Hello! Checking in. I’ll try to post a few too, I was so distracted throughout the last thread.

Is Rogue going to bring over all the unguessed ones from the previous thread?? 🤣


dexterslockedintheshedagain Tue 13-Jul-21 21:31:05

I hope so! It's bad enough flicking back and forth on that same thread, let alone between two different ones!

RogueMnerHidesUnderABigHat Tue 13-Jul-21 22:14:24

Hi guys.

Thanks for the thread, coffee.

Yes, I'll copy over the ungot ones later.

There's a disappointingly large quantity of them.

You're all losing your touch. Some incredibly easy ones.

Yep, same here @dexterslockedintheshedagain.
I got a couple, but I’ll wait til they’ve been copied over now.
Hope you guys are all okay, guess we’ve all been pretty busy, as I’ve noticed we all haven’t been on as much lately 😘😘

Yeah probably @midgemagneto.
Weather is nice the next few days, so maybe another lull …

Hi all. Thanks for new thread Coffee. Looks like I missed a lot!

So, I put up a few lyrics on the last thread. These ones are still outstanding.

But, I did put up quite a few, and I haven't finished going through the whole of the thread yet. So some of these might have been guessed (I'm pretty sure 2 or 3 were). But it's late now, and I need to go to bed.
And I wanted to leave you with stuff to guess.

If there were any that were got on the last thread, I shall be SCRUPULOUSLY fair in the point allocation.

All 80s unless otherwise stated:

RogueMnerHidesUnderABigHat Wed 14-Jul-21 00:27:07

On the silverscreen
He melts my foolish heart in every single scene

90s hit, but much older track.

No reason, just seems so pleasing


I'll take you down, I'll take you down
Where no one's ever gone before

Won't you come see about me?
I'll be alone, dancing, you know it, baby

See I've already waited too long
And all my hope is gone

Misjudged your limits
Pushed you too far
Took you for granted

Straddle the line in discord and rhyme

Oh, my child
You got so much
You're gonna take away my energy

Don’t say what you mean
You might spoil your face

(love that lyric!)

Like a birthday or a pretty view
But then I'm sure that you know it's just for you

RogueMnerHidesUnderABigHat Wed 14-Jul-21 00:27:40

I kiss the morning goodbye
But down inside you know
We never know why

In a sore afraid new world
[I’m sure I thought that line was and they saw a brave new world]

In fact, here's just another ordinary day

And be careful of what you do 'cause the lie becomes the truth

Let 'em say we're crazy
I don't care about that

Then your jive will swing (aah-ahh-ah)
It Ain’t What You Do (It’s the way that you do it), Bananarma – midge. But who sung it with them????

MENSA membership conceding
Tell me why and how are all the stupid people breeding


Sits alone and bends his cane
Same old backsides again

Give me more
Than one caress
Satisfy this

RogueMnerHidesUnderABigHat Wed 14-Jul-21 00:28:02

Okay, one time for mama, everybody!

If you jump into your bed
Quickly cover up your head

A hit many times, I think. Possibly endlessly. But the first one was 70s

Seems so unfair when there's love everywhere but there's none for me

I think this has been a hit for about 5 or 6 different people across several decades.
but as I consider the song woeful, and hate every version, I don't even care.

Name them all and get no points anyway!

I heard the mission bell

And now you really gotta burn it up

Chicas to the front

Well, you can dress me in your mirror
Give me kisses forever and a day yeah

My eyes are black and lifeless
With an underprivileged stare

Can you read my mind can you see in the snow

Academic inspiration, you gave me none
But you were Michael the lover
The fighter that won

RogueMnerHidesUnderABigHat Wed 14-Jul-21 00:28:27

They just know
They're so sure

hmmm. Not sure about the timing for this one

You said forever
And then you went and changed your plans

My feet don't hardly make no sound

And it's starting to feel good, hey
All right now
And it's starting to feel good

His lips are dry, his heart is gently pounding
Dexter guessed Don’t Stand So Close To Me by the Police. Both wrong!

When she left I was cold inside
That look on my face was just pride
No regrets, no love, no tears

Mix em and cook em in a pot like gumbo
Goin off on a motherfucker like that
With a gat that's pointed at yo ass
So give it up smooth

Oh, I appreciate you're busy
And time is not your own
Yeah, maybe it would be better
If I telephoned

Run along to school,
No child of mine grows up a fool,
Run along to school.

Some guys excite me but don't invite me.
They don't even notice
It seems
I'm always waiting
I long for the man of my dreams.

You said you'd die for me
Woke up to reality
And found the future not so bright
I dreamt the impossible
That maybe things could work out right
I thought it was you
Who would do me no wrong

Crazy ladies keep 'em on the run.

There's no comfort in the truth
Pain is all you'll find
