Memorable Lyrics : Ultravox - Loves Great Adventure
My 14th Birthday party. My first birthday party. I had invited an assortment of school friends, purchased some strange coloured light bulbs for the front room, and stolen two twelve inch records from Woolworth’s. One of which was Ultravox's Loves Great Adventure.

Cheryl and Tracey were competing for my attention, whilst one of my mates (Rob) was attempting to get my sisters. Another mate (Paul) managed to get quite a bit of attention from the younger of my two next door neighbours. All this debauchery and most of us yet to see 14.

The most oustanding memory of the night was at the end: Me sitting in the armchair by the sterio, eyes closed, headphones on, singing this song on the top of my voice. When I opened my eyes I was surrounded by people... most of whom where pointing and laughing.

Standing on my own
It didn't mean that much to me
I thought I had it all
I didn't see the mystery
I stood the test of time
I took the step to find
Love's great adventure

I spoke a million words
They didn't mean that much to me
They rang around my head
Like empty tuneless harmonies
Love's great adventure mine

Lying side by side
It didn't mean that much to me
I started to enjoy
The poetry and symphonies
I took it in my stride
I hailed the Day i tried
Love's great adventure

A fool who couldn't see
It didn't mean that much to me
I couldn't understand
That's how the game is meant to be
Love's great adventure mine

Standing on my own
It didn't mean that much to me
I thought I had it all
I didn't see the mystery
I stood the test of time
I took the step to find
Love's great adventure
