No time to say anything much today. A quick competition maybe?

How many song-titles can you think of that are just a word spelled out?

(I've got two so far*: R.E.S.P.E.C.T. and D.I.V.O.R.C.E.).

And one other thing: A random question that I meant to ask ages ago and never got around to: What do we think of the general idea of happiness as a public policy goal?

(*Oh, alright. I admit that I nicked this from here).

I rather hate myself for knowing this, but isn't a "song" called "D.I.S.C.O." ?

I missed out the word "there". And I still hate myself. If you've heard the "song" you'll know why.

And by the way, Paulie, its actually "Respect" not "R.E.S.P.E.C.T.". Thats a bit of business that was added into the song on the Aretha Franklin version, and notably utilised in the various live versions - some now out on cd- by Dexys Midnight Runners. But the title is just the word.

'FLM' by Mel and Kim

btw, D.I.S.C.O was a great track.

Just remembered - how about C.R.E.A.M by the Wu? Possibly the best of all of these if you are accepting my view on Respect. Darren; oh dear. No its not and I still shudder when I think that I exposed myself in front of the millions of readers of Never trust a hippy as someone who remembered it.
