0:07:190:07:23

# How can I be sure, I should be high above

0:07:230:07:26

0:07:310:07:35

# Don't tell me I'm the howling wind

0:07:350:07:38

# Don't tell me you're the wounded star

0:07:380:07:42

# And don't tell me I'm the devil's friend

0:07:420:07:46

# Don't tell me, don't tell me

0:07:460:07:49

0:08:260:08:30

-# And don't tell me I'm the devil's friend

-(Don't tell me)

0:08:300:08:34

# Don't tell me, don't tell me

0:08:340:08:36

# I've gone too far

0:08:360:08:38

# I can't get a grip on

0:08:540:08:58

# I can't get a grip on

0:08:580:09:01

# I can't get a grip on you

0:09:020:09:06

# I can't get a grip on

0:09:060:09:08

0:10:200:10:25

# I've got to break free

0:10:260:10:28

# God knows, god knows I want to break free

0:10:310:10:37

# I've fallen in love

0:10:390:10:42

# I've fallen in love for the first time

0:10:440:10:47

# And this time I know it's for real

0:10:470:10:52

# I've fallen in love, yeah

0:10:520:10:57

# God knows, god knows I've fallen in love

0:10:580:11:04

# It's strange but it's true, yeah

0:11:070:11:12

# I can't get over the way you love me like you do

0:11:120:11:16

# But I have to be sure

0:11:290:11:34

# But life still goes on

0:12:360:12:40

# I can't get used to living without, living without

0:12:400:12:44

# Living without you by my side

0:12:440:12:49

# I don't want to live alone, hey

0:12:490:12:55

# God knows, got to make it on my own

0:12:550:13:01

# So baby can't you see?

Queen, and I Want To Break Free,

0:13:270:13:29

OK, making their debut on Top Of The Pops tonight

0:13:310:13:34

with a song called I'm Falling, from Glasgow, here are The Bluebells.

0:13:340:13:37

# You're sweating now

0:13:510:13:53

# But wait till the winter comes around

0:13:550:14:00

# It won't be sweat

0:14:000:14:03

# That pours from your brow

0:14:030:14:05

# Just the cold tears of the hard driven rain

0:14:060:14:12

# Last night when you were crying

0:14:160:14:18

# How I wished that I was dying

0:14:180:14:20

# Saying silly things that made no sense at all

0:14:200:14:24

# Tried to sort out the problems

0:14:240:14:26

# But there were too many of them

0:14:260:14:28

# You said you'd love me through my rise and fall

0:14:280:14:32

# I'm falling down again

0:14:340:14:39

# I've been falling on down again

0:14:400:14:43

# Falling down again

0:14:430:14:45

# Falling on down

0:14:450:14:48

# I've been falling on down again

0:14:480:14:51

# Falling down again

0:14:510:14:53

# Falling on down

0:14:530:14:56

# So I asked her do you need a shield

0:14:590:15:06

# From the weapons the elements wield

0:15:060:15:11

# As all the hate comes pouring down

0:15:140:15:18

# I've been falling on down again

0:15:180:15:21

# Falling down again

0:15:210:15:24

# Falling on down

0:15:240:15:26

# Last night when you were crying

0:15:450:15:46

# How I wished that I was dying

0:15:460:15:48

# I need you to help me toe the line

0:15:480:15:53

# Tried to sort out the problems

0:15:530:15:55

# There were too many of them

0:15:550:15:58

# And I don't want to pay the price with my pride

0:15:580:16:02

# I'm falling down again

0:16:020:16:09

# I've been falling on down again

# Falling down again

0:16:290:16:30

# Falling on down

0:16:300:16:34

# I've been falling on down again

0:16:340:16:37

# Falling down again

0:16:370:16:39

# Falling on down

0:16:390:16:43

# I should have known better than

0:16:430:16:49

# These things just happen I guess

0:16:510:16:56

# I should have known better than

0:16:590:17:05

# These things just happen I guess

0:17:070:17:14

Here are Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark.

0:22:460:22:49

# Crossing every ocean for the sake of locomotion

0:22:570:23:01

# Crossing every ocean for the sake of locomotion

0:23:010:23:05

# Across every ocean

0:23:050:23:08

# For the sake of locomotion

0:23:080:23:12

# But I wouldn't have a notion

0:23:120:23:16

# How to save my soul

0:23:160:23:20

# I walk down the sidewalk

0:23:200:23:24

# Run down the boardwalk

0:23:240:23:26

# Stop and make small talk

0:23:280:23:31

# But I can't say no to you

0:23:310:23:36

# I can't say no, I can't say yes

0:23:360:23:39

# I can't even write down my own address

0:23:390:23:43

# I can't touch heaven it's a little too far

0:23:430:23:47

# It's the only way to travel

0:23:470:23:49

# Got dreaming on a par

0:23:490:23:51

# I'm staring through the window

0:23:510:23:53

# Wondering where you are

0:23:530:23:54

# Moving through the landscape at a million miles an hour

0:23:540:23:58

# Across every nation

0:23:580:24:02

# From the harbour to the station

0:24:020:24:05

# It's a form of inspiration

0:24:050:24:09

# It's a power to the state

0:24:090:24:14

# They run down the railways

0:24:140:24:18

# Sail across the seaways

0:24:180:24:21

# Fly through the airways

0:24:210:24:25

# But they can't say no

0:24:250:24:29

# To you

0:24:290:24:30

# I can't stand up, I can't stand still

0:24:300:24:33

# I know you wouldn't like it if I told you how I feel

0:24:330:24:37

# I just want to say that it's only common sense

0:24:370:24:40

# But the words always fail me at my own expense

0:24:400:24:44

# I'm staring out the window

0:24:440:24:46

# I wonder where you are

0:24:460:24:48

# Moving through the landscape at a million miles an hour

0:24:480:24:52

# Across every ocean

0:25:150:25:19

# For the sake of locomotion

0:25:190:25:22

# But I wouldn't have a notion

0:25:220:25:26

# How to save my soul

0:25:260:25:30

# Across every ocean

0:25:310:25:34

# For the sake of locomotion

0:25:340:25:38

# But I wouldn't have a notion

0:25:380:25:41

# How to save my soul

0:25:410:25:46

# Walk down the sidewalk

0:25:460:25:49

# Run down the boardwalk

0:25:490:25:52

# Stop and make small talk

0:25:530:25:56

# But I can't say no to you

0:25:560:26:02

# Crossing every ocean for the sake of locomotion

0:26:020:26:04

# Crossing every ocean for the sake of locomotion

0:26:040:26:08

# Crossing every ocean for the sake of locomotion

0:26:080:26:12

# Crossing every ocean for the sake of locomotion. #

0:26:120:26:16

That's OMD and Locomotion.

0:26:170:26:20

Hey, Pete, look, Easter starts tomorrow. I've brought you a little present.

0:26:200:26:23

Oh, yes, love it! Just my colour.

0:26:320:26:36

Ain't Nobody.

0:26:360:26:39

Gladys All Over.

0:26:390:26:42

People Are People.

0:26:420:26:44

0:26:570:27:00

For the fifth week running, here is Hello.

0:27:000:27:05

Listen up, everybody.

0:27:200:27:22

Tony, Billy Boy's been in prison for 25 years. He's only been out for three days.

0:27:230:27:28

The last time you were a free man the Brooklyn Dodgers were still the Brooklyn Dodgers.

0:27:280:27:32

And Eisenhower was your president.

0:27:320:27:35

Laura.

0:27:350:27:37

Amanda's intrigued with Billy Boy.

0:27:370:27:39

Billy Boy. Ask Amanda for a date.

0:27:390:27:42

We could go to The Paramount, maybe?

0:27:450:27:48

There is no more Brooklyn Paramount.

0:27:480:27:50

It's been taken over by some college.

0:27:500:27:53

Or The Albie?

0:27:530:27:55

That's gone, too.

0:27:580:27:59

You're a regular Rip Van Winkle, aren't you?

0:27:590:28:03

# I've been alone with you inside my mind

0:28:030:28:11

# And in my dreams I've kissed your lips a thousand times... #

0:28:110:28:16

It's been a long time since I've been on a date.

0:28:160:28:18

# I sometimes see you pass outside my door

0:28:180:28:25

# Hello, is it me you're looking for?

0:28:250:28:33

# I can see it in your eyes

0:28:330:28:36

# I can see it in your smile

0:28:370:28:41

# You're all I've ever wanted and my arms are open wide

0:28:410:28:48

# Cos you know just what to say and you know just what to do

0:28:490:28:55

# And I want to tell you so much, I love you... #

0:28:560:29:04

It's OK.

0:29:150:29:16

# I long to see the sunlight in your hair... #

0:29:170:29:25

Hi Laura. Sorry we're late.

0:29:250:29:26

# And tell you time and time again how much I care

0:29:260:29:33

# Sometimes I feel my heart will overflow

0:29:340:29:39

# Hello, I've just got to let you know

0:29:410:29:47

# Cos I wonder where you are and I wonder what you do

0:29:490:29:56

# Are you somewhere feeling lonely? Or is someone loving you?

0:29:560:30:03

# Tell me how to win your heart, for I haven't got a clue

0:30:030:30:11

# But let me start by saying... #

0:30:110:30:14

Too many memories, too many ghosts.

0:30:150:30:17

# I love you... #

0:30:170:30:19

It's what I know. This, and the can.

0:30:190:30:22

We could go to Florida.

0:30:220:30:24

Or we could go out west.

0:30:240:30:27

PHONE RINGS

0:30:440:30:46

0:30:560:30:58

0:31:000:31:04
