I threw this together for fun. Don't know how long it'll stay up until it gets pulled down.

That was great. I loved the "I should be so lucky" sync.

The song still gets played a fair bit in Brisbane. Here's proof from today at lunchtime.

It shows up every year in the "20** Greatest songs of All Time" countdown MMM run, Last I remember it was around the 250 mark. I remember stopping work for the half hour between the sizzle and the announcement of the title, so I could get the name of it. (That was 2007, before I joined this awesome forum.)

Does anyone have the version of Five in a Row as heard on the Satanic Sketches album?
"Well David, what do you think of the Andromeda Galaxy?"
"I gave it four billion stars."
"Me too."

I have this, Eddie.

I don't think that there's much difference between the version of Five in a Row on the CD, and the single version.

Does anyone have an MP3 of that version of the song?

I have 5 In A Row from the album in mp3 which I carved out. I have the 7" single kicking around somewhere, but I don't have the means to play or convert it.
