First one to start off.

So tired of broken hearts and losing at this game
Before I start this dance
I take a chance in telling you
I want more than just romance

You look good in green, coffee

I don't think this got guessed from the last thread (apologies if it has)

In the stars I see your eyes
They come to me all the time
? Back to me now
In they come slow down

Calls her man the great white hope
Says she's fine, she'll always cope

80s, and so is the previous one

ProseccoBubbleFantasies Sun 28-Jun-20 10:58:36

How come you tell so many lies?


Honeyroar Sun 28-Jun-20 11:08:02

I’ve turned a girl into a heaving senseless wreck
Made the captain of a ship dance off his deck
I’ve made an old man jump to his feet

@ProseccoBubbleFantasiestbe 80s one is Woman in Chains by Tears for Fears

The 70s one is the wonderful Come up and see me.

CoffeeBeansGalore Sun 28-Jun-20 11:19:24

Morning all!
Thank you @ProseccoBubbleFantasies 😊
Correct @xsquared

Could taste your sweet kisses
Your arms open wide
This fever for you is just burning me up inside

1980s (plus a version in the 90s)

That one is I drive all night by Cyndi Lauder 80s and Roy Orbison 90s. Loves the video with Jason Priestley and Jennifer Connolly.

Honey's one is the beat but I don't know the singer.

secretmeetingsundertrees Sun 28-Jun-20 11:54:44

babooshka's from the last thread was from bowie's queen bitch

Honeyroar Sun 28-Jun-20 12:03:28

@Iggi999 correct. It was by a one hit wonder called The Look.

Honeyroar Sun 28-Jun-20 12:07:33

And with that feeling
We were willing
To take a chance

Woke up today, looked at your picture just to get me started
I called you up but you weren't there and I was broken hearted

I've got one:

I should have known better than to let you go alone.
'Cos times like these, I can't make it on my own.

Honeyroar Sun 28-Jun-20 12:35:34

Honeyroar Sun 28-Jun-20 12:37:08
