When I mentioned that I'm soon-to-leave Programmable Logic Design in this week's newsletter (I hand over the reins to Dylan McGrath on Monday, March 16), I also noted that I currently have all sorts of tunes buzzing around my head, including "Don't cry for me, Argentina..." (from the musical Evita), "And now, the end is near..." (from the song My Way), and "You say goodbye and I say hello..." (from the Beatle's Hello Goodbye)...
That was foolish of me, because I should have known that this would open the floodgates to your creative juices. For example, a long-time correspondent called Mike immediately came back with the Liberty Bell March by the legendary John Philip Sousa (this was, of course, the theme to Monty Python).
Of course that started the tune rattling around in my head and – while I was still reeling from the blow – Mike quickly followed up with another brilliant suggestion ... yes, you guessed it ... Yakety Sax, which was the exit theme from The Benny Hill show.
Good ones Mike! :-)
