Forget about the Spice Girls reunion, how about the Teletubbies, eh-oh?
December 2009

It's 11 years ago today since Laalaa, Dipsy, Tinkywinky and Po had a pre-Christmas number one with 'Eh Oh'. The Spice Girls beat them to the Christmas top spot but not before 'Eh Oh' had been there for two weeks. It was in the charts for 34 weeks altogether and for some anarchist souls seemed to symbolise the year that saw the heady dawn of New Labour in government.

Mary Mary quite contrary
How does your garden grow?
With silver bells and cockle shells
And pretty maids all in a row

I'm so glad that's finished
What a terrible racket
