Man: Who's that walking around here? Mercy. Sounds like baby patter. Baby elephant patter, that's what I calls it!
Haha ... one of my favouritez -

Fats Waller: Your Feets Too Big

(
Say up in Harlem at a table for two
There were four of us
Me, your big feet and you
From your ankles up, I'd say you sure are sweet
From there down; there's just too much feet
)

Luvvit!

Hmmm, I've been listening to Faith No More for the last hour. Still not got it...unless it's your BONUS question and Zhuh, zuhhh, zuhhnm, nzhuhh.. is the start of a Fantômas track, but that could be any Fantômas track.

Yay! One of my favourites, too, and definitely a song I grew up with - my Dad's a big fan. I was a little worried that only Digger might get this, but it's not a completely unkown tune, so thankyou HP! Now there's only one left which I think might end up relying on the Digger...

Sounds like you need a clue. You're definitely going down the right track, though. First part of clue: it's pretty quiet - you can only make out the second part of the intro if you're listening pretty hard. Second part: Nicole had nothing to do with the writing of this song.

Ah, ok.

18. Easy, Faith No More

I think 20 is 'Concrete Schoolyard' by Jurassic 5, but I'm not entirely sure.

Well spotted! I was surprised that wasn't earlier to go, actually - it's a pretty well known tune.

Jurassic Five - Concrete Schoolyard

Alright, I just put on Fear of a Black Planet to check, and 18 is decidedly 'Fight the Power' by Public Enemy.

Edit: by 18 I mean 16!

Also nicely spotted! Ahhh, you've got to have Public Enemy at least somewhere in any given list of songs.

Public Enemy - Fight The Power
