I needed the shelter of someone's arms and there you were
I needed someone to understand my ups and downs and there you were
(Versions in 60s, 70s, 90s)

@Fleamaker123 I've got that bloody song stuck in my head now, serves me right**

Could be worse . . . remember this one

Hold a chicken in the air
Stick a deckchair up your nose
Buy a jumbo jet
And then bury all your clothes
Paint your left knee green

The song is How Sweet it is to be loved by you

But I can't say who sung it at all

1980s
He knows just how you feel
The slyest rhymes, the sharpest suits
In miracles made real

Oh that’s a real song is it? I only recognised it as the song the choir does in American Pie 😆

I’ll volunteer some:

You start a conversation, you can’t even finish it
You’re talking a lot, but you’re not saying anything

Nobody has got this yet from the last thread:

Cause I'm trying to explain
Something's wrong,
You just don't sound the same.

Fleamaker123 Wed 08-Jul-20 21:42:38

grin Ah yes how could anyone forget...

CoffeeBeansGalore Wed 08-Jul-20 21:43:40

Hello @Honeyroar. Yes to both you & @shinynewapple2020. One of the 60s versions was Marvin Gaye. 1971 was Karen Dalton.

1990s

I've said goodnight
Try to sleep tight
Ah just dream of me
Go close your eyes

Honeyroar Wed 08-Jul-20 22:17:46
