I'm yet to meet anyone who doesn't like Hakan Hellstrom.

I am astounded that anyone could dislike Crowded House.

I am astounded that anyone could like Abba.

That's just insane, and it makes me wonder why you like Crowded House in the first place. Because the reasons for liking both bands (great melancholy, autumnal, poignant pop melodies) overlap hugely.

Not sure what Robert Sledge and the other fellow out of Ben Folds Five have done, Harry, but after going solo, Folds dropped a lot of the BFF shtick, and certainly the Revolution 9-esque experimentation.

Can you imagine BFF doing "The Luckiest" (which in my book is one of the mightiest love songs ever written)?

I'm going to bow to your impressive knowledge base on this one, Spearmint Rhino, 'cause:

great melancholy, autumnal, poignant pop melodies

is not a statement my (admittedly) limited exposure to Abba convinces me of.

I guess I've always considered Abba to be some sort of twee icon whose ode to whimsy felt somewhat trivial.

Tell me about the melancholy and I might be persuaded to give 'em another go.

Alright, listen to "Name Of The Game", "Knowing Me, Knowing You", "The Day Before You Came", just for starters. All songs that Neil Finn would be proud to have written (and I bet he'd say so, if you asked him).

Then you've got all the killer disco stuff: "Voulez Vous", "Gimme Gimme Gimme (A Man After Midnight)", "Dancing Queen"...

And so much more amazing stuff that I don't know where to go next. I mean, I can't believe I've found myself sitting here defending Abba. Their greatness is so self-evident it oughtn't be necessary. Andersson & Ulvaeus are geniuses, who bossed the 70s as much as Lennon & McCartney (for better or worse) bossed the 60s.

All bands are shit. To somebody.

As for Bowie, can't be arsed anymore, you all know my feelings. Doesn't matter. Maybe it iss just me after all.

Anyway The Ronettes. The Isley Brothers. Altered Images. Strawberry Switchblade. My Bloody Valentine. Belle and Sebastian.

Again.

You don't have to dig very far: Dancing Queen and SOS are two of their biggest hits and are miles from twee. Melancholy poignancy to burn.

Crowded House are Abba with the power off.

veto for Prince.

We're just going to be left with Blondie here. Which is fair enough.

Blimey. We've got a Prince-denier. That's up there with Irving.

What is Prince-denier? Something pretty sheer, I should imagine.
