Yes I know. Typically though, anything remotely good on this programme was cut short by half. It had to be crap to be played the whole way through!

I know we all bang on about how great music was in the 70s but to be honest, you only have to watch the old TOTPs to see there was as much crap around then as there is today!

That’s very true. The difference is that at least some good stuff got into the charts & hence onto TOTP, even if it was cut down. Amongst all the crap, that episode had “Follow You Follow Me” at no. 7 & Gerry Rafferty’s classic “Baker Street” at no. 3. Where are their equivalents in today’s chart? sad

Good point. There's always crap in the chart, back then, there was good stuff too. Even Pink Floyd could have a Christmas no 1. Can you see that happening now? Only if Simon "discovers" them!!!

I've been totally clueless about chart music since the 80s and have every intention of continuing to be! grin

You mean he's not actually saying that?! shocked shocked shocked That was one of my favourite parts of the song! cry

Edit: Just listened to that part of the song. He's definitely saying "doobedoo".

huh

I swear, all I can hear is doobedoo. I listened to that part several times and it's impossible for me to hear it the "correct" way. There's no "w" sound and I can clearly hear him pause then make a noticeable "d" sound. The part that should sound like a "t" sounds like a "d" as well. (he's a sly one, he's a shy one *pause* doobedoo!)

I'm not saying you're wrong Merryman, but I'd surprised if anyone heard it the "correct" way the first time without reading the lyrics, because it's extremely hard to notice to the point where it might as well be "doobedoo". To be honest I've always preferred that lyric because I liked how random it sounded, adding to the nonsensical nature of the song, so I may as well continue to sing it the way I've always heard it, because I can't hear "wouldn't you be too" at all. In fact this is, for me the first misheard lyric ever where the real lyric is too hard to hear.

I hear "he's a sly one, he's a shy one - dammit Mike, what were those lyrics? I swear I will never get that line in my brain...you know, I'll leave it just like this and that's it, you know, if we ever get a new singer for Peter he can make up whatever he wants and - what, you want me to sing that? Ok, good one, boys, just made my day. Hey, if we're recording a song about a weeping little monster why don't we make one about a football match? I've got some lyrics...awww, come onnnn..."

That's exactly what I hear. I can clearly see where the 'sh' and the 'd' sounds are coming from, pretty obvious actually if you just listen carefully enough.

Funnily enough, I remember this particular programme. I was in Hall Green, Birmingham, just up the road from the Lucas factory. Was on a course, and staying at a guest house there. The episode was Dee D Jackson's only appearance on the show. I bought the record.

Oh my god, I had the same issue for a while...


I sometimes hear in "Fading Lights", "Leaving our store behind." Screws me up a lot.

My best friend Lee, who's also a massive Genesis fan (though not on this forum, because he prefers Facebook rolleyes) used to think the line went "Fading-ding stoplights." laugh
