Re: Name that tune

:shock: The great Aretha Franklin ... I know, I know - blasphemy, heresy, etc... :) She was a little before my time as I'm a child of the late 70's & 80's. That, and I'm not very sophistimicated... :D Anyway, here's the next clue. If you read/sing with the right tempo, this could be a dead giveaway...

Re: Name that tune

Wolfie, I don't know that tune, so I have to say "No" though it may have similar lyrics to the song I'm posting... :) I know you folks know this tune, so I'm going to keep the clues coming... Artist is from the UK, and currently active (per Wikipedia, though I rarely hear of the artist anymore). The...

Re: Name that tune

I've got a couple different ideas on how to go about with the clues. I've decided to go slightly unconventional. The lines are sequentially correct, but neither is entirely complete.

Put on a little make-up...

Sorry Ron, The Weight is a different song by the same band.
I'm not surprised, I didn't have a lot of confidence. 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:

Re: Name that tune

And sorry, I do that all the time with this song - I meant "The Weight"!!

The lyrics talk about "take a load off", and I don't recall hearing "weight" in there, so I always go to "The Load" first.... LoL...

Re: Name that tune

Peter, is this "The Load"? I watched "The Band" documentary a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it though I'd (ashamedly) never heard of them before that! In reading your clues, I almost guessed "The Load" by "The Band" earlier, but had no confidence in my prowess.

Re: AUG CTC - 'Dog Days Double Double'

I assume it reflects the different date conventions used in the US and Europe. We use day-month-year, they use month-day-year. So 318 = 31st of August, 831 = August 31st. Take it from an Indiana boy - it's all true. Interestingly, the company I work at recently switched enterprise software vendors ...

Re: Name that tune

Actually, we would love to see your cool clues; either post them here or PM us. :D Mostly written for humorous effect, I may have exaggerated the coolness a bit, but I was formulating a plan if it became another hard-to-guess title - First, I was going to bracket the chosen lyrics with the lyrics o...

Re: Name that tune

Why would I want this back? Anyway, I immediately said to myself, "self, that sounds like John Denver". I can think of more lyrics, but not the title.

"When you wake up in the morning and the light is hurt your head The first thing you do when you get up out of bed Is hit that streets a-runnin' and try to beat the masses" Uh-oh - that may have rung a bell somewhere in my brain... but what really knocked me out were those Cheap Sunglasses - ZZ Top

Re: Name that tune

Another Pleasant Valley Sunday I watched a YouTube video and have no recollection of ever hearing this song, though I regularly watched The Monkees when they were on TV, so I probably did at some point. "When you wake up in the morning and the light is hurt your head" This sounded really familiar u...

Stevie Nicks, Landslide. ('till the landslide took me down).
I'm gonna let you slide on naming the wrong artist since it's not required by board rules...

Okay, "wrong" is a little strong - she wrote it and sang it, but it's a Fleetwood Mac song. :)

Welcome back to the game, Peter!

Well, it looks like no one is hip to Cage the Elephant. :) I hesitated to post the song, but I like it and thought if I posted from the chorus, someone would surely nab it.
