I used to be on T-Mobile, and their hold music was always that Royksopp song. Can't remember the name of it but it's the one that samples Blue on Blue by Bobby Vinton. Anyway, for a time I didn't have a direct debit on my account which meant phoning them up every time I wanted to pay my phone bill, and this invariably led to many a minute spent listening to this song.

One morning, whilst particularly bored and on hold for a particularly long time, I decided to sing along to the hold music.

"Dooo dooo doooooo, dooo do-do-doooo do......blue on bluuuuueeee, heartache on heartache...."

Still nothing for another 3 minutes, so I decide to sing it in cat.

"Miaow miaow miaow, miaow miaow miaow-miaow miaow..."

I was having such a good time miaowing along to Royksopp I'd not noticed that a rather bemused young lady had picked up and heard about 5 or 6 seconds of a man miaowing a tune at her.

I secretly hoped me and her would fall in love and it would be a cute story for the grandkids. Instead, I paid my £41.57 and hung up, feeling rather silly.

Ha ha...
I frequently sing along to whatever hold music is playing, but normally do it in a kind of belming mong voice.

I'm still waiting for the day I get caught. In the meantime, have a click.

I like this so much
I've done the same thing, but with Scooby Doo voice to some classical music. I didn't get a wife out of it either :(

What are you doing, phoning the moon?

Admittedly, I'm at the other end of the spectrum. I feel my bill is expensive if it goes over £10.

Epic logic, sir
"Still nothing for another 3 minutes, so I decide to sing it in cat"

And why not? Have a *click*
