Re: Name that tune

Thanks Paul.

I searched the thread, and can't believe I did not use this before. 😳

Re: Name that tune

We just left Delphi, Greece, but the Oracle was not there, so I had to get the song on my own.

"Living Like a Refugee".

Re: Name that tune

We have a winner, but first, a few announcements. Happy Birthday Ron . =D> I'm guessing that I'm recalling some of your lyrics from watching "The Last Waltz", but The Weight is the only song of theirs that I can actually (eventually) name... :D :fsbgrin: This comment made me think a bit, and I reali...

Re: Name that tune

Sorry Ron, The Weight is a different song by the same band. (And that one is Fanny and not Bessie!) :twisted: :lol:

Re: Name that tune

I thought this would be easier. :roll:

A bit more of the chorus:

"If I spring a leak she mends me
I don't have to speak, she defends me
A drunkard's dream if I ever did see one"

Re: Name that tune

We have been traveling a lot for vacation ("holidays"), but sitting in the Albany airport at 5 AM now is tough. That is what made me think of this song.

Re: Name that tune

"Rocket Man"?

Never heard of the previous song, and of the names mentioned, the only ones I know are Marianne Faithfull, James Galway, and Paul Victory! I lead a sheltered life here in the colonies. :oops:

All yours Peter...
It was really a team effort. Hope you are feeling better, Zoot.

In recognition of the 8 week inactivity on the Name That Film thread, I thought of this oldie:

Re: Name that tune

I think you are correct, Zoot. I came up with "Kansas"! #-o

Anyway, the song is either "Africa", or something with Africa and a few more words. :roll:

Re: Name that tune

Felton, for some reason this sounded familiar, so I searched this thread for "Patty Valentine". In 2013, when Paul Victory posted this song, no one knew it. The long series of hints starts on page 10.

Probably best if you choose another. :)

Re: Name that tune

"Spill The Wine" is the only thing that comes to mind, but I do not think that is correct.

Re: Name that tune

That is it, Paul.

As a follow up to how I was doing when I first posted this song, I went back in the afternoon to correct the typo. :oops:

Re: Name that tune

Good detective work Jill. =D> The lyrics to the Faces (and Rod Stewart) (and my theme) song are: "I wish that I knew what I know now When I was younger I wish that I knew what I know now When I was stronger" However, none of those words are in the title to the song. #-o If no one gives the correct t...

Well, I wish that someone would name this tune, but I knew that I have to Faces that, again, it may be too obscure.

Re: Name that tune

Thanks Paul.

This next one has become sort of my theme song (unfortunately). Or at least the chorus has.

I will give it some time, and then I have a few clues in mind.

"For love is blind and you're far too kind
Don't ever let it show"
