Liverpool one

As part of the Capital of Culture jamboree, Liverpool acts are getting involved in a project which sees 40 Scouse-ish acts covering forty number one hits by other Scouse acts.

These are on board already:

China Crisis – Starry Eyed
Dave McCabe (The Zutons) - Bad To Me
Elvis Costello – Little Children
OMD - Whole Again
The Real Thing - Eleanor Rigby
Ian McCulloch - Imagine tbc
Scaffold - Re-written version of the 3 Lions
The Farm – Needles and Pins
The Christians - My Sweet Lord
Thea Gilmore feat Mike Cave - You Spin Me Right Round
Atomic Kitten - Anyone Who Had a Heart:
The Icicle Works - Woman
Shack - Day Tripper
The Real People - Hey Jude
Ray Quinn - You to Me Are Everything
Deacon Blue feat Connie Lush - tbc
Dr and the Medics - Two Tribes
Towers Of London – Get Back
Sonia Evans - She Loves You
Anthony Hannah - Relax

It's an interesting idea, although it does throw into relief how far The Beatles have been responsible for the record number of number ones held by the city. There's also some strange presences on the record already - although Donny Tourette tells the Echo he's "proud" of his roots, it's a bit of a stretch to claim the Towers of London as a Liverpool act, isn't it? Although not as far a stretch as Deacon bloody Blue.

Victoria Newton singing 'You'll Never Walk Alone', anyone?

Oh come on! Dundee and Liverpool are practically next door to each other...aren't they?

Isn't Thea Gilmore from Oxford? So basically the best way to get involved in this project to put "feat." before a Scouse name.

I once came up with an idea for a film set in an alternate universe in which Big in Japan and Crucial Three never split up. Certainly this list would be different. Well... maybe not.

Actually, it raises a point: where's Wylie?

haven't people been asking that for most of his career?

Actually now I'm thinking "Seven Minutes to Midnight" would've been perfect somewhere round here.
