A generally fairly ordinary day has just been salvaged by my brain's ability to somehow identify that the tune being played on the bontempi organ was, in fact, "White Man (In Hammersmith Palais)" by the Clash. Never mind the Scouting for Girls cover of "London Calling" (about 3m39s in on that clip), I'm pretty sure that this is what Joe Strummer would have wanted to be his musical legacy.
And we won the Left Lion Quiz at the Golden Fleece too, which was nice.
I'd like to say that my answer was decisive, but the truth is that it was about the only question that I really answered. Thanks to Sarah and LB's uncanny knowledge of Cher, Cliff Richard and Thompson Twins records, and Hen's remarkable recall of the vocal parts on USA for Africa's "We Are The World", plus the knowledge that the bloke off of the Krankies and Lemmy off of Motorhead shared the same christian name, we somehow muddled through....
We may all have stultifyingly dull day jobs, but it's good to know that we can at least put our brains to productive use at least once a week.
