I got the tune thats all and rat race stands out asa lyric ---anyone know that site where you can tap a tune and it guesses the song via your space bar

Is it 'It's a rat race' by Boomtown Rats.

Something like - It's a rat race, and you've been had!..?

Its not the title its a lyric and its a recent artist like just come out heard it on the radio today
Its not rock or classical --Kinda poppy

Can you hum the tune and record it for us? :whistling:
It's the hardest search ever!

could it be arms race and not rat race?

haha best youtube video I've seen in a long time!
No mention of rats though, cats yes, rats no.

Banned

I recorded that song just for you, the next line is "So please, roll onto a giant rat trap."

Just a long shot..but you could use SHAZZAM and sing it down the phone after you dial 2580

costs 75p I think..and if your voice is good enough it'll tell you what the tune is..

..there's also a website where you can sing a song and it'll recognise - its free I believe. But can't remember the name. Anyone?

Is it not:

"The Editors: The Racing Rats"

Superior Youtube find :lol:

Well I wake up in the morning each and every day
And I sit down at the table and I hear my daddy say
Life is nothing
It's a nothing
Life is nothing but a slap in the face
Life is nothing
It's a nothing
Life is nothing but a fat rat race
ooh yeah yeah, ooh yeah yeah
ooh yeah yeah, ooh yeah yeah
Every night I have a dream that you're taking off your dress
The only thing you're wearing is a button on your chest
And the button, it says nothing,
Life is nothing but a slap in the face
Life is nothing
It's a nothing
Life is nothing but a fat rat race
What is life?
What is life?
A rat race
A rat race
What is life?
What is life?
A rat race
A rat race
A rat race
A rat rat race
ooh yeah yeah, ooh yeah yeah
ooh yeah yeah, ooh yeah yeah
It's a jungle out there and I know I don't belong
So all night long I just sing my stupid song
ooh yeah yeah, ooh yeah yeah
ooh yeah yeah, ooh yeah yeah
Life is nothing
It's a nothing
Life is nothing but a slap in the face
Life is nothing
It's a nothing
Life is nothing but a fat rat race
What is life?
A rat race
What is life?
A rat race
A rat, a rat race
A rat race
ooh yeah yeah, ooh yeah yeah
ooh yeah yeah, ooh yeah yeah
ooh yeah yeah, ooh yeah yeah
ooh yeah yeah, ooh yeah yeah

I doubt it'd have such a new song on, they're user submitted.

nd now...

That shes older
In the embers of romance
Pay two mortgages and leccy bills
Been comfortable and that
Nobody told her
That she'd ever reach the stage
Where her husband bores or her
Or she lies about her age

He's compromising
At least he's got a job for life
Get born, get school, get job, get car
Pay tax and find a wife
And on that note
The end can't come too soon
If you're not living on the edge
You take up too much room

I could've been a contender
Could've been a someone
Caught up in the rat race
And feeling like a no-one
Appearing in the papers
With the money and the girls
I could've been The Heavyweight Champion of the World

At school he used to dream about
Being Bruce Lee
But the need for chops in the Manor top
Aint all that great you see
And so he gave up
On his black belt and first Dan
As near as he got to China
Was a week in Camber sands

I could've been a contender
Could've been a someone
Caught up in the rat race
And feeling like a no-one
Appearing in the papers
With the money and the girls
I could've been The Heavyweight Champion of the World

It might be boring so boring
It might put you to sleep
The same old routine repeats week after week
And you work harder, work harder
Cos you're told that you must
And you must earn a living
And you must earn a crust

...like everybody else
Just be like everybody else
Just be like everybody else
Be like everybody else
Be like everybody else
Just be like everybody else
Just be like everybody else
Just be like everybody else

I could've been a contender
Could've been a someone
Caught up in the rat race
And feeling like a no-one
Appearing in the papers
With the money and the girls
I could've been The Heavyweight Champion of the World
I could've been a contender
Could've been a someone
Caught up in the rat race
And feeling like a no-one
Appearing in the papers
With the money and the girls
I could've been The Heavyweight Champion of the World

Be like everybody else
Just be like everybody else .....

I'll guess this one by the Reverend and the Makers, youtube.com/wat…cSo
