Anyone heard this new group and this new single.

It's catchy, it's brilliant, it's going to be a massive hit.

Sounds very 80s to me. Inoffensive, so long as it isn't played too often.
Like twice.

Yes it is.

It was No 1 in Germany for 5 weeks and was Radio 2's record of the week recently.

I think it will be a big hit in the UK.

Not a massive hit yet then... Rolling Eyes

I had to smile yesterday when Wogan, after playing the song, commented that he was sure the crowd was marching to the beat and shouting louder Laughing Laughing
Followed by him mumbling Sieg heil and "we will make you talk Tommy".. Laughing
Maybe he got moaned at later... Confused

It's a shame Wogan has such a low opinion of music. I can only guess he must be bored.

Perhaps he should retire from his radio show.

Not quite sure what exactly you are getting at Toggy-was Wogan making inapproriate comments.

Still this song and band are getting more popular.

Still sounding fantastic.

Play it again Sam!

Sorry I realise that now Mark, I should have read properly, I thought you meant he was making fun of the song. I see now that the comments were inappropriate, amazing how he gets away with it really.
