    The Fork Me 7" vinyl collection thread
    OK, you asked for it, well a couple of you did anyway. As I don't currently have access to the collection itself, I'm using a site I catalogued it on before I left the UK meaning the alphabeticisation (just made that word up) follows theirs. Meaning punctuation comes first, followed by numbers. then letters. It might be a while before we even make A...

    "Weird Al" Yankovic - Smells Like Nirvana
    (Single, Scotti Brothers, 1992, PO 219)



    A Smells Like Nirvana
    B Waffle King

    Weird Al has been around forever, or so it seems. He's released a HUGE number of parodies and every now and then one of them charts. This was a good parody, even if it was all based on not being able to understand Kurts mumbled lyrics. I even got away with playing it in a club where Nirvana themselves were hugely popular.

    "The lyric sheet so hard to find
    What are the words? Oh nevermind!"

    The video is a pretty good parody on the original as well.

    Oh yeah, that and the Bin Laden one also makes me chuckle.

    As a (sort of) aside, I introduced my son to Weird Al's film UHF a while ago... silly childish humour, I hadn't seen it for years but the movie parodies are good.

    10cc - I'm Mandy, Fly Me
    (Single, Mercury, 1976, 6008 019)



    A I'm Mandy, Fly Me
    B How Dare You

    I bought this in a records fair when I was at Uni in Sunderland. It was sitting right at the front of the first pile of singles I went to look through, and I'd pulled a girl called Mandy just a couple of days before. (Actually, she pulled me, she was a dead 'ard Yorkshire lass).

    10cc did appear in the 12" thread so I'm not going through all that again, but this came out after they were known. Mercury bought out the crap deal they had with Jonathan King which had left them skint despite good sales purely on the back of I'm Not In Love. This came a year later, from their 4th album (How Dare You). Tensions mounted while the album was recorded and this was the last single released by the original line up.

    This record has MELY AND ?IBC scratched into the run out groove on the A side and MELY DARES! on the B side. Melvyn (Mely) Abrahams, was a mastering engineers at a plant called IBC and was known for scratching odd things in the dead wax. Someone once told me that fake copies of this single don't have that in the wax, but as this single sold well and isn't really worth anything (online copies usually sell for anout 1) I don't see why anybody would bother to press fakes.

    2 Unlimited - No Limit
    (Single, PWL, 1992, PWL 256)



    A No Limit
    B No Limit (Automatic Breakbeat Remix)

    The lowest common denomonator in dance. Catchy and annoying. Problem is, the beats were good, try NOT moving at all to it, it doesn't work.

    I remember that, I was looking for it on YouTube but it doesn't seem to be on.

    2 Unlimited - No One
    (Single, PWL, 1994, PWL 314)



    A No One (Radio Edit)
    B No One (Unlimited Remix Edit)

    2 Unlimited were no one hit wonders, they had 16 hit records, selling over 18 million units in a 5 year period.

    They were formed by two Dutch producers, who had already had a hit as Bizz Nizz, they put together an instrumental called "Get Ready For This" which became a hit in the clubs, but they decided it needed vocals. They sent it to rapper, Ray Slijngaard to see what he could do, and he enlisted the help of a friend of his Anita Doth, who was, at the time, a traffic warden. It was decided then that Ray and Anita would front the group.

    No Limit came from their second album and this from their third. It's even more poppy than their usual stuff.
