2. Obscurity? More like antiquity! But I recall "A World Without Love"

quite well.


"I don't care what you say,
I can't live in a world without love."

8. I'm with ya on "Don't Pity Me"
I'd have to pick that one as my favorite. Definitely underrated; I think it only peaked at #83. I also love "If I Were You", "If You Wish", and "I Told You So", as some of the lesser-known greats.

9. Lady Godiva
I think it was a P&G song ...

--bkl
He directs "Certificate X", and all the men are craning their necks to see her ...
Her long blond hair, lying on the barber's floor, she doesn't need it long anymore, hey-hey-hey,
Lady Godiva!

12. Go to Pieces is my fav but Lennon McCartney wrote
World Without Love for themselves but apparently passed the song on to P&G because Lennon couldn't sing the line "Please lock me away" without cracking up... so the story goes.

15. I was so in love with Peter
Edited on Sun Sep-14-03 10:48 AM by MaineDem
Ahhhhhh, that red hair, the glasses....*sigh*

Really I was! But I was, like, 15 and figured I'd have a better shot at him than at Paul McCartney who was dating Peter's sister, Jane. See, I had this all figured out. Man, I was so wrong! :D

I like "True Love's Ways" the best. Or was that Chad and Jeremy?

Oh for those high school years again...
