Was these at 7, very stressful.

My outstanding's , doubt anyone will get these two (blame NtK 🀣)

"I found a lover for the first time in my life,
You took me out of the wilderness,
Just like a diamond, you were shining bright through the night
And let me stay in your arms to rest"

90s, one of my favourite trance tracks, from the Golden Age.

"Chaste faded days
With eyes that cannot see
I want to feel it again washing over me
Discover all of you
One moment at a time
Taste smell secret sell
Your soul it touches mine"

90s too, another favourite although I dislike how the artist sold out for commerciality and money compromising artistic integrity in the process. But this, this is a classic. Bonus point for the vocalist.

WhipperSnapperSteve Thu 31-Dec-20 12:47:09

(I'll preface this by saying that there are three total rap songs I like, two by this artist and the other by Eminem (Stan))

"Come on, come on
I see no changes, wake up in the morning, and I ask myself
Is life worth living, should I blast myself?
I'm tired of bein' poor, and even worse I'm black
My stomach hurts, so I'm lookin' for a purse to snatch"

Massive clue in the lyrics , late 90s.

And something easier:

"Close your eyes, make a wish
And blow out the candlelight
For tonight is just your night
We're gonna celebrate,
All through the night"

90s, Soul.

Well Done Whippersnapper for going through with it. Hope it was as successful as it could have been. Now you can relax!

Thank you for the new thread, Coffee. Gorgeous dog pic in the last thread. (I kept away so I didn't get drunk and dreadfully misbehave again!). BUT, you are obviously a cruel dog owner... That poor pooch CLEARLY needs a bigger chair. You are neglectful not to provide one!

If you're not SUPER nice to me on this thread, I'm going to dob you in on The Doghouse boards. They're an unforgiving lot!

ClearingSpaceOnTheTrophyShelf Thu 31-Dec-20 15:36:50

With apologies to anyone who's bored or this, or anyone who's a newcommer, here are some un-got ones from me from the other night.

In all cases we're looking for 3 songs and the name of the album they were on. I've tried to make BOLD where there are gaps.

If you want more lyrics in order to guess the songs, just say. Or if you're just bored of these now, I'll let them fade away, as 2020 itself is fading, to become a distant memory....

Where's a warrior
Without his pride?
Dog Eat Dog

You cut off his head, legs come looking for you
Ant Music

But deep inside Geronimo is tearing me apart
I've seen him in the streets
And I've seen him in the pictures

Adam and The Ants – Kings of the Wild Frontier
(I think Willow was suggesting this was the name of the 3rd track. It isn’t, but it is the name of the album)

ClearingSpaceOnTheTrophyShelf Thu 31-Dec-20 15:38:21

The trenches dug within our hearts
And mothers, children, brothers, sisters torn apart
Sunday Bloody Sunday

And so we're told this is the golden age
And gold is the reason for the wars we wage

Beat on black, beat on white
Beat on everything don't get it right
Beat on you, beat on me, beat on love

U2 - War

ClearingSpaceOnTheTrophyShelf Thu 31-Dec-20 15:39:11

And they whispered into your brain
They set you on the treadmill
Candle in the wind

I'm not a present for your friends to open

My sister looks cute in her braces and boots
A handful of grease in her hair

Elton John - name of album?

ClearingSpaceOnTheTrophyShelf Thu 31-Dec-20 15:41:05

Ooh, I just know that something good is gonna happen
I don't know when

It breaks the cage, and fear escapes and takes possession
Just like a crowd rioting inside
(Make me do this, make me do that, make me do this, make me do that)
Am I the cat that takes the bird
To her the hunted, not the hunter?

Is there so much hate for the ones we love?
Tell me, we both matter, don't we
Running Up That Hill

Kate Bush – Cloudbusting
Come on @FlouncingBabooshka. This one's been up twice!!!

ClearingSpaceOnTheTrophyShelf Thu 31-Dec-20 15:41:54

Oh, why can't we talk again?
Hanging on the Telephone

What I find is pleasing and I'm feeling fine
Love is so confusing, there's no peace of mind
Heart of Glass

All I want is 20-20 vision
A total portrait with no omissions
Picture This

Blondie – Name of Album???

All the songs got, but no one know the name of this classic album?
