I thought it was a Kenny Lynch song 'Half the day is over and we haven't earned a penny' - but I can't play or download 'em. Is it some new Fancy Dan software I need for mp4 stuff, or do I need to fork out for new gear??
As PP would shout, 'Heyelp. It's the wolerf'.

'i'm far away and out of touch' - but where, oh International Woman Of Mystery?

Theys iTunes files Dickie. Made by The Man.

and i'm losing track of who's due a prize already.

i'll try and do some m4a to mp3 converting but i'm a bit technologically emabarrassed right now so you might just have to download them and shove them in itunes to get them to play. good luck
