Re: Name that tune

Thanks for the smile, Ron. Not that surprising you do not remember the song, since it was about 10 years before you were born!

Good luck with your next choice.

Re: Name that tune

It appears that no one here has heard No Chemise, Please. Oh well.

This one I am sure someone will (eventually, perhaps) recognize.

Re: Name that tune

As Ron has noted, I do not like letting this thread lay dormant for more than 2 or 3 days. Unlike the Name That Film thread that has not had a post in 28 days. So, as promised, here is the entire chorus: "No chemise, please, not for me, please Well you can take back the sack, leave it hangin' on the...

Re: Name that tune

I said that this was from my formative years. Upon further reflection, I am not sure how much I knew (or know) about women's fashions. Maybe my knowledge started and ended in 1959? Part of the chorus, more of the chorus on Wednesday unless someone rescues me before then. "Well you can take back the ...

Re: Name that tune

Thanks Wolfie. I tried to search now, but apparently the words in the title are too common to search for. #-o So, we will assume that this was the first time for that tune. 8) Next, something from my "formative years", i.e., old !

Re: Name that tune

I think we may have had this recently, but I did not check. In any event, it sounds like "25 or 6 to 4". Ron, I do not think you should consider it the Americans' fault when we do not understand what the Brits are talking about. :twisted: And, it is still much easier when they are writing rather tha...

Re: Name that tune

Paul Victory posted an easy song, on the thread he originally started, and no one wants to name it. I gave everyone a fair chance.

Paul, "Your Song" by Elton John.

Re: Name that tune

I am tempted to say the original was by the Band, but since Paul V. is sitting across the table from me, I will not say anything.

Re: Name that tune

Paul, I agree that it is easy. I did not post 8 hours ago, since we will be away, and did not need another turn. So l decided to take what I need and leave the rest. :lol:

Re: Name that tune

Paul, yes twice. Correct title and originally by The Animals.

Never having heard of Santa Esmeralda, I just listened for a bit. Not horrible, but I am amazed you could recognize the lyrics from the video version I saw!

Re: Name that tune

Enjoy your cruise. We have a few in the future, but you would not consider them "ships"; no merry-go-rounds, no horse riding rinks, no mountain climbing. :lol:

Anyway, I hope this is an easy song to name, since

Re: Name that tune

Wow! In an instant I knew the song and the name (to paraphrase). Mostly. #-o

I think "no more love on the run" is part of the lyrics, rather than the title, which I think is Caribbean Queen.

Was it by Billy Idol?

Re: Name that tune

No - it's something to do with crying like "all cried out" or "all cry out loud" - just can't remember it properly. Plummy, I apologize, I must have missed this post while replying to Wolfie. :oops: The song is "Don't Cry Out Loud", or, by Shirley Bassey, "We Don't Cry Out Loud". Choose something I...

Correct, it can't be. :lol:

Elkie Brooks did cover the song, as did Shirley Bassey (and others), but the original was by Melissa Manchester.

Sorry Ron, I thought about posting more yesterday but got distracted. I am fine, thanks.

So now, right here on this "stage", more lyrics. ( =D> =D> =D> ) (The audience goes wild!)

Don't know that I know the song "Lately", so no kicking today. [-X

The new one sounds like "The Chain" (I think that is the title) by Fleetwood Mac.
