Rivers of bloody hell. Is that an actual pun? Not an accident? I feel unnerved.

The Shining opening music is Dies Irae. Anyone who doesn't have cloth ears would have twigged that immediately. I realised it out of the blue 5 minutes ago.

Len Tuckey, Suzi Quatro's guitarist/ex husband. Apparently it's his real name. And he's English. Actually its probably not that obvious.

Linzi Drew's face on Roger Water's The Pro and Cons of Hitchhiking had been airbrushed off the image.



I'm not sure if that makes it more appealing appalling sexist or not.

Having only ever seen the Blur self-titled album cover in small CD format, I think I assumed the image was of someone playing pinball or something. Just looked at the LP version and it's plain as day that it's someone in a hospital pushing a trolley.

If he'd not been shot, could we have expected a new Lennon single called 'Granny Green Teeth'?

It's from 'Zilch' by The Monkees.
In fact, that's what I thought it was famous for.

Oh. I thought it was on the beginning of a Prodigy song, or the like.

I did mention it in the TOTP thread when it came up last year. It's not just PP Arnold though - -Coral Gordon and Dee Lewis are on there too
The song features that bloody Shakuhachi flute sample from the Emulator II sample library (though in Gabriel's case being played on a Fairlight). It also features The Memphis Horns, and backing vocalist superstars Dee Lewis, Coral Gordon and PP Arnold.

Where exactly is Club Tropicana? I always assumed it was Ibiza or wherever, but then he says all that's missing is the sea. So is it in Essex or somewhere?

Somewhere consistently sunny though as the next line is 'But don't worry, you can suntan.'' So maybe Afghanistan?
