Trivial Thursday/ The Mystery of the Missing Clap

So there I was today, driving towards the place that I normally spend 8 hour chunks of time at of a monday, tuesday, wednesday, thursday or friday, when on the radio - appeared a song from the past "Radio gaga"

"All we hear is *clap clap* radio gaga *clap clap* radio goo goo *clap clap*"

(don't get me wrong I wouldn't be physically clapping in traffic, but I'd be clapping inside my head alright)

Suddenly I noticed, something was wrong.

One of the claps was missing.

It now seems to go "All we hear is *clap* radio gaga *clap*"

Now I'm not sure about you, but my childhood discos always featured this song as a high point of the 3pm - 6pm set, and everyone clapped twice at those points in the song.

What's gone wrong?

What has happened to the second clap?

I won't rest until it is solved ...........

Ha! Quake in fear you tiny fools! You want your stupid clap back, you're gonna have to pay big time...

I know Gerry, it's unrelenting.
Yes Phillips, it's pretty upsetting for us all.
Ah the dastardly Peter G - I suppose you have it ensnared in your claptrap?!

Believe me,as one who has suffered, you're much better off without the clap.

That's not actually true, but you should never, ever, let the truth get in the way of a good story, or even a bad one.

Yikes! I knew Goulding was not to be trusted. That cartoon characters in the bar poem was just... too good.

Niamb, look...Peter sure did own up...hmph...I'd better be careful...
Btw,Peter howz a claptrap like? *scratching my head*

Niamh B said...

TFE, Thanks for the momentary comfort.
Titus - it was, the extra clap must've given him the edge
ET - Brave of you to ask the question direct, let's see if PG's brave enough to answer it.

As for Hey Ricki, and Car Wash, I'm afraid to look...

Do you really think I'd limit myself to claps? You remember the brilliant guitar solo at the end of Maggie May? Ever wondered why DJ'S always cut the record off before it? Ever wondered what happened to Milli Vanilli's real voices?
Very soon, world domination will be mine....

You'll gone too far this time Goulding!!
