A song I know all the words to:

As I abhor headphones and listening to music while walking, I choose to sing to myself instead. On the downside, this doubtless means that most people who see me think I am a mumbling mentalist. On the plus side, it means I know all the words to quite a lot of songs. From those, I’m going to choose Pulp’s Razzmatazz as I don’t have any way of listening to it at the moment (it’s on a tape, back in Shropshire) short of singing it myself – or, y’know, clicking on this video.

Actually, there is one word I’ve never been sure of. Is she “plain” or “playing” dumb?
