This is the basic idea:<br><br><br><br>
Post a (part of) a lyric so others can name the song.<br><br><br><br>
If the thread is unanswered for too long you can use a search engine, but give people time to think about it.<br><br><br><br>
(and don't forget to come back and tell people if they are right)<br><br><br><br>
Name that tune :<br><br><br><br>
Need I say I love you<br><br>
Need I say I care<br><br>
Need I say that emotion's,<br><br>
Something we don't share<br><br>
I don't want to be sitting here<br><br>
trying to deceive you<br><br>
Cos you know I know baby<br><br>
I don't wanna go.<br><br><br><br>
We cannot live together<br><br>
We cannot live apart<br><br>
That's the situation<br><br>
I've known it from the start<br><br>
Every time that I look at you<br><br>
I can see the future<br><br>
Cos you know I know baby<br><br>
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"<br><br><br><br>
======<br><br><br><br>
Here's an easy one:<br><br><br><br><br><br>
And I would be the one<br><br>
to hold you down,<br><br>
kiss you so hard,<br><br>
I'll take your breath away<br><br>
and after I'd wipe away the tears,<br><br>
Just close your eyes dear<br><br><br><br>
Through this world I've stumbled<br><br>
so many times betrayed,<br><br>
Trying to find an honest word,<br><br>
to find the truth enslaved,<br><br>
Oh you speak to me in riddles<br><br>
and you speak to me in rhyme<br><br>
My body aches to breathe your breath,<br><br>
you words keep me alive,

Sarah McLachlan: "Possession"<br><br><br><br>
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?<br><br><br><br>
Okay...<br><br><br><br>
I think you guys posted too much, so I'm posting less, but it's still wayyy easy:<br><br><br><br>
She comes to me when I'm feelin' down<br><br>
Inspires me without a sound<br><br>
She touches me and I get turned around<br><br>
She's got a way of showin'<br><br>
How I make her feel<br><br>
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.<br><br><br><br>
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:<br><br><br><br>
Staring blindly into space<br><br>
Getting up to splash my face<br><br>
Wanting just to stay awake<br><br>
Wondering how much I can take<br><br>
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.<br><br><br><br>
------------------------------------------<br><br>
This one should be pretty easy.. basically classic "rock" from the 70's, but played quite often to this day.<br><br>
------------------------------------------<br><br><br><br>
And if your train's on time<br><br>
You can get to work by nine<br><br>
And start your slaving job to get your pay<br><br>
If you ever get annoyed<br><br>
Look at me I'm self-employed<br><br>
I love to work at nothing all day

JLR: hehe, ok... here's the first verse... this ought to seal the deal <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
---------------------------------------<br><br>
You get up every morning<br><br>
From your alarm clock's warning<br><br>
Take the 8:15 into the city<br><br>
There's a whistle up above<br><br>
And people pushin', people shovin'<br><br>
And the girls who try to look pretty<br><br>
And if your train's on time<br><br>
You can get to work by nine<br><br>
And start your slaving job to get your pay<br><br>
If you ever get annoyed<br><br>
Look at me I'm self-employed<br><br>
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.<br><br><br><br>
The song is "Takin' Care of Business" by BTO<br><br><br><br>
BTW: 1vegan... thanks for bringing back this thread <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I can tell you what they say in space<br><br>
That our earth is too grey<br><br>
But when the spirit is so digital<br><br>
The body acts this way<br><br>
That world was killing me<br><br>
That world was killing me

An oldie:<br><br><br><br>
*** *** ***** ** ****,<br><br><br><br>
No one ever cared if I should live or die<br><br><br><br>
Time and time again the chance for love has passed me by<br><br><br><br>
And all I know of love is how to live without it<br><br><br><br>
I just can't seem to find it<br><br><br><br><br><br>
So I've made my mind up<br><br><br><br>
I must live my life alone<br><br><br><br>
And though it's not the easy way<br><br><br><br>
I guess I've always know

You're giving me easy lyrics! What's mine?<br><br><br><br>
BTW, if you give me any modern pop/boy-band stuff, I'll be stumped. It's that easy.
