'This Charming Man': The greatest pop song of all time?
Quite possibly. It depends what day you catch me when asking that particular question.
Professional irritant Paul Morley tests my patience to the limit with his trendy sixth form English teacher deconstruction of the lyrics of 'This Charming Man' on his BBC4 programme, Pop! What is it good for? Simon Armitage is excused from my bile, as I love his prose - though I do wish he wouldn't go to the same barber as Stuart Maconie - and Mike Joyce? . . . well Mike Joyce has the best line of all in the clip.
Hat tip to Urban 75 for bringing the programme to my attention.
