Just the opening bars were used in the late 80s/early 90s I am sure but what is the song please? They played Belle Stars on the radio yesterday and it has been driving me mad ever since

It's Sign of the Times

RockStockAndTwoOpenBottles · 28/09/2011 23:22

But I can not think of anything else with that opening riff, it will now annoy me.

I don;t understand the question?? Confused

I hate that song though, hated the group

crazynanna · 28/09/2011 23:24

Thankyou Rock Smile
No sorry,never heard of it.

StealthPolarBear · 28/09/2011 23:31

piece of more to come
time to be alone

really upbeat ... not to be confused with Prince's wailing song of the same name

OliviaMumsnet · 28/09/2011 23:31

Lol at pls hum it!
The riff at the beginning (not the weird talking!) was sampled in another song. Late 80s poss early 90s??
I can't remember the song, can anyone help?
I am wondering if it was Shakespear's sister?

You would if you heard it for sure. 1983/4 it was.

StealthPolarBear · 28/09/2011 23:31

(vote for me on X factor)

RockStockAndTwoOpenBottles · 28/09/2011 23:32

I'll have a look.

OliviaMumsnet · 28/09/2011 23:32

Oi polar bearGrin! Dont dis Prince on my thread!!

Are you sure Olivia? Because whenever I hear it I always assume it is another song (rock song or something) before it gets going, and then I realise what it is. The start doesn't really fit.

StealthPolarBear · 28/09/2011 23:33

Oh dear...are you going to change it so your posts are highlighted in purple rather than blue?
I like when doves cry and erm...a couple more. But that's it. He is mediocre at best.

OliviaMumsnet · 28/09/2011 23:37

Omg at mediocre at best (makes notes in mnhq ledger)

May get tech to highlight me in purple, though!!! GrinGrinGrinGrin

I think is it the middle of you're history by Shakespeare sister which I cAnt link as bf on iPhone!!

I now have something else in my head but I can't tell you if its what youre looking for because I cant grasp it clear enough to even hum it. Its a bit more tune-y guitar though
And then I seem to go into mega city four which I can't get out of my head even though I know its nothing to do with it

StealthPolarBear · 28/09/2011 23:40

StealthPolarBear · 28/09/2011 23:40

RockStockAndTwoOpenBottles · 28/09/2011 23:43

Yep, definitely You're History
