View Full Version : Name That Tune...

Ok...as this seemed to be quite popular before, and as my <i>only</i> chance of participating in such a thread is by starting it because I never know any of the answers myself, hehehe, I figured it was time to give it another go.

For those not familiar with the game - I give you some lyrics. If you recognise the song <b>and</b> artist, post the answer and it becomes your turn to give us some lyrics for everyone else to guess, and so on, and so on....till we get bored (so I hope atleast one person replies to this! ;) )

Right here we go, a nice easy on to start...

<i><b>My girlfriend's gone off with my car

and gone back to her ma and pa

telling tales of drunkenness and cruelty.</b></i>

Name That Tune!

Here goes

Crazy days but you'll get me through
And here I'll stay holding on to you
Now you can be sure
Our thoughts unpure
Will unlock the door
And we will have a jolly good time

Then I watched him walk right through

The Bee Gees - Massachusetts


She's got a smile that seems to me to remind me of childhood memories

You can't sneak a Guns N Roses one past me that easily! Sweet Child 'O Mine, if I'm not mistaken.

I'll try a harder one - or at least, it's one that comes from my slightly bizarre tastes in music, so it should be!

There's a picture opposite me,
of my primitive ancestry,
which stood on rocky shores and kept the beaches shipwreck free.

You saw me standing by the wall corner of a main street and the lights are flashing on your window sill

Save a prayer - Duran Duran (that brought back lots of memories!)

We left you in pastures rarely seen, holdiing out the fortress for a while. Everyone knew why the calm had been, keeping friends among you saves a fight.

I saw you wedding gown, the prettiest dress, I came into the room that night and made such a mess. In my own way I loving ly kissed the bride, with your ring in your hand, you mouth and your eyes open wide
