For a while when I administered a telephone switch for a call center, Zoom A Little Zoom was the hold music I used for testing purposes.

If I'd used the craptacular "music" that people who called into the production numbers got while they waited, I'd've gone barking mad.

What?
No Flanders and Swan?

They remain the only people to have a hit by setting the laws of thermodynamics to music...

You can't pass heat from a cooler to a hotter
You can try it if you like but you'd far better not-a
'Cos the cold in the cooler will get hotter as a rule-a
That's a physical law !

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

What.....No Moxy Fruvous???

Then why can't we make a clean machine that moves perpetually?
Cause there's another law with which all energy must agree.
Whenever it changes form, it loses quality

in other words...

Damn that rising entropy!

TFD - You're very welcome: I was much saddened when I learned they had drifted apart.

Now...what happened to the Doug Anthony Allstars???

Broke up years ago, sadly.
For some fantastic geeky aussie comedy, check out Tripod.

There's some of their stuff on youtube

TFD - The Tripod stuff is very good - but I did get flashbacks to over 20 years ago when I saw the website design. [Smile] ....and anyone who does decent cover versions, like this lot do, is ok by me. [Big Grin]
