LEE HO FOOK PROVES GOOD STRONG HOOK: Proving something, although we're buggered if we can work out what, listeners to Jeremy Vine's Radio Two show have voted the start of Warren Zevon's Werewolves of London as the best opening lines of any song, ever. Zevon's "I saw a werewolf with a Chinese menu in his hand, walking through the streets of Soho in the rain. He was looking for the place called Lee Ho Fook's, going to get a big dish of beef chow mein" just edged out Bill Hailey's Rock Around The Clock and Tutti Frutti by Little Richard.

Curiously, throughout the report on the victory, BBC News Online seems unable to decide if he's Warren Zevon or Warren Zuton.
