That performance should be featured on this year's Top of the Pops 1985. :excited:

I always thought it was "tutu" rather than "toot toot".

I think toot toot might be a euphemism for something. :hmm:

Former West Brom and England strike Cyrille Regis has died, aged 59.

Regis won five caps for England between 1982 and 1987, having been one of the stars of the Baggies team between 1977 and 1984. He scored 112 goals in 297 appearances for Albion before moving on to Coventry, winning the FA Cup with the Sky Blues in 1987. He was appointed an MBE in 2008.

A footballer I've heard of, from an era of footballers I've actually heard of. You'd also see him on BBC Midlands Today from time to time.

The Cranberries lead singer Dolores O'Riordan has died in London at the age of 46, her publicist says.

I'd only been thinking about the Cranberries and Dolores earlier today, wondering if they/she had killed Sinead O'Connor's career in the mid 90s, what with her being a fellow female short-haired Irish rocker and balladeer.
