To always confuse 'Baker Street' with 'Layla'?

DH thinks I'm bonkers and that they have nothing at all in common but every time either is on the radio I always get confused. Baker Street is on now and Dh got in there first and said, 'hey love, Layla's on the radio' and it took me a few bars to realise he was taking the piss.

Surely it's not just me?

Yes, it's just you!

Guitar or saxaphone

Gerry Rafferty or Eric Clapton

Middle of the road or searing angst

As you say, not at all alike grin

I thought it might be just me! Any idea at all why they are so mixed up in my head?

It's just you.

It really is just you and your 70s radio station smile

Definitely just you. I am trying now and can't see how they are at all alike! smile

However, it is absolutely impossible for 2 people to sing the theme tunes to "the flumps" and "the pink panther" at the same time. One of you will get sucked into following the other, like a convent of nuns on their periods!

Actually I have never thought this before but now you've put this in my mind I do actually see your point.

Bloody love those two songs.

AlbusPercival Tue 17-May-16 18:47:24

It's not just you OP I do the same!

Baker Street is one of my top ten songs, it uplifts me whenever I play it.

Can't believe there are two of you! Both brilliant songs, although Layla is absolutely perfect!

Oldraver Tue 17-May-16 18:51:30

How could you....Baker Street is such dross, I have to turn the radio off if it comes on

StillStayingClassySanDiego Tue 17-May-16 18:52:42

.*Baker Street is such dross*, whatttttttttttttttt ;shock

StuRedman Tue 17-May-16 18:58:25

I always loved the rumour that it was Bob 'I'll have a D please Bob' Holness who did the Baker Street sax bit

BestIsWest Tue 17-May-16 19:03:53

Nope. Completely different but love them both.

AlbusPercival Tue 17-May-16 19:05:13

It's the opening bit. Clearly once they sing I know the difference grin

The80sweregreat Tue 17-May-16 19:08:17

Totally different songs.
Love them both.

Can see why you get confused OP and they're both great but Baker Street just hits me every time I hear it; mainly because it reminds me of so many amazing times, and that sax just takes me right back to those times every single time I hear it.
