Ahhh thought Peter S might get this, being a sailor!

Older song. Van Morrison.

At least you did not say that I might get it, being older!

Into the misty? I never really knew or understood the lyrics.

We are sailors, but the Captain of our cruise ship is in command. We are presently at anchor off Norfolk Island in the South Pacific. It is 7:30 am Thursday and conditions are too rough to tender to shore.

Wow! Trip sounds amazing. And your guess is close enough for me, the title is Into the Mystic.

Had forgotten that song until there was a story on NPR about foghorns, and they played it to close out.

Your turn, weather permitting! :fsbgrin:

Thanks Barbara. Close is also good enough in horseshoes and hand granades!

We are sailing South for two days, bound for Milford Sound. It is getting cooler since we are sailing South :shock:

Old, old song. Following a theme you suggested.

"The one you shouldn't hurt at all."

My mistake. I apologize. It must be the time zone changes.

I misremembered Clarence Henry as "Foghorn", rather than "Frogman". Therefore, my song does not follow the (foghorn) theme, and "You Always Hurt The One You Love" is unlikely to be identified.

An easier one:

"Like a ghost from a wishing well"

For some reason my mind is now showing me Paul Rogers singing that line, so Free or Bad Company perhaps (the word 'ghost' doesn't sit well though)...
I'll guess at the eponymous "Bad Company" ?

You guys are tough. You want the actual lyrics! Okay, a bit more, with the correct word.

"Just like an old time movie, about a ghost from a wishing well."

I did not know that - and therefore I stand corrected (although actually I'm sitting at the moment to be completely pedantic :lol: :wink: )

Here I am in Wellington NZ reading about English pendants.

If you could read my mind, what a tale my thoughts could tell!

At least you both know it is not Bad Company. :lol:

I do not want to use cruise ship minutes to see if I have previously used this Canadian singer, and if no one knew then either. #-o
