Re: Name that tune

I can't get no better answer than that, though I try and I try.

Re: Name that tune

OK. I think I'll stick to hit singles from now on. That was Honey Pie from the White Album by the Beatles.

How about the following?

Can't you see I'm on a losing streak?

Re: Name that tune

Either the song is too obscure or further lyrics are needed. I'll try the latter. You became a legend of the silver screen And now the thought of meeting you makes me weak in the knee OK. Probably better to stick to singles rather than album tracks. Before I give up on this completely, it's by the ...

Re: Name that tune

Thanks Barbara. Yes, I saw Yesterday. I enjoyed it, but I wasn't mad about the ending. Not sure I could do a review without spoilers, but it reminded me how many great songs The Beatles recorded. I was going to post a couple of lines from Back in the USSR, but I did a search on this thread and found...

Re: Name that tune

Should I just go ahead and post the next one? I haven't received confirmation that that my answer is correct, but I can't imagine there's another song with the exact same words.

Funny how difficult that was without the opening and closing words and how easy it was with them! I'm a huge Beatles fan and I thought I knew pretty much all their hits, but you had me totally stumped until you expanded the quote.

Re: AUG CTC - 'Dog Days Double Double'

Justin @garageathlete has replied in double quick time (sorry about the pun, couldn't resist it :lol:). The double double refers to 2x831 and 2x318. The numbers reflect August as the 8th month and having 31 days. I assume it reflects the different date conventions used in the US and Europe. We use ...

Seems it's too obscure then, final big clue... it's not a lyric within the song, but a comment at the end of the track
Hi Steve. Hope you're keeping well. Maybe if you quoted an actual lyric from the song, we might recognise it? Just a thought....

Hi Jill

It's pretty recent. Here's the full verse.

Tell me something, boy
Aren't you tired tryin' to fill that void?
Or do you need more?
Ain't it hard keeping it so hardcore?

wow, as you say, I know the song very well but would never have guessed it from the verse. Quite odd.

Don't know yours either Paul :oops:
The line I picked is probably not that helpful. I've added the previous line.

Or do you need more?

I think that's "Dance the Night Away" by The Mavericks. One of the many songs I've butchered at karaoke over the years.

Paying a rare visit to the website to see how everyone is getting on. I'm very sad to hear that news about Dave. I met him a few years ago at Madchester and he was just such a lovely person. My condolences to his family and friends.
