    Re: Songs with boys names

    I was just looking at an old thread just now, and it mentioned that Dionne Warwick song Message to Michael (one assumes Message to Martha with a male name). I think it was a Bacharach composition.

    Re: Buzz aldrin...90 today

    It's frightening to think of a member of ABBA being in their 70s - mind you, the Brotherhood of Man are around that mark, aren't they?

    Dancing Queen Mother, anyone?

    Re: Winter

    It gets dark now after 4.30 pm and not before 4.00 pm like this time last month.

    Re: Bbc 4

    There are some good BBC 4 programmes on - over Christmas I saw the Royal Institution Christmas Lectures on there like I do every year.

    I used to think that BBC 4 was the Guardian reader's channel...

    Re: Songs with boys names

    Excellent one, Richard - one assumes that Elton sung about someone with a boy's name because of his, shall we say, sexuality? (and I assume that this was certainly the case back in 1973?)

    Mind...

    Thanks for that - the thing is that hardly anyone has that name.

    Tarby's Frame Game

    Does anyone remember that game show hosted by Jimmy Tarbuck which was on ITV at the weekends between 1987 and 1989? - it was a rather lowkey game show to be honest, although it was enjoyable. Tarby...

    Re: Abba

    It's a pity that they never had a Christmas number one - not a song about Christmas, but one which was at the top spot at Christmas time. I think that 1979 was the closest year that they had...

    Re: Winter

    I don't know - summer seemed to last longer when I was younger than the winter months did. Managed to get through Blue Monday without any major problems.

    Re: Crackerjack is back!

    I am certain that it was on at 5.00 pm originally back in the 1950s, but was later moved five minutes earlier to 4.55 pm due to some scheduling difficulties? I am certain I read that somewhere.

    Re: Pebble Mill at One

    It was basically, what I would think of, the 1970s and 1980s equivalent of an afternoon version of This Morning - I believe that the 1970s and 1980s version was more of a magazine format, where in...

    What about David Bowie's Life on Mars? - what on earth was Bowie doing when he wrote that one?

    Does anyone think that Tyler was a female version of Rod Stewart? The gruff voice they both have are comparisions.

    Re: Songs with boys names

    I have always regarded Jude as Judy.

    Simon Smith and his Amazing Dancing Bear.

    The Postman Pat theme (although Pat is usually a female abbreviation).

    How many songs that have boys' names...

    Put me in tight blue jeans and a denim jacket and you have Shakin' Stevens.

    I have always had a great imagination.
