The Winner Takes It All - New and expanded name of the game!

As I'm hopeless with lyrics to songs I looked it up as the words rang a bell. I won't say what the answer is as that would be unfair. The reason why I'm posting at all is that the series was filmed in a location I was working in when the series was made so it was interesting seeing places I recognised.

Baz, there's a good clue in Roxan's post

Oh , is it an ABBA one 

 No!

The clue is in the OP, not the thread title.

I’ve got it now ...having sung it in my head ...is it Butterflies

 And the song writer was Dolly Parton (but she didn’t sing the theme song for the series)

 We’ll need Rox to confirm it, of course

she did write it Yogi, I wasn't on in time to give the answer  Nana Mouskouri did a nice version of it...I still have the album somewhere. 

I used to like Nana Mouskouri ...think I’ve still got an LP somewhere

OK - here's one:

 

🎼 So when I can only see the grey,
Of a sad and very lonely day,
That's when I softly sigh... 🎹

On White Horses

Snowy white horses

Let me ride away!

I thought that one would go quickly. 

 

Arguably one of the loveliest theme songs ever. I wanted to mention "White Horses" in the previous thread, but couldn't find a way to crowbar it in...

I mentioned that I knew the area where Butterflies was filmed. I drove past the house where it was filmed just last week. The house as it is now, not much change over the years.
Butterflies house

I loved that show it was so beautiful in so many ways!

Been singing the song non stop since you posted it!

They still show Butterflies over here on public television, along with Keeping Up Appearances, The Good Life, Are You Being Served, Fresh Fields and strangely, Trollied!

Now you know how I feel!

🎼 I can answer all the problems that they bring to me.

But dealing with my own is not the same... 🎹

Nobody's taken this so far, so I will:

It's from the theme to "Agony", which starred Maureen Lipman.

 

TBH, I could only ever remember the ending of the song, not the verses. However I was able to make an educate guess I was fairly confident about, and then confirm it.

 

All together now:

"Agon-EE-ee-EE-ee-EE! Agon-EE-ee-EE-ee-EE! Agon-EE-ee-EE-ee-EE! Agony, Agony!"

Agon-EE agon-e

still doesn't take White Horses out of my head!
