Finally, today’s advent snap. I saw this on Oderburger Strasse the other evening. Looks like the hausmeister must be a jolly Christmas lover:

  4. Craig – I’m in stitches having found some Barry White titles, you must look some up!

    Try “I’m in ecstasy when I lay next to me ” for starters!

  6. God, you’re mental, Craig… ;)

    Nope, Shakira is definately not doing it for me. The only music on your list I could swallow was Antony & the Johnsons.

  11. Hi there!
    What a great idea ;-D

    I – Boytronic
    I´m so vain – Carly Simon

    Maybe there will some more rush in….

  12. You do realise some brainless fool is going to steal your clever idea for some crappy list book they’re compiling. I hope you protect your ideas!
    There is also of course the converse:
    You Yourself You (Joan Armatrading or De La Soul)
    I’m Afraid Of You (Culture Club)
    Take You To The River (Talking Heads)
    Odd how turning it into the second person makes it so much more sinister, no??

    I’m So Vain: that made me chuckle, Tanja.
