Human, I'm pretty sure that WW was saying that he believed you guessed the right song and then looked up the title, which was fine.  It was you who suggested that that might be cheating.[/quote]

 

FWIW, I don't think I've ever HEARD of "Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite."  Was it just an album cut, or did it actually get airplay?  (If it didn't get airplay, then

WW technically cheated.)  :wink2:

George

George interpreted what I said correctly.

This song DID get airplay.  It still gets airplay on classic rock stations.  It's not the most famous Beatles song, but it's not exactly "Blue Jay Way" or anything.

So, Human's turn.

It was played on album oriented stations so that counts. I remember it I just can't think of the song right now

Don't know the title but then I never did like the stones to much. unless it was covered by Flying Burrito brothers also which would make it dead flowers but I think that's another song.

Once beneath the stars, the universe was ours. Love was all we knew, and all I knew was you. I wonder where you are, I wonder if you think about me Once upon a time, IN YOUR WILDEST DREAMS. It mig

I appreciate the concern George but he did ask.  Anyway,

It's a track from Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band but I would think that the song got airplay as it is on one of the  most popular Beatles albums.  All the songs got a lot of airplay.

Here's a song.

Could we have kippers for breakfast
Mummy dear, mummy dear
They got to have 'em in Texas
'Cos everyone's a millionaire

I'm a winner, I'm a sinner
Do you want my autograph
I'm a loser, what a joker
I'm playing my jokes upon you
While there's nothing better to do

Don't you look at my girlfriend
She's the only one I've got
Not much of a girlfriend
Never seem to get a lot

No, it's not Frampton but I think you have the right group because they did a popular song almost by the name "The Obvious Song" but that's not this song.

I get "the Obvious Song" confused with some other song a lot, as titles go. 

Hm.  If it's NOT Frampton, it's someone I confuse with Frampton..... um,  SUPERTRAMP!    The band is Supertramp.  This song is probably off "Breakfast in America". 

*thinks*  Is this SUPERTRAMP  with THE LOGICAL SONG?

(If not, I'm stumped.)

WordWolf you definitely have the group right it's the name of the song that you need to come up with.  This is not the Logical Song.  And, you are right again with the album being ~Supertramp'~s Breakfast in America.  Both  of these songs we are discussing are on that album.  I've got a few more lines if that helps?  Hint*  Its a trick title.

Take a look at my girlfriend
She's the only one I've got
Not much of a girlfriend
Never seem to get a lot

Take a jumbo across the water
Like to see America
See the girls in California
I'm hoping it's going to come true
But there's not a lot I can do

Could we have kippers for breakfast

They got to have 'em in Texas

She cried to the southern wind
About a love that was sure to end
Every dream in her heart was gone

Bad dreamer, what's your name?
Looks like we're ridin' on the same train
Looks as though there'll be more pain

And it's rainin' all over the world
It's raining all over the world
Tonight, the longest night

She came to me like a friend
She blew in on a southern wind
Now my heart is turned to stone again

And it's rainin' all over the world

Raining all over the world

Raining all over the world
Tonight, the longest night.

You gotta save me, girl
When I'm ready for save
Oh, I'm fool for you
You know that real that
Go on and save me.

Can you feel what you're doin'
To me now?
I'm on the run again
You gotta save your soul...

Was there a song called "Roadies"?

George

Um, not exactly, AFAIK.

The only song I know that mentions the roadies was Jackson Browne's  "The Load Out Song. "

"Now the seats are all empty.  Let the roadies take the stage.  They're the first to come and the last to leave, working for that minimum wage...."   

It's a simple song, and the piano melody feels a little like the melancholy of an empty theater after a successful show.

 

As for this song, it's not ringing any bells.

Next song.

 

"I'm all out of hope.
One more bad break
Could bring a fall.

When I'm far from home
Don't call me on the phone
To tell me you're alone.

It's easy to deceive.
It's easy to tease,
But hard to get release."

"I spend so much time
Believing all the lies
To keep the dream alive.

Now it makes me sad,
It makes me mad at truth
For loving what was you."

"When you hear the music you make a dip
Into someone else's pocket then make a slip.
Steal a car and go to Las Vegas. Oh, the gigolo pool.
Hanging out by the state line,
Turning holy water into wine,
Drinkin' it down, oh.
I'm on a bus on a psychedelic trip,
Reading murder books, & trying 'ta stay hip.
I'm thinkin' of you. You're out there so
Say your prayers.
Say your prayers.
Say your prayers."
