Next tune ...

"I really love your peaches"
Steve, is it The Man From Del Monte? :fsbgrin: :fswink:
:lol: :lol: :lol:

I don't think the man from Henley in Arden is going to say yes.
I thought you two were just Joking around, 8) , but it seems that Paul was right and Wolfie is not responding. :shock:


Actually, I immediately recognized the band, and started singing some of the lyrics, but did not remember the actual title until I played it from my songs on the computer. That does not really disqualify me, but I still prefer the wait for more clues and a successful ID.

Ron already correctly named the tune. #-o

That's alright, my wife's taught me the basics of being ignored over the last 30 years or so... :D

Thank you Plummy - this was one of those rare occasions when I recognised the lyrics straight away. I wish to state, that as an ancient headbanger, I am not and have never been a fan of Mr Jones. :lol:

Listening to this on my rowing iPod this morning and as I now have a hair appointment for next week, 💇🏼‍♀️🎉 thought these two lines were rather apt. :fsbgrin: :fswink:

And a parting on the left
Is now a parting on the right

It sounds like the cadence of Mambo No 5, but I don't recognise those particular lyrics.

That's because it's not the song - A little bit of brain power is what you need :fsbgrin: :fswink:

Definitely not. :shock: :lol:

Richard recognised the lyrics straightaway and said ( laughing ) " I can't believe that no one has recognised them. Who are these people? " :lol: :wink:

More clues then:

I definitely recognize the first set of lyrics, but not the second. I just can't find a rhythm for the words I'm seeing...

These are the opening lines of the song. The opening synth riff and then guitar riff is very recognisable. There is also another clue ... which hasn't been picked up on.

Would the clue be Richard’s question, if we were to remove the question mark?

Yes it would. Still need to ' name that tune ' though. :fsbgrin:

In football parlance, I think my contribution counts as an assist. Or I could be really pedantic and say that the correct title is Won’t Get Fooled Again.
