The Year: 1992
Mr C: So we’ve got this new song we want to release. (snigger!)
Angus: Yeah it’s fabulous, it’s got great philosophers in it! (hee hee!)
Record Exec: This better not be about these rave parties you guys seem to love!
Angus: Oh no sir, this song even has salmon in it. (chortle!)
Mr C: It’s about this really awesome guy called Mr Goode who likes to go to birthday parties. (snicker!)
Record Exec: Phew. I was getting worried that you two were turning into a pair of drugged up dancers like every other young scallywag in this country.
Mr C: Absolutely not sir, this song even mentions Vera Lynn! (guffaw!)
Record Exec: The last thing we need is a number one song with drug references during drug awareness week!

Every school, workplace and home: E’s are good, e’s are good…!
Record Exec: /facepalm
