Here we go you lovely lot, Thread 11.

Post some lyrics of a song 70s, 80s, 90s (boundaries may be slightly pushed either way). State the decade & we will try to guess Artist(s) and song.

Baby seems we never ever agree
You like the movies
And I like T.V.

In this life, long and hard though it may seem,
Live it as you'd live a dream.

Thanks coffee.

Left over from the last thread:

It's easy to
Lay down and hide
Where's the warrior
Without his pride?

We're gonna move real good - yeah right
We're gonna dress so fine - ok

I found you again

Dressed up to the eyes
It's a wonderful surprise
To see your shoes and spirits rise

Early 1990s.

midgebabe Sun 06-Sep-20 22:19:38

I thought that pain and truth were things ghat really mattered
But you can't stay here with every single hope you had shattered


midgebabe Sun 06-Sep-20 22:21:42

You have the right to food and money
Provided of course you don't mind a little investigation, humiliation

80s I suspect

OfficiallAnAwardWinningPoster Sun 06-Sep-20 22:22:05

I hope you have a lot of nice things to wear
But then a lot of nice things turn bad out there.

Oh baby baby it's a bad world

I can't wear this uniform without some compromises
Because you'll find out that we come in different shapes and sizes
90s (just)

Reporting in.

I'm so sorry I missed awards night, and thank you so much for my award. I'll reveal why I have a broad spectrum of music. My parents were twats and so I learned to play a synth keyboard in my room. This progressed to piano in school. It was a trip to a certain island that sealed the deal. I've written and remixed a lot of music, some of which did very well and hit the charts/clubs. Gave it up at onset of disability aged 30. I still do bits of production and remixing on my tablet. Music has saved my life, and I often communicate through song lyrics as I lack the eloquence and vocabulary, along with the massive shield around me. I won't be cut loose, bereft, crying in soulful pain.

And not been around much as my wheelchair was stolen (thread about it in AIBU), and disability kicking my butt.

So, whose lyrics shall I check....

(I love these threads, truly, madly, deeply).

That was my idea of a lullaby years ago

Midge is the 3rd one know your rights by the clash?

First on is the cure. Friday I'm in love
