Postby Dan-cat

I just wanted to say thank you to the wag who put Snooker Loopy on our club jukebox, 10 times in a row, just before exiting last Sunday night at about 11pm. Tremendous!! :)

I've put that on in my local pub juke box.

If you put a song on more than once in a row though, it assumes it's a mistake and skips the second playing.

Bloody thing. :grrr:

I'd never noticed the snooker ball noises used as percussion until hearing it ten times in a row like that! Which is shameful, particularly as I produce music. In fact the whole production is really well put together, a fat disco funk groove.

I've become slightly infamous in my local for my selections on the Juke Box.

I've had Snooker Loopy, and other such Chas And Dave classics. I've also put on Happiness by Ken Dodd on. Anyone Can Fall In Love by Anita Dobson. The Power Rangers theme tune used to be on there. rofl And the Rainbow Ravers. (Which was a song/band that came out when I was at university. It was Zippy and Bungle singing a song to the tune of Rainbow.) rofl

I sometimes wait until a lot of the locals have nipped outside for a fag, whack some cheeky songs on, then act all innocent when Agadoo comes on...

Steve last year, come very near
To winning the snooker crown,
But he never got to put it on his ginger nut
Cos the black ball wouldn't go down
His manager of all said 'Sod that ball'
But it helped him make his mind up
Now he don't care who wins this year,
Cos he's got the rest of us signed up

My favourite bit is....


But old Willie Thorne, his hair's all gone, and his mates all take the rise.
His opponent said 'Cover up his head, 'cos it's shining in my eyes.'
When the light shines down on his bare crown,
It's a cert he's gonna walk it.
It's just not fair giving off that glare:

Willie Thorne: 'Perhaps I ought to chalk it'.

Hahahaha Willie got by far the best verse :)

I remember a gag that Steve Davis used to do at exhibitions:

'Willie's got a new shampoo coming out, it's called shoulders'

Now Terry the taff was born in a gaff
In the valleys of the land of song
And as the reds he puts to bed
He likes to sing along
If I win he says with a grin
It can only help me can't it
I'll celebrate, I'll buy another eight
'Hairbrushes for me barrrrrrnet'

I nearly saw them at Hackney Theatre, but decided not to at the last minute. A stupid, stupid decision.

33rd in TMF Ultimate Really Bad Songs! Surely some mistake! How is our official anthem in this list? SF - will you write one of your letters of complaint? :)
