Terry has noticed the Manukau City Council is doing its bit for power conservation. "Powerful spotlights light up the outdoor staff carpark both night and day (no matter how sunny). When I mentioned it to the security staff who permanently patrol the staff carpark, I was told that they cannot find where to turn them off. Perhaps a $20 sensor system from Mitre 10 could be purchased so I can have hot showers this winter?"

2. Muskrat Love, The Captain and Tennille (No 4, 1976). Voter Comment: "A song about aquatic rodents doin' the wild thing? Eeeeeew!"

1. (You're) Having My Baby, Paul Anka (No 1 for three weeks, 1974). Voter comment: "What a lovely way of sayin' how much you love me' - if that isn't the most egocentric, solipsistic, revolting line of all time."
