Music lyric trivia

OK, some of these are dead easy and some require extra credit...see how many you can get. And no, this is not an open book (e.g. Internet use is barred) test! (No, it's not about food or Cookie Monster, but he is my hero and I liked this picture. Contrary to the tune Sesame Street has been forced to sing, cookies are *not* just a "sometimes food.")

These range from rock to punk to country to alternative to folk.

Person with the most correct guesses gets a $4 bar of Portland's own Moonstruck Chocolate. (Yes, they're *that* good.)If you are not a chocolate person, we'll negotiate.

1. he could lick 'em by smiling
he could leave 'em to hang

2. There was a time you let me know
What's really going on below
But now you never show it to me, do you?

3. she's just a corn-fed white-bred chick
born in the right zip code
she comes with a gold card
she'll never have to pay for it

4. No evolution
Sometimes it depresses me
The same old same
We keep repeating history

5. Feel the breeze deep on the inside look you down into your well
If you can you'll see the world in all his fire

I hope my legs don't break
walking on the moon

7. And the beer I had for breakfast wasn't bad,
So I had one more for dessert.
Then I fumbled in my closet through my clothes
And found my cleanest dirty shirt.

8. You were always spoiled with a thousand toys but still you cried all night.
Your mother who neglected you owes a million dollars tax.

9. Good morning, I'm leaving
And I'll be back in a few days
But that's just the way it is, you know

Ja ne sais pas ce que je
Veux mais je l'aurai
Je veux semer la terreur dans la rue

PS Robert Tres, seeing as how you came up with some of these, you can't play, 'cause that would be cheating. And you eat enough chocolate anyhow.

2 is Leonard Cohen "Hallelujah", 7 is Kris Kristofferson "Sunday Morning Coming Down" and 8 is the Rolling Stones "19th Nervous Breakdown." The rest I do not know.

mac said...

1) I dunno. But it looks like a Kenny Rodger's song.

2) No doubt about this one. It's Leanard Cohen. I prefer Bucleys version. Halleluja (sp?) is a BEAUTIFUL song!!!!

3)She sounds spoiled :-P

4) 5) 6) Shit, I suck at this!

7) I know Willie recorded it but I think Kris Kristofferson wrote it. Maybe Janis recorded it too?

8) Another spoiled chick? Is this a theme;-)

9) That seems like Country. I don't know much. But I know that I don't know Country.

10) Je ne parle pas francais tres bien :-P

I've got it. They are all from the same song: Elmo sings a happy good morning to your azalea.

Ily said...

OMG! I have no idea. No chocolate for me. :(

PS - I closed my blog temporarily. Although it looks like it's private, it's just closed. (Don't ask.) :/

Shay: You're good! I have to tell you and Mac, I was thinking of the Johnny Cash song in #7 - must have been a cover.
Mac: LMAO at 3 and 4 and 10! Give you a hint, though, #9 is not country.
Robert: You are a silly bastard. Want to sleep with me?
Ily: Inquiring minds want to know!!! Waaaaaaaah!

Senorita said...

Wow, I really suck at this. Sorry, no idea on any of these.

#6: The Polic "Walking On The Moon"

#8: The Stones "19th Nervous Breakdown:

#5: Nine Inch Nails "Head like a Hole"?

Beyond that, not a freakin' clue.

Number 6 - Walking on the Moon - The Police.

Number 7 - Sunday Morning Coming Down - I was thinking of Johnny Cash, too.

The rest - I just don't know. :)

I feel so dumb. I don't know any of these but I think I would like #7!

Have a great weekend RK!

Riot Kitty said...

Don't feel bad! Some of these may be obscure.

#1 is Bowie (great, wigsf!) Ziggie Stardust
#6 is the Police, Walking on the Moon
#8 is the Stones (I forgot to mention that FB)

Answers coming in the next post...

I am not sure what is sadder...that I knew none or that, even after hearing the answer, I STILL knew none...

Riot Kitty said...

Darth: We're not done yet!
