Time again to play Name that Tune with lyrics to this week's Dell songs. Here are your clues:

I'm gonna show you to a brand new game

From deep inside the pain that I chose to hide

I wonder, I wonder why
You had to leave me this way

Soften my dreams with your sighs

I knew he was wrong when he took your love from me
after all he was once my best friend

She's so fine
She'd give eyesight to the blind

There's a whole generation with a new explanation

Wiggle your legs now, baby
Shake your head

I'm gonna do everything in my power
To keep her in my life

I keep coming back for more of her love
There’s something about her I can’t get enough of

(end of clues)

Do you have a Shady Dell Top Tunes list of your own that you would like to share? I'd love to see it, especially if it covers a different period of Dell history. It doesn't have to contain 200 songs; even a Top 10 would be interesting and instructive. Submit your Dell's Greatest Hits list in the form of a comment and I'll get it posted.

Have a Shady day!

  1. Human by Tommy Hunt is my #1 Dell song. Dell Rat from 1961 - 1967 and then Vietnam interferred.
