Thanks: took me a while to spot the bass player!

In High School I dated a very sweet and good looking girl who had absolutely no taste in music. She listened to the crappiest of the most popular music and even years after they fell out of favor she still had her bedroom decorated with New Kids on the Block posters, articles, and merchandise. Of course I tried to introduce her to XTC. She told me she had never heard of them but when I played Mayor of Simpleton, she remembered, she had heard the song, it had been featured on the local Top 40 station's "like it or hate it" call in show (I think they called it "Smash it or Trash it" or something like that- I remember that the name didn't make sense as both options seemed to infer it was crap)-- she hated it, she called in to say so, told me it was trashed... then she tried to say she could see it wasn't so bad now...

That relationship didn't last.

But it gave me some insight on the mindset of the masses. Melody and lyrics be damned, give us Paula Abdul. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/dry.gif)


Now, this is a long time ago and I've not seen Spazz here for a long time, but do you not think it might have been "Smash Hit or Trash it" which does make sense?

I remember Smash Hits. White socks were all the rage back then.
