Is this another obscure Eurovision song?

Does Google-proofed mean "comes up as the first result when you search for those lyrics?".

And in reply to Neil, yes it is.

Next one. And Neil ought to remove this from never-ending, as it isn't.

It's similar to rare entries, I suppose, but coagulated into one thread. For example, it's 'ended' when the answer is revealed but the next one isn't started.

Anyway, the answer must be Will I Am, with a song called, er, "Bang Bang", perhaps...

So try this one: Oh, you, pretty Chitty Bang. Quite difficult, I suppose... :?

Er, good point; arguably you may be correct; it depends whether that's considered an introduction or not. According to http://www.chittybangbang.com/chittyban ... yrics.html, they've left that bit out.

Anyway, do you want to do the next one?
