The only song I can find is Mope by The Bloodhound Gang.

Oh God, not again.
Who was it the other week who heard a song from the eighties that was a bit electronic and we were all trying to work out what it was (it may have had 'night' in the title)?

S1ur Tue 05-Aug-08 23:35:51

Yes found that, but doesn't seem to fit description. Doesn't help that youtube streaming here is awwwwwwffffffuuuuuullll.

(am at PILs in middle of nowhere, blackhole reception)

FabioFridgeFluffFrenzy Tue 05-Aug-08 23:36:25

'Oh God not again' because I am now going to go on a google quest when there are other things I should be up to.

S1ur Tue 05-Aug-08 23:37:26

Fabby Fabio. Come on now, yy dp is crappy, but I have quizzed him on clues and whether it was just a poor segway from tinpot dj and no. It exists hmm and he has called my googling into question. I am affronted.

S1ur Tue 05-Aug-08 23:38:10

Yea for likeminded obsessive folk. Must just dash and see a girl about a birth

falcon Tue 05-Aug-08 23:40:31

I don't suppose it's this.

I'll keep searching because this is going to drive me crazy.

falcon Tue 05-Aug-08 23:42:08

Or possibly one of these remixes?

S1ur Tue 05-Aug-08 23:47:09

Apparently not first, though ta muchly. Am working though others

<blardy streaming grrr>

Bloodhound Gang - Mope

solidgoldbrass Tue 05-Aug-08 23:48:15

No help at all here (sorry) but had a fascinating few minutes earlier tonight having read a random snatch of song lyric in a novel, thought 'hmm, I am sure I remember that from somewhere else', got googling and had a HUGE nostalgia blast about singing in primary school - oh, and my search threw up a link to MN grin

S1ur Tue 05-Aug-08 23:49:17

10/10 for effort Fabby one, but no fishy treat for you this time. Apparently not Mope.

FabioFridgeFluffFrenzy Tue 05-Aug-08 23:50:32

ofgs how did I fail to read the first few posts?


S1ur Tue 05-Aug-08 23:50:49

Solid I am often slightly taken aback by random googling lonked to mumsnet. I think it may be a clever computer thing or a example of the randomness diversity of mn

Craig David


S1ur Tue 05-Aug-08 23:53:32

Fab, fear not, dp has hit dead end too so deadline is extended to his (often ineptitude) ability to find.

I think he made it up, I always find my man google.

<brash wild brag>

S1ur Tue 05-Aug-08 23:54:38

About to click, but OMG if it was Craig I would laugh my teeny ballet pumps off

Ambi Tue 05-Aug-08 23:55:20

I've Wiki'd the song, could it be a dance mix version of it? I've not read the whole blurb so the elusive track may be in there.

S1ur Tue 05-Aug-08 23:55:58

Am playing it . desparatly trying to keep from pmsl heheheheheheheh

FabioFridgeFluffFrenzy Tue 05-Aug-08 23:59:48

Is that it?


S1ur Wed 06-Aug-08 00:00:27

Not Craig. Shame.

Dp says he heard whole song in weirdy, kitsch, shop in Oxford.

I am now casting doubts on whether said version has been released or is some student remix that shop assistant with the lovely blue and red dreds just liked.

FabioFridgeFluffFrenzy Wed 06-Aug-08 00:02:18

Hmmm...was this studenty shop especially....fragrant? Smoky? Did he come home and eat all cornflakes?

And ffs why did he not ask the shopkeeper when he was in the farking shop??? Why come home and bother you?

FabioFridgeFluffFrenzy Wed 06-Aug-08 00:03:42

And by 'you' I mean 'me' obviously.
I'm meant to be doing theeengs. I haven't time to be searching the interweb for evidence of a song that may not exist. Who the f does he think I am, Fox Farking Mulder?

S1ur Wed 06-Aug-08 00:04:32

Well quite.

He is now speaking of phoning store. hmm

I think they will laugh and put him in strange pigeon hole of Frankie obsessive.

The shop was all Japanese plastic fantastic stuff.
