How 'bout a rousing round of Name That Tune by Storyline?

I’ll start:

A young man, bored in his current relationship, seeks out new love via the personal ads. He begins communicating with a woman who shares several of his interests and, upon meeting her in person, discovers that she’s the girlfriend he’s had all along.

Now you.

Escape (The Pina Colada Song) by Rupert Holmes


Babushka by Kate Bush

Actually, scratch the Kate song. That was done via anonymous letters, not personal ads.

“There’s a monkey in the jungle watching a paper trail;
Caught up in the conflict between his brain and his tail.”

Name that artist and song! :slight_smile:

Why a Duck, you are supposed to offer a new storyline when you answer the question.

Ruffian: Gorillaz - 19-2000
The story of a nightclub singer searching for a lost love that left him when she found out he was a petty thief robbing the motor banks in his hometown.

Sorry I killed your thread, auntie em. Maybe I’ll save it by bumping it 12 1/2 hours after I mortally wounded it.

Homebrew – I have no idea, but I know that Lola was a showgirl, she worked at the Copa Cabana, and she did a mean meringue.

Am I close?

Lost me, Homebrew… unless… the closest guess I can hazard is Lily, Rosemary, and the Jack of Hearts by Bob Dylan, but that song is a lot more complex than that…

Um, ok… young college kid out on his own for the first time meets a woman in a bar. She turns out to be a drag queen… despite major creep-out factor, wild man-love commences anyway. At least, that’s what I think the plot is… I could be wrong :p.

Is this an “L-O-L-A, Lola” theme shaping up here?

Hint–there is nobody named Lola in this one:

An adolescent male struggles with his new and confusing feelings as he realizes that adult authority figures are truly multi-dimensional human beings.

Good call, Homebrew, although an internet search revealed I was incorrect–

“There’s a monkey in the jungle watching a vapor trail…”

No less nonsequiter, though.

As for the other lyrics, I have no idea.

That Neil Young song?
Sorry, its late.

A man had a girl that took him to her room that hadnt a chair, but they lit a fire in any case. They drank some wine and he slept in the bathtub. In the morning she’d left for work.

Yes. Does that mean my plot synopsis was correct?

That would be Norwegian Wood
A young lady meets a young gentleman named William in the forepart of the week, and it induces arythmic cariac problems

I met him on a monday and my heart stood still…
dah do run run run dah do run run.

Er, I don’t know the name. Or artist.
Easy one. Male transvestite prostitute complains about not being busy enough at work, but doesn’t mind due to having (title of song)

OK, the song is actually called ** Da Doo Ron Ron ** by ** The Crystals /b] (circa 1963) but you’ve got me stumped on yours - if it ain’t LOLA or Lou Reed or Dude Look Like a Lady, I’ve pretty much run through my knowledge of TV rock. No doubt other Doper will nail it down shortly.

[bold]Hashpipe[/bold] by Weezer.

Here’s one:

A rich party girl has a reversal in fortune that reduces her to walking the streets.

No apologies (or, erm… “bumping”) necessary. I mean, so what if you made the rest of us feel like idiots… :smiley:

As for NDP’s clue… All I can think of is “Rich Girl” by Hall & Oates (but she can rely on the Old Man’s money, so I don’t think she has to walk the streets)…

Is it Roxanne by the Police?
