My first thought was Ian Hunter's Central Park N' West, but the closest connection I could get to Fabrice Muamba was an ambulance reference in the lyrics and that The Reebok Stadium is just up the road from Westhoughton

I never knew Central Park had a golf course in it. And it's much more woody than I expected.

You'll need to start choosing some j-pop numbers to keep the interest of our junior members. Wink

I'm taking a guess at the delicious smooth pop number Ain't No Doubt by legendary Geordie crooner Jimmy Nail

I'm afraid my knowledge of Mr Nail's work doesn't extend beyond his fetishisation of crocodilian footwear.

A good guess, Arthur, but not quite what I had in mind.

A zany remark plays a part here.

The song I have in mind was released before most of our younger members were born.

The Manhattan Transfer recorded their version of Chanson D'Amour (Song Of Love) in 1976, LaaLaa.

Most of Second Space's younger members are now in their mid to late forties.

We need a clue? Does either the artist or the song have the word "snail" in it or do we need to be thinking a lot more laterally?

Disregard the snail (a touch of whimsy on my part) and try a more literal interpretation.

If your deductions are correct, then on what part of the snail's anatomy is no salt permitted?

Well done, LaaLaa. With Arthur's help you named that tune.



And what a fabulous tune it is.
