    This thread is dedicated to songs that are amazing, but are hardly ever played on the radio.

    To start it off: War Paint by the Brook Brothers

    Best lyric: “You may think that you look cute. I don’t think it’s funny when you ruin my suit!”

    How many music threads are there on here now?

    Don’t tempt me, or I’ll start a dedicated Christmas music thread. It’s that time of year.

    I do like that Nick Lowe song, though.

    Crazy Love by the Kez

    I’m cheating with this one because they’re an amateur band, therefore, this wouldn’t be played on the radio.

    “If music be the food of love, play on.”

    Nobody Needs your Love – Gene Pitney (written by Randy Newman)

    This doesn’t sound like a Randy Newman song until Pitney sings: “Nobody needs your love more than I do.”

    Don’t Call Me Baby – Voice of the Beehive

    V of the B were a new wave rock band*, made-up of: two American sisters; two former members of Madness; and another bloke.

    *Funnily enough, it was David Bowie who coined the term: new wave rock.

    Here’s a great Italian song: Senza una Donna – Zucchero. There was also a semi-English language version of this song released, which featured Paul Young.

    ‘Senza una donna’ means without a woman; ‘zucchero’ means sugar; and ‘Paul Young’ means Paul not old. If you think the main reason I posted this song was to make that joke, you are correct.

    Kissing with Confidence – Will Powers, featuring Carly Simon.

    Best 3 lyrics:

    ‘Will I spoil it with my overbite?’
    ‘Will are noses bump in the moonlight?’
    ‘Remember, you cannot get pregnant from kissing.’
