Pete Waterman Is Doing Eurovision, But Here's How He Did My iPod

Yesterday it was announced that Pete Waterman will write and produce this year's U.K. entry for the Eurovision Song Contest (by himself?). This of course prompted me to play The Sheilas —and then start hammering nails into my eardrum.

But seriously, this is the greatest thing to happen to Eurovision since Scooch's epic fail in 2007! I zipped through to see what the ten most-played songs on the iPod D'luv are that Pete Waterman had a hand in—even if he was just eating a donut and watching porn three doors down the hallway while the song was being recorded by Mike Stock.

Here's how it shook out:

1. "Take Me To Your Heart" - Rick Astley (39 plays)
2. "Say I'm Your Number One" - Princess (37)
3. "Someone Like You" - Pop! (31)
4. "Together Forever" - Rick Astley (31)
5. "Back To You" - Steps (29)
6. "Never Gonna Give You Up" - Rick Astley (26)
7. "Heartbeat" - Steps (23)
8. "You Think You're A Man" - Divine (22)
9. "Serious" - Pop! (22)
10. "One For Sorrow" - Steps (22)

And if you can't replicate the pop genius of those chestnuts, Pete, at least aim for something as classy as this jam:
