        A contradiction in terms, methinks.

              Matt Monro, there's a singer you seldom hear anymore.
              Probably the best and only Brit crooner!
              Getting back to the point as far as a song is concerned, We're Gonna Change The World, not overtly political but relevant to this day.
              ​​​​​​​I think Ken Bruce used to play it on a regular basis during the good old days of Radio 2.

                Yes it's a good song.

                Normally you only get to Hear Born Free or Some Russia From Love on oldies stations.

                  Many years ago I heard Tracey Ullman's They Don't Know in Matalan of all places.

                  My sister used to be a shop assistant for a well-known shoe shop, and we had a tape full of 1985-1987 music that we got after collecting wrappers from a well-known chocolate bar back then. She took the tape to work with her and played it for all the shop to hear. Now, I don't know about back then, but I am sure that these days the copyright blurb would say that the tape cannot legally be played in public like that to an "audience" where anyone can listen to it - I think that the Performing Rights Society would come down like a ton of bricks on firms that would do that these days - I know that there have even been the odd court case making the news as result of that confusion.

                    Home Bargains is new store that hasn't been on our High Streets very long (1976, says Wikipedia but I haven't noticed them until relatvely recently) - I know that they use red and cyan colours in their store fronts and logos which Argos used around the years ago. Went to a Liverpool one on my birthday.

                      They have cropped up quite a bit alongside B&M

                        I think I mentioned a while back that the Poundworld in Stockport used to always be playing a compilation of just about remembered 1980s songs about 10 years ago.

                          They seemed to have been founded in Liverpool which ironically enough was where I went to one of their stores. Always in the same ilk as Wilkinson's, Boyes, etc.

                          Anyway, songs in shops...

                            great thread this , forgot about Then Jericho …brilliant track
                            not too long ago I heard Propaganda , Dual . Another great tune and Sophie Ellis bextor’s cover was good too.
                            Got me thinking about listening to Peter Powell on R1 back in the 80s where he had a section at the end of the year called slipped discs that showcased all the brilliant songs that didn’t quite soar or indeed never charted but recieved good airplay.
                            as mentioned before , maybe because of the Stock, Aitken Waterman flood.
                            I recall buying and loving can’t stop running by space monkey played quite a lot at the time .

                            anyway, late to the party here but I reckon the mystery track queried below is Hocus Pocus by Focus

                            I know this is going to sound really strange but I heard part of a song earlier which I can remember but can't think of who performed it or it's name. The only other small problem is the lyrics are quite hard to describe!

                            It's a mans voice and he's singing something like 'dodi di da dodi di da dody (about 3 times) pom pom!' Then he starts singing 'Ahhh Ahhh' getting higher and higher.

                            I don't know if the full song is rock, pop, folk, jazz or whether it's 70's or 80's - I just heard that bit and recognised it but don't know where from!

                            Anyone have any ideas?
