On the plus side, Carly and Paul Simon should get together and start a private eye company.  If only they could think of a catchy name for it...

I see where you're going with this...

C & P Private Investigations

right?

RIGHT????

Butter, you really can be stupid sometimes.  Do you honestly think Paul would participate in anything where he gets 2nd billing?

US, UK, AUS - Don't Go Breaking My Heart - Elton John & Kiki Dee

I severely underestimated the global popularity of that song.

I already know mine is Maggie May, and I'm pretty happy with that.  I also have by far the most kickass Playboy cover ever.

I think the number one song that year was Don't go Breakin' My Heart by Elton John and Kiki Dee.
According to my co-worker, KiKi in Tagalog means "CUNT".
Rafe has a new favorite singer!!!!

I love Kiki Dee. I have all of her songs on a tape and think she's a dreamboat!

Number 1 in the UK on my first day:

The Sweet - Blockbuster
