I thaought of an interesting little competition: guess the Finn related song based on the initials of each word. The letters will be consecutive to add difficulty (Unfortunately there is no evil laughter graemlin!) For example "try to catch the deluge in a paper cup" cup would be TTCTDIAPC. See if you can decipher this one and create some of your own. Oh, and please make life a little easier for our moderaters and don't post ones that spell out swear words. Razzer
I'll give you a small hint. It's Crowded House. Good luck!

"Look at the ocean and tell me it's not blue."

Original Post
"No time no place to talk about the weather...."

Private Universe!

I had in in four letters.....does that make me dorky? Wink

Also from Together Alone, but not the whole song, just an adequate sample:

Whoops! Sorry about that. That's my fault there. I thought that would be an adequate sample of lyrics, but I realised this afternoon whilst listening to the very song that I took the above line from that I'd made a slight mistake in it. Red Face

It's meant to be:


If anyone still needs a tiny hint, let me know. Smiler
I think Finfan deserves double points for getting the bridge of DS because looking back, that might have been harder to work out then was originally intended.

Seem to favour Crowded House in this topic because the latest one is:

"It Was Good While It Lasted..."

Time Immemorial!

This is what one gets for reacting to the better half's current obsession with a certain series of films by listening to Crowded House. Eeker Wink


"... And A Woman Shedding Tears For A Man Locked In Prison... When The Two Locked Eyes And For A Moment I Was Taken..."

Everything Is Good For You!

Yeah, that one was rather hard to decipher. It was the "LEAF - Locked Eyes And For..." that gave it away. Cool

On to the next, and be careful with this one:

You're doing great Finfan, but I know what you mean. I can't seem to think about anything else until I find the answer Razzer. Might let somebody else have a go at this one or it will take over my weekend. It is a great game though.

Have a good Easter!!
This ones REALLY tough, and I've just gone over all the Crowded House lyric sheets I have Confused... so I deduce that this is either:
A) a split Enz song that Crowded House play live, or
B) From Intriguer, the only CH album I don't have, aside from the Recurring dream live disc.

Can you give us a clue And I Know That I Love You...?
When I was a young boy...
How on earth did I not get that one? (kicks self, as predicted)
I thought it was going to be a Neil song because all the songs so far were either Crowded House songs or Split Enz songs written by Neil.

Anyway, my turn!


(Finally, able to submit my own challenge! Big Grin)
I've never looked at this thread before Red Face

Skin Feeling.

I like the smell of that shop
I like the way it serves me
I like the pigment in your skin
I like the way it moves me

Does this mean I've got to come up with something else? I'll get my daughter on to it - doubtless this will mean some obscure Enz song Wink
Right you are vicarious! The song was indeed Skin Feeling! Thought that And You Know That I Love You... was going to finally figure out how close "I love the smell of" was to the opening line of Skin Feeling, but I was wrong! Now onto a new challenge without knowing if it's a Enz or Crowdies song... this could take a while...

well done cc, welcome to the forum Smiler
of course it's ok to hop in ( only if they're easy clues) Big Grin

Thankyou, AYKTILY.

clanlesscaracal is the aforementioned daughter. She may - may not - have chosen an obscure Enz song, after all . . . . up to you to find out Wink

that was written, I'm thinking too hard now, oh well back to it... Smiler

It was late last night (Geddit?? Big Grin ) when I typed my last post: should have read May OR may not.

Apologies for any inadvertent misleading (not that you're any the wiser now . . . . Wink)
OK CC, my mind is about to implode, I really don't want to look up lyrics on the net, I prefer to nut it out, which I have been doing in between sneezing my lungs up(or that's how it feels anyway..) with a flu, so can you tell me if it's the older stuff for or not Roll Eyes
Don't worry you're mum wasn't misleading, I've two littl úns and can't remember when I last actually lead anything.. Big Grin
[QUOTE]Originally posted by And You Know That I Love You..:

your daughter has a remarkable work ethic

Eeker Confused

"daughter " and "remarkable work ethic" . . . . never thought I'd see those 2 things in the same sentence Wink

I think she's enjoying the feeling of power Smiler

I'm backing out of this challenge now - leave you two to get on with it.
Enz then I take it... couldn't believe that I didn't get "In The Lowlands", it's one of the darkest and haunting, yet peaceful songs I've ever heard. And take heed of the warning aFINNity, I ended up checking the site every 2 minutes to see if I had the right lyrics.
