Looks like a clue is needed here?

This title may have played on folk's minds on 23 June 2016 :wink:

Is absolutely correct Bee...

It's always tease, tease, tease
You're happy when I'm on my knees
One day it's fine and next it's black
So if you want me off your back
Well, come on and let me know
Should I stay or should I go?


Your go!

Ok so it looks like no one else was in B & M when they played this over the tannoy last week... if I give the next line you'll have the title so here you are
And IF I SHOULD FALL BEHIND, wait for me
a brilliant song which I'll now post on Peter's Petticoat and I bet you'll remember it.....
Phil, as the only one who showed any interest I nominate you to set the next one....

I've never heard that one, Bee. Because I got a go through nomination; I'll keep it in the same vein.

Phil

Another Springsteen tune - although more well know from the Manfred Mann's Earthband version I fancy?

Fabulous rock ballad duet by an Eagle and female singer who shares her name with another if said out loud.

Can't believe this one still hasn't gone - here's a little more...

Fair do's Phil - you don't know it and nobody else seems interested so I'll tell you.

Don Henley & Patty Smyth (not to be confused with Patti Smith as I always had until recently :oops: ) and the wonderful rock ballad...
"Sometimes Love Just Ain't Enough"

I'll post a link on the Dreamboats & Petticoats thread in a mo.
