No I have not found myself as yet waundering around Allied Carpets sing or humming "I am hated for loving". Although I have had some strange looks from people standing at a bus-stop singing "Trouble loves me". Years ago a favourite at bus-stops was "Pretty Girls Make Graves". Iid be standing on the corner looking down the road to see the if the bus was coming, then all of a sudden out of nowhere "Upon the sand upon the bay......". I find this random act very calming while waiting long periods for one particular bus or other.
A nephew of mine in his early twenty's who has a stack-system with Karioki function, said he rather liked Billy Budd. I have done all of Boxers in Karioki form on this system - taped. I don't sound as good as I might though. I don't sound bad, (self praise is no praise at all,Ted) but not wonderful.
Maybe I should send this tape to Allied Carpets, and they can make copies to send to all their stores. Then everyone in the stores up and down the country can hang their heads in their hands. "Form a nice orderley queue folks for the cotton-wool!".
