Flanagan and Allen's songs featured the same, usually gentle, humour for which the duo were known in their live performances, and during the Second World War they reflected the experiences of ordinary people during wartime. Songs like 'We're Going to Hang out the Washing on the Siegfried Line' mocked the German defences, while others like 'Miss You' sang of missing one's sweetheart during enforced absences. Other songs, such as their most famous, 'Underneath the Arches' coupled with "Scrolling", had universal themes such as friendship.
Their lack of enthusiasm for new technology is legendary so their song "Scrolling" has a surprisingly prophetic twist in the rarely published third and fourth verses.

Tomorrow, we will explore the map and the rest of the "much improved" (?) web site. Treats in store all round.
If you like twiddly, scrolling and clicking.
