Elvis at #1 is quite understandable but who the hell is Bobby Moore ???...Since the poll is british I would have thought of John Lennon instead maybe...

My Boy, My Boy - just to let you know Bobby Moore was the Captain of the England Football Club in 1966 when we won the World Cup! England fans still remember it very clearly! Personally, I would have preferred Lady Diana not to have appeared at all - I couldn't stand the woman. Of course, to see ELVIS at number one goes without saying!!!

Dear My Boy, My Boy - how dare you not know who Bobby Moore was! He was one of the greatest British footballers there has ever been. Could John Lennon have made that tackle against Pele in the 1970 World Cup? I don't think so...

Bobby Moore was no Babe Ruth

Babe Ruth was no George Best.

And neither one was no Joe Dimaggio.

The King is on top where he belong but still strange that John Lennon did not make the top 10! And to continue on the previous comments, George Best was the best...

Do England have a soccer team? Dont recall seeing them at the Euro 2008 soccer championships. Good to see Kurt Cobain there but King Henry viii?

Take it easy Harvey, besides the fact that Bobby Moore is basically totally unknown here in North America, could he had teamed up with Sir Paul to make it as the best songwriter duet in the 20th century ?...I don't think so either...

The greatest songwriting duo of the 20th century was Leiber & Stoller, not Lemon and McQuinty.
