Feeling really guilty as I killed the last game by posting something obscure (not one Alice fan out there? ;)) so I thought i'd start it again as it's fun.......

<B>And did they get you to trade
Your heros for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
And did you exchange
A walk on part in the war
For a lead role in a cage? </B>

Ahhhh,

Pink Floyd - Wish you were here.


Try this,

All around me are familiar faces, worn out places, worn out faces

Mad World - Tears for Fears?

"I've seen you on the beach and I've seen you on T.V.
Two, of a billion stars, it meant so much to me"

Another 80's...

Hmmm, I'm not very good at this but I think that's Duran Duran - Say a prayer for me now.

As we're in the '80s...

<i><b>I'm the dandy highwayman who you're too scared to mention
I spend my cash on looking flash and grabbing your attention</i></b>

Ah, Mr Stuart Goddard - otherwise known as 'Adam Ant' and 'Stand and Deliver'... brilliant!

Actually, it was Duran Duran, but the song was 'Rio'

One last one before I call it a night....

"Somewhere in a lonely hotel room
There's a guy starting to realize
That eternal fate has turned his back on him...
It's 2am"

- Another 80's song, Dutch group (i think?)

Ahhh,

Golden Earring - Twilight Zone.



How about;

I got it bad, you don't know how bad I got it, you got it easy, you don't know when you got it good

Sounds like something by Stevie Wonder.... 'Jamming til the break of dawn'??? Sure that isn't right...

Oooo miss ...... please miss........ is it Master Blaster?

( I like the Nik Kershaw - wouldn't it be good. Haven't heard it for ages (anyone got a link?), but as soon as I read the lyrics I could hear the song in my head).

... assuming it is Master Blaster (?), I should post lyrics - I think this is probably too easy but here goes -

"Itís not the way you walk, and it ainít the way you talk
It ainít the job you got, that keeps me satisfied"

Ahhh, Sonique - It feels so good. - Good song.


Try this,

Cowboy No. 1, a born again poor mans son.
On the air America, I modelled shirts by Van Heusen



One of my faves, I really am a sad child of the 80's.

:jester:

Well done Shirley:)

panpant my guess is Frankie Goes to Hollywood - Two Tribes:)(another 80's child too!)

Ok try:
Living is easy with eyes closed
Misunderstanding all you see
It's getting hard to be someone
But it all work out

Happy Talk?

GO2209
08-23-2003, 05:10 PM
I think Captain Sensible covered Happy Talk (and that is the one I remember), but I am reliable informed it was from some musical - South Pacific?????

Assuming I am correct - how about

"I known mine are the tears I never cry
I know mine is a love I must deny"

T Pau - Valentine?

I know you're only protecting yourself
I know you're thinking of somebody else
Someone who hurt you

Billy Joel... 'I am an Innocent Man'?

How about....

"Baby take me high upon a hillside
High up where the stallion meets the sun"

"Could It Be Magic?" either by Barry Manilow or Take That!

Lost in the Milky Way,
Smile at the empty sky and wait for,
The moment a million chances may all collide.

panpant

Ahhh, the memories..

Lightning Seeds - The Life Of Riley.


How about;

Wild kind of look to the day,
opening eyes impale neon flickers
She moon she turning away,
the city's her slave but he's cheating his mistress


Bit harder this one.

Hmm... yes this is a tougher one! I think its 'Election' - pretty much a one hit wonder... Simon LeBon?? Just before Duran Duran reformed?

panpant
08-24-2003, 10:04 AM
Hey, excellent, It was indeed Arcadia and Election Day.


How about;

Here it is the groove slightly transformed
Just a bit of a break from the norm
Just a little somethin' to break the monotony
Of all that hardcore dance that has gotten to be


Appropriate...

Summertime - Fresh Prince & DJ Jazzy(?)

Staying with Rap...

"It was twelve o'clock, midnight
And I wanted a snack
So I headed downstairs
Thought the fridge was packed"

Had to look these lyrics up - Rap artists aren't my forte!
