    Name That Classic Rock Song (Fun Music Thread)

    It's not as easy as one might think when all you have is words. I'll try to post one every day or two. Can you name the song off the top of your head? We'll start with a favorite from my teenage years:

    Times are hard
    You're afraid to pay the fee
    So you find yourself somebody
    Who can do the job for free
    When you need a bit of lovin'
    'Cause your man is out of town
    That's the time you get me runnin'
    And you know I'll be around ...



    Light the candle
    Put the lock upon the door
    You have sent the maid home early
    Like a thousand times before
    Like the castle in its corner
    In a medieval game
    I foresee terrible trouble
    And I stay here just the same ...
    Its the mathematical potential for a single game to last forever, in a suspended world where no clock rules the day, that aligns baseball as much with the dead as the living.

    He's your oldest and your best friend
    If you need him, he'll be there again
    He's always willing to be second best
    A perfect lodger, a perfect guest

    ... , read it on the wall
    And realize, you just can't have it all
    You can't have it all

    He'll never make any enemies
    He won't complain if he's caught in a freeze
    He'll always ask
    He'll always say please

    ... never take it all
    'Cause it's easier, faster when you fall
    You just don't need it all

    Quite possibly my favorite one hit wonder ever. Love this song. I was a sophomore in HS when this one came out.

    Doing alright
    A little jiving on a Saturday night
    And come what may
    Gonna dance the day away

    Jenny was sweet
    She always smiled for the people she'd meet
    On trouble and strife
    She had another way of looking at life

    The news is blue
    Has its own way to get to you
    What can I do
    I'll not remember my time with you

    Pick up your feet
    You've got to move to the trick of the beat
    There is no elite
    Just take your place in the ...

    #2 is Beautiful Loser by Bob Seger. I saw Seger play at the Agora up at Ohio State probably 20 times. Mid-70’s.

    Short and sweet... One of my favorite music lyric of all time, written by one of the greatest songwriters of all time :

    Masquerading as a man with a reason
    My charade is the event of the season
    And if I claim to be a wise man, well
    It surely means that I don't know
    On a stormy sea of moving emotion
    Tossed about, I'm like a ship on the ocean
    I set a course for winds of fortune
    But I hear the voices say ...
