Five years! I would have gotten to posting this sooner, but my phone was going through repairs...

Here's the next one

"but her friend is nowhere to be seen"

It's: Life on mars? Very Happy


Try this:
"And he drinks and he drinks,
and he drinks once again"


(This one is possibly a little bit difficult, although then again, perhaps not Toung )

It took me awhile to get this one, but I'm sure it is port of Amsterdam!!

Here is the next, it should be hard: "See my eyes, my window pane
See my tears like gentle rain"

I'll give you a hint, here are some more lyrics:

"And when she smiles, the ice forgets to melt away

Not like before, her smile was warming yesterday
See the trees like silver candy, feel my icy hand"

[CHORUS]
"See my eyes, my window pane
See my tears like gentle rain
That's a memory of the summer day"

Nope, I do not know this. I'm guessing that this is either something very rare, or something from the 1967 album (I do not have that one).

Do someone else get it? Smile

Slow burn? I think.. Or Days?
How about this:

Shall I tell? I don't think many other people are active at the moment. It's from the album Scary Monsters.

Ah, I always forget to listen to Scary Monsters, I'm afraid. Sorry, I can't crack this one... Perhaps macarawni would like to have a go?

So, I put Scary Monsters on yesterday and although I didn't have the opportunity to listen intently (I was working), I think the quote must be from Because You're Young? Is that right?

If so, how about this?
"Though we're strangers till now,
we're choosing a path between the stars."

I really need to get some more Bowie albums :/

At a guess I will go with 'Absolute Beginners'...seems topical for my entrance to this thread.

Although not correct, that was a very good guess, playlife! This song is from the same year as Absolute Beginner, but from a different film Wink Thematically, the songs are very similar Smile

This song was actuallly from the first casset te I ever bought (not that it well help you guys much) Wink You won't find the song on any compilation albums though and neither has db ever performed it live, as far as I know.

Here's the whole verse:
"I'll paint you mornings of gold,
I'll spin you Valentine evenings.
Though we're strangers till now,
We're choosing the path between the stars.
I'll lay my love between the stars."

Best of luck! Smile

Right, that narrows it down to two songs for me, but I still don't recognise the lyrics so here it goes...

You must be referring to Labyrinth, a film I haven't seen in a long, long time but fondly remember 'Magic Dance' and vaguely remember 'As the World Falls Down'.

I know there are other songs but those two stick, and as I know it's not the first one I will simply have to have a last guess at 'As the World Falls Down'.
