Right, there is a ropey old 70s song called Torn Between Two Lovers , I think sung by Mary someone.
Also 'You've Got to be a Hustler If You Want To Get On' - another 70s novelty about being a gold-digger mistress.
Also, Barbara Dickson - Another Suitcase in Another Hall
And a real horror called I've Never Been to Me by some twat called Charlene

Hmm, now Performing/Singing: how about the Theme from the Muppet Show
Life Is A Cabaret by Liza Minelli
Stars by Dubstar
Waking Up by Elastica

how about From Paris To Berlin where the woman keeps going on about being hungry?
I Eat Cannibals by toto coelo

INterior design, ooer:
The Bed's Too Big Without You by The Police
Breaking Down the Walls of Heartache (I know this as a Dexys Midnight Runners B-side but I think the original might have been done by Smokey Robinson)
WIndow by Flintlock

(these are all getting a bit ludicrously tenuous, please tell me why you need these songs and I might be able to do better...)

harpomarx · 17/06/2008 22:18

yes, please tell Merlin.

s'not fair if you don't!

Merlin · 17/06/2008 22:19

Thank you madamez.

I am putting together a CD for a group of friends and in amongst all the usual tunes am trying to put ones which are specific to each person.
