    It's obvious that there are some highly intelligent people on this forum who are huge fans of the mighty I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue, myself among them. As Mornington Crescent is already underway, here goes with another game....

    For the innocent Clue virgins, the clue's in the title! Feel free to mention personal faves from the broadcasts as well as some new ones!

    I'll start with Bridge Over Troubled Water sung to the tune of Postman Pat - sheer class!

    Something tells me we'll need a separate Clue forum on tMP before long!

    damn you rachel! just got in from work, and have spent the last 10 minutes trying to do it, which is allways a problem when you only know half the words to bridge over troubled water!

    How about "Oh, My Darling Clementine" to "Blessed Thy Great Redeemer"?

    One or two I'd like to hear attempted:

    Smells Like 'Teen Spirit' (Nirvana) to the tune of Annie's Song (John Denver)

    Wait and Bleed (Slipknot) to the tune of Calon Lan (traditional Welsh hymn)

    The Wheels On The Bus (nursery rhyme) to the tune of The Ace Of Spades (Motorhead)

    and my personal favourite; Oh What A Beautiful Morning to the tune of Isolde's death aria from Wagner's 'Tristan and Isolde'

    BTW, ISIHAC is on BBC Radio 7 (digital/internet only) at 7pm tonight (and other nights too); repeat of 12 midday.
