I'd do anything for loveAnd I would do anything for love, I'd run right into hell and back, I would do anything for love, I'll never lie to you and thats a fact. But I'll never forget the way you feel right now - Oh no - no way - I would do anything for love, But I wont do that, I wont do that, anything for love, I would do anything for love, I would do anything for love, But I wont do that, I wont do that. Some days it dont come easy, Some days it dont come hard Some days it dont come at all, And these are the days that never end. Some nights you breath fire, Some nights your carved in ice, Some nights your like nothing I've ever seen before, Or will again. Maybe Im crazy, But it's crazy and it's true, I know you can save me, No one else can save me now but you. As long as the planets are turning, As long as the stars are burning, As long as your dreams are coming true - You better believe it! - That I would do anything for love, And I'll be there until the final act - I would do anything for love! And I'll take a Vow and Seal a pact - But I'll never forgive myself if we dont go all the way - Tonight - I would do anything for love! I would do anything for love, I would do anything for love, But I wont do that, I wont do that... I would do anything for love, Anything you've been dreaming of, But I just wont do that... Some days I pray for Silence, Some days I pray for Soul, Some days I just pray to the God of Sex and Drums and Rock 'N' Roll. Some nights I lose the feeling, Some nights I lose control, Some nights I just lose it all when I watch you dance and the thunder rolls. Maybe I'm lonely, And thats all I'm qualified to be, There's just one and only, The one and only promise I can keep. As long as the wheels are turning, As long as the fires are burning, As long as your prayers are coming true - You better believe it - ! That I would do anything for love! And you know it's true and thats a fact, I would do anything for love! And there'll never be no turning back - But I'll never do it better than I do it with you, So long - So long - I would do anything for love, I would do anything for love, I would do anything for love, I would do anything for love, But I wont do that, I wont do that! I would do anything for love, Anything you've been dreaming of, But I just wont do that... But I'll never stop dreaming of you Everynight of my life - No Way - I would do anything for love, I would do anything for love, I would do anything for love, But I wont do that, I wont do that! Girl : Will you raise me up? Will you help me down? Will you help get me right out of this Godforsaken town? Will you make it a little less cold? Boy : I can do that! I can do that! Girl : Will you hold me sacred? will you hold me tight? Can you colorize my life I'm so sick of black and white? Can you make it a little less old? Boy : I can do that! I can do that! Girl : Will you make me some magic, with your own two hands? Can you build an Emerald city with these grains of sand? Can you give me something that I can take home? Boy : I can do that! I can do that! Girl : Will you cater to every fantasy that I've got? Will ya hose me down with holy water - if I get too hot - ? Will you take me to places that I've never known? Boy : I can do that! I can do that! Girl : Afert a while you'll forget everything, It was a brief interlude, And a midsummer night's fling, And you'll see that it's time to move on. Boy : I wont do that! I wont do that! Girl : I know the territory - I've been around, It'll all turn to dust and we'll all fall down, And sooner or later you'll be screwing around. Boy : I wont do that! I wont do that! Anything for love, I would do anything for love, I would do anything for love, But I wont do that, I wont do that., no i won't do that

Tie a yellow ribbon "Round the old oak treeI'm comin' home, I've done my timeNow I've got to know what is and isn't mineIf you received my letter telling you I'd soon be freeThen you'll know just what to doIf you still want meIf you still want meWhoa, tie a yellow ribbon 'round the old oak treeIt's been three long yearsDo ya still want me?If I don't see a ribbon round the old oak treeI'll stay on the busForget about usPut the blame on meIf I don't see a yellow ribbon round the old oak treeBus driver, please look for me'cause I couldn't bear to see what I might seeI'm really still in prisonAnd my love, she holds the keyA simple yellow ribbon's what I need to set me freeI wrote and told her pleaseWhoa, tie a yellow ribbon round the old oak treeIt's been three long yearsDo ya still want me?If I don't see a ribbon round the old oak treeI'll stay on the busForget about usPut the blame on meIf I don't see a yellow ribbon round the old oak treeNow the whole damned bus is cheerin'And I can't believe I seeA hundred yellow ribbons round the old oak treeI'm comin' home(Tie a ribbon round the old oak tree)

The Wreck of the Edmun FitzgeraldThe legend lives on from the Chippewa on downOf the big lake they call Gitche GumeeThe lake, it is said, never gives up her deadWhen the skies of November turn gloomy.With a load of iron ore - 26,000 tons moreThan the Edmund Fitzgerald weighed emptyThat good ship and true was a bone to be chewedWhen the gales of November came earlyThe ship was the pride of the American sideComing back from some mill in WisconsonAs the big freighters go it was bigger than mostWith a crew and the Captain well seasoned.Concluding some terms with a couple of steel firmsWhen they left fully loaded for ClevelandAnd later that night when the ships bell rangCould it be the North Wind they'd been feeling.The wind in the wires made a tattletale soundAnd a wave broke over the railingAnd every man knew, as the Captain did, too,T'was the witch of November come stealing.The dawn came late and the breakfast had to waitWhen the gales of November came slashingWhen afternoon came it was freezing rainIn the face of a hurricane West WindWhen supper time came the old cook came on deckSaying fellows it's too rough to feed yaAt 7PM a main hatchway caved inHe said fellas it's been good to know ya.The Captain wired in he had water coming inAnd the good ship and crew was in perilAnd later that night when his lights went out of sightCame the wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald.Does anyone know where the love of God goesWhen the words turn the minutes to hoursThe searchers all say they'd have made Whitefish BayIf they'd fifteen more miles behind her.They might have split up or they might have capsizedThey may have broke deep and took waterAnd all that remains is the faces and the namesOf the wives and the sons and the daughters.Lake Huron rolls, Superior singsIn the ruins of her ice water mansionOld Michigan steams like a young man's dreams,The islands and bays are for sportsmen.And farther below Lake OntarioTakes in what Lake Erie can send herAnd the iron boats go as the mariners all knowWith the gales of November remembered.In a musty old hall in Detroit they prayedIn the Maritime Sailors' CathedralThe church bell chimed, 'til it rang 29 timesFor each man on the Edmund Fitzgerald.The legend lives on from the Chippewa on downOf the big lake they call Gitche GumeeSuperior, they say, never gives up her deadWhen the gales of November come early.

Who's that? :confused: :p

Toto were a group of session musicians who decided to form a band and cut an album together.It was so successful they put out another one, The song Africa was from their second cut.I'm surprised you never heard of them as they were HUGE! They had other hits like "99" and "Hold the Line" was their breakthrough hit in the late 70'sI saw them in concert in 1977 and again in 1982

Not meaning to pick on you Timm, but "Candle in the Wind" and "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" and "Tie a Yellow Ribbon" were all 70's songs???There sure were a good number of tunes from the eighties though! That music will never be done again as it was a different time. Todays music has so little to say?Eighties music had intelligent lyrics and had social or political connotations. That song mentiond earlier about "Sun City" was an anti-Aparthied song against the South African Government (great tune by the way)Bands like Tears for Fears looked into topics like child abuse, U2 talked about suicide, and of course "VIDEOS" had just arrived in the mid eighties creating a new medium to present this artform. Peter Gabriel, Dire Straits, Art of Noise and numerous others took this artform to a new level.Its sad that today the music video channels (MTV and Muchmusic) don't play much of the "Typical" videos anymore. Their hours are filled with reality shows like Flavo-Flav (or whatever the heck his name is?) and Gene Simmons show or Ozzy........Waste of time if you ask me?????????????

I get lost, in your eyes And I feel my spirits rise And soar like the wind Is it love that I am in? I get weak in a glance Isn't this what's called romance? And that's what I know Cause when I'm lost I can't let go (Chorus) I don't mind Not knowing what I'm headed for You can take me to the skies It's like being lost in heaven When (and) I'm lost in your eyes I just felt Don't know why Something is there We can't deny Ooh, when I first knew Was when I first looked at you And if I Can't find my way If salvation Seems miles away Oh, I'll be found When I'm lost in your eyes (Repeat Chorus) I get weak in a glance Isn't this what's called romance Oh, I'll be found When I am lost In your eyes.

The devil went down to GeorgiaHe was lookin' for a soul to stealHe was in a bind 'cause he was way behindand he was willin' to make a deal When he came across this young mansawin' on a fiddle and playin' it hotAnd the devil jumped up on a hickory stump and said,"Boy, let me tell you what. "I guess you didn't know itbut I'm a fiddle player, too.And if you'd care to take a dare,I'll make a bet with you. "Now, you play pretty good fiddle, boy,but give the devil his due.I'll bet a fiddle of gold against your soul,'cause I think I'm better than you." The boy said, "My name's Johnny,and it might be a sin,but I'll take your bet, you're gonna regret,'cause I'm the best that's ever been." Johnny, rosin up your bow and play your fiddle hard,'cause hell's broke loose in Georgia and the devil deals the cards.And if you win you get this shiny fiddle made of goldBut if you lose, the devil gets your soul... The devil opened up his caseand he said, "I'll start this show."And fire flew from his fingertipsas he rosined up his bow. And he pulled the bow across the stringsand it made an evil hiss.Then a band of demons joined inand it sounded somethin' like this. When the devil finished, Johnny said,"Well, you're pretty good, old son,but sit down in that chair right thereand let me show you how it's done." Fire on the mountain. Run, boys, run.The devil's in the House of the Rising Sun.Chicken in the bread pan pickin' out dough.Granny, does your dog bite? No, child, no. The devil bowed his headbecause he knew that he'd been beat.And he laid that golden fiddleon the ground at Johnny's feet. Johnny said, "Devil, just come on backif you ever want to try again.'Cause I told you once, you son of a gun,I'm the best that's ever been."

The Power of LoveThe whispers in the morningOf lovers sleeping tightAre rolling like thunder nowAs I look in your eyesI hold on to your bodyAnd feel each move you makeYour voice is warm and tenderA love that I could not forsake(first chorus)cause I am your ladyAnd you are my manWhenever you reach for meIll do all that I canLost is how Im feeling lying in your armsWhen the world outsides tooMuch to takeThat all ends when Im with youEven though there may be timesIt seems Im far awayNever wonder where I amcause I am always by your side(repeat first chorus)(second chorus)Were heading for somethingSomewhere Ive never beenSometimes I am frightenedBut Im ready to learnOf the power of loveThe sound of your heart beatingMade it clearSuddenly the feeling that I cant go onIs light years away(repeat first chorus)(repeat second chorus)

Yes I remember that song. Quite forgetable as you said.Tonight I was cruising in the Bronco and it has a cassette player still, so I dug deep into the console and guess what I found?Scritti Politti! They were kind of cheezy, but one song reminds me of Vice called "Pray like Aretha Franklin" Has a good beat and sounds very typical of the Vice era. Very dance oriented...
