Forgotten Songs! – This Week – Can You Dig It?

There are so many songs that are out there everywhere then all of a sudden they disappear and you only hear from them very rarely that they can create a sense of nostalgic for you, the listener. So roll up and welcome to Forgotten Songs where we celebrate these forgotten wonders.


Can You Dig It? – The Mock Turtles

Today we look at a track that you may recognise the remix that was released by Fatboy Slim for the 2002 Vodaphone commercial. Today we look at a track by the band The Mock Turtles.

Can You Dig It was released in 1991 by the English Indie rock band The Mock Turtles. It was written by Martin Coogan and produced by him and Peter Smith. The track was released on the record labels of Siren and Virgin.

The original version was released into the chart in 1991 and it went into the charts at 18 in the UK and 19 in the US Alternative Airplay. In 2002 Fatboy Slim remixed the track and it appeared on the Vodaphone advert. This leads to a re-relrease of the track and it entered the charts again in 2003. In the UK it went into the charts at number 19.

I remember this track mainly from the advert and it was only the chorus that sticks in my mind. It was one of those songs that stick in your head.
