Biography

The Fore got their start as The Beatniks in 2000, after changing their name to The Fore in 2001 they took their energetic, harmonious sounds wherever they could find an audience. This brought them to the attention of the manager of The Cavern Club in Liverpool, who offered them a residency. They played clubs, festivals — even high street venues — to broaden their fan base as they gained experience. In 2007, they recorded their first CD, entitled “Black & White” — an independent venture that has sold thousands of copies around the world by word-of-mouth only! They performed at the Southeast England Fireworks Display in front of 35,000 in November, 2007 and have supported the famous Bootleg Beatles in Shrewsbury, Shropshire, England and G2 — a Genesis tribute band. In 2008, they won the BBC Upstaged competition and performed live on international television. In December, 2008, they released their second album 'Run and Hide' to critical aclaim, The Fore are also beginning to make inroads into America and have been played on numerous radio stations. In December 2008 The Fore reached number one on the Unsigned Chart Show (iTunes) with the track 'You'll be Mine' taken from the album 'Black and White'.

Lyrics

Little Louisa

Written By: Spencer Hannabuss

I know a little girl called Little Louisa
She'll do anything to please ya
All the guys in school think she's so fine
Some day soon I'm gonna make her mine

Well I've searched to the east I've searched to the west
But she's the only girl that I like best
If Little Louie just catch my eye
She's gonna make me die
Little Louisa
Little Louisa

She's so short you could say small
But she's been with guys that are 10 foot tall
What she wants is what she gets
She ain't never been turned down yet

Well she'll use you then she'll put you down
Louisa's the cutest girl around
Though you think that she's just a child
She's gonna drive you wild
Little Louisa
Little Louisa

Well she'll use you then she'll put you down
Louisa's the cutest girl around
Though you think that she's just a child
She's gonna drive you wild
Little Louisa
Little Louisa

I know a little girl called Little Louisa
She ain't nothing but a real big teaser
She will treat you so unkind
She'll have you going right out of your mind

Well every night about 7 or 8
She'll be there so don't be late
Dusk she come, dawn she go
She then won't wanna know
Little Louisa
Little Louisa
Little Louisa
Little Louisa

A Girl Like You

Written By: Spencer Hannabuss

A Girl Like You

Everytime I see you I just wanna die
I can't understand why you would make me cry
These other guys will tell you lies
but I know I won't feel down with A Girl Like You

If you only knew just what you do to me
Would you put me out of my misery?
These other guys will tell you lies
But I know I won't feel down with A Girl Like You

If you'd be my baby I won't let go
If I had A Girl Like You to love me so, to love me so

Everytime I see you I just wanna die
I can't understand why you would make me cry
These other guys will tell you lies
But I know I won't feel down with A Girl Like You

But I know I won't feel down with A Girl Like You
But I know I won't feel down with A Girl Like You

Love For Sale

Written By: Spencer Hannabuss

If you want it I have Love For Sale
I'm gonna show you I have Love For Sale
Well I've made my mind up now and all I want is you
I'm gonna make you realise in everything I do

I give my love to you
I know you feel it too
Well I've had to wait so long for things to work my way
I'm gonna tell you now so won't you listen to what I want to say
Do you want my Love For Sale

Since she broke my heart well I knew from the start
I would be much happier with you by my side

I give my love to you
I know you feel it to
Well I've had to wait so long for things to work my way
I'm gonna tell you now so won't you listen to what I want to say
Do you want my Love For Sale

Do you want my Love For Sale
