Hi there Karen

Oh, and I'm told by those that were there that my karaoke version of #5 while I was on holiday in Spain a couple of weeks ago was "an unforgettable experience" and that "nobody else could have done it like that" ;).

Thanks Paul - yes, great holiday thanks, my daughters did karaoke in the campsite bar nearly every night and I got dragged up for this one (sorry for hijacking your quiz here Karen!).
My eldest daughter has a great singing voice (if I say so myself) but even I was fed up with her version of "My Heart Will Go On" after 10 nights  ::).

Whoever wrote the lyrics on the karaoke machine in Spain obviously never heard the un-bleeped version as on the screen it said "son of a gun".
Amazing to thiink that the original *bleep* was so controversial as to cause the censors to cut it in the 1960s.
