So went Zatapathique and singers in the Europolice Song Contest many years ago, parodying Lulu’s win with Boom Bang-a-Bang in 1969. She sang:

…My heart goes Boom Bang-a-Bang Boom Bang-a-Bang when you are near…. Peter Warne/Alan Moorhouse, 1969

Dom alerted me to this little tidbit from the Register, letting me know that my iPod may interfere with my Implantable Cardioverter-Defibrillator. I find myself more inclined to take Monty Python’s line rather than Lulu’s, even though it is, oddly enough, Eurovision tomorrow. So I shall continue to wear my iPod with pride; the only concession I will make is one that I have been making ever since the pacemaker was fitted: no electronic devices or trailing leads near the left pectoral. Now you know.

  1. JP – you should get in touch with Prof Ken Warwick who runs Cybenetics are Reading University (used to be at Warwick Uni when I met years ago) – he has various implants in him for communicating with things, I even believe he has a “wife communication implant”. I am sure the pacemaker could be adapted to play mp3’s and would save you carrying two devices – give Prof Warwick a call!
