  • I'm just waiting for a lone david hasselhoff fan to stick their head above the parapet!

    Come on where are ya?

    I think one just did.

    Come on, Jash, don't be shy. We're all friends here. Confession is good for the soul and all that. Let everyone know that YOU'VE GOT A MAN-CRUSH ON THE 'HOFF!
    Swim. Bike. Run. Yeah. That's what I used to do.

    Ask your Dad.

    I fu<king loved that song as a kid...

    Cameo - Word up... yes

    Korn do a wicked version of Word up....

    is that from Life is Peachy? used to like the nu-metal stuff.. I still like Union Underground's Turn me on Mr Dead Man... that's a guilty pleasure I guess

    I think I have it on an EP with a cover of Another Brick in the Wall.... not sure if it's also on an album...

    I think a band called Gun covered it too - in fact they may have written it....?!

    Saw the Sultans in Brighton way back - they were fantastic - Casual Sex in the Cineplex was the album right?

    Rolf Harris's "Sunarise" is an old favourite

    I don't like all that "Bring the boys home" rubbish - I think I'd go for Wish you were here.....or one of the live albums.

    Sultans - ooh - that struck a chord (see what I did there?)

    Brothers in Arms. Funereal, but I confess I like it. Brings to mind an Episode of Miami Vice (wooahh! There goes another one!) that featured it.

    And I've even tried to buy the onanistic 15 minute Telegraph Road on iTunes. But haven't, than the Lord.

    That's only one very short song though... One chorus really, after 'does anybody here remember vera lynn'...

    Tears of a clown - Smokey Robinson and the Miracles......cheesey!

    Or

    Teach me Tiger by April Stevens - one of my favourites!

    One of the best albums of all time. I have "Alchemy: Dire Straits Live" looking right at me. Telegraph Road live is fan-tastic. It follows "Tunnel of Love", and the guitar solo on the extended "Sultans of Swing" is sheer genuius.

    Would rather listen to Sultans of Ping than Sultans of Swing
  • One of mine (have the ipod out now) is Black Velvet by Alannah Myles - don't know if it's classic or GP...

    Ring my Bell is completely awesome - I'm not sure why anyone would be even slightly embarrassed! Am I missing something?
    song is great, - just too many embarassing memories of too many bad discos held in the showband halls of Ireland :oops:

    I have a VHS of Dire Straits live in 85 - I have seen them a few times with my dad!
  • 99 Red Balloons is an awesome song. Bone Fide classic.

    On guilty pleasures I raise you... Imagination: Just an Illusion.

    Yeah, but better in German: neun und neunzig luftballon and a brace of hairy pits to boot.

    I once saw Imagination in concert.

    They were fcuking awesome!

    now what about Bronski Beat - would they be a GP for anyone?

    Me First and the Gimme Gimmes do some very amusing covers. Not much of a range, but "Mandy" is a corker as is "I Believe I Can Fly"

    they lost their way with the last two albums
