NO, NO, IT SHOULDN'T: No Rock intends to spend much of the next three or four weeks in a tight-fitting yellow outfit bringing justice to people who voted in the VH1 poll which reckons that Angels by Robbie Williams is the best song that never made it to number one. The poll seems also to have been slightly hijacked - Savage Garden's Truly Madly Deeply is at number two, seemingly wandering in from a poll for songs that nobody could whistle if their lives depended on it, and Aerosmith are at number three with I Don't Want To Miss A Thing, which, admittedly, didn't make number one but hardly seems to have been a victim of a miscarriage of justice by its failure. Ultravox's Vienna is at four; Ray of Light at five. Although we think that it's fitting Madonna didn't make the top spot with that - surely a message from the British public that she couldn't take our support for granted any more? That the rather brilliant ROL wasn't deemed worthy of the top spot should have sent her back to try even harder; instead, it seems to have persuaded her not to bother that much any more.

We're not even sure how Angels is judged to have missed out on a number one slot - didn't it also miss out on two and three?
