Yes, Dear Reader. We enjoy those ‘in depth’ interviews as much as anyone else. But – BUT – we also enjoy the lighter side of music, too. We simply cannot go on any longer without knowing that Courting’s Sean Murphy-O’Neill clearly spends at least 14% of his life thinking about Girls Aloud, or members of Girls Aloud. Here’s some off-topic questions to find out ‘more’.
