Carol King "You've got a friend":
--> When you're down and doubled, and you need another hand,
and nothing, nothing is going right.....

Rolling Stones "Criss Cross man":-->Baby. Ooh! Baby- Save me. Ooh! Save me. Ah!

Jimi Hendrix "Stepping Stone":
--> I sure got the blues this morning, baby
Yeah! and I'm here to tell you about it
So you might as well pick up on it!
I'm a man....

(Richard, but who cares ;) ) Blackwood, looking for a partner: "Someone There For Me"
--> Could you be the only one for me,
Take good care and see that all I need is someone to be there for me.
Would you stay around if times got bad?...

Ringo Starr "Puppet", and Sandie Shaw "Puppet on a String"

...... :lol:
Those are my principles. If you don't like them I have others. (Groucho Marx)

Don't forget the Master of Puppets (metallica)

Also form metallica could be:

One (one down or one level not sure), Hero of the day (suicidal sacrifice that turns good, or an excellent play of some kind), 4 knights of the apocalypse (for a team name), Nothing else matters (gran slam on a finese, where you either go 3 off or make) and the self explaining 'Sad but true'

"White Rabbit" convention: (1970's convention by Jefferson Airplane)

One bid makes you larger
and one bid makes you small
and the one that partner made for you
doesn't mean anything at all
So just jump to game
If you feel ten feet tall.
