Let me set the scene for another in the series of ridiculous conversations. This morning Dougie was reading the papers in the living room, listening to a CD. I brought in some coffee and sat with him…
Me: Who’s that singing?
Husband: Scritti Politti
Me: It’s really good. I don’t think I’ve heard that album before.
Husband: It’s called White Bread, Black Beer. Won a Mercury Music Prize.
Husband: The lead singer is called Green. He was friends with Boy George. They were big in the 80s.
Me: You wouldn’t know they couldn’t sing.
Husband: What do you mean, ‘they couldn’t sing’?
Me: Well they sound good. Pity they mimed.
Husband: What on earth are you talking about? Scritti Politti could sing!
Me: I thought there was some scandal about them miming.
Husband: That was Milli Vanilli.
