Name the song....

A little quiz:

'Who told who that we were tearing down a once in a lifetime home. Who told who that it would be too late to be sorry later on.'

Which song? Take a guess...

We Both Know Which One Of Us Is Wrong.

I was listening to the Mercury Smashes and Rockin Sessions vol 3 and 4 and knew that I heard those words somewhere!

Very good! I thought it was quite an obscure song, but apperantly not that difficult. It's actually one of my favourite tunes. I love that honky tonk beat and I think it is a one take release: 'Let's turn it around, boys. I gotta explain myself here.'

(For the next one I had a song on my mind from the same cd. But that would be too easy now!)

Well, it's just the fact that I was listening to that CD, and it was a long time ago that I listened to that one, so they all sounded a bit new to me, maybe that was the reason I was listening with more attention to the songs, and remembered the lyrics...

I probably would have got this had I read the question in time and thought about it. But these type of questions never turn up in pub quizzes do they? It is usually triva about modern film/pop stars and who they ended up marrying or in bed with, modern American TV shows like The Simpsons, etc.

There's a British high IQ quiz show called 'Mastermind'. You have to answer questions on a specialist subject, and then General Knowledge (rather than trivia).

One of us should enter and choose Jerry Lee Lewis as their specialist subject. It is the only way we are likely to get questions like 'name Jerry Lee Lewis's six wives'.

Or preferably something like: 'What was the title of Jerry Lee Lewis's biggest selling album released in 2006?'

If nothing else, some publicity for our man.

Of course, we may flop in the General Knowledge round.

a previous winner of the show was a taxi driver named Fred Housego ,or something similar. I'm sure it was said at the time he was a member of the Colin Philips UK. club.

This is true, but he never chose Jerry Lee Lewis as his specialist subject.
