    While the music theme seems popular...one hit wonders where the artist dissapeared off the face of the earth !!!

    For me the early 80s hit 'Oh Superman' by Laurie Anderson.

    It was by far the most haunting of the electronic era, depicting an industrial future where 'mother' was the industrial system itself (you can tell i know it word by word :biggrin: )

    And then.....nothing.

    Actually she did, but it did nothing for me (or anyone else, chart wise)

    Rah Band -Clouds across the Moon

    "Good evening. This is the intergalactic operator. Can I help you?"
    "Yes. I'm trying to reach flight commander P.R. Johnson, on Mars, flight 2-4-7"
    "Very well, hold on please [beeping]. Your through!"
    "Thank you operator!"

    Hiya darlin' ! How are you doing ?
    Hey baby, were you sleeping ?
    Oh I'm sorry, but I've been really missing you !

    Hi darlin' ! How's the weather?
    Saybaby, is that cold better now ?
    Oh I'm sorry, is there someone there with you??

    Ooooh...since you went away, there's nothing goin' right !
    I just can't sleep alone at night... I'm not ashamed to say
    I badly need a friend...or it's the end.

    Now, when I look at the cloud's across the moon.
    Here in the night I just hope and pray that soon.
    Oh baby, you'll hurry home to me.

    Hi darlin', the kids say they love you.
    Hey baby, is everything fine with you?
    Please forgive me, but I'm trying not to cry...

    Ooooh...I've had a million different offers on the phone.
    But I just stay right here at home.
    I don't think that I can take it anymore this crazy war.

    "I'm sorry to interrupt your conversation, but we are
    experiencing violent storm conditions in the asteroid belt at this
    time. We may lose this valuable deep space communication link.
    Please, be as brief as possible.
    Thank you."

    or it's...or it's..."Hello?" "Hello operator?"
    " Yes, ive seemed to have lost the connection! Could you try again please?"
    -"I'm sorry, but I'm afraid we've lost contact with Mars 2-4-7
    at this time."

    "Ok. Well thank you very much...
    I'll...I'll try again next year...next year...next year...next year..."

    There's never been such an excellent example of the craft of the classic songwriter. Neither has there been such a song that everyone can relate to so easily.

    Fab Foodie hanging-on in quiet desperation ...

    "Coming" apparently...the look on a mans face as he shoots his load!

    The Vapours were managed by Paul Weller's dad...Mmmm maybe that's why they sank without trace...

    Great song though. Same era as another truly great one-hit-wonders "Echo Beach" by Martha and the Muffins. Fantastic.

    Didn't Jilted John morph into John Shuttleworth, one of Northern England's greatest singer-songwriters?

    Brilliant Mind by Furniture - perfect 80's pop. Still on my ipod and one of my all time favourite songs of all time.
