Tonight on Something Completely Different - it's "Something Completely Fashionable!"  

I've heard some grumbling in the ranks, all about how too many Something Completely Different shows are too...well...quirky. Like people's first and last names. Like birds in the title. Like...like...dead people, for instance. What about concentrating more on singer-songwriters, on musicians, or musical instruments, even?
