    Slade's Come On Feel The Noise. Yep that would just about sum up all these years spent in classrooms full of 11-year-olds :confused::rolleyes:

    Sugar sugar by the Archie's has always been my favourite and is my ring tone.

    Mercifully Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep was supplanted by T Rex's Get It On in the week that I turned 12, although what 'it' is that I'm supposed to have got on for the rest of my life I haven't a clue.

    Marc Bolan versus Middle of the Road deciding the theme of my life - a damned close run thing there.

    I've had a look at the Top 20 in the Hit Parade for the week of my 12th birthday and can remember every song in it. I can even remember it being called the Hit Parade back then.

    A friend and I won a student rag talent nite with our acoustic cover of that track. All the more remarkable in that we only had one guitar which neither of us knew how to play. It was the punk rock era though, so we got away with it.

    Just googled, Slade "Mama we're all crazy now" was number 1. David Cassidy, Donny Osmond, TRex, Rod Stewart, the Drifters all in there. Still love a bit of Rod Stewart

    I have the incomprehensible "Pass the Duchie" by Musical Youth. Catchy song but no idea what it's about.
