Fred, although I'm not a knight in shining armour and Peter is certainly not a damsel in distress, I am going to do my best to ( hopefully ) save him. :fsbgrin: :fswink: Is it ' She's not there ' by The Zombies?

You absolutely saved him. Years later the song was also done by Santana but personally I definitely prefer the original version.

Thank you Fred. :)

Let's see how this one goes:

But I couldn't find a way
So I'll settle for one day to believe in you

More clues me thinks.

British-American rock group formed in London in 1967.

First verse minus the last line:

If I could turn the page
In time then I'd rearrange just a day or two
Close my, close my, close my eyes
But I couldn't find a way
So, I'll settle for one day to believe in you

For all you cockneys out there, this is the truth and I am not telling ' porkies '. :fsbgrin: :fswink:

Times up. It was ' Little Lies '. ( by Fleetwood Mac )

This is a Golden Oldie which I hope everyone will know. [-o<

I think the next line is ..."I'm the one you need"...
But I can't quite place the title or the singer, driving me mad!!

It’s not “Walk Under Ladders” is it?
Maybe that was just the album.

Despite picking out the previous bits of information, I'm not going to get the title, sorry.

It was "Drop The Pilot".

I'm having a bit of an op tomorrow so someone else is welcome to step in with the next one - maybe you Wolfie because you were nearly there on this one

Didn’t see you post until just now Plummy.
Lying in bed this morning I had a flash of inspiration at 06:46 and “Drop the Pilot” finally came to me! I said it was driving me mad 😊
Happy to put the next one up, good luck with the op Dave.

What went wrong, with our love?

I know it's the next lyric and not the title. :twisted:

And good luck Plummy! [-o<

Not headed out yet and just checked in. Is this Del Shannon - Runaway?

If correct, someone else can chuck another one up.. :-)

If the lyric were "but I like it" rather than "and I like it", I would have said Only Rock And Roll.
