This is a forum game where you take a song and come up with another way of saying it..and people try to guess it. However, you must include some info about it..like for instance the first year it was sung in english..

Example: Numerous Crimson Helium Filled Objects -1984 first year sung in english
Answer - 99 red Balloons.

Try not to make them TOO far of a reach for the answer..you can also have a bonus question for who sang the song, but remember that a lot of songs have multiple artists. Also..one request per song to rephrase can be asked..so keep that in mind. :D

Actually, dalesys, I think Kittish was going for "Itsy bitsy teeny weeny yellow polka-dot bikini". There's nothing sunny or spotted about that Duece Coupe.
dalesys
The flavor of bee barf - 1965
"A Taste of Honey" (the date indicates it would be the Herb Albert and Tijuana Brass version, and not the Ohio Players ~1975/76).
Also, it's not "barf", per se, but more "regurgitation".

Wow. Did I hit one that's too obscure? Or has the game pretty much run its course?

Ok, next hint:
Artist is the CEO of Stacks on Deck Entertainment and has had his music officially banned by the US military.

I've been gone for several days because my computer has been down, but I'm back. I hope this thread hasn't died.

If so how about:

I thought this was an easy one. Another hint: It is also the name of a Christmas carol.

Also, I'm still not sure if Devil and Daughter is right. I read that it was recorded in 1989, not 1985.

Sorry, Devin and Daughter is correct. I typoed the date.

Yours is "Joy to the World" by Three Dog Night.

Ok, now let's try a REAL 1985 song this time:
