Playground hits

So Frankee's F.U.R.B. (F U Right Back) is number one for a second week. If it hangs in there on Sunday it'll equal its identically-tuned predecessor, Eamon's F**k It (I Don't Want You Back) stay at the top.

The likes of the Daily Mail have focussed on counting the expletives, but I originally disliked the songs for another reason: I don't want to be drawn in to a childish lover's spat, whether real or manufactured. Don't they have anything more interesting to sing about?

Then again, we have companies slagging each other off through press releases, film-makers and studios tossing "he-said, she-said" mud around, and flour bombs apparently becoming a legitimate way of projecting your views.

Maybe Eamon and Frankee are more relevant than I thought.
