We just left Delphi, Greece, but the Oracle was not there, so I had to get the song on my own.

Close enough - "Refugee" by the late, great Tom Petty.

You're up , Peter.

Thanks Paul.

I searched the thread, and can't believe I did not use this before. 😳

I presume that's a reference to misheard lyrics for Tiny Dancer by Elton John?

The cadence sounds like "Hotel California", but not sure of the words.

No, not that, Peter. Not any song by The Eagles.

I'll post a clue in a day or so.

Not quite a day (maybe a quarter of a day?), but I'll post a clue as to the identity of the artists.

Long established British band, still going strong after a long career.

Paul, since reading this thread yesterday, my brain has been telling me, " You know this, you know this ...? " and I have been telling my brain, " I know that you know that I know this. " Apparently ... so thank you for the timely clue. :)

I am sure you know more.
Hopefully you do, since you got me thinking along this line. :fswink:

Sticking with Glen Campbell, I see! Gentle On My Mind.

Reminds me of the Blues Brothers - we do both kinds of music here, Country AND Western.

Lots of country/soft rock songs are classics!

Paul, I thought it might be devious rather than obvious, but it did not fool you.

If you try for a Glen Campbell trifecta, I will not give anyone a hint. :^o

Or perhaps something from the Blues Brothers? :mrgreen:
