

That was EXACTLY what I thought when I saw that. 

Then again whilst it's without doubt a brilliant song (INCOMMING) I think there are definitely argument it's not the greatest of all time even without VT.

It's a thread that blew up - thousands of retweets. Then he spots the omission of the word "not" in the opening tweet the next day. :crylaugh:

I’d say it probably is. Pure pop, probably Kylie ICGYOMH, but ghost town is a nailed on classic

Me and a few mates "sung" this at Karaoke in Lake Balaton one time  ..its safe to say nobody in the club had really heard this song before based on the baffled looks we received

we won the crowd over by performing the next song completely naked , but that's another story   

 

suffice to say , whever I hear Ghost town i kinda chuckle to myself  at the night out and how bad our rendition was   ..then get embarrassed when i remember what followed

I saw the omission of not, but in the same way people 'could care less' about something, either way it can be argued whether he thinks or doesn't think it's the best #1. This is VillaTalk after all :)

Maybe the other people in the club were just much too young to remember The Specials.

I never liked Ghost Town.

I'm not a music snob, hopefully my record of listening to any old shite shows through on VT

I just don't like that song. It's absolutely nowhere near the best Number 1 ever

I didn’t recognise Ghost Town from the title, just had a listen and yes I remember it now.

Rubbish though, I’m surprised it got to number 1.

I cannot think of any circumstance which involves you getting naked that actually makes things better.

I'm not a radio one Dj  i don't hang out in clubs with children :)    ..

 

We did a couple of 80's songs that they did seem to know , guess The Specials just never made it to that neck of the woods
