I'm posting this in an attempt at exorcism - I'm not listening to this song, but it has been stuck in my brain for days and I need to eradicate the evil earworm.

Back in 1977, there was a hell-spawn single born of a record company joke, and a John Peel "I played it by mistake" claim. This song made number 1 on the BBC singles chart and is by far the most execrable drivel that has seen the light of a music day. I had managed to forget about it for 42 years until last week, when sadly I clicked on a YouTube "One-Hit Wonders from the UK 70's" link and was immediately struck senseless, unable to hit mute, as the ghastly musical [redacted] hit me again with the fury of a repressed hell-hound.

They say a problem shared is a problem halved, so here's hoping some people read this and sympathize. I can't go on like this.

It seems Mick that you are now called "Notification".   :goggleeyes:

Yes, I've noticed that quite a few times, I even thought there was a forum member whose handle was "Notification" for a while :dunce:
Cheers, Trev.

Yes, but what was the song? :sorrysign:  I love an earworm, I usually hum them when I'm walking my dog.
Cheers, Trev.

Now come on Steve. Itís not half as bad as my pet hate. Sugar Sugar by the Archies.
The years have been good to me, it was the weekends that did the damage.

I actually quite liked it. The cartoon was weird though, and the dog was flat-out creepy.

And who remembers the Sakkarin version? :sick2:
It always struck me the people dancing were doing it to a very different one playing.
A prime example is the Thin Lizzy 'Whiskey in the jar' on TOTP

Never liked much that Jonathon King did.
