Ha! I finally know this one.

Long Cool Woman in a Black Dress

The Hollies.



:D

My contribution... should be easy?????

Deep in the darkest hour of a very heavy week,
Three Earthmen did confront me, and I could hardly speak.
They met me in a hurry, they left me tired and sore,

Gonna have to give this one some time or pass it on to rwhen. Don't think I've heard it before. Lyrics sure are mystifying. Care to try for my previous selection ?
I'll post the video Tuesday if no one can get it right.

Tooks.....I don't know yours but something about questions comes to mind. I don't know the name of the group or title.

Ninui....I am still stumped on your last one as well.

So. Either one of you can post a new one, Ninui would be first I suppose. Or we give a bit more time for Tooks to get a proper guess posting.

Well, 'questions' is half of the title, rwhen!

Ninui can go next with a new one if we are all stumped.

Ninui wrote:Took a little while but I'm going with "Working Man" by Rush

"Got no time for
explanation, got no time
to lose.
Tomorrow night your sleeping
underneath the moon ......"


It is one of my all time favorites. Reached #6 on the U.S. charts. The Tremelos were to record it as a single but didn't do so. They kept it as an album cut. So here's the video as promised.
Hope you like it. Will be back to post a new one soon

Okay I'm back. If you want me to post next guess I will do so with this one:

" She's got something that
moves my soul and she knows
I'd love to love her"

Ninui already posted a lyric in her last post...


Okay I'm back. If you want me to post next guess I will do so with this one:

" She's got something that
moves my soul and she knows
I'd love to love her"


I will have to ponder this one. hmmm....

Temptation eyes lookin' through my my my soul.....Temptation Eyes, Grass Roots.

I knew the line was the first line of a song that I knew well and had to keep letting it roll around and then...BANG there it way. Good choice.

I'll let you confirm Ninui before I post another option.

Okie doke....okay Tooks be sure to chime in if you know....and Ninui too and anyone else that might stop by on the thread.. :)

I've been around for you
Been up and down for you
But I just can't get any relief...
I've swallowed my pride for you
I've lived and lied for you
But you still make me feel like a thief...

I think you might know the song....fits in ours and as it turns out Ninui's age wheelhouse as well....here is a bit more....

[b]You got me stealin' your love away
because you never give it...
Peeling the years away
and we can't relive it....
I make you laugh
and you make me cry[b]

I can't do more or I give away the title of the song.

Sorry. Still have no idea without looking it up. Must have been an album cut that was never released on 45 or just regional. Can post answer if Tooks is stumped as well then post another. :wink:

Okay that one was Time for me to Fly by REO Speedwagon. Huge hit for them. But it is old, I think off their first album.

Here is another...

Drove from Paris to the Amsterdam Hilton
Talking in our beds for a week...
The newspapers said
Say what ya doin' in bed
I said we're only tryin' to get us some peace....
