Well done Dave, one of my favourite Prince songs that one  :thumbsup:

DaveMorton

It was one of my favorites at the time, certainly. It's funny, because I recognised it in less than 5 seconds, but the only reason it dawned on me that that was the song was because before I had actually read the words, my subconscious grabbed the words and started playing the song in my head. It was all very surreal because I saw the post, began to read, then heard the song immediately. I wondered why that song was playing when the rest of my brain caught up and the metaphoric light lit. :D

I'll try to think of a good one. Stay tuned! :thumbsup:

Oops? I had forgotten it was my turn again. Silly me! I don't know whether this will be a challenge or not, but here it is:

Once we were standing still in time,
Chasing the fantasies that filled our minds.

the song is rather old, but there have been some covers that were also popular, so there's that. :)

Oh, and bonus points if you can tell me the movie it came from. :P

Racking my brains but I'm struggling with this one.

Would it help to know the artists who performed it?

Freddy

Would a couple more lines give it away ?

DaveMorton

Probably, but it's worth a try.

Nope still don't know it  :LOL:

DaveMorton

Ok, final hint: There were three female artists who performed the song. They were:

1.) Thelma Houston
2.) Diana Ross
3.) Mariah Carey

I honestly didn't think this would be that difficult. :-\ :)

This one was bugging me, I cracked and Googled it  :@-computer:

No points for me  :(

Should have known it, it's a nice little tune that I find myself singing to from time to time.

Theme from the film Mahogany.

Do you know where you're going to ? Original Thelma Houston


DaveMorton

You are, Sir, quite correct. It was a bit more of a challenge than I had thought it would be, so my bad, but it's a lovely song. I'll try to present something easier on my next turn. :thumbsup:

I would not have got that despite knowing the song.

DaveMorton

Sorry for that, Freddy. With as popular as Diana Ross was, back in the day, I reckoned that this would only be a moderate challenge. Well, live and learn, I guess. :)

I'm not complaining, no need to say sorry, it's all part of the game  ;D
