Ballads

Been Here For A While
Keeping on the theme of music, maybe not a song for the macho guys here, but what is you fav ballads?

1, Roberta flack the first time ever I saw your face
2. Wishing on a star Rose Royce
3. Odyssey If your looking for a way out

also every ballad on Bat out of Hell

Dinnae get your macho guys reference. I am sure that the hardline Communist Party of Great Britain and avowed Stalinist who wrote your first choice would fit into that stereotype.

Coulda had all 3 by this guy.
The one you mention, plus, From Russia with Love, and my favourite MM one which is On Days Like These.
Great voice.

Amigo I agree he was quality. I was going to put this one up, which is brilliant and better than the ones mentioned but upsets me to this day.Softy. When I was 10 my mum who is now in her late 80's had a pal who took her own life leaving a bairn of a similar age are me. I never knew either but my ma would play this record in her memory 55 years ago.
I have never discussed the episode since then. The words say it all. Eyes welling up listening now.


It could apply to what many of us have experienced in the loss of loved ones.

I don’t think I have a favourite but the lyrics from a country song which I don’t know the artist or the name of always stuck with me
🎼She got the goldmine I got the shaft
The judge split it all down the middle but then he gave her the better half
Well it sounds kinda funny but it hurts too much to laugh
She got the goldmine....and I got the shaft!🎼
Became very poignant when I got divorced.

Maybe should start a thread on favourite lyrics?

I read the first line as a cute sexual euphemism.
