|This song is different from all the others in the quiz. Do you know why?
"Isn't it a shame when a man loses all direction
Ain't it just the way to lose your soul
Isn't it a shame when a love won't make a connection
And you've seen love on a better day.
Your wasted dreams your broken heart
Those never ends and started starts
Your star that shone so high and free
The glory days that let you be."||Big Country - Identify Song From Lyrics
Dreamboy. Sung by Tony Butler the bassist (that's what's different), at the Stuart Adamson Tribute concert. Needless to say Stuart could not sing it, he'd hanged himself in Hawaii in late 2001.
We all wish him well and godspeed and thank him for the songs.
|This song on the other hand is just as good without the music.
"[Song Title] will you show to me
The bond between the land and sea?
For I am new to mystery
I want everything laid out for me."||Big Country - Identify Song From Lyrics
Teacher. If I'd said the song title in the lyrics it would give the answer away...
|I wanted to reproduce more of this song but its title (or titles) would have appeared too often. (Is that a clue?)
"And you may fight or you may run
For what was fast is now undone."||Big Country - Identify Song From Lyrics
13 Valleys (Broken Heart). Their other song "The Longest Day" is very similar to "Broken Heart". I recommend both if you haven't heard them before. The former was written for a movie with the same name.
|Can you tell me the name of this one?
"I've seen too much of what fighting has done
I've seen too much anger and I've seen it far too young
And talk will come to nothing while the shouting still goes on
But we are only singers and too many songs are sung."||Big Country - Identify Song From Lyrics
One Great Thing. If you ticked one of the wrong titles don't feel bad, I still get them mixed up with "One Great Thing" because they all have such similar themes!
|Personally I like this one's anology about El Dorado and I hope you do too:
"I know there is no need for what's been done
I know there is enough for everyone
Frustration brings a heavy hand to bear
And there's never been a hand
Did we ever have it good?
While we lived in El Dorado
Did we find the gold we should?"||Big Country - Identify Song From Lyrics
Just A Shadow. That is a cleverly written classic, I must say. Pity when it comes to music one doesn't normally pay attention to the lyrics unless the music's so memorable one decides to look up the lyrics. (I find that to be the case, anyway). And Big Country's lyrics normally take a bit of thinking about.
