Good to know I can still amaze people. :oops:

I am not sure why I was thinking about this song, but putting it here should get it out of my head. I hope. ](*,)

Sorry Ron, I thought about posting more yesterday but got distracted. I am fine, thanks.

So now, right here on this "stage", more lyrics. ( =D> =D> =D> ) (The audience goes wild!)

"Baby cried the day the circus came to town
'cause she didn't want parades just passin' by her"

No - it's something to do with crying like "all cried out" or "all cry out loud" - just can't remember it properly.

Correct, it can't be. :lol:

Elkie Brooks did cover the song, as did Shirley Bassey (and others), but the original was by Melissa Manchester.

Plummy, I apologize, I must have missed this post while replying to Wolfie. :oops:

The song is "Don't Cry Out Loud", or, by Shirley Bassey, "We Don't Cry Out Loud".

Choose something I might know, because I will be closer to you next week :mrgreen: (in Ireland).

I'll put a whole verse in as I need this to go quickly as I'm away for a week from tomorrow (so actually Peter, as you get nearer to where I am now, I'll be moving further south - port by port! (nothing personal :-) ) ):

I lose my cool when she steps in the room
And I get so excited just from her perfume
Electric eyes that you can't ignore
And passion burns you like never before

Wow! In an instant I knew the song and the name (to paraphrase). Mostly. #-o

I think "no more love on the run" is part of the lyrics, rather than the title, which I think is Caribbean Queen.

Was it by Billy Idol?

Bon Voyage. Which ultra mega giganto ship will you be on?

You have the song - and almost the artist (it's Billy Ocean). but the title is what counts.

Explorer of the Seas this time (first time on this ship) - Royal Caribbean (see, there was even a link to the song there too!)

Enjoy your cruise. We have a few in the future, but you would not consider them "ships"; no merry-go-rounds, no horse riding rinks, no mountain climbing. :lol:

Anyway, I hope this is an easy song to name, since

Don't Let me be Misunderstood - sadly the version I remember is by Santa Esmeralda :oops: :oops: .

Was the original by the Animals?

Paul, yes twice. Correct title and originally by The Animals.

Never having heard of Santa Esmeralda, I just listened for a bit. Not horrible, but I am amazed you could recognize the lyrics from the video version I saw!
