Ok, I'm bored, but what you have to do here is guess the song and the artiste from the lyrics below.

Da Rules:

DO NOT POST THE ANSWERS HERE cos that will spoil it for everyone else.

(Odds offered that some bozo will post answers nevertheless ;) )

Instead, jot the answers down and I'll post the answers in a few days.

Lots of honesty required, - no using search engines such as Google, anybody could do that.

After I've posted the answers, you post your score and interesting errors you made.

Deal? Ok, here we go:

1) Radio, live transmission. Radio, live transmission.

2) I picked up my bag, I went lookin' for a place to hide;
When I saw Carmen and the Devil walkin' side by side.

3) Her name was Pauline she lived in a tree
She was a no one who killed her baby
She sent the letters from the country.

4) But how do you thank someone,
Who has taken you from crayons to perfume?
It isn't easy, but I'll try.

5) What is this that stands before me?
Figure in black which points at me
Turn around quick, and start to run
Find out I'm the chosen one
Oh nooo!

6) Beam in on me baby, and we'll beam together
I know we always been together,
But there's more.

7) Yes, I've been brokenhearted
Blue since the day we parted
Why, why did I ever let you go?

8) Forward he cried from the rear
And the front rank died.

9) All this machinery making modern music
Can still be open-hearted.
Not so coldly charted, it's really just a question
Of your honesty, yeah, your honesty.

10) I went walking with my momma one day
When she told me what people say
Live your life until love is found
'Cos loves gonna get you down.
Take a look at the girl next door
She's a player and a downright bore
She's a slowzer, she wants more
Oh,bad girls get you down.

Good luck :)

Aye, understandable.

But # 10 is only about 2 years old and I thought you may have got #7 - currently making lots of money, that one ;)

The Weight by The Band was featured in the film 'Easy Rider' but was in fact sung by a band named Smith on the movie soundtrack album as there was a disagreement over royalties or something. Not a lot of people know that :D

Ok, MadX's score, the judges have conferred and total final tally is... 7.5 outta 10 ;)
