And a good start to the round.

Yep, well done!

Never shall I dance again, feet which are not innocent cannot follow the dance steps
It's not difficult to imagine all is otherwise however I know you are intelligent enough to see through this facade.
It would have been a far more profitable move had I not been untrue with a companion
And thrown away the opportunity that had been afforded me
Therefore never shall I dance again as I danced when I was in your company.
Another one from the memory vault.

"Never shall I dance again, feet which are not innocent cannot follow the dance steps" / "No I'm never gonna dance again, those guilty steps which got no rhythm" (or something like that). Followed by that sax solo in the chorus.

Careless Whisper - George Michael

Are you able to discern me in an upright position facing away from the wurlitzer?
You're observed worse I'm sure, you catch my drift?
Van Halen - "Jump"

"I get up and nothin' gets me down..."

That one Jumped right out at me.

If you can get one more, ribbons, that will be a full house, or should I say a complete residence

What about song 5? I recognize the start of the first line "A gentleman proceeds down the avenue asking the question “why is it that I am not as hard in my centre, why is it I am not as hard in my center as my existence certainly is?""

I just can't place the singer or the rest of the song. I think the first words were as follows, almost talk singing (with the notes underneath):
"A man walks down the street...da da da da da da da"
C..G.....E.......E.......D...C.........F...F...F.. .E..E...D..C

Sorry for the crazy explanation but see if you or anyone recognizes that. I don't think TH will mind us "conferring". Just like in a good 'ol pub quiz

Hi Saulaac - I have 15 mins left of lunch time here, so let us *confer*! Oh, the pressure.....


That first line seems familiar to me as well - why am I thinking Talking Heads, maybe? But I'm not confident about that. Let me put my thinking cap on....

Wait!!

"A man walks down the street and says / Why am I soft in the middle? / Why am I soft in the middle? / When the rest of my life is so hard?"

Paul Simon - "You Can Call Me Al"

See what we can achieve when we put our minds together?

I am transported by her to a distant place with which I have a particular affinity
And should I remain gazing at her for too extended a space of time I might weep.
Bolded = "reminds me of childhood memories / where everything was as fresh as the clear blue sky" and "if i look too long, I'd probably break down and cry."

Oh oh oh oh "Sweet Child O'Mine" - Guns & Roses

And with that I think we may have cleared the table, Saulaac.

TH did a great job on the lyrics in this round - much more challenging this time.
