Destinys Child - Independent Women – Destinys Child pay homage to Alf Garnet

Meatloaf – Bat Out of Hell – Didn’t you know, Meatloafs a big Cilla Black fan, he even sings about her in this song.  Im Gonna hit the highway like a battering ram

Saturday’s - Up - Alexia who is 12 and lives in Stoke Canon hears Smelly feet at the end of the line, I'm ready for the lift up, Keep steady beat
