Well done, LaaLaa.

You're my rock of empathy, my dear.

Correct!

Of course, chez 2dans we are eternally in the thrall of this version of the song:

Have you tried searching Google with an image instead of text, Arthur?

I'm hoping it is the fabulous 'Ready to Mambo' by Ledernacken and not the dreadful 'Park Life' by Blur, but I'm highly sceptical it is either.

More ingenious readings from LaaLaa and Arthur, but still not quite what I have in mind.

Cast your minds back to 17th March 2012. What was the precise nature of the emergency?

No, honestly, Arthur, you are getting warmer.

But you are overlooking the song's locale.

No responses for a few days: looks like no one's got the heart for this one. The White Hart for this one?

Contrary to popular belief, Fabrice Muamba did not suffer a heart attack at White Hart Lane on 17th March 2012.

Saint Etienne - Heart Failed (in the back of a taxi) Central Park remix

Sold the ground to a PLC
Moved the club out to Newbury
Sod the fans and their families
Heart failed in the back of a taxi

So very, very close, LaaLaa.

No, honestly, I am astounded that the song title I have in mind still eludes you!

I'll accept Lynsey de Paul or Thunderthighs as the artist, Skip.

Lynsey's version of Central Park Arrest appears on the B-side of her 1974 Top Ten hit No, Honestly. Thunderthighs' rendition made the Top Thirty in the same year, the arrangement for their backing vocals on Lou Reed's Walk On The Wild Side (1972) having provided the basis for de Paul's song. The female trio also sing back-up on Mott The Hoople's hit single Roll Away The Stone (1974) (the subject of an earlier Name that tune teaser), with Lynsey herself adding the spoken bridge on the album version.
