Might as well.

Give me the title and artist. Then it's your turn. Wait for confirmation only if you're guessing.

"Sounds" familiar, but I'm going to need more.

"and All She Wants to do is Dance," by Don Henley.

Didn't the Eagles just do a reunion tour?

I like their old answer about when they'd never get back together.

When they finally did, the tour could only have one name,

the "Hell Freezes Over" Tour. icon_smile.gif:)-->

The "Hell Freezes Over" Tour was back in the mid-90's. They've gone out a few more times since then. I caught them last year in Boston - good show!

===========================================

And there's a girl in this harbor town

And she works layin' whiskey down

I've been uptight and made a mess,

But I'll clean it up myself, I guess.

Oh, the sweet smell of success

WordWolf: you need to clarify.

And to keep it clear: let's delete signatures on this thread if it causes confusion.

CORRECT.

The Travelling Wilburys.

Lucky Wilbury, Otis Wilbury, Charlie T. Wilbury, Lefty Wilbury, and Nelson

Wilbury. Also known, respectively, as Bob Dylan, Jeff Lynne, Tom Petty, Roy

Orbison, and George Harrison. icon_smile.gif:)--> At least, that was them in Volume One-

in its sequel, Volume Three, they were Boo, Clayton, Muddy, and Spike Wilbury.

(Roy Orbison had already passed away during Volume 1's recording.)

This band got together by accident, actually, and its goal was to have a good time.

icon_smile.gif:)-->

This was the first song they wrote.

George said to Bob: "Give us some lyrics, you famous lyricist."

When asked for a subject, "I looked behind the garage door and there was a

cardboard box with 'Handle with Care' on it."

Tom: "So we went out there to Bob Dylan's house, sat on the grass and from the germ

of an idea that George had on the guitar we wound up writing this song called

'Handle with Care.' "

(The longer story is at http://www.geocities.com/paul_82_allen/wilb.html )

So, Sharon, your turn. icon_biggrin.gif:D-->

OK~~personal disclaimer-I have the most eclectic taste in music and have been accused of being a walking jukebox~

Have you ever been hated or discriminated against? I have. I've been protested and demonstrated against.

I think a safe rule of thumb should be that the song has received

airplay on at least one standard (normal station with a real

broadcast) station at some point in history.

That having been said, I think this line is vaguely familiar.

I've either heard it or read it somewhere, possibly both, and at least

one in the past 6 months.

I have a 17-year old son so I know that little ditty is by Eminem, but I have no idea what it's called.

Calling that a "tune" is stretching the definition a bit.

Maybe, but it still ain't got no tune, and neither does anything else Eminem ever did.

It counts.

And it's up to the person who posted the question to decide if the answer is sufficient (that way you don't have to wait for me everytime there's a question).

"Never Tear Us Apart", by INXS. (Off the album "Kick", required listening back

in the 80s.)

Since I'm also certain of my answer,

here's the next one:

"Cold-hearted orb which rules the night,

removes the colors from our sight-

Red is grey, and yellow, white"

Correct.

Technically, "the spoken part" at the end is referred to as "the Long Lament",

and I would have taken that as the "correct" title as well.
