Good on you for admitting it, though... :twisted:

"See My Baby Jive" by Wizzard.

Mind you, I'm not sure if that really counts. First, it was with a record token so not strictly paid for with my own money. Second, the record I'd really wanted (it was Christmas 1973) was "I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day".

But they're just minor quibbles. Aren't they? Oh.

Great choice Dave! I think Roy Wood was great for feel-good music and used to have a couple of The Move albums, but I don't seeem to have the Wizzard song on any 70s collection. 'She comes on to me like she really knows, ohoh, ohoh, ooooohoh' Hmm. Him wearing that weird makeup, too!

I do have Slade's Greatest Hits, which is full of good stomping music like I Wish it Could be Christmas. That's my favourite Christmas single... given me an idea for a new thread, but perhaps it should wait til December!

Cathy's Clown by the Everly Brothers - it came as a Christmas present with a nice little red and white record player. We must have played it hundreds of times! :?

First Single

Postby Vivien » Tue 19 Aug 2003 02:56 GMT

A Pepsi record that had Simon and Garfunkel on one side and I think the Tremeloes on the other. Guess it was the first of the "send in 7 million bottle tops and we will send you...." It was given to me , never had the pocket money for cola, I was only about 8. Could probably sing both sides word for word to this day!

The new doctor

Postby Squiffy » Fri 22 Aug 2003 07:29 GMT

The doctor, who had been seeing an 80-year-old woman for most of her
life, had finally retired. At her next checkup, the new doctor told her
to bring a list of all the medicines that had been prescribed for her.
As the young doctor was looking through these, his eyes grew wide as he
realized she had a prescription for birth control pills. "Mrs Smith, do
you realize these are BIRTH CONTROL pills?!?" "Yes, they help me sleep
at night."
"Mrs. Smith, I assure you there is absolutely NOTHING in these that
could possibly help you sleep!" She reached out and patted the young
Doctor's knee. "Yes, dear, I know that. But every morning, I grind one
up and mix it in the glass of orange juice that my 16 year old
granddaughter drinks......and believe me, it helps me sleep at night.

Mighty Quinn, Manfred Mann 7/6d


Come all without

You'll not see nothing like the mighty Quinn

You'll not see nothing like the mighty Quinn.

Oh yeah!!! I've always liked Dereck. :wink:

Funnily enough, Dave's not so keen on him. I have a few of his albums, the unplugged one was pretty good.

"I like to go just like the rest
I like my sugar sweet
But jumpin' queues and makin' haste
Just ain't my cup of meat"

Too right, spainboy :twisted: Bob Dylan really surpassed himself there...
