No idea why but I woke up with an overwhelming urge that a vast improvement would be this
This is destiny, it's fate, it's the matrix working in my favour.

Technically, I am out because it cropped up on FB and Dez, in explaining it to me, played the track in question. However,

1. I had never knowingly heard it before
2. I have no idea what it's called
3. I am pretty sure I wouldn't recognise it if I heard it again.

This post was sent from another dimension in which Mozart's Great C Minor Mass is currently being played. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is WAMageddon, and I am out every day, I am pleased to say.
Wow, when this was a hit, YOU were young!

Possibly a bit young. The only reason I ever heard pop music was because 3/4 of my older siblings played it (not so my oldest brother - he introduced me to Bach, Beethoven and Mozart and it was their stuff I fell in love with). After we all went our separate ways (1972 was the year I started college and left home) I never heard any more pop music on the radio or television but by that time I was needing a fix of a couple of hours' piano practice every day just to stand still - I was about grade 8 standard. When you spend that much time playing music for yourself you don't bother that much to listen to other people making it.

These days I do nearly all my listening when driving the car, but it is mostly whatever our next piece we are singing in the choir. I occasionally tune to R3 and hear modern stuff. Last Thursday, for example, they played "Whistle while you work!" because it was the 80th anniversary of its publication!
Homo sapiens - a creature so intelligent it knowingly sowed the seeds of its own destruction and did nothing about it.

Top of the Pops 2 - definitely a Wham festive single in it so best avoided.
