So, after the evening's compere, Independent on Sunday editor-at-large Janet Street-Porter, tipsily introduced herself as the 'independent-at-large', one was left to record the IPR playlist for awards ceremony posterity and indulge in a game of 'Name that synergistic tune'.
Here are some of the evening's gems - Def Leppard's Animal for WWF's PA award; Iggy Pop's Lust for Life for Rebecca Mayo's Young Communicator accolade; Oasis's Cigarettes and Alcohol for Heineken Music and Slice's international PR award; and Blondie's Hanging on the Telephone for the CSR award for BT's Am I Listening? campaign by Sinclair Mason.
But the 'grand prix' has to go to The Proclaimers' I Would Walk 500 Miles for Zimmer's 2-Incision hip replacement procedure campaign by Kaizo. Inspired.
