So I got asked to offer my opinion on this matter for the French Vice - what song a guy should send me if he was secretly in love with me but never told me - and you can read the whole thing here.

J'ai écrit:

Del Shannon - Runaway
Emma Lektrogirl : " J'ai entendu cette chanson pour la première fois alors que j'étais encore petite fille, et elle a provoqué des trucs qui s'appelaient "le désir", "la luxure" et "un chagrin d'amour". C'était la première fois que je ressentais ces émotions d'adultes, et ça m'a donné envie de briser des coeurs à mon tour - tellement fort que ma victime se saisirait de sa guitare pour chanter des trucs sur moi. Si quelqu'un m'envoyait cette chanson, je saurais qu'il m'appartient à la vie à la mort. Maintenant que je me relis, je ne sais pas vraiment si c'est très correct de vous raconter l'histoire d'une petite fille qui a commencé à mouiller à l'âge de 6 ans... Alors du coup, je vais plutôt choisir ce morceau là :

Kap Bambino - New Breath
Envoyez lui cette chanson si vous voulez la baiser parce qu'elle vous fait vous sentir vivant. Avec Kap Bambino, vous lui faîtes savoir qu'après ça, votre vie ne sera plus jamais la même.

Other contributors offered: Foo Fighters - Walking after you, Elton John - This Is Your Song, R.Kelly - You Remind Me Of My Jeep, Motörhead & Girlschool - Please Don't Touch, Frank Sinatra - My Funny Valentine, X-RAY SPEX - Germ Free Adolescent, The Moldy Peaches - Anyone Else But You, Ride - Drive Blind, 10cc - The things we do for love.

The piece was put together after the guys at VICE France did this thing which they thought were songs that they should send girls. The selection is equally mismatched and horrible.

I'm in Heathrow terminal 3 waiting for my gate to get called. Boring. It's late and already all the flights for tomorrow morning are on the screens. What morning am I gonna be in when I get half way there... I had a sick feeling of middle age creeping on me when I caught myself checking out the Armarni sheer lipstick in the duty free section while wearing a cardigan from Toast. Though I haven't quite tipped myself over the edge when I realised how much I was hating the Julie London Christmas carols getting played. There are a lot of Muzzies around too btw.

Speaking of Christmas, to humour myself I was thinking of getting Mum the Sarah Jessica Parker perfume duty free but it would kill her. It would also kill me to buy a product with such horrible ads endorsed by such a horror head. Dior has the amazing Christmas bauble lipgloss again. I'm saving the duty free spending to Singapore though just for something to do.

God - I feel like I've typed for ages on my phone but it was just a couple of minutes. If only my life was more exciting like the guys closing up TGI Friday's - they are having a burpiong competition. i'm just sitting here watching a clock. I should have brought my DS to play Sudoko or something...
