#I've been to Birmingham, but I've never licked a pig#

The subject of swine flu came up at work, as you would expect, and as you would also expect the subject turned to that of licking pigs. Somehow the above ear-worm based on the fine song 'Never been to me' by Charlene which can be found here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rMDKDAfnNFs
Not for nothing was this voted one of the top 5 worst hits of all time.

There is, of course, also her duet with Stevie Wonder, 'Used To Be'. The lyrics can be found here (on an image so not copyable)

"Superman was killed in Dallas
There's no love left in the palace
Someone shot the Beatles' lead guitar..."

This was also voted one of the top 5 hits of all time.
