    Um, I heard a song last night and I want to identify it. I heard the lyrics as "Pick me up, joanna pick me up" but obviously that isn't correct because I've tried google. It sounds like it's sung by a black guy with a caribbean-ish accent i think...

    Anyone have any idea what I'm on about?

    Eddy Grant - Gimme Hope Joanna :)

    Edit: The lyric is 'Give me hope' btw, which is why you had trouble. (or gimme, if we're being pedantic)

    Is this the same song from that advert with the healthy drink, with their mouths opening very wide as they sing the song?

    I seriously hope it isn't the Yop! advert you're talking about ;).

    That advert is too creepy....

    ....this thread reminds me of that site 'kissthisguy'. Named after the misheard Jimi Hendrix Lyric.
