Line one rings a bell (not the others) as maybe Shallow by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper

As I can't usually think of what to use for lyrics I just take lines from whatever is on the radio at the time I read the post (as long as it's something vaguely well known). So here goes with the latest:

She's a very kinky girl,
The kind you don't take home to mother

As a first clue, these are the opening lines

Time for some clues for this super-easy one... :D

Originally released in 1967 by an American singer-songwriter and received a somewhat tepid reception. However, was remade in 1983 by an English pop band and hit #1 in the US and UK (and others).

Not Eurythmics... here's some more lyrics...

All I can do, I've done
But memories won't go
No, memories won't go
....
I was wrong,
Now I find,
Just one thing makes me forget

83, English pop band, cover of a US song ... so band guesses, Soft Cell, Depeche Mode, Human league (don't think they had a hit with a cover), Duran Duran (ditto). Two of the lines remind me of U2, but they are Irish of course. Yes, I'll be kicking myself on this one...

The band has not been named yet, but here's another (giveaway) clue.

Try reading the lyrics with a reggae beat in your head... :)

Thanks Ron - like a few others, I spent days wracking my brain over this one.

Here's the next one :

And quickly he's subdued"

arrgggh, Brummie (local) band too!! I know why I didn't recognise it though. I really, really, really, didn't like the song at all! So obliviously shut it out of my brain :D
