"keep looking for something I can't get
Broken hearts lie all around me
And I don't see an easy way to get out of this"

Would be the sensational "I Just Died In Your Arms Tonight" by Cutting Crew.

(I should think of making a Spotify playlist with all the songs from these threads...)

@SimplySteveRedux Correct 👍😊

I have added to my phone playlist!

It brings on many changes
I can take or leave it if I please
The sword of time will pierce our skin
It doesn't hurt when it begins

Originally 1970s but several covers

The theme from MASH! I don't know if it has another name.

That's the M.A.S.H. song, Suicide Is Painless.

CoffeeBeansGalore Thu 20-Aug-20 18:55:55

Well done both! Suicide is painless. There was a surprising cover by The Manic Street Preachers in the 90s.

Thanks coffee.

Is this the thread with the awards ceremony?

As it's no 10 we all deserve some kind of commitment badge!

NeedToKnow101 Thu 20-Aug-20 19:05:12

I agree! Unwavering loyalty to the thread must be rewarded and awarded! Thanks for new thread @CoffeeBeansGalore ❤️

Trying to make sense of it all
But I can see it makes no sense at all


Resist, resist
It's from yourself you have to hide, oh


Every time, just like the last
On her ship tied to the mast


SimplySteveRedux Thu 20-Aug-20 19:15:41

Yes, it must. I wish I'd found these threads far sooner, super relaxing, fun, and expands my playlists! smilestarstarstarstarstar

Here they come gone 7am
Getting satellite and sky getting cable


VictoriousSockPuppet Thu 20-Aug-20 19:19:53

Coffee, you forgot to @AJumpedUpPantryBoy

SimplySteveRedux Thu 20-Aug-20 19:20:06

Strange infatuation seems to grace the evening tide
I'll take it by your side
Such imagination seems to help the feeling slide
I'll take it by your side

90s, the clock is ticking... wink

VictoriousSockPuppet Thu 20-Aug-20 19:22:19

Without you I'm nothing

shinynewapple2020 Thu 20-Aug-20 19:25:29


Your 80s one is Golden Brown The Stranglers

SimplySteveRedux Thu 20-Aug-20 19:29:31


Without you I'm nothing

That was quick! 👏

Thanks Coffee!

@VictoriousSockPuppet your 70s one is Come Up and See Me by Steve Harley and Cockney Rebel. Great song!

NeedToKnow101 Thu 20-Aug-20 20:09:34

For all my crimes
Of self defense.
Cures you whisper
Make no sense


SingingBabooshkaBadly Thu 20-Aug-20 20:11:53

Oh, I posted on the last thread before I realised everyone had moved over here. I was a bit confused because Steve got Wow about half an hour before Victorious but then Victorious said she’d got before Steve and Steve then gave Victorious Triple points.

I’m a bit bamboozled.
