KNEE DEEP IN THE HOOPLA – An apt moment in this week's Love Monkey that most pop nerds'll doubtless relate to: in it, Tom Cavanagh's lovestruck A&R man is told his current obsession's Top Five Songs. First four offerings meet with his approval (when she mentions Dylan's "Visions of Johanna," he happily mentally notes that it's not an overplayed Dylan song). But when Julia gets to her fifth, it turns out to be Jefferson Starship's execrable "We Built This City." Which just goes to show that no matter how in tune you may feel you are with the Object of Your Attraction, there'll always be at least one song or group where you'll significantly diverge . . .
Sharp use of the Magic Numbers' "Morning Eleven" in the ice-skating scene, incidentally.
