Unfortunately, a young scallywag by the name of Jilted John came up with a song that still haunts me to this day, and I am not prepared to mention the title!

My older sister bought me this single when I was very young and I treasured it for ages, but have no idea where it is now. Oh well,

"Clare, the moment I met you I swear..."

I heard it on Top of the Pops 2 the other week, it was really wierd to hear it again.
