    And the 12 inch of Salt 'N' Peppa's "Push it".

    And "Ghostbusters" by Ray Parker Jnr.

    Legendary...

    Salt'n'Pepa's 'push it' was considered to be the naughtiest thing ever created when I was about 10....

    And the big band I used to play in did Ghostbusters reguarly - such fun!

    Can I have Jump by the Pointer sisters? And we built this city by starship?

    Ring my Bell is completely awesome - I'm not sure why anyone would be even slightly embarrassed! Am I missing something?

    Also, one of the Turning Japanese chaps is a client of mine :)

    I *think* that this was on the compilation 12 inch, "The Heat is On", which started with the song of the same name by Glen Frey (of the Eagles), and featured a cover version of "Stairway to Heaven" by The Far Corporation. Health warning: That cover version is not for the purists. :shock:

    "It stays down, Daddy."

    The circle of trust only encompasses so much, you are on the edge of the gentlemen....

    Summer of 69 = classic, no doubt about it.....


    Boys of Summer, Don Henley (to keep with the summer theme) is strong classic but tending towards guilt....
