    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...

    and gone back to her ma and pa

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

    Sunny Afternoon - The Kinks :)

    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

    Let's try this one :

    There is freedom within,
    There is freedom without,
    Try to catch the deluge in a paper cup.

    (Well done for starting this again Penny :D)

    The last one is Don't dream it's over - Crowded House.

    How about....

    Saw the ghost of Elvis
    On Union Avenue
    Followed him up to the gates of Graceland
    Then I watched him walk right through

    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.

    Ah, good one and nicely fits with your avatar.

    Homer J Simpson - when I was seventeen.

    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.
