Lyrics Quiz

My friend Tina did a Lyrics Quiz on her blog the other day, and I missed it! I would have totally gotten the Marky Mark one if Cassie hadn't beat me to it!

I think I'll do my own, and as Tina said, I have "eclectic" taste, so have fun!


Step 1: Put your MP3 player or whatever on random

Step 2: Post the first line from the first 25 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song.

Step 3: Here’s the fun part: YOU get to guess what song it is from just the one line; if you’re really good, you’ll know the artist as well!

Step 4: I'll color line when someone gets it right, linking to that someone, cause I’m nice like that.

Step 5: No cheating! And by cheating, I mean no looking them up on Google or any other search engine.

  1. Another summer day, has come and gone away in Paris and Rome (Stephanie guessed Home by Michael Buble, although the one on my ipod is actually by Blake Shelton)
  2. I could go out tonight, and find some stranger, it wouldn’t be wrong, no it wouldn’t be wrong
  3. I've been waiting, pacing along the halls ever since you left here. I've been cleaning, scrubbing the plates and weeding out the garden dear
  4. I don’t mind spending some time just hangin here with you
    Cause I don’t find many guys who treat me like you do
  5. I don’t remember what day it was, I didn’t notice what time it was
  6. Down in the valley, the valley so low, that's where my vegetables, my vegetables grow (CM got it- In the Valley of Vegetables by Laurie Bernker)
  7. She got a shack floating down the Pontchartrain (Britni got it- Love is Free by Sheryl Crow)
  8. Busted flat in Baton Rouge waiting for a train (Hair Girl got it- Janis Joplin, Me and Bobby McGee)
  9. Anyone who's ever had a heart, wouldn't turn around and break it (The Renee got it- Sweet Jane, and I have both versions on my ipod- Cowboy Junkies and Velvet Underground, which I like equally well)
  10. I don’t wanna see your face, I don’t wanna hear your name, I don't want a thing, just stay away baby (Hair Girl guessed Rod Stewart, but not that I know of)
  11. He’s a movie star, only drives rented cars. met him in a bar, said I know who you are. Took him to my party as they games were starting, bottles on the ground, are you ready now?
  12. You say, I only hear what I want to (Slim got it- Lisa Loeb "Stay")
  13. She said “It’s cold outside” as she hands me my raincoat (Sandra got it- 3 AM by Matchbox Twenty)
  14. So long ago I don’t remember when, that’s when they say I lost my only friend (sweet-seventeen got it- One Headlight by The Wallflowers)
  15. I went to a party last Saturday night, I didn’t get laid, I got in a fight (aj got it- Lita Ford- Kiss Me Deadly)
  16. Baby I get so scared inside and I don’t really understand, if it's love that’s on my mind or is it fantasy (Anonymous got it- Close My Eyes Forever by Lita Ford and Ozzy)
  17. I was sitting in my garden, when I saw a bumblebee (CM got it- Buzz Buzz by Laurie Bernker)
  18. Hey, hey, mama, said the way you move, gonna make you sweat, gonna make you groove (Tech Savvy Mama guessed Led Zeppelin and aj knew that it was Black Dog)
  19. You know the day destroys the night, night divides the day (Sandra got it- Break on Through by The Doors)
  20. It's getting near dawn, when lights close their tired eyes. I'll soon be with you my love, to give you my dawn surprise.
  21. Just yesterday morning they let me know you were gone, Susanne the plans they made put an end to you (Smoochiefrog got it- Fire and Rain by James Taylor)
  22. If I leave here tomorrow, would you still remember me? For I must be travelling on, now, 'cause there's too many places I've got to see. (Jennifer got it- Freebird by Lynyrd Skynyrd)
  23. Well I never been to heaven, but I been to Oklahoma. Well they tell me I was born there, but I really don't remember (not the first verse) (Hair Girl said Never Been to Spain by Elvis, although my version is by Three Dog Night)
  24. There are stars in the Southern sky, southward as you go. There is moonlight and moss in the trees (Joy got it- Seven Bridges Road by The Eagles)
  25. Sweet wonderful you, you make me happy with the things you do, oh, can it be so, this feeling follows me wherever I go (sweet-seventeen got it- You Make Lovin Fun by Fleetwood Mac)

DANG IT!!!! I totally knew #12! It's on the Reality Bites soundtrack that my #14 is from. ARGH!!!!

#21 is Fire and rain by James Taylor.

Gosh the rest of yours I have no clue on!

After looking them up, I should have known at least 2 more.

If I truly could understand what was said, I'd have gotten #22. I don't particularly care for #11, which is why I didn't remember those lyrics.

Yup, that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!

And my dear, VERY eclectic! :)

Ooooh! #7 is Love is Free - Sheryl Crow. That's the only one I knew that wasn't mentioned in the comments!

"My money's got no hold on me,
oh, everybody's makin' love,
Cuz love is free."

Now that will be STUCK.

Hair Girl said...

I have to let you know that I pulled 3 songs that were on your list. I had to move on to the next so as not to have duplicates. Paint boy and I had a great time, laughing over my taste in music. Crazy!
I linked back to you so maybe more will play.
