This is the basic idea:

Post a (part of) a lyric so others can name the song.

If the thread is unanswered for too long you can use a search engine, but give people time to think about it.

(and don't forget to come back and tell people if they are right)

Name that tune :

Need I say I love you

Need I say I care

Need I say that emotion's,

Something we don't share

I don't want to be sitting here

trying to deceive you

Cos you know I know baby

I don't wanna go.

We cannot live together

We cannot live apart

That's the situation

I've known it from the start

Every time that I look at you

I can see the future

Cos you know I know baby

I don't wanna go.

This thread is going to kill me. I can name a tune in one note, but I almost never know the lyrics.

Genesis: "Throwing it all away"

======

Here's an easy one:

And I would be the one

to hold you down,

kiss you so hard,

I'll take your breath away

and after I'd wipe away the tears,

Just close your eyes dear

Through this world I've stumbled

so many times betrayed,

Trying to find an honest word,

to find the truth enslaved,

Oh you speak to me in riddles

and you speak to me in rhyme

My body aches to breathe your breath,

you words keep me alive,

Sarah McLachlan: "Possession"

Fortunately for me, I really dig Sarah McLachlan. She sure changed my mind about her at Lilith Fair.

Does this mean I have to post the next one, then?

Okay...

I think you guys posted too much, so I'm posting less, but it's still wayyy easy:

She comes to me when I'm feelin' down

Inspires me without a sound

She touches me and I get turned around

She's got a way of showin'

How I make her feel

And I find the strength to keep on goin'

Told you it was easy. I love that song. I'm such a damn romantic. It's disgusting.

I debated posting lyrics from Anthrax's "Indians," but decided to hold off on non-mainstream music for a few pages.

There's this one, that's older but common:

Staring blindly into space

Getting up to splash my face

Wanting just to stay awake

Wondering how much I can take

Should have tried to do some more

JL... I think yours is 25 or 6 to 4 (Chicago)... actually, I'm pretty sure it is.

------------------------------------------

This one should be pretty easy.. basically classic "rock" from the 70's, but played quite often to this day.

------------------------------------------

And if your train's on time

You can get to work by nine

And start your slaving job to get your pay

If you ever get annoyed

Look at me I'm self-employed

I love to work at nothing all day

JLR: hehe, ok... here's the first verse... this ought to seal the deal


---------------------------------------

You get up every morning

From your alarm clock's warning

Take the 8:15 into the city

There's a whistle up above

And people pushin', people shovin'

And the girls who try to look pretty

And if your train's on time

You can get to work by nine

And start your slaving job to get your pay

If you ever get annoyed

Look at me I'm self-employed

I love to work at nothing all day

Ok... I guess this one might have been a bit tough based on some of the PM's I've received.

The song is "Takin' Care of Business" by BTO

BTW: 1vegan... thanks for bringing back this thread

I can tell you what they say in space

That our earth is too grey

But when the spirit is so digital

The body acts this way

That world was killing me

That world was killing me

An oldie:

*** *** ***** ** ****,

No one ever cared if I should live or die

Time and time again the chance for love has passed me by

And all I know of love is how to live without it

I just can't seem to find it

So I've made my mind up

I must live my life alone

And though it's not the easy way

I guess I've always know

The Carpenters? Come on!

"Goodbye to Love."

I hope my mom has finally destroyed all her old records...

You're giving me easy lyrics! What's mine?

BTW, if you give me any modern pop/boy-band stuff, I'll be stumped. It's that easy.
