    Mr Blobby, anyone? - I must admit that I did get that single as a present on Christmas Day in 1993.

    Replaced in the charts (just as it was preceded) both by John Lennon, although it was a pity that it was the same time as when Lennon was killed.

    Doesn't the girl who does the main singing sound rather like either Pinky or Perky? - I keep thinking that they were by the same producers who also did Clive Dunn's Grandad, even though they were a decade apart. I know that St Winifred's producers were the same who did Brian and Michael's 1978 song - another candidate for the list.

    Glad to see the hate for Love Shack, they can play Rock Lobster how ever often they like but if never hear Love Shack again I will be glad of it!

    Reaching way back there was a Donny Osmond single, a cover of Puppy Love, that used to make me ill.

    I love puppets but Pinky & Perky never did a thing for me with that speeded up singing gimmick... horrid. I'll take The Wombles any day over that!

    Wasn't Pinky and Perky just normal voices sped up to around 78 rpm? - there was this documentary back in the 1990s in which they had slowed down a P&P song down and it just sounded like two men singing.
