Paul, to quote the Animals: Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood :fsbgrin: :fswink:

Still over to you then. Thank you. :)

Thank you Paul.

It's my late brother's 74th birthday today and even after 37 years, he is still so loved and missed. A special man.

He was a fan of this group and this was his favourite song:

Is "aargh" your final answer? :lol: :lol:
I'm afraid that's incorrect

some more lines :

"So, what do you do?

No, I haven't heard your band
'Cause you guys are pretty new"

The last verse is

Don't let yourself down
Don't let yourself go
Your last chance has arrived
Best, you've got to be the best
You've got to be the best
You've got to change the world
And use this chance to be heard
Your time is now

An English band of 3 members who met in a seaside town in Devon
Toured the world, very LOUD put on a great show, we saw them twice at Wembley stadium in 2007 2010
The title of this track involves a pretty insect and a form of awful weather
Any help ??
