When I was at school the ‘air’ way was definitely the standard, including a couple of Aarons in the class but the US/Aus ‘ahrr’ way seems the default now. Not sure if it was just a North London crappy way of saying it or cultural hegemony has changed things. English people seem to more commonly say ‘Nike’ as ‘nikey’ now (which is obviously correct going with the Greek etc.) but I think it was always just rhymed with Mike as a kid. (But then we all said Nestlé as nesslay because the adverts did whereas my mum grew up calling it Nestles and I think adverts in her day said it like that too.)

Hmmmm, 6 lines of densely-packed Theo-speak? Think I’ll need another coffee first.

Don’t tar us all with Eric’s terrible brush. Never heard of this either

Best mid-80s Power Of Love

  • Frankie Goes To Hollywood
  • Huey Lewis & The News
  • Jennifer Rush

I think maybe in the commentary they said that when they first asked Huey Lewis for a song he brought back this minor key ballad and they had to sort of try to explain to him what they wanted so he just went away and came back with this. I find it interesting that his initial response on being presented with this concept was a downbeat ballad but it does make sense of course.

When I was a kid and I heard the term ‘cat burglar’ I thought they were

  • People who broke in and stole cats
  • People who burgled cats
  • Cats who burgled

The first time i heard it it was explained to me that it meant a climbing burglar, though i would have liked if it involved cats in some way
