Thanks, Bee. It's getting harder to think of them now. :( One from the 70's.

Neither of those, Bernie, Bill. The song alludes more to the state of the forum, the other weekend. :D

Not sure if Ms Ross' CHAIN REACTION fits the clue but in the absence of any better thought...

Perhaps I should come ‘clean’ and say that I think that the clue is too cryptic. I promise I am not ‘soft soaping’ you.

Well done Phil, ‘Sally’ it is.

Aunt Sally was a soft soap, and something or someone who is an easy target is an Aunt Sally.

Thanks Bill. That brought back memories of my mum playing it continuously in 1969 and my dad shouting down the stairs telling her to turn it down, as he was on nights at the English Electric. He passed away the following year. Anyhoo, I'll come back tomorrow with another.
