2003/11/18 00:18:00 - Lyrics, part II
Answers:

(1) And if there's no tomorrow // And all we have is here and now
atreic and beckyc; Breathless, The Corrs

(2) Packing your bags, being sure and thorough, // Knowing though you're late, that ship is sure to wait.
beckyc and fluffymormegil; Cassandra, ABBA

(3) Like lambs go to the slaughterhouse, we know our rights from wrongs
fluffymormegil is right that this is NMA, I'll leave it open for guesses as to what...

(4) Tougher than diamonds, rich like cream; // Stronger and harder than a bad girl's dream.
fluffymormegil; Power of Love, Huey Lewis And The News

(5) Now that you're not a kid anymore? // I know just what to say // I answer right away
sciolist; Bobbie's Girl, Marcie Blaine

(6) This is it boys, this is war. // The president is on the line
atreic, met24 and sciolist; 99 Red Balloons, Nena

(7) Now I'm on your track and I'm in your mind // And I'm on your back but don't look behind
beckyc and ceb; The Invisible Man, Queen

(8) We're heading for something // Somewhere I've never been // Sometimes I am frightened // But I'm ready to learn
atreic and beckyc; Power of Love; Jennifer Rush / Celine Dion

(9) He said, "If you wanna marry Susie you'll fight for her like a man."
(10) Please take me back to that place // Where I've got all me my memories, // those were my happiest days
(11) (spoken) Ladies and gentlemen, Mr Motch Bondouché; and his amazing cheese and pickle solo...
(12) She’s the one - I’ve been told // now she’s wearing a band of gold
(13) The phone rings in the middle of the night // My father yells what you gonna do with your life
(14) Behind the shelter in the middle of the roundabout // The pretty nurse is selling poppies from a tray
(15) Somewhere there is sunshine, somewhere there is day
(16) But not a word was spoken // The church bells all were broken
Current Music: I don't wanna dance - Eddy Grant

OK, I know 13 now, but only because I googled it, so I won't spoil it. One question though, so you actually own that? Even I don't own that. Even Adrian doesn't own that!

Yup. I've got it on a compilation CD, and it's worryingly earwormish.

I don't own *all* of the tracks involved, but I'd like to own all the ones that I don't.

Everyone else has already got the other ones I know :) 15 is Morning Town Ride (?), which I think is from a musical.

I thing that the NMA is Grandmother's Footsteps - though I might be getting it confused with Western Dream - or not.
