Vive les sixties!!!

Keith and have have a new game to play this week. It all started when he got a new mobile phone. Having made fun of my new 3G, all singing/dancing phone, he has now acquired an almost identical one himself. Our first game was the 'Who's phone is best' game and I must confess, I think he has the edge on me there as his is bluetooth and is also a speakerphone. However, mine has more and better ringtones, unless you want to spend £4 a time downloading them off the internet.
So, being a bit of a computer whiz, Keith decided he would convert one of his MP3's into a ringtone.
So, onto our new game. It's like this:
1.Keith spends most of the evening on the computer playing or downloading possible contestants for the honour of being the ringtone on his phone
2.The music he downloads is from the golden sixties era (Nothing decent has seen the light of day since then, with the possible exception of Abba and Mike Oldfield, as I'm sure you'll agree).
3. I have to guess the title and the group or singer within the first few notes - which I usually do!
4. No prizes for me, unfortunately, and Keith still hasn't decided on a ringtone.
Personally, I'd go for Lulu's piece de resistance, "Shout'" In fact, I might have that one for my phone!

Abba? Not so sure. Otherwise I find myself admiring your taste in post-Sixties music.

Good on you, Jenny! Hey, how about "Ring Ring" by ABBA for a ring tone on your mobile?

Mobile. In North America, they're cell phones. Mobile seems more accurate, I think. That term figures prominently in my play, btw.
