Which theme tune to the ITV Chart Show was better?
Did you watch the ITV Chart Show at the time?
Duh, I'm not British, what do you think?
If I might be so bold as to enquire, in which year were you born?
Can you feel the love tonight?
Forget about The Chart Show, what about Top Of The Pops - the self-same situation depends on the Yellow Pearl, isn't it, wasn't it?
Forget about The Chart Show, what about American Bandsta... oh
Forget about The Chart Show, what about Saint and Greavesie?
Forget about The Chart Show, what about... no, I've forgotten
I used to sway and tilt with the 1990 opening sequence
Doesn't the 1992 opening sequence contravene ITC sponsorship regulations?
Hang on, isn't Question One missing something?
Current Mood: nostalgic
Current Music: You can probably guess
Currently I'm watching the Corus chess tournament on the Internet Chess Club at the moment; I'm nowhere near expert enough to follow the games myself, but the annotation that observers provide really helps. Mickey Adams is a pawn down in a RPP-RP ending; apparently it's a draw in theory but white has practical chances. It was RBPP-RBP earlier but apparently taking off the bishops simplifies it considerably for black. Fingers crossed...
There's also a fascinating endgame in Svidler-Anand - Svidler has Q and 5 pawns, Anand Q and 4. They're just about into the seventh and final hour; Anand has about 15 minutes less, but is known as a fine rapid player. This one could go the distance and be a real bruiser.
