I think Jimmy Krankie might be off the menu too on account of the fact she's a woman he's a bit young for me. wink

I had to watch George and Aretha twice, it was brilliant. And George looked hot. blush

Duel is a great toon.

Are you all aware of the literal videos (this is a bit of Bonnie) that take the wonder of 80's videos and make them perfect?

Growlithe Sat 17-Aug-13 21:38:53

Ah ha ha haaa haa haa You know this much is true

Sparklingbrook Sat 17-Aug-13 21:38:54

Keep away from the lovely Terry Hall (who is still on my list of husbands-to-be whenever he's ready. DH is cool with this)

70isaLimitNotaTarget Sat 17-Aug-13 21:41:08

Oooh , how could I forget Ghost Town by The Specials (1981 , so just squeezed in there)

PoppyAmex Sat 17-Aug-13 21:41:19

Impulse, the first time I watched Bonnie's literal video I felt sick from laughing so much. It's a masterpiece.
