Written By: Paul on 11/05/04 at 1:30 pm

Okay Karen, I'll confess...I cheated...

Not via Google (goodness, no...!), but browsing down the artists that have already been answered I thought to myself, 'What 'J' act hasn't been mentioned yet?'

And knowing your musical tastes, the answer sort-of hit me...but even then, I had to fish around for the file that I downloaded just to check...

#12. 'Three Times In Love' - Tommy James (one of your favourites, if memory serves...)

No problem at all, Paul.  I wouldn't consider this cheating, as you got the song in mind and then played it to verify...

And you are right in that it is a favorite of mine.  Good memory!  ;)

Don't kill it just yet Karen...

From the clue and a bit of deduction (which is how I conjured up Tommy James...), I'll bite the bullet and say the artist is Journey...

...but what the song is, I haven't a clue - anyone?

If there's still no answer by the time I escape from work, I'll slap the 'Greatest Hits' on...

You're good, Paul....you're good!  8)

You are right regarding the artist...and you should indeed be able to figure out the song because it does appear on their 'Greatest Hits' album...  :)

Written By: Paul on 11/12/04 at 3:15 pm

Gottit...!!

The track is 'Send Her My Love'

...which, in all honesty, is one of theirs that I'm not fully familiar with - it is on the 'Greatest Hits' (tacked on right near the end), so whether I've played it previously as a bit of background music, I couldn't say...

Pretty good song tho'...and well done that Karen for keeping us guessing...!

That's the one...and I'm glad you got to hear the song again since it sounds like it's been a while.... ;)
