STRANGE, although the lead singer is buried in Paris, this song was apparently on the charts only in the US, Canada, and New Zealand.
Sorry PEOPLE, I didn't check before posting. #-o

You guys are correct. Wolfie was first. =D>

I do not know why I am not getting notifications. I apologize for the day delay. We are sitting in the Newark airport now, and I will try to both get the notifications working and not grab the song choice again too soon.

OK, done a little bit of research on this one.
Although we've had the band before, not the song. Charted high in both the UK and US.

Sounds like the type of pretentious lyrics that U2 are so fond of. But the song doesn't ring any bells and it's probably not by U2 in any event.

Thank you Steve.

You will need to go back a few years for this one.

Steve, well done to Mrs.Smith :) =D> - Elvis did sing the song although he didn't write it. The idea came to me for this tune after seeing something that Richard was wearing. :-k Mmmm ... :lol:

Peter! As if I would associate with someone who wears Blue Suede Brothel Creepers. :shock: [-X :lol: When it comes to shoes, Richard always knows his own mind … and only ever buys something stylish which I have chosen for him. If he picks out a pair that I consider unsuitable, he then gets the ‘ Look ‘ . :lol:

There is a price to pay for your mischievous comments. It’s your turn. :lol:

I hope that you and Ann have a great holiday. :)

Thanks Jill, but NO. I specifically did not name the tune, and thus, do not qualify for the next turn. [-(

I do not want to choose a song no one can identify! (See my statement on Feb 13 that I would not claim the song choice again too soon.)

Thanks for the holiday wishes. Hopefully, we get to land on that British island possession - Tristan de Cuna.

ps: Maybe someone will still come up with the correct full song title.

If you want to be let off the hook, I'll be happy to step in. I think the title of the song is Blue Suede Shoes. If I'm wrong, you can slander my name all over the place!

Hook? What hook? I did not see any hook!!!

But, as far as I am concerned, Paul, you have the next choice.

Paul, I hope that your back has been showing signs of improvement.

Paul, I am sorry that the situation hasn't improved with your back.

Is this The Sound of Silence ?

Another song from my rowing play list:
