Well done samuria for trying to lighten the mood, mostly being deafened by the screeching sound of axe's being ground.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Could the Marty Robbins, be an obscure reference Felina in El Paso, who was not an angle?

I tend to remember a lot of useless trivia! First record was the Tornado's 'Telstar' - also the name of my first cat.
I'm getting really annoyed now as I cant quite bring to mind the Marty Robbins track.   Angry

Ah no! Marty Robbins had a minor hit with Devil Woman, amongst many other covers of it.

Re: Can you name these old hits?

@samuria, could you clarify the clue at Frankie Vaughan please. If its a typo and "penny thrower" then Three coins in a fountain will fit.
