Seeing as I got more posts in my APOD thread by asking what the background music was, I thought I'd startup this thread and see where it goes.

Here's the first one...

Am I the half of half and half,
Or am I the half that's whole.
Got to be one with all my halves,
It's my worthy earthly goal.

This one is fairly obscure from 1983. No googling the lyrics you cheats.

Whomever guesses right has to do the next one. Just pick a fav from your youth.
"I cannot remember the books I've read any more than the meals I have eaten; even so, they have made me."

Ralph Waldo Emerson

I somehow think I should know this, and I think it rings a little bell but without a google I don't think I'm going to get it.

Snowcrash

I puposely picked one I thought you wouldn't get.

I'm pished and it's 1:35 am and I'm not giving it away yet.

3 points available for band/song/album.

I will give 1 of these away PM sunday after I sober up. Go on and google it and see if you're any the wiser.

All spelling mistakes due to red wine.

The song title is 'Clay'. Shall I reveal all and do an easier one?

I got it from google.

Ok, how about this one:

Zoo time is she and you time
The mammals are your fav'rite type
You'd better want her tonight.

Tell me Data which version do you require?, the original by Sparks, or, the cover version by The Darkness.

For me it has to be the original:-

                                              This Town Ain't Big Enough For Both Of Use.

Ok, so this should be very easy, but, full title please.

The clouds were afraid one ten in the shade and the pavements were steaming.
It WILL be fine !...

Diesel



USE, or US even. Sorry, Dyslexic keyboard I'm afraid!!!.
It WILL be fine !...

Snowcrash

It's your turn now Diesel!!

I never knew they were the lyrics. I knew the song, of course.

If you'd put...
Heartbeat, increasing heartbeat.

I may have got it.

Here's the vid for those who are wondering what we're talking about or just want to hear it.

I refer back to my last but one, post.
It WILL be fine !...
