    Cool Fixx Sightings and Sounds

    My dad called me earlier today because a program entitled "The Ugliest House" had a woman doing some demolition on a home in Southern Florida and she was wearing a light pink shirt that said - "The Fixx". Hmmm ...? Wonder if she has ever been here on the message board.
    Fixx sounds also in my local Walgreen's Drugstore. I thought maybe I was hearing things and stopped to focus and "One Thing Leads to Another" was on.

    Well, it's not a "heard on" or "seen on" moment, but Dan was in a used CD store Saturday and not only found and bought a copy of Ink, but was given a No One Has To Cry promo copy by the owner...he's putting me to shame in the fan department these days!
    Maybe on course to the best yet!

    LOL! Sherri!
    I had the SAME experience yesterday! Was walking into the Safeway market just as the opening strains of One Thing started up...I was like.."did they know I was coming in to shop, or what???" LOL!

    Shopping songs

    Hey Msmith1 maybe "One Thing" is a subliminal message to shop more or a personal reminder of some sort . Than there is the "Save by Zero" that we used to have in the ads for purchasing vehicles. Did you get an ear to ear grin when you heard the song as you entered the store? I know I was!

    Hope things are well with you these days!

    A Real Shocker . . .

    We were having lunch shortly after returning to SoCal last Fall and as soon as we sat down, "The Sign Of Fire" started. They must of known it was Rick's favourite FIXX song.

    I was at a gas station where I live and just as I was about to pay for the gas, One Thing came on and I forgot to how much I was paying!! Hahahaha, and I blurted out " The Fixx rules"! She must have thought that I was a total wacko!

    The funny thing is that I don't often hear them played while in stores, but other people that know me will hear a Fixx song while they are out and about...and have to tell me! they always say they cannot listen to a song by The Fixx without thinking of me. My goodness.
    I am the winner in any event.

    Sat down to dinner at O'Charley's. A variety of songs was playing.

    Then, as I was munching chicken strips and broccoli casserole, we heard Saved By Zero!! in its full stereophonic glory.

    Here's the spot:

    I've heard The Sign of Fire recently at our local Publix grocery store and Home Depot here in FL. I'm fairly certain I was the only person in both stores who knew all of the words (or, unfortunately, knew of the song and maybe the band at all)!

    Queen.....I have the same issue....people say they think of me when they hear a Fixx song. Wild! I tell them they should think about buying some Fixx tickets, DVDs, or merch!

    And anytime I am in a store and hear a Fixx song I will always linger around!

    I have Sirius radio and find I can get a small fix of The Fixx on channels 8, 12, and 22. Try it yourself!

    awe hell be like me and dash the middle man..
    Bye like ten or more and just randomly gift them to some folks!
    Believe you me it is so worth it.
    Cause like I picked out several people I worked with..
    all different ages and styles...
    and got back the most lovely input on how they felt about them!
    Folks just LOVE surprises and find it difficult to get themselves to stray from the norm
    & I'm not, normal that is, unfortunately.

    Please
    give it a try
    you've already been blessed with the awareness of them
    so don't dare it SHARE it...
    have ah heart and realize how COOL it really is
    I called Times 0ut !

    I think it's cool that your dad thought of you and called you! My mom was just over babysitting when we last saw them, and she was like, "Who is it again, the Styx??" I've only been listening to them for about 23 years now.

    My friend called me up when she saw the sign advertising the Fixx coming to Reno. Although when she called I was seeing the Fixx in Chicago.
