Is it a song that someone has already identified on here?

I think it's the as-yet unanswered #13.

I'm almost certain you said wonderful things about it during our legendary chinwags...!

Ah....so you have that one identified, too!  (As I told Graham, I'll remove the limit tomorrow)

While that is one of my favorite songs, it is not all that high on my list!  Good guess, though!  ;)

Hello again, Paul!  :)

Your answer for #13 is correct!

...and I'm genuinely stumped as to what the 'all-timer' is here (so I don't know your musical tastes that well, eh?!!)


You do know my musical tastes...but I think the reason this one stumps you is because it wasn't a big hit.  In fact, it just barely scraped the Top 40.  :D

In that case, your 'fave' must be the man left standing...everything else seems to be mainstream to a degree...

Still doesn't help me tho'...!!

So unless Doc 'knows' it (har! har!), how 'bout a clue, or several...?

Thanks a lot, Paul!  >:(
OK, I jumped the gun and threw out the wrong title by the correct band. We've all made mistakes here, we just don't laugh at each other about them. Unless you're like Howard and the guess is really absurd!  ::)

Who knows, I just might figure it out yet!
