Name that tune

Post by Paul Victory » Fri Apr 26, 2013 10:23 pm

Listening to my iPod tonight, I figured it was time for a new thread. Set out a line (or less) from a song and whoever gets it first sets the next one. I'll start:

And the painting you stole from Picasso

Only one rule; no googling.

Haven't a clue, but it sounds like something that either Lonnie Donegan or George Formby would sing.

Did someone say "Stairway to Heaven"?

For some reason, this version with the Leningrad Cowboys and the Red Army Choir cracks me up. The hair? The outfits? The Choir? The sunglasses? I'm not sure.

The only one I've recognised so far is Stairway to Heaven. Whose idea was it to start this thread, anyway? :fswink:

Maybe if we restricted it to hit singles, we might have more people recognising the tunes. Ideally from the 1960s, if I'm going to have any chance of recognising them. :lol:

I confess that I don't know.

I will say that the lines I put up are from Vlad the Impaler by Kasabian.

OK, my favorite lyrics are for "The Trees" by Rush. But as that would be way too obscure, try an easy one ...
