      This is such a naff song, but 'Things can only get better' by D:Ream often pops up in my head when times are tough .

        Haven't a clue who it's by, but the chorus line goes:

        "If at first you don't succeed, dust yourself down and try again, dust yourself down and try again..."

          here you are April!

          now you can sing along as well!! :lol:


          Cheer up, Brian

          You know what they say

          Some things in life are bad

          They can really make you mad

          Other things just make you swear and curse

          When you're chewing on life's gristle

          Don't grumble, give a whistle!

          And this'll help things turn out for the best



          ...always look on the bright side of life!


          Always look on the bright side of life

          If life seems jolly rotten

          There's something you've forgotten

          And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing

          When you're feeling in the dumps

          Don't be silly chumps

          Just purse your lips and whistle -- that's the thing!

          And... always look on the bright side of life...


          Come on!

          (others join in whistling and singing the chorus)

          Always look on the bright side of life


          For life is quite absurd

          And death's the final word

          You must always face the curtain with a bow

          Forget about your sin

          Give the audience a grin

          Enjoy it -- it's the last chance anyhow!

          So always look on the bright side of death!

          Just before you draw your terminal breath

          Life's a piece of sh**

          When you look at it

          Life's a laugh and death's a joke, it's true

          You'll see it's all a show

          Keep 'em laughing as you go

          Just remember that the last laugh is on you!

          And always look on the bright side of life (whistle)

          Always look on the bright side of life (whistle)

                Hey! That's the one Beth! I only know the chorus though! I can sing it all now ~ it's the chorus that contains the words of wisdom though.

                          EEEK! Tony Blair?? I forgot about that!

                          Well, he just hijacked it! It's not even a song that I particularly like even! :lol:

                          I also had this song pop up once when I was a little bit ''in between homes'' many years ago:

                          'The only way is up' by Yazz & the Plastic Population.

                          There's a line in it that said: 'If you should be evicted from your home, then move somewhere else and still carry on..'' It was spot on at the time and now I look back and smile a wry smile about it .

                            Thanks for making me a fighter lyrics ..Christina Aguiliri

                            After all you put me through

                            You'd think I despise you

                            But in the end, I wanna thank you

                            'Cause you make me that much stronger

                            'Cause it makes me that much stronger

                            Makes me work a little bit harder

                            It makes me that much wiser

                            So thanks for making me a fighter

                              melanie, that song strikes a chord with me too. i dont normally like christina aguilera, but that is a good un. it came out just when we in the throes of moving from our house , and it was in my head constantly.

                              especially the bit where she sings ' you thought i would forget, but i remember, i remember, i remember'.

                              mazza, i know where you are coming from... :unsure: very much .

                              I decree today that life

                              Is simply taking and not giving

                              England is mine - it owes me a living

                              But ask me why, and I'll spit in your eye

                              I don't like liars, I don't like cheats. I don't like bullsh***ters. I don't like schmoozers. I don't like ar*e-lickers. ~ Sir Alan Sugar

                              "Why, Sir, you find no man, at all intellectual, who is willing to leave London. No, Sir, when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford." ~ Samuel Johnson
