    Electric Avenue... eddy grant.

    Perhaps the first actually dreadful mention since Dave Mathews :)

    CJ, are you confusing Supertramp with ELO? It's easily done... Mr Blue Sky is absolutely in my top ten favourite songs ever. "Goodbye Stranger" by the 'Tramp (as I imaginesome losers call them) is also up there.

  • 'A-ha - take on me' and 'Tainted Love - soft cell' are both legitimate weapons of awesomeness.
