    Wow - now I really feel old. I remember when this came out, it certainly doesn't feel like 13 years ago.

    Oh I know there are plenty of people around here older than me, but I'm coming up for 30 and probably doing what a lot of people at that age do and wonder where the time has gone, and this song just reminded me of my teenage years. :eek:

    Bet none of you can hum along to this! I'm not going to tell you the date. If you want to know my age you'll have to look it up.

    Issy Bonn - "I'm In Love With Two Sweethearts" - not exactly a household name.
