When I was a kid, I thought I'd save the world
Running 'round and chasing all the criminals
Swinging on a web, flying in the sky
Shooting lasers from my eyes
But now I know it never was my destiny
It's not my place in life, not who I'm meant to be
And I don't need the glory, I don't need the fame
And I don't wanna wear this cape
'Cause on the inside (on the inside)
I know it won't last
On the inside (on the inside)
I'm an outcast
Well, everybody needs a hero, but I'm not everybody else
I walk alone, yeah, I walk alone, yeah, I walk alone, oh, yeah
You know, I tried to be your hero, but I was lying to myself
I walk alone, yeah, I walk alone, yeah, I walk alone, oh, yeah
They build you up, and then they're gonna tear you down
They love you, then they hate you if you wear a crown
It's not that I don't love to solve a mystery
But life is hard enough with one identity
If silence is the voice of a new generation
Then I could live up to all of your expectations
I'd hammer down hard, like I'm Iron Fist
Then disappear like I don't exist
And on the inside (on the inside)
I know it won't last
On the inside (on the inside)
I'm an outcast
Well, everybody needs a hero, but I'm not everybody else
I walk alone, yeah, I walk alone, yeah, I walk alone, oh, yeah
You know, I tried to be your hero, but I was lying to myself
I walk alone, yeah, I walk alone, yeah, I walk alone, oh, yeah
Hero, oh, oh, oh, oh
Hero, oh, oh, oh, oh
Well, everybody needs a hero, but I'm not everybody else
I walk alone, yeah, I walk alone, yeah, I walk alone, oh, yeah
You know, I tried to be your hero, but I was lying to myself
I walk alone, yeah, I walk alone, yeah, I walk alone, oh, yeah
Well, everybody needs a hero, but I'm not everybody else
I walk alone, yeah, I walk alone, yeah, I walk alone, oh, yeah
You know, I tried to be your hero, but I was lying to myself
I walk alone, yeah, I walk alone, yeah, I walk alone, oh, yeah

Look
If you had one shot, or one opportunity
To seize everything you ever wanted
One moment
Would you capture it or just let it slip?
Yo
His palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy
There's vomit on his sweater already, mom's spaghetti
He's nervous, but on the surface he looks calm and ready to drop bombs
But he keeps on forgetting what he wrote down, the whole crowd goes so loud
He opens his mouth, but the words won't come out
He's choking how, everybody's joking now
The clock's run out, time's up, over, blaow!
Snap back to reality
Oh, there goes gravity
Oh, there goes Rabbit, he choked
He's so mad, but he won't give up that easy, no
He won't have it, he knows his whole back's to these ropes
It don't matter, he's dope
He knows that but he's broke
He's so stagnant, he knows when he goes back to his mobile home, that's when it's
Back to the lab again, yo
This whole rhapsody
He better go capture this moment and hope it don't pass him
You better lose yourself in the music, the moment
You own it, you better never let it go
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime
You better lose yourself in the music, the moment
You own it, you better never let it go
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime
You better
The soul's escaping, through this hole that is gaping
This world is mine for the taking
Make me king, as we move toward a new world order
A normal life is boring, but superstardom's close to post mortem
It only grows harder, homie grows hotter
He blows, it's all over
These hoes is all on him
Coast to coast shows, he's known as the globetrotter
Lonely roads, God only knows
He's knows is grown farther from home, he's no father
He goes home and barely knows his own daughter
But hold your nose 'cause here goes the cold water
His hoes don't want him no more, he's cold product
They moved on to the next schmoe who flows
He nose dove and sold nada
So the soap opera is told and unfolds
I suppose it's old partner but the beat goes on
Da da dum, da dum da da
You better lose yourself in the music, the moment
You own it, you better never let it go
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime
You better lose yourself in the music, the moment
You own it, you better never let it go
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime
You better
No more games, I'ma change what you call rage
Tear this motherfucking roof off like two dogs caged
I was playing in the beginning, the mood all changed
I've been chewed up and spit out and booed off stage
But I kept rhyming and stepped right into the next cypher
Best believe somebody's paying the pied piper
All the pain inside amplified by the fact
That I can't get by with my 9-to-5
And I can't provide the right type of life for my family
'Cause man, these goddamn food stamps don't buy diapers
And it's no movie, there's no Mekhi Phifer, this is my life
And these times are so hard, and it's getting even harder
Trying to feed and water my seed, plus
Teeter totter caught up between being a father and a prima donna
Baby mama drama's screaming on and
Too much for me to wanna stay in one spot, another day of monotony
Has gotten me to the point, I'm like a snail I've got to formulate a plot or I end up in jail or shot
Success is my only motherfucking option, failure's not
Mom, I love you, but this trailer's got to go
I cannot grow old in Salem's lot
So here I go it's my shot
Feet, fail me not, this may be the only opportunity that I got
You better
Lose yourself in the music, the moment
You own it, you better never let it go
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime
You better lose yourself in the music, the moment
You own it, you better never let it go
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime
You better
You can do anything you set your mind to, man

I think that at least somebody should try to research Englishwomen first. I'm tempted to ask if she is English, but I'm afraid that the answer is likely going to be 'yes' and that we will have wasted a question.

@JECE, are you asking me to go to the link and see if the person is still not there, in the event there have been changes?

Do you have any reason to think that the lists have changed?

It feels kind of like a new question to keep reviewing a changing list, but I don’t see why any of these lists would have changed in a day or two. What am I missing?
Yes. You may ignore the request, of course.
Why did you make it?
I was under the mistaken impression that you couldn't see recent changes to what has been categorized to a category page (without adding the page to your wishlist, which I didn't do). But I just discovered the "Related changes" hyperlink!

Also, on that note, I added Amber Marshall‎'s Wikimedia Commons category to the Canadian one, so don't don't count her out for that reason.

Should I tell you guys what it rhymes with?
I look foward to you rhyming Salóme Gunnarsdóttir...
Surprisingly, it's not too hard!
https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/File:is-d%C3%B3ttir.ogg

It just sounds like 'daughter', and means just that in Icelandic.

I feel like you’re off task. Perhaps you need more inspirational lyrics to get you motivated?

I'm going through this list:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category: ... en_singers

But there's way too many singers there to check them all, so I will just check those that sound familiar. Of course, with me being a senior citizen here, that may mean the person in question does not sound familiar to me.

I can only find 3 familiar sounding singer/actresses from that list that were born in the 80s that could be considered blonde.

Ellie Goulding, although acting is VERY limited
Kelly Osbourne
Joss Stone

I've had my free guess, but Ms Stone looks like a reasonble option if anyone wants to use theirs.

I have used my free guess (and repeated it) but someone who has not... Millie Bobby Brown.

Brit... not SURE of the other details of our knowledge. But Balki is quoting a Weezer song, and I think Brown starred in a Weezer video.

He's also quoting Mariah Carey and Eminem. Wouldn't read too much into that. The Mariah Carey and Weezer songs are both called Hero, Eminem is Lose yourself. I think it's not a hint, Balki started quoting songs last time he was GM too.

Found a few candidatea from Wales:
Charlotte Church
Duffy

Less likely:
Katherine Jenkins

I will use my free guess and say Duffy.
I can't find a reason to eliminate Katherine Jenkins, but Charlotte Church's voice appeared in "The Sync Report", which appears to have debuted on Apple TV? I'm not sure if that's Apple TV+, though, and it may be an interview, so perhaps she wasn't really an actress on the show.

I need a little lovin' at least two times a day
So when I call ya boy, you better run here right away
Let's have a show of hands, who's addicted to their man
If I could do the things I want to you, you'd be changing all your plans
You wanna say I'm yours, I wanna say get it
You wanna say, so say, I know what you're thinking babe

I don't think that it can be Ellie Goulding. Sesame Street at the time of her appearance in 2018 was HBO, although maybe that's not the same thing as HBO Max? It's also not clear whether her appearance in the documentary Louder Together would count as acting, so she may not have appeared in a film since before 2015. Kelly Osbourne has purple hair in the main picture of her Wikipedia article, and according to Wikipedia she was a guest judge on Legendary, which originally aired on HBO Max. Joss Stone is in the Wikimedia Commons category "Actresses from the United Kingdom born in the 1980s" and she apparently sang a song for the Netflix show "Grace and Frankie", so I don't think that it can be her either.

Do you give hints that you chuckle about, but no neanderthals get?
