Thank you Peter, I can now go ahead with a clear conscience and I hope that you are having a wonderful holiday.

This shouldn't be too difficult, especially if you are a Baby Boomer.

And don't try to dig what we all say

Felton, Ann and I may be being influenced by our last night cocktails on board, but we both said "White Wedding ".

Right back to where it should have been

All the first verse:

Here comes my happiness again
Right back to where it should have been
'Cause now she's gone and I am free
And she can't do a thing to me

I think that's "Dance the Night Away" by The Mavericks. One of the many songs I've butchered at karaoke over the years.

You are correct Paul. I thought this would go in minutes as it was such a massive hit.

Thanks Plummy. I was surprised to see that it took over two weeks before it was recognised.

Ain't it hard keeping it so hardcore?

wow, as you say, I know the song very well but would never have guessed it from the verse. Quite odd.

Don't know yours either Paul :oops:

The line I picked is probably not that helpful. I've added the previous line.

Or do you need more?

Just watched the video. I don't believe I've ever heard this song in my life - sitting here in the middle of Indiana, USA.... :D

It's catchy though!

Hi Paul. :)

Struggling with this - is it something recent ( in which case ... Help! :lol: :wink: ) or is it something from a while back?

Hi Jill

It's pretty recent. Here's the full verse.

Tell me something, boy
Aren't you tired tryin' to fill that void?
Or do you need more?
