#1714

I could guess at what it is by what I know it isn’t.
But that’s not really how the game’s played, is it.

Hit us with your best shot, Wim. Fire away.

(It’s not that one by any chance?)

I’m pretty sure it’s not.
Definitely not the first verse.

Anyway, It’s not Love Is A Battlefield, We Belong, Sex As A Weapon or All Fired Up.
I really don’t know her earlier stuff, I never got into that live album* of hers (hmmm, no-one gave that a run in the live albums thread) but plenty of my mates were into it.

So anyway, I’ll have a stab at Invincible, since there’s a couple of other songs from that era in the quiz, and I can’t remember the lyrics to it for the life of me.

*Edit: Live From Earth? Dimma was a big fan, IIRC.

Edit: Edit: Just checked. It’s not that either. So I guess it’s a pre-1983 song.

It is a pre 1983 song…her earlier stuff was her best (imho)

It’s from her third album


#1718
