Sometimes you just have to roll with the surefire selections of the random jukebox, and today it picked Call The Shots by Girls Aloud; a defiant, pristine slice of pop perfection so admired by Pet Shop Boys that they snaffled the Xenomania production team for their next album, Yes.
Not at all coincidentally, Call The shots entered the UK singles chart ten years ago today. The 1st of December 2007 also happened to be my dad’s 60th birthday. And no, he doesn’t fancy Cheryl Whatverherlastnameistoday. Well, not as much as me anyway.
Happy birthday Dad!
