    I haven’t read the full thread, so forgive me if this song has already been mentioned.

    So, picture the scene; it’s the early 70’s, times are hard, there’s not much money around, but we are doing the best we can. A little gang of us are in a pub somewhere in Nottingham city centre, and I honestly can’t remember which one, all a bit fed up because we had little money, and no chance of picking up a girl, and we were trying to make our beer last a long time, when all of a sudden a really “out of place” song came on the juke box, as it was a 50’s song, and the fifties were definitely unfashionable at the time.

    Anyway, one of our gang immediately picked up hid near- empty bottle of Newcastle Brown and started using it as a microphone singing the main lyric, and instantly the rest of us fell in behind him and became his backing singers, doing all the “oohs” and “aahs” and the doo-wops.

    I think many people in that pub that night must have been feeling just as down as we were, because by the time we got to the chorus there must have been about 20 people singing along with us, and soon it seemed like the whole bar was joining in. When the song finished we got a big cheer and a round of applause, and it left everyone with a big smile on their faces in such a bleak time.

    This was the song, which has always remained a big favourite of mine, and always takes me back to that night.

    The record shown playing is Lemon Popsicle, the soundtrack album of the film of the same name.

    Me too. There is a website trying to sell it for £28. It doesn't even say it it's the Yellow vinyl version. They seem well above the price of other sellers.

    Here's a familiar tune with unfamiliar lyrics.
