[music] sgt. pepper's still tops

Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band has been voted Britain's favourite No.1 album. With more than 200,000 votes cast, only 201 separated The Beatles' 1967 hit from Michael Jackson's Thriller in second place. The nationwide survey of music fans was commissioned by BBC Radio to mark the 50th anniversary of the official UK album chart. U2's Joshua Tree was third, with Rumours by Fleetwood Mac taking fourth place. Interesting - I always thought Abbey Road was much better and Thriller was vastly over-rated. Tastes differ.
