    Surely not everyone was Kung Fu fighting.

    But you must admit they fought with expert timing....

    ....and, if you want to have another 70's 'earwig' song stuck in your head all day, may I suggest the following:

    Convoy

    Billy, don't be a hero

    Stuck on a feeling

    The night Chicago died

    Bertha Butt boogie

    Alone again, naturally

    Dancing queen

    I could go on.............................
    "L'enfer, c'est les autres"

    If you've got a couple hours to spare, this "album" was a revolutionary hit in 1610; changed the whole direction of music, linking the renaissance to the baroque. Sort of the Sgt. Pepper of the 17th Century.

    We are far from pefect,
    But perfect as we are
    We are bruised, we are broken,
    But we are goddamn works of art

    Wise words indeed.
    System: Fake news?? Trump is a Fake President™, for god's sake.

    Monk: I want to go like my Dad did – peacefully, in his sleep, not screaming in terror like his passengers.

    Plat: I'd rather fellate a syphilitic goat than own a Cervelo.

    EJ Dionne: Modern-day conservatism isn't conservatism. It's reaction rooted in deep pessimism that isn't in keeping with the American character.

    Seam: Saw Bjork poop onstage back in the day. It blew my teenage mind.

    Au contraire, mon ami....:

    Oh, honey honey

    Joy to the world

    The day the music died

    I'm a believer

    The theme song from H.R. Puffinstuff...

    Technically, "Oh Honey, Honey" is actually "Sugar, Sugar" (by the Archies)

    Also, lest we be remiss in recalling earwigs... "Afternoon Delight", a song I sung at the time without the slightest clue (in hindsight) what it was about

    Gonna find my baby, gonna hold her tight
    Gonna grab some afternoon delight
    My motto's always been 'when it's right, it's right'
    Why wait until the middle of a cold dark night?
    When everything's a little clearer in the light of day
    And we know the night is always gonna be there any way

    Thinkin' of you's workin' up my appetite
    Looking forward to a little afternoon delight
    Rubbin' sticks and stones together makes the sparks ingite
    And the thought of lovin' you is getting so exciting
    Sky rockets in flight
    Afternoon delight

    Then just when it hit me,
    somebody turned around and shouted
