That's the song.

I thought it was Beatles first (and McCartney written) and covered by Marmalade.
Yep - I may have got that the wrong way round😁

Sounds Bon-Jovi-ish or Guns and Roses - not a clue about the song title.

Re: what training have free spirits been doing today?

Today was 12x300m with 1min rest 1.55.5 r21. After high reps on the weights. Today was a new start for my training. Bought some ...

Re: Name that tune

No takers yet?
I'm surprised Wolfie hasn't got it yet
Some more lyrics then:

"All day long, I think of things
But nothing seems to satisfy
Think I'll lose my mind
If I don't find something to pacify"

Thanks Dave, it was actually me at BIRC, was going to remove my top, but the glasses were sufficient! You are closer than me. 77.8kg before my CTC, although that is over 1kg in a month, so might make it back to lightweight this season if I keep the rowing up! Will be a bit tougher for me - I will h...

Okey-Dokey - this one doesn't appear in my thread search is is from one of my all-time favourite film soundtracks... "And all the leaves on the trees are falling To the sound of the breezes that blow" It's a bit difficult to pull lines that aren't either too big a clue or are too obscure ...
