    This track is very funny and quirky. But when you put it together that they **really are** singing about the two oafish "detectives" from Tintin, it becomes even better!

    Somebody's after me He left his footprints by the garden tree Last night when I got home I got the feeling I was not alone!

    This is really pretty Tintinish. I need to try and get a hold of the cartoon somehow.

    Fun Fact - The Thompson Twins got their name from a pair of characters from the French TinTin graphic novels of the 50s. In the story, the Thompson twins were - you guessed it, detectives. Things that make you go hmmmmmmmm.
