Well then, Shreck.

Now, was there music in those movies? Never saw them that I remember, so someone else will need to finish this one.

Correct about Shrek, and yes, there was a theme tune in the first movie.

Opening lines:
"Somebody once told me
The world is gonna roll me
I ain't the sharpest tool in the shed
"

So no takers - it seems like my musical tastes differ from that of the rest of the forum :fsbgrin:

Anyway - the track is "All Star" by Smashmouth, from the Shrek movie.

Someone else feel free to post a new tune.

No takers yet? Is everyone having the problem that I have - every song I think of has already been posted. :shock: Mostly by me! :oops:

Here, however, is a new one:

"With a thrill in my head and a pill on my tongue"

For reasons I can't figure, this song has been stuck in my head all morning and although used as a guess once, wasn't (I believe) one of the actual songs used:

Plumy, I certainly did not intend to upset you, and I was certainly not upset myself. However, Lynyrd Skynyrd might have been upset. :lol:

OK. Like plummy’s last song, this one has never featured before, but it has been guessed as a possible answer.

Second line from that verse.

At first I thought it a dream that I was in.
Lost, lost in a sea of glass and tin.

Also, a clue. It’s a lesser known song from a very well known singer.

OK, here’s the full verse.

At first I thought it a dream that I was in
Lost, lost in a sea of glass and tin
But no, so dipping my hand in the back of my jeans

Before I give up on this, here’s the opening verse minus the last two words, which are the name of the song.

A light shone in the night some way ahead
Blue turned into green, then it was red
And stirring the night, love music played
The light I saw in the night was a … …


The singer was an American singer-songwriter whose greatest success came in the 1960s and who died in the late 1989s.

Paul, although I do not recognise the song and you haven't said if the singer was male or female, I'm going to go for Roy Orbison?

Roy Orbison is correct, Jill! As nobody has guessed the song, I think you should put up the next one. https://www.google.ie/url?sa=t&rct=j&q= ... MUa9xDiuVB
