That's the one I always think of first; it was a big favourite at school/college discos when I was in my teens. I doubt that many of us even knew it was a cover version. I'm pretty sure it even had its own special kind of dance - I never could follow those, but I seem to remember lots of cheesy, hippy arm waving going on!

A lot. It's my mother's favourite song. It's also on one of my beach friend's playlists so I've heard it a few times a week lately. 8)

Immediately made me think of the scene from the film Contact where Dr Ellie Arroway (Jodie Foster) is being driven through the circus that has gathered at the observatory and the song features very briefly.

Ooooh, I haven't seen that movie since it came out and don't recall this song being in it.. maybe I should watch it again sometime just to catch this! 8) Or maybe I should go build two of something at twice the price! :lol: (First rule of government spending: Why build one when you can build two at twice the price?")

It features very briefly in this scene at about 02:20.....

.....but for some reason it was the first thing that popped into my head. I do like the film though so perhaps that is why.
