    Default News items that it's not worth starting another thread for...

    You've got a news item that doesn't really fit into any other thread but don't want to start another thread, then just bung it in here.

    Any of our older viewers remember a novelty tune by Meri Wilson called 'Telephone Man'? (recorded in 1977)

    If I remember correctly it reached number 6 in the charts.

    Yep. I remember.

    There were other songs based on telephone calls, can't remember who they were all by though:

    5705
    Hello this is Joanie
    Telephone line - ELO
    Clouds across the moon
    Hanging on the telephone - Blondie

    Any others?

    Your palms are holding her neck and thumbs are at her ears regulating the speed of her head as she swallows and then sucks up your machinery. She is topping up your engine oil for the cross-country coming up. Your RPM is hitting a new high. To wait any longer would be to lose prime time... She picks up a Bugatti's momentum. You want her more at a Volkswagen's steady trot. Squeeze the maximum mileage out of your gallon of gas. But she's eating up the road with all cylinders blazing.

    Well, the main reason I posted this is because I stumbled across (purely by accident) a follow up version recorded by Meri back in 1999 called 'The Internet Man'

    If you liked the Telephone Man, you'll like the Internet Man too.

    I did some research on Meri, turns out she passed away a few years ago.

    Aye, there's a few others she did too, such as "Peter the meter reader" and "Dick the Dj"

    Default News items that it's not worth starting another thread for...

    From the „What A Bunch Of Lads“ department:



    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    „Don't forget you're alive. 'Cause sometimes when you walk around the city and you're in a bad mood, you can think, hey, wait a minute, we're alive! We don't know what the next second will bring and what a fantastic thing this is. This can get easily forgotten in the routine of life, and that's something I'm trying to bring to my attention at all times. Don't forget you're alive. We're not dead, you know. This is the greatest thing.”

    — Joe Strummer
