First clue - it's based on the theme from a mid 80's film (with a very famous musical score composer)

So nothing to do with The Godfather then ...

An Ennio Morricone score perhaps ?

Godfather - no

Ennio Morricone score - yes.

Jeremy Irons was the "star" in the film

OK - let's kill this one. The song is Nella Fantasia (based on the piece of music called Gabriel's Oboe from the theme to The Mission). I particularly like the Russell Watson version but apparently it was Sarah Brightman who converted it from soundtrack score to a song...

So - here's a new one that shouldn't last long:

Alright, this wasn't supposed to be a stumper.

First clue - it was a play off of Wolfie's lyrics...

Hmmm... if these extra lyrics don't give it away, I'll begin wondering if I'm suddenly living in an alternate dimension... :lol:

Is that "Walk this way" by Aerosmith and Run DMC? The lines just posted look and sound right.

Close enough! :)

The one with (part of) Aerosmith & Run DMC was the 1986 remake of Aerosmith's 1975 original from the Toys in the Attic album.

Your turn, sir!

obviously a good clue. Didn't know the lyrics, but they seemed to fit the tune 8)

We may have had this song before, but I love it so... (not a clue)
