what was the song? And the doo tah doo tah doo song too?

Isn't it amazing how we're so used to gettting nowhere with sites like that, that we're absolutely stunned when we get a good response???

I usually assume the "contact us" email goes into the "crap we'll never read" pile. Nice to see my theory proven wrong :)


Whoops! sorry about that. The song I loved is Luna's Malibu Sunset, and the dadoodoo song is Suzanne Vega's Tom's Diner.


Have to admit that "contact us" generally means "if it makes you feel better, knock yourself out but no one will read it". A delightful exception is you, Carl, who always answer even inane questions. Thank you.


Ah, forgot to note the 2 songs that required the detective work. Luna's Malibu Sunset and Suzanne Vega's Tom's Diner.
