Nothing wrong with that. Chic slice of retro Eurosynthpop.

I'm known for my quite 'serious' musical tastes but I like this long forgotten, cheesy but very catchy electronic tune from a bit before my time...The Peppers - Pepper Box.

More when I've had another drink, perhaps.

Martina, that song by The Peppers is fantastic. Unfortunately it's not before my time I remember when it was out. ... only just though .. I have a very good memory

On that note, Jimmy, I'll add Hot Butter - Popcorn to the list. There's something naively charming about those old analogue synth hits from the early 70s.

Another wonderful song Martina. Ken Bruce likes to play that on R2. I think they were ahead of their time (in the early 70's) but now sound very much from the 1970's (if you get what I mean)

Funny - I too always connect Popcorn with Pepper box but that is because I have them on the same vinyl record a double A golden oldies release which I bought in the 90s .

Like Jimmy , I remember them clearly when they first came out.

Could also add Johnny Reggae and Sugar Sugar ( Sakkarin ) to the list despite the Jonathan King connection.

YOU RAISE ME UUUUUUPPPPPPP - Westlife

Yeah, I like belting this one out. Deffo would be my X Factor audition song. You could proper put some emphasis and emotion in the "UUUUUUUUUPPPPPPPP" bit. Oh, the heartbreaking faces I'd pull!

The bump -= Kenny
Fancy Pants - Kenny
Julie Anne - Kenny

Must ask this after months of wondering ....

Does the name MJ lives have anything to do with Michael Jackson and if so why does the King of Pop never come up in your I-pod shuffle selection ?

I have waited 3 months to ask this question and finally have plucked up the courage to do so .

Over to you MJ lives

Oh, it was at the time I started my DS account, I was listening to a Jacko song on youtube, just for a change. I was trying to think of a name and it popped into my head, and I just sorta remembered it lol

Having said that, I'm not a fan of his at all (stupid I know!), hence why I have no songs of his on my iPod, but I respect the fact that he was an amazing performer and all

I thought I was the only one who remembered Gilbert Becaud. I tried it out in the Love/Hate thread a few times and nobody knew it - or if they did know it - they said it was crap It's a little known classic!

I am actually partial to all in your list above ram.

Agree about Gilbert Jimmy - it is a beautiful song and it's on my MP3 player .

I'm amazed you like all those songs - they are all from my childhood and some even precede me !

Yes, some of them precede me too ram (I know that's hard to believe) But I do tend to like music that is older than I am. Absolutely love going back and exploring music that was around before me.

I like this and also her cheesier Blanket on the Ground.

Other examples are The Spice Girls with Who Do You Think You Are, S Club 7 with Don't Stop Moving and the Saturdays with Issues.
