I say this because it happened to me just the other day. When in New Romney with my Sis (see post on the food blog titled Biggles Goes Børk Børk Børk) I went into two charity shops - one, a branch of the British Red Cross charity shop, where I purchased two books (a copy of Roald Dahl's Matilda and Pam Ayres' Surgically Enhanced), and then another charity shop which I can't remember the name of, where I found a treasure trove of old discs, cassettes and VHS videos. Ah. If I'd had more time I would have given them a thorough examination, but alas, we were on a bit of a tight schedule and besides, we were getting hungry! In amongst the 45s were some real belters. Of course, I had no intention of buying any, at least not until I get a stereo with a decent turntable that can do them justice. But there on the top of the heap was the Kids From Fame's Hi-Fidelity. Ah, those heady days of 1982. Leroy and Bruno and Danny and Professor Shorofsky. It seems like only yesterday.

|Handsome devil, ain't he?|
|The teeth are the same, and they're all his, girls!|
A bit of a change, I trust you'll agree.
The next one was pretty damn cool too. Anybody remember Mr. Terence Trent D'Arby?
There was also this little number from Chuck D and his combo.
|What the heck happened to Flavor Flav? When did he lose his damn mind?|
Aaaanyway, I continued on undeterred, skipping past the dross of Bros, and coming to the pick of the litter.
I had found it. The creme de la creme.
|Ah, the Bunnymen at their brilliant best. There are no words to describe how catchy this song is until it gets stuck in your head at 3 am. and you can't get to sleep because all you hear is "Seeeeeeven seeeeeeas, swimming them so weeeeeelll..."|
Well, since I didn't buy them I'll just have to add them to my vinyl wishlist. Along with this item....
