Re: Name that tune

Peter, I do not recognise the lyrics but from your generous clues, is it a song by The Faces?

This next one has become sort of my theme song (unfortunately). Or at least the chorus has.
Guessing again but could it be I wish I knew when young what I know now or something along those lines?

Re: Anyone had any PBs recently?

Lesley, you have every reason to be proud of your latest achievement, especially as it’s already faster than your PB of six years ago. :) =D>

Wishing you every injury free success with your sub2 500m attempt and your sub8.30 2k attempt. :) 8)

Out of interest, what DF do you use for sprints?

Thank you Jan. :) At school, although I enjoyed playing and taking part in various sports, indoor rowing will always be my favourite. I hope too that I can keep going and not waste precious opportunities. After all, who knows how much longer I have before Old Nick comes to claim me … 😈 :fsbgrin: :fs...

Peter, I'm stuck on Bill Withers and Lovely Day although I know it's not that. Possibly, several songs begin with When you wake up in the morning? As for a misspent youth ...

Lesley, thank you for your words of encouragement. :) I still have a tendency to be over cautious - think ‘ sloth speed, warp factor 1 but give it a little longer and I might actually hit warp factor 3. :lol: Joking aside, although it’s still a slow process , I have put far too much time and effort ...

Re: Name that tune

Peter, could the band be The Monkees?

If correct, then apart from the show's theme song, I can only remember the title of two others: Last Train To Clarksville and I'm a Believer.

Re: Name that tune

Jill inspired the choice by using 'Message in a bottle' by the Police. On that one there is a very long fade out with "sending out an SOS" repeated many times. The very final one of those, and the volume has to be turned right up, is "sending out an ESSO Blue". True. Thank you Steve, I never knew a...

I am being a bit dim with regards to the ' Esso Blue ' reference, even though I'm ancient enough to remember the advert: Boom. Boom. Boom. Boom ... Esso Blue. :fsbgrin:

Re: Name that Film

Peter, if you look up Paddington Bear on Google all will be revealed.

I did check out certain details about the film before putting up my original post.

Here are a few of the main facts:

Distributed in the UK ( 2017 ) by Warner Bros, then worldwide ( United States 2018 ).

Re: Name that Film

Another line:

Put your paws in the air.

There is one particular scene in the film where some people, myself included, had to dab their eyes with a tissue. :cry:
