Icy North

I'm a bit pressed for time this week, so here's another song quiz that I prepared earlier.

Below you'll find a list of words taken from five song titles. One word from each title is missing. The missing words are all different, and do not appear elsewhere in the list. You need to find the five words, then rearrange them into another song title.

All songs were top-10 single hits in the UK.

Finally, these usually get solved quickly, and this one's not difficult, so don't scroll down if you want to test yourself.

Good luck!

Clue: one of Sasha’s has to be wrong, as the title is incorrect for the song he had in mind.

You’re getting closer.

Two of the significant nouns are in the same song title.

You can call me TC

Can't get on line so much these days because the login is blocked at work and I've moved to a different computer.

So this is my first chance to have a go.

I just wrote a very long ramble, trying to work it out, but I've scrapped it because I couldn't get any further than the others so far.

Only inspiration I had was the Beatles' "Glass Onion", but that is obviously no help at all. The main difficulty is that you can't have "Heart of glass" AND "Sound of silence" because there's only one "of"!

I'm going to start with

I love the sound of BREAKING glass

Gnomon - time to move on

This suggests the solution is

Don't go breaking my heart

I'll try and figure the rest out later

Good! My method is to hang around until Gnomon turns up.

Gnomon - time to move on

GO now

I'm guessing those last two - never heard of them - but they seem to fit
