Yes Sir I can boogie by Bacarra, now resurrected in a Clarkes shoes ad. Showing my age now!

At last...a response!!! Maybe i'm just in a 80's party revival mood ;)
That was one of my mum's favourites - she said i used to dress up and sing to it too, awwww!

C'mon Eileen, oh I swear what I mean
Aw come on let's take off everything...
That pretty red dress
My thoughts I confess
Verge on dirty............
Aw come on Eileen please

LOL Marslady... do you know that in all the times that i've heard that song I did not realise those were the lyrics...ahhh the days of innocence!!!

On thinking about it now, i think i used to sing

'Come on Eileen, i swear now Eileen,
I need your address, come on Eileen
What's your address, oh i need your address..
Come on Eileen, make me happy'

OMG is that the words for come on Eileen, everyone sings that when they find out my middle name is Eileen, never realised it was dirty

Blue Monday/New Order. I listened to it the other day and it's so eighties (in a good way).

It was great to see New Order live (on TV) at Glastonbury....would love to see them love, if only for old times sake.

Fio2 Tue 28-Jun-05 12:00:26

I loved Abracadabra, Steve Miller band aswell, can just remember me and my sister dancing round the lounge in our leaotards

Lizzylou Tue 28-Jun-05 12:00:37

OOh, Duran Duran and Aha!!! I had so many posters of both of them on my wall! Was convinced I would marry Simon Le Bon!!!
And little boy is called Morten in my DS's nursery class...must be another Mom with fond memories of the chiselled cheekboned Nordic one...

Was making my DS laugh the other day, dancing round to Madonna's "Get into the groove"

zingiber Tue 28-Jun-05 12:01:53

Remember Smash Hits? I lived for the days it arrived at my newsagents.

cardy Tue 28-Jun-05 12:02:17

Gawd Morten H was gorgeous....

zingiber Tue 28-Jun-05 12:03:43

Oh, Morten Harket was my dream man. (I was 12.) Was just thinking the other day, I was 12 - he was 25. Not cool. Now I'm 32 and he's 45. No problem there that I can see. Oh for the opportunity...

zingiber Tue 28-Jun-05 12:04:07
