Erasure Competition!
« on: May 07, 2007, 19:30:53 PM »
Right, here's our first open quiz :)

The only rules are this. The first person to post the answers wins! Below are five verses of lyrics all borrowed from different songs. Mixed up in them are five lines from five different Erasure tracks. Tell me what they are, you dont need to tell me anything other than the lyrics. I'm not looking for song titles or any other info at all. In the event that no one person gets all five then the next highest guesser will win. Its not easy but you never expected it to be "What famous 80s band was Vince Clark one of the founder members of along side Martin Gore?" ::)

One more thing. The postage comes out of my own pocket so if any of our overseas members win then be prepared to help with postage costs! ;D

Oh, I almost forgot. The winner will be required to write a review of the album for use on PEC & PEP :o :D

Here are the verses.........................


              Some expression leading to the sky

            You know you can't quit until it's won

            But it's getting kind of late now

            You may have nothing in this world at all

            When people on the street were walking hand in hand



            I sought the clues to life's unanswered questions

            Fields of incentive covered with green

            Some memories of gone by times will still recall the lies

            I dread, dread to think what the future will bring

            But it won't leave me desolate and angry





            I want to walk in the open wind

            Love your body even when it's old

            Would you open your arms out to me

            It seemed that we were so immune

            Cut out the facts and only let in the rumours





            Wandering through the back roads and the rain comes rushing down

            We sit and watch these lifeless forms

            Turn your back on mother nature

            Then all the colors will bleed into one

            Caught up in circles confusion




            A beam of light comes shining down on you

            You surmise you can't win

            Cross the desert sometime in the early hours

            And you think you're immune

            The words we use are strong


I have the body of a 19 year old. I keep it in the fridge.......................
