Does that clue mean it's Jimmy Buffett and Marguerita Time? Not an artist I really know and a song I barely know but his passing was widely reported and the song part played a few times
Close. It’s actually Margaritaville, so I’m happy to pass the baton back to you, unless you would prefer to pass it on to Peter, who clearly knew the answer, but didn’t actually name the song.

Peter did not name the tune since Peter does not want another opportunity right now to choose a song no one has heard. ](*,)

I will try in the meantime to think of songs that would be challenging but identifiable. :-k

Peter clearly knew it and thinking about it more, my song answer was a Status Quo song! Peter is free to chuck another one in.

Number 1 in many countries, but only about number 30 in the UK. Still, you should have heard it, maybe in a movie or a commercial.

Well, congratulations Peter, that one is certainly "challenging but identifiable"!

In my head it sounds like a "power ballad" by Heart, Journey etc
First guess, "we built this city"?

Wolfie, it a solo song, and not your guess.

I should have responded sooner, but I was hoping for some magic!

More lyrics, in case that helps you, or even someone else. [-o<

And if all your hopes survive
Destiny will arrive
I'll bring all your dreams alive
For you"

I am not on first initial basis with her, but that is the correct song. :D

Also, NJ usually for us is an abbreviation for a State formerly know for the smell of burning rubber, (and a place that Plummy lived in for a while).

Peter, I'm surprised.
As a man of detail you'll know 'N-J' is totally different to 'NJ' :-)
I've been to Bedminster, NJ, on business many years ago, and met up with fellow Free Spirits Boris Z, Peter Trusio for a beer.
I digress.

New song lyric...
"The night are stronger
Than moonshine.."

I have not looked it up, but I am not sure whether Olivia uses a hyphen or not in her last names. This is probably moving from detail into minutia. :roll:

Anyway, back to your song, to quote you again

Wolfie, what are alligator lizards doing in the air?

Ann said, in response to my question "should I name the tune?" "sure!".
So, here goes.

Continuing, Ann suggested this one.

From the searches, it looks like this has been offered as a guess - but not actually used, so apologies if it's a repeat (not the first line but from the first verse):

I am not sure, since I try to not listen to his music, but this sounds like it could be from Thriller by Michael Jackson.

Also, thanks Wolfie. :wink:

A few more lines, by an artist we had quite recently here.

Got rained on too
