  1. Hey, did you ever hear of a band called "The Pet Shop Boys"?

  2. I will give you SUCH a slap when we do meet for the first time! ;P

  3. #3 - No, Tiger. You are INcorrect. The most annoying song ever is Carl Douglas' 'Kung Fu Fighting' - actually from the same year. Just what IS it with 1974?
    A worldwide hit in the wake of the demise of Bruce Lee, talk about 'climbing on the bandwagon'!
    Cod-'Chinese' motifs with risible strained lyrics it's just beyond silliness and parody. Makes me cringe!

    Now, having got that off my chest, altogether now:-
    "We had joy. We had fun. We had....."

  4. Raybeard: I LOVE Kung Fu Fighting!!!!! And thank you! Now that other horrible song is in my head! AEIIIIIIII!!!!! ;)

  5. Tiger, I'll pretend you never said that! It just doesn't make sense when anyone who is (understandably) so keen on the PSB can also have such a lapse of taste. ;-)

    Now then, how does it go? - "Goodbye papa my trusted friend...."? No that can't be right. But I bet YOU know the lyrics perfectly! (Tee hee!)
