    Hint: British hard rock band, one of the first who introduced the epic element to heavy rock and one of the major influences of Iron Maiden as Steve Harris has stated. The song is included in their third and most famous album.

    It is "The king will come" by Wishbone Ash. New lyrics:

    Has he lost his mind
    Can he see or is he blind

    What do you mean 'no pride'? When a band member dies a tribute is always appropriate.

    I think he's referring to using an ABBA song here.

    CiG -- I understand it is an ABBA song, I simply meant there is no shame in a tribute when a member of the band dies (the drummer died last week). When Barry Manilow dies I might even quote one of his songs.

    everywhere you turn
    there's vultures and thieves at your back

    Ok...this is the only one I can think of for now...and it may be a little difficult but it's worth a shot because it's a brilliant song and who knows.....

    "and Frankie kicked a mine the day that mankind kicked the moon
    God help me, he was goin home in June"

    Ok...opening verse

    "Mum and Dad and Denny saw the passing out parade at Puckapunyal
    was a long march from Cadets
    The 6th Battalion was the next to tour and it was me who drew the card
    we did Canungra, Shoal Water before we left
    And Townsville lined the streets as we marched down to the quay
    This clipping from the paper shows us young and strong and clean
    And there's me in me Slouch hat with me SLR and Greens
    God help me...."

    edit - and I think that makes it pretty clear I'm quoting the original version, not the barely-passable version performed by The Herd

    Okay, obviously a LOT harder than I thought....no Aussies/Kiwis here? No-one who knows Redgum's "I Was Only 19"?? :nono:

    Well how about this:

    "I live in a nice house a
    I never do dance salsa
    I'm livin in Jamaica
    I live in an Icebreaker
    I'm livin in Africa
    I never do know where I
    Where I'm livin but I'm livin in a freefall"

    That's Friday by Daniel Bedingfield. I quite like his stuff, and find it interesting how much he's overshadowed by his sister, considering that he hit the scene with a megahit first. Oh well. :)

    Next up:

    I need a ride to the morgue
    That's what 9-1-1 is for...
