These are from Button Ginger, who writes, "The Goombay Dance Band was a German (predominantly) reggae group. Play 'Seven Tears' to a British audience and I swear some of them will start swaying with lighters. During the 80s, for every Police there was a Goombay, for every Sting there was an Oliver. The band or some version of them is still touring."
I don't remember them but maybe you will. Nice hair, Oliver. Loved you on General Hospital.

Almighty Holds Rare Press Conference
NEW YORK (The Borowitz Report) - In the wake of his comments about the earthquake in Haiti, televangelist Pat Robertson has become a "public relations nightmare" and a "gynormous embarrassment to me, personally," God said today.
In a rare press conference at the Grand Hyatt in New York City, the usually reclusive Almighty said that He was taking the unusual step of airing His feelings in public because "enough is enough."
"I pray that his TV show would just go away, but of course, when you're Me there's no one to pray to," God said, to the laughter of the packed room of reporters.
While God held out no hope that Rev. Robertson's "700 Club" would be cancelled any time soon, He did say, somewhat ruefully, "If Pat Robertson were on NBC he'd be replaced by Jay Leno by now."
