"Top Of The Pops" as written by and Raymond Douglas Davies....
I've just come in at Number twenty five
I'm oh so happy, so glad to be alive
And everybody says it's going to get to the top
Life is so easy when your record's hot.
Go tell my mamma and my sister too
To press my trousers and polish my shoes
I might even end up a rock-and-roll god
It might turn into a steady job.
And my agent said to me: "Son, I always told you so."
Now my record's number eleven on the BBC
But number seven on the N.M.E.
Not the Melody Maker want to interview me
And ask my view on politics and theories on religion.
Now my record's up to number three
And a woman recognized me and started to scream
This all seems like a crazy dream
I've been invited to a dinner with a prominent queen
And now I've got friends that I never knew I had before.
It's strange how people want you when you record's high
Cause when it drops down they just pass you by
Now my agent just called me and said it me:
"Son your record's just got to Number One."

    General CommentOddly enough, the Smithereens also have a song called TOP OF THE POPS and there's no mistaking the Kinks influence on them.

    General CommentWe once had a brilliant weekly program called Top of The Pops that would be shown every Thursday night on the BBC. Apart from being tainted by inadvertently having the odd pedophile as a presenter, was a great cross section of all that was pop and gave a lot of up and coming artists there first proper taste of fame.

    Now unfortunately, we have a plethora of bland reality pop shows, hosted by Arseholes that make hay out of the exploitation of pop wannabees for the gratification of a gladiatorial TV viewing public. Reducing Pop to the level of a glorified Victorian style freak show for the masses.
