Name that Tune


Recommended Posts

"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:)-->

Oh, the sweet smell of success

and this is "Handle with Care" by the Traveling Wiburys (sp???)


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.


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-->

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.

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"

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.
