    There's no other footballer in the world that can do Rappers Delight, like John Barnes...

    Swap footballer for fat cnut and I reckon Howson could beat him.

    Without those red tinted specs Punt, do you really think he's good:lol
    To me he's been milking 'World in motion' for a lot longer than he deserves to be, It was a great song and he was the best singer in that England squad at the time but without New Order it would have been on it's arse.

    They don't call us bitters for nowt:lol

    Best singer in the squad? It wasn't singing it was just talking. It was originally supposed to be Gazza but nobody could tell what the daft Geordie cunt was saying.

    We've been having 70's radio on at work lately. I'll be glad when we're back on the 80s..

    Found myself playing "Alone again, naturally" loads over the last three months or so. No reason, before anyone asks - the wife hasn't left me:lol

    I think it's an excellently written song.

    :lol

    It's a great track and i don't know why i hadn't got it on my playlist. I've just added it

    Gilbert O'sullivan, Leo Sayer and even Jimmy Osmond (long haired lover from Liverpool) always remind me of the summer holidays from the age of 6 to 10.
    Our Ma' would chuck me and my brothers in the back of her old Ford Squire and make us go Pea Picking, Gooseberry picking or even Hop tying with her :lol

    She had to work the land back in those days and there was always an old radio playing 70's tunes, there.

    I'd always end up getting in to a bust up with one of the Worcesters and Chinese burns were usually the way to settle the argument :lol

    An old Ford Squire. This one very similar to me mums, only our mums was a right rust bucket. I used to duck down in case any of me mates see me in it lol...

    You must have had money Punt if your mam had a car in the 60's/70's.
    There was only one family on our estate who had a car (it actually looked like that lol but I'm pretty sure it was a rover) and that had a tow bar on the back and a caravan parked next to it, how posh were they lol.

    My dad must have been about 35 or 40 when he first started driving, that would have been around 77'ish , his first car was a black Escort mk 2 estate that looked like a fcuking hearse but had so many problems we never got to go anywhere in it, he swapped that for a corsair that was so out of date none of us would get in it so we never got to go anywhere in that either:lol

    Snap!
    I'd add Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep to that list too, reminds me of summer holidays and collecting coke can pulls, when you used to snap the tab off one end then flick it with the pull and watch it fly like a little flying saucer.

    In my eyes, the best. Top entertainer- could sing, dance, play any instrument, write songs, produce songs, one of the best guitarists ever. What a fucking man.
