Pointless @ 01:21 am

canadanne:
I quite enjoy the gameshow Pointless but I didn't see this one last month! Oh dear oh dear!



Can't believe not one of the first four contestants could name a U2 single, either classic or recent! They're not exactly an obscure band... and one guy even owns some U2 albums but couldn't remember any of their song titles?!

"Bob, you just made The Edge cry." LOL

(The survey results are equally surprising and depressing - only 19 out of 100 people thought of Beautiful Day, 18 mentioned WOWY, 6 for Vertigo and 3 for Pride?? Had most of them recently arrived from another planet or something?)

Bono has joked before that U2 is the biggest cult band in the world.

U2 is not as relevant as they once were.

Plus - people visiting gameshows...well, I'll keep my mouth shut :P

There was another U2 category on yesterday's show - Top 40 albums this time. One team couldn't name a single one, but their opponents were quite confident and said HTDAAB. The lowest scoring answer turned out to be No Line On The Horizon (only 5 people thought of it), which is ironic considering there were complaints about the BBC overpromoting that album!! Once again it was obvious that most of the people they surveyed weren't at all familiar with U2's stuff. The most popular answer by far was The Joshua Tree, and that only scored 36 out of 100. :/ This was the full list, the order of which is perhaps quite surprising:

The Joshua Tree - 36
Pop - 12
Rattle & Hum - 12
The Unforgettable Fire - 11
Zooropa - 11
Achtung Baby - 9
War - 9
HTDAAB - 8
ATYCLB - 6
October - 6
NLOTH - 5
