From the Telegraph Letters page:
Don’t skip the fandango
SIR – I read your report (April 14) that the two most-heard songs in public are A Whiter Shade of Pale and Bohemian Rhapsody and mentioned it to a friend, who immediately pointed out that both songs contain the word fandango.
Could this be the elusive secret of writing a guaranteed hit?
John Benson Harpenden, Hertfordshire
If you care to read what a fandango is, it will immediately become clear why "fandango" has become the same as a haroosh,stramash,kerfuffle and carry-on.
In any event, it would be completely beyond my ( lacking) terpsichorean skills.
Even the light fandango

WW QL is well aware that dancing with me is rather like being dragged about by a glowering ogre - and not a friendly one like Shrek either.
