    Not so much a guilty pleasure, but a little annoyance.

    I had parents evening the other day, sat and talked to 27 sets of parents.

    What was going round my head?

    That new song by Mika.

    Thankfully it has now gone, I can't remember it at all.

    Grrr

    I listen to Radio 4 constantly. I'm listening to it now. I listen to it to help me sleep. My alarm plays it in the morning.

    I'm only 22.

    Great song, but Flood was a censored album.

    Also, just noticed your Roachford comment; I LOVED that album, but I suspect it hasn't aged well....
