I know the song, but I did have to google to make sure.

Leftfield Original

Plenty of videos to choose from on YouTube, but I found this live version, good to see the band, but not the best live performance I have ever seen.

Like the song though.



Snowcrash

I have some fond memories of this song and the intro still makes the hairs stand up on my neck.

Not bad for a live version and she fills the jump suit well.  :P

So, we've had the 60s, 70s, 80s and now 90s. Anyone for the naughties? Data?

I thought the jumpsuit was highly educational too  ;)

Ahh! the naughties, yeah there have been a few songs that grabbed my attention.

This one:

Blue, blue, blue,
waves they crash,
as time goes by,
so hard to catch.

Data

I couldn't leave this one unsolved so here is the answer:

Gabriella Cilmi - Sweet About Me


Snowcrash

Has this thread died a death or does that mean back to the 80s?

Anyone is welcome to put up any lyrics they like. I'll leave it until someone else starts again.

Well Snowcrash, you should know better than anyone that nothing actually dies, it just changes it state of being.

Anyhow, some more lyrics for your delectation:-


                                                            The whole things lost,
                                                            I don't know why,
                                                            You have to laugh,
                                                            Or else you'll cry.
It WILL be fine !...

Data

I have the tune going round in my head, yes I do know this one, but who was it and what was the song called.

No can't remember :'(

Snowcrash

I've had the same feeling since reading the lyrics.

All I can come up with is
You have to live or else you die.

Being the next line ish.

In a ska stylie?
"I cannot remember the books I've read any more than the meals I have eaten; even so, they have made me."

Ok, the next line's are

                                                                     You have to live
                                                                     Or else you'll die

I believe this was a one hit wonder, although I could well be wrong there, however, a local group, to me anyway.

Bit fishy this one isn't it. ;)

It WILL be fine !...

Snowcrash

I've been to the pub wiv me mates and we can all sing this song but no-one can come up with the band so... I googled it.

The Piranhas - Tom Hark a Brighton band but if you watch, the original is by 'Elias and his Zigzag Flutes' from 1958



and the lyrics are...
                                                            The whole things daft,
                                                            I don't know why,
                                                            You have to laugh,
                                                            Or else you'll cry.

My go. How about...


I don't advise
And I don't criticise
I just know what I like
With my own eyes.

Sometimes.

Now I have heard it I remember the song.  There was no way I would have remembered the band though. :scratch-head:

Snowcrash

No guesses for these lyrics then. Added next line at the bottom.

I don't advise
And I don't criticise
I just know what I like
With my own eyes.

Sometimes.

If you know what I mean.

Not wanting to spoil the fun I didn't reply to this one, yes I knew it.

Odd though, after listening to the video its not how I remember the song at all, it's like the video is not the same mix or something.

Maybe just me.

Depeche Mode - Clean

Data

Well I spent a few hours trying to come up with some lyrics, then eureka...

You wont get this one  :LOL:

          Mouldy old dough
          Mouldy old dough

          Mouldy old dough
          Mouldy old dough

Diesel

Oh, how I remember this one. Early Seventies, TOTP.

The main reason I remember this so clearly is because I would alter the Lyric's to include my Sisters name, for which, I earned myself a thorough Beating and destroyed a metal waste bin with just the use of my back as well.

Happy Day's. ;D

Anyway, here you are

                                  
It WILL be fine !...
