:-D :-D :-D

So brilliantly funny, Bob.

Can only see picture and no sound. I was wondereing what music was. Do you remember that ad of the young man taking almost all his clothes off in the laundrette in front of admiring ladies? That was to a Percy Sledge track and gave Percy an unexpected comeback late on in his career.

What on earth were they advertising :-S

It was Marvin Gaye, John.

Who sadly died in 1984
