Thank you. Even I was beginning to twitch.

I never understood why he sung a song about the follically-challenged member of the Magnificent 7 and his reluctance to use after shave...

And its a first ! WoW admits to knowing something about a popular beat combo.
I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

TBH, I think Wowbagger professing an ignorance of popular culture to rival that of a High Court judge is an act. :demon:

Stuff that was popular culture when I was small I know a fair bit about - or at least, have heard of people/bands. It's pretty well anything after I left school in 1972 that is a closed book to me.

Last time I went on the Mersey ferry they still gave a blast of the song as they cast off - do they still do that?

I have worked a lot in Liverpool recently (at least until Covid borked everything)

I can confirm that, yes, they do. Every bloody time.

So that's where that football club got that song from.  I never wondered.
I've dusted all those old bottles and set them up straight.
