Sibil or Pythia

Well. What can I say?

I can say, "I told you so", for sure, right here in this blog.

In my post dated Jan 1st I published my own top 10 and at #1 was... Replay by Iyaz.

Now please bear in mind I actually wrote that in advance of when it was published after the Christmas chart came out.

When I first became aware of the track I couldn't actually get a UK download from I-tunes, they only had it on their US site. Why do they do that? The internet is World wide, that why it has www in it. I felt for sure it should be a hit tho and got myself a copy.

So back to my prescient post... In my reply to James and LGS on Jan 3rd I went further "My bet would be for 'Replay' or 'No other one' to hit the charts sometime in the next month or three."

Well, even I was surprised by the success of my prediction. Replay has now hit the #1 spot in the UK charts!!

Bounces around going "WoooHooo! I-yam-so-cle-verrr."

I wonder if the other track I thought was good and commercial 'No other one' will do half as well. Even if it doesn't I still like it and that I guess is the point.

Well Miss Moggs, on your recommendation, I actually downloaded this from iTunes and it is now on my iPod. If I could only find it easily there! :)

I have to say you are right about this www thing. More than half the links on your list are "blocked in your country", even the official Replay video, which annoys the heck out of me.

Good call on your part! Do you do lottery numbers?

Moggsy pirouettes and curtsies.

JMB/All, So sorry about the problem with the links. I think it all started after that fuss over copyright, so they suddenly started blocking some vids in some places. But you can't tell where they may be blocked for.

Maybe you could search for versions you can see?

G'day Jmb....It's been so long. I just realised this morning that I'd not blogged since August 2008! Wow! I guess I got out of the flow of it, but I hope to amend the situation!

I hope all is well with you.

Wow! That's probably longer than I have been blogging.
