Good to see all the questions answered on the first quiz of the year and as a reward…here’s a new one where I’m going back to the old format.

So, here’s some lyrics, you pick the song and artist…good luck:

Waterloo Sunset / The Kinks / Shelton 10

  1. You ask me where to begin / Am I so lost in my sin / You ask me where did I fall / I’ll say I can’t tell you when

I’ll Find My Way Home / Jon & Vangelis / BAAKKEERRRR

  1. Friends all tried to warn me / But I held my head up high / All the time they warned me / But I only passed them by

Rock 'N Me / Steve Miller Band / Bloodstained Devils

#1599

Bit surprised no ones nailed that 19 yet.

Opening track on a classic aussie album, from “The” quintessential aussie “Pub” band, (many would say they invented the term), … the title of which escapes me now if I ever knew it, as it hails from the dreaded, left on the dash faded cassette label days.
In fact, other than the song about Steel, I could probably only name the Albums title track as one being on it, which, after it had all gone white, was just shortened to BAS in black texta written on both sides.

(*Pretty sure it was the 1st, could have been the 1st on side 2?)

Yep…
I missed that one. I’m on holiday and still regretting doing some kind of injury to Barrett when I saw him.

It’s a Dio song. I’m thinking Rainbow but I just can’t nail it right now. Leave it with me. Catching up with an old muso friend later today. Gonna run it by him also.
I hope that’s not cheating :wink:
