Wasn't "No Milk Today" one of theirs? It's been in my head since I saw your tagline...

smiley - sorry

My tagline comes from a French song (by Thiefaine, maybe you know him?) which I have know from single-digit age probably. I just found out a couple of months ago while listening to a Kieler radio that it was a reference to some other popular song which may be, indeed, better known, and by the band you mention.

So, in principle, you should get the French song stuck in your head smiley - winkeye

Wasn't there a thread once (or is it an EGE?) about how to rid yourself of earworms? If my memory doesn't fail, once dangerous trick was to pick an even worse earworm and try to chase the waeker with the stronger. The danger is, of course, that you may end up with a worse one in your head smiley - yikes

I would say that I don't know the French one, but if I do that, you might find it for me and I'll be stuck with it, too. So I won't. smiley - winkeye This version is bad enough to have in your head! smiley - laugh

Please be my guest; I don't really think it would qualify as an smiley - canofworms (closest to an smiley smiley - biggrin)

It will give you an idea of who the guy is though.

And who occasionally plays the original music instead of normal CDs smiley - biggrin Seriously, they wrote very good tracks.

I remember playing so much LeChuck's Revenge that, at some point, things I had to do were coming naturally (using jojo the monkey as a handle springs to mind smiley - silly)
