Chippy brings us a shocking revelation in his comment on my previous post. It seems that the name of our flag-flying band at the Eurovision Song Contest has seven possible meanings, none of them likely to delight the parents of their burgeoning teenage fan base. Chippy is especially concerned about number 7, as, indeed, am I. Naughty pop and rock names have a venerable tradition - 10cc, The Sex Pistols and Axl Rose all have, shall we say, hidden meanings. But some of the possible meanings of Scooch make the Pistols look like The Partridge Family. And, of course, subverting the dewy innocence of the ESC in this way is an outrage. Somebody should write to the Daily Mail before it is too late.
