"Our" spine? Two (or more) sharing one spine? Siamese twins involved? Dicephalic twins?

"Our" spine? Two (or more) sharing one spine? Siamese twins involved? Dicephalic twins? Neither, it should have been "spines" :-))

Lol, I never know on the LTPF so I figured it couldn't hurt to check... That's so very true. I did not notice any dicephalic twins among "us" but am sure if there were one (two)?, their spine would be shivering and maybe both their heads weeping. :-))

"Our" = you (Alhucema) and someone else? Exactly so More than one someone else? Yes Is this a true story? Yes FYOI? FSEI?

OK, it seems as if it's sleeping here.

I will help you out and give you a hint.

The word was "BROTHER".

Were the singer and the, um, singee siblings? Not sure how you mean this; the song can be sung by anyone with the same effect; however, this line of thought is definitely worth exploring Was one of them (or both) notorious? No

so - hearing the word "brother" sent a shiver down your collective spine?

did it mean someone had started singing a song you all hated? or a very sentimental song which you knew would tug at your heartstrings?

could the singer have been singing about his or her own brother? I mean maybe the singer had just lost his brother? or had someone in your group just lost a brother?

Let us assume the singer was a complete stranger. It is the song what matters. Try to focus on a different part of the statement I denoted as "OTRT".
A little help - no brother was lost, either in the song or in real life.

Did something bad happen to a brother in the song? Something good?
Did the song concern someone whose identity was not known and it finally turned out that it was someone's brother?
Was it a finale of one of the operas by Giuseppe Verdi?

Hi Alhucema, you've no doubt been a victim of the system purge of members login details. You can open a new account in the same name but unfortunately your post count reverts to zero. See the chatroom for lots of discussion on the matter.

In the meantime (until you make it back this way) i'm moving your puzzle into Limbo . Hope you get back to us soon.

Peter
