Lyric quiz!

November 7th, 2005 (10:57 am)

Haven't done one of these for ages, so....

1) Room shake, earthquake / Find a way to stay awake

2) Some dance to remember / Some dance to forget

3) Remember to let her under your skin / Then you'll begin

4) Here's the thing / We started out friends

5) We are young / Heartache to heartache we stand

6) Used to have a little now I have a lot

7) Now you're punching and you're kicking /And you're shouting at me

8) We'll take the trail marked on your father's map

9) Bad dreams in the night / They told me I was going to lose the fight

10) I am waiting / At the counter / For the man / To pour the coffee

11) Say it ain't so, I will not go / Turn the lights off, Carry me home

12) But my friends keep telling me to give it up / Saying I'm too young, I ought to live it up

13) Oh he does it every time / It's just his permanent disguise

14) Jennifer, Alison, Phillipa, Sue, Deborah, Annabel too

15) "I Am The Walrus", "Fat Bottomed Girls" / "Yellow Submarine", What does this mean?

Have fun and Happy Monday! (As normal, I'll screen the answers till tonight)

Number 14 - its gotta be Beautiful South. I'm pretty sure the song's called My Pencil Case or Write A Song For You...

(Odd. On their website the only song it could possibly be was Foundations. Strange...)

Dalek - D'oh [__kali__]

Beautiful South, yes and the one about loving you from the bottom of their pencil case.

Song For Whoever

Posted by: Daveosaurus (southerndave)
Posted at: November 7th, 2005 10:39 am (UTC)

2) Eagles, "Hotel California".
3) Beatles, "Hey Jude".
5) Pat Benatar, "Love is a Battlefield".

...Damn, but that's a hard batch...

Six points! I thought they were a nice mix myself, but I guess I'm biased. ;)

Posted by: Daveosaurus (southerndave)
Posted at: November 8th, 2005 10:40 am (UTC)

I did say "hard" not "bad" if that makes it sound better.

Of the ones I actually knew but didn't guess... it's been close to two decades since I've heard "People Are People" or "Tom's Diner"; I've never known the words to "Wuthering Heights" (I honestly can never make out what Kate Bush is warbling about) and "Papa Don't Preach" fails to rise above my personal loathing of all things Madonna.

Booster Dreams [jennymalfoy]

Wuthering Heights is an odd song that way. I could never understand a word in it for years, until suddenly one day it just sorta clicked. Similiar to those times when you suddenly realise that you've been mis-hearing a lyric for years. And suddenly all becomes clear....

dalek

I sort of liked the tune but could never make out the words. Could make out a few of the words to "Babooshka" but they never play that one on the radio any more.

And I would love to hear the Pat Benatar version spoken of elsewhere...

Posted at: November 7th, 2005 12:21 pm (UTC)

2) The Eagles, Hotel California
3) The Beatles, Hey Jude

5) Pat Benatar, Love is a Battlefield
6) Jennifer Lopez, Jenny from the Block (aka the lying hypocritical poser's song)

9) Kate Bush, Wuthering Heights (I prefer the Pat Benatar version myself)
10) Suzanne Vega, Tom's Diner
11) Blink 182, All The Small Things (canonically a favourite of Willow, at least while drunk)

13) I can't remember the artist, but the song is "Drop Dead Gorgeous"
14 The Beautiful South, Song for Whoever

Posted by: Sentimental yet sardonic (booster17)
Posted at: November 8th, 2005 03:47 am (UTC)
Nooooooooo!

Seventeen points, and now I have to go seek out Pat Benatar's version of Wuthering Heights you evil, evil person.

3) Hey Jude by the Beatles
4) Since You've Been Gone by Kelly Clarkson
5) Love Is A Battlefield by Pat Benatar
6) Jenny From The Block by Jennifer Lopez
7) People are People by A Perfect Circle

Bouncy Ball [crazy_lil_loud1]

Seventeen points, unless A Perfect Circle covered the Depeche Mode song. Unfortunately, I've never heard of them....

Posted by: Queen of Quarks (gianfared)
Posted at: November 8th, 2005 06:23 am (UTC)

*nods* I couldn't remember who did the popular version, but then I have an aversion to Depeche Mode (Tom Petty too just in case you wonder *grins*). A Perfect Circle does have a version of the song, but it's not mainstream. That's me and my eccentricities. :P

6. Jennifer Lopez, Jenny from the Block?
14. Mambo Number 5 by Lou...

and I know 11...

Posted at: November 8th, 2005 03:49 am (UTC)

Just the two points I'm afraid. A couple of people thought 14 was Lou Bega...
