I was no more than a boy
In the company of strangers
In the quiet of the railway station
Running scared,

I've got an idea for this one but I'm not sure it's right.

Have you got one of your cryptic clues ?

Muhammed Ali is all that springs to mind, I'm afraid. No clue.

OK looks like this is a toughie. The song was sung by a famous duo, and it was released in 1970.

I know them lyrics, it's a Simon & Garfunkel song but I didn't know what it's called, did some YouTube searching and found it "The Boxer" now the clue makes sense  Cheesy

Thought it might be Ashes to Ashes but after singing it in my head a few times I reckon it might be Fashion ?

I thought you had it there but no, it's earlier than both of them, think 1979.

Sang it out loud a couple of times and it came back to me. I remembered "Blue, blue, electric blue..." too. It's Sound & Vision.

Quite tricky to recall, I thought it was Bowie straight away, I must have listened to his greatest hits hundreds of times back in the day and that's one of my favourite songs of his.
