    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>

    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...

    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?)

    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 -

    "It’s not the way you walk, and it ain’t the way you talk
    It ain’t the job you got, that keeps me satisfied"
