Given that Slade, Wizzard and the Pogues are still giving the latest manufactured bands a serious run for their money in the charts, we were going to blog the Bowie, celebrate the Slade (and the Sweet) and turn on to T Rex.
But then the inimitable Lady Starduzt went and beat us to it and we absolutely share her sentiments.
"The fact that these songs have kept their popularity for the best part of 40 years shows that each and every generation are appreciating the halycon days of glitz and glam but this year there has been a noticeable increase in popularity."
As if we needed convincing: So here it is, Merry Christmas!
P.S. Don't forget the boob tubes.
