Right who did this song and what’s the title of it then you lot. :?:

He calls me Charlie Mason
A stargazer am I
It seems that I was born
To chart the evening sky
They'd cut me out for baking bread
But I had other dreams instead
This baker's boy from the west country
Would join the Royal Society...



By heck it's slow on hear again today!?. :roll:

    Sailing to Philadelphia by Mark Knopfler.

    We Are Sailing To Philadelphia
    A World Away From The Coaly Tyne
    Sailing To Philadelphia
    To Draw The Line
    The Mason-Dixon Line


    I have met Mark Knopfler, and he is lovely :!: :D

    Bugger bum flip!, well done Joan, I love this song, it's another one I came across just once and it stuck in my mind only to resurface years latter and I owndered who did it, I have a photographic memory for lyrics which sometimes can be a curse.


    Right heres one more.
    Now I really love this song, it's one of my top 5 of all time, gives me goose bumps when I play it, it's probably an easy one but lets see shall we. So here goes, name the song the singer and the album it came from. :?:

    Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery;
    None but ourselves can free our minds.
    Have no fear for atomic energy,
    'Cause none of them can stop the time.
    How long shall they kill our prophets,
    While we stand aside and look? Ooh!
    Some say it's just a part of it:
    We've got to fulfil de book.

    Right one last go at stumping you all, who sang this and what's the song.

    Telephone exchanges click while there's nobody there
    The Martians could land in the carpark and no one would care
    Close-circuit cameras shoot the same video every day
    And the stars of these films neither die nor get killed
    Just survive constant action replay

    Hi

    When I was at Glasgow School of Art in the 80's Del Amitri used to use the main hall in the student union as a practice venue, we used to see Justin and the boys quite regularly. It all seems so long ago now!!! Sigh......
