As that kind Mr Winner would say: "Calm down, dear O+ or O->, it's only a game!"
'sides which, B'fly has sorted it. :wav:
It's been pointed out, with just the lyrics: Google ===> Bingo ===> [YouTube] ===> End of game.
So this one is a little more :scratch: :scratch: and for Real music fans, not Google Geeks.
OK?

Ok handy i am calm, so theres no problem there.
As for your understanding of the game.... Well thats not right.
The game is played like this
1st - you choose a song that YOU already know.
2nd - you take part of those lyrics from that song, enough so most can get or understand the lyrics
3rd - you write the lyrics as a new post
4th - you wait until any member asks for a clue if they dont know the song, you dont provide them/us with clues until asked
5th - if most of the players here dont know the song they will say that they dont know the song (that may take a day or more sometimes so patience is needed) and someone will then eigther try and geuss it, or it will get googled to answer (but that person will say its been googled) at that point the person who posted the lyrics has won that geussing game if the answer is googled then the lyrics provider can eigther take another go or they can pass there go onto any or all members in UHM
E.G. This is how the game is written down in the thread and responded too.

How about this one....

Rags to riches or so they say
You got to - keep pushing for the fortune and fame you know
It's all a gamble when it's just a game
You treat it like a capital crime
Everybody's doing their time

Take me down to the paradise city,
where the grass is green
and the girls are pretty,
oh won't you please take me home!! :lol:

Great song and i remember seeing the Use your illusions tour - great band! Not sure whether I like them without old Slash though!

Your turn now Razor.

These are all quoted from members playing the game on page 3 of this thread.
There are unwritten rules like
Google isnt to be used to search for answers (because most of us know the songs anyway and can see and understand when someone has googled cough butterfly to get an answer) apart from that google rule there are no others i can actual think of!? But you can however use youtube to lisen to songs you may think are the correct answer But writing the lyrics into a search engine isnt allowed just like google. Anyway you can post youtube links to the song but there not realy needed just the Artist and the song title will do, you get how its played now yes/no ? Maybe ?.
P.S. This way of playing as written above has worked for us for nearly over 4 months or there abouts so its how we play it.

Once upon a time there was an Amoeba, which sat around for billions of years, ... and died out

Once upon a time there was another Amoeba, which responding to changes in its environment, adapted, met new conditions, adapted, and, before it knew it, had become Darwin.

At that time there was another guy, closely related to the 1st Amoeba, called Bishop "Soapy Sam" Wilberforce, who didn't like his great, great grandad ['cos he was a chump or was that a chimp?], or Darwin's ideas, so moved to the USA, became Sarah Palin and founded Creationizm, ... and died out.

Can we get this back on track?

AAAH, perhaps you could start a new game under your style... if you give me an insight into your thought processes I'm sur that I and a few others could "tag along"... it's a bit like getting used to a new crossword in a new newspaper...

Well said "Ximenes" - Round Britain Quiz, anyone?
OK, the story so far:
Willie Dixon - Wrote it;
Howlin Wolf - Sang it;
I‘m my epistyle’s content, The Greek version of a Latin word we usually use for this wooden structure;
tho’ not forward, - A standard X-word lead;
nor the Title, only the Key - But this might be part of the Lyric;
Taking my balloon for a walk - Were they full of H H H or He He He, Chemists will tell you / it followed you.
Title - Put that lot together, my hearties.
Please show your workings! WikiP, et al, are allowed.
