I missed these, being away last week.

I hadn't realised that anyone misunderstood Tubthumping, and am pleased to see that I feature in Wuthering Heights - I'd not noticed!

My favourite is my mother's 'All we are saying is give Pete your pants,' and the infamous Police 'Sue Lawley' still amuses me as it makes me think of a work colleague called Sue Lawley, as well as the more famous one.

I'm still disturbed that I got more of those than the normal lyrics quizes. :sigh:
