Apple use the 00's track, and i'm sure it has cropped up on something else too. Yes Its "Live at the Apollo" penny has just dropped.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Anyway on to a sort of Pickled Egg Quiz, but mark your own papers, and then select one of your answers to post on the Pickled Egg Jukebox, sort of a random track generator...

Kick off with the numbers 1 to 20. Some big letters coming
Track titles only please
not artists, not within lyrics

Name track titles for each of the numbers 1 to 20.
Here's mine these are top of the head, lookies up if you like.
1. One day I'll fly away, 2. 2 become one 3. 3 little birds 4. 4 is a magic number 5. "54321" 6. Half a Sixpence
7. 7 Seas of Rye 8. 8 days a week 9. Ninety Nine Red Balloons, 10. Perfect 10 11 fail 12. 12 days of Christmas
13 fail 14 fail 15 fail 16 Sweet Little Sixteen 17 At 17 18 fail 19 Hey Nineteen Steely Dan 20 Fail
and the track selected from the fairly ordinary list has been placed on the Pickled Egg Jukebox here

Spot on Mick! Not fully built yet and it's huge!!! It has 3 floors and is a monster. It'll be doing a new tunnel between Silvertown and the 02 Arena to stop lorry's from using the Blackwall tunnel.

The day's eardling started with a bullseye in Asia and then exploded into a miraculous bullseye on wordle although it was one of my regular starters that came up trumps:
Spoiler: show

Screenshot
Followed that up with a 3 and a 2 on nerdle and speed nerdle and thought I'm on a roll here, time for the heardles! At that point I rolled right off the ball and recorded my second blank across the board, not a single note of recognition!!

So a very mixed bag today but onward and upward! :-D
