Re: Need some help finding a lyric

No, in my mind, it's a very quiet song. I thought it was on Punch the Clock, but I am clearly wrong.
The sentence should be the last one of the chorus, I think

Need some help finding a lyric

So I was talking to my GF about Frank Turner's song "Worst Things Happened At Sea", and I was explaining how the Toy Dolls and EC have lyrics containing the same sentence since it's an English expression. So today I wanted to let her hear both songs and I can't find the EC one I was talkin...

The greatest love

Does anyone know how to get this song? Apart for buying the Japanse version...

I got my vinyl copy today and was hoping that it would be on there as a bonus track but no dice. :( iTunes doesn't have it either.

Goodbye Cruel World

I just bought this album yesterday and after preparing myself for how dated it must sound and how weak the songs must be, I'm pleasantly surprised. Because although there are a few songs on there with a very 80-ish keyboard sound, that's all. Three or four songs, and they actually don't sound all th...

I fail to understand to see how there can only be one more book. No way can there be one more book. What's more, the seventh obviously can't take place at Hogwarths.

20% Amnesia has a story behind it. I love it!

I'd say, not Dissolve is a filler, but I always wondered why he put "... Dust" on it, as well as "Dust 2 ...."
I like both equally though.

How good of a guitar player is Elvis?

Simple question directed to the people who might know...

I'm no good at any instrument,
and I don't know anyone who is,
but I am curious, because I never hear/see anyone mention it,
but after all, he carries along a zillion guitars on tour...

So who can tell me?
Is he good/average/what?

If you know you're doing something illegal, don't go crying if you're busted.

I had seen him the previous day in Groningen, and there his voice was a bit creaky but otherwise perfect. He did all the great notes -- A Good Year For The Roses was followed by Almost Blue, and his voice didn't even quaver. It was a very small venue so that was cool, but the coolest part was I Want...

Why's that?
Because I got the impression that Elvis didn't say much really.

Well, I only came across him when he released When I Was Cruel, but I usually only listen to punk, so I guess if he'd only churned out TYM-style albums I would only've come across him a lot sooner.
