I'll name that tune in ...

Just a bit of fun. Here are lyrics from three songs for you to guess the titles.
Each one is taken from the soundtrack of one of my books - something I do to give me an awesome playlist while I'm busy scribbling.

So here's the first batch.
If you want a bit of a clue, scroll down, but give yourself a chance, first.

From the Archer soundtrack
There are plenty of ways you can hurt a man 
and bring him to the ground,
You can beat him, 

you can cheat him,
you can treat him bad
and leave him when he's down

From the Slater soundtrack
And for love's sake, each mistake, 
Ah, you forgave
And soon both of us learned to trust
Not run away, it was no time to play
We build it up and build it up and build it up, And now it's ...

From the New Kid in Town soundtrack
You look in her eyes; 
the music begins to play,
Hopeless romantics, here we go again,
But after a while 

you're looking the other way
It's those restless hearts that never mend.

A heads up: a heck of a lot of titles come from my fave artists: Journey, Queen, Bowie, City Boy, Whitesnake - pretty much anything rock related. But there are other genres, including a few novelty ones with song titles which fit the action.

Archer - This happens a lot when jousting (think "A Knight's Tale")
Slater - A property associated with Stonehenge (think of my favourite music)
New Kid - Bit of a giveaway (think of Uncle Sam's favourite bird)

If you think you know the answer, add a comment below and, even better, leave me a lyric from your fave tune to see if I can guess it.


  1. Archer soundtrack-Queen Another One Bites The Dust
    Slater Soundtrack-Ashford and Simpson Solid
    New Kid In Town soundtrack-Eagles New Kid In Town

  2. Perfect - your name is in the hat with 3 out of 3. ♥♥♥
