Time for a quiz

It's been a while since we played my favourite game...Does anyone want to have a go?

Step 1: Get your playlist together, put it on random, and play
Step 2: Pick your favorite lines from the first 25 songs that play
Step 3: Post and let everyone you know guess what song the lines come from
Step 4: Cross out the songs when someone guesses correctly
P.S: no cheating and pasting the lyrics into a search engine!!

01. I wish we were farmers, I wish we knew how
to grow sweet potatoes and milk cows

02. when the world is too dark, and I need the light inside of me

I'm thinking that it must be love

05. this room cost 2,000 dollars a month
you can believe it man it's true
somewhere a landlord's laughing till he wets his pants

waiting for the sunset to come, people going home
jump out from behind them and shoot them in the head

to terrorise y'all's neighborhood
and whosoever shall be found
without the soul for getting down
must stand and face the hounds of hell
and rot inside a corpse's shell
- Thriller, Michael Jackson; anonypooh recognised this

16. but I left my jacket with you
and you know my friends
so maybe
you will get my number

17. I broke a tooth, I've torn my shirt
I lost the zip of my favourite skirt,
then you told me that I was a bore in bed

18. and everyone is shitting
on their friends, on their love
on their oaths, on their honour
on their graves

suicide right on stage
would it be enough for your teenage lust
would it help to ease the pain? ease your brain?

Aaargh - how did I not recognise 'I will follow' and 'Shout'?

Both of which we own. But recognised something from the sound track of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid?

Goes to sit in the corner in disgrace....

>>Goes to sit in the corner in disgrace....

Joining you there.

Fancy missing my favourite song by favourite band!
Jun. 18th, 2008 10:02 pm (UTC)
Not your finest moment...
Jun. 18th, 2008 09:45 pm (UTC)
No, not Shout. But your other guesses are correct ;-)
Jun. 18th, 2008 09:48 pm (UTC)
Doh. So obvious. I am such a dingbat it's Stripped! The shame!

I've been listening to a lot of TFF recently. I blame that.
Jun. 18th, 2008 09:57 pm (UTC)
Well, you've just redeemed yourself. It is DM's Stripped, of course.
Jun. 18th, 2008 09:40 pm (UTC)
Hmm - we don't have a lot of music in common! I recognise 3 - oddly enough, all the threes - and none of them because I actually own them -

But 3 is Sultans of Swing by Dire Straits (S2C used to know Mark Knopfler - an dI used to have the album).

13 is Twenty Years by Placebo - D-d is a fan.

And 23 is Raindrops Keep Falling on my head, by Sacha Distel which I remember from Butch Cassidy.
Jun. 18th, 2008 09:47 pm (UTC)
Actually, my Raindrops version is the original, by BJ Thomas -- but that doesn't matter. And bogwitch's guess of Shout is incorrect.
Jun. 18th, 2008 10:19 pm (UTC)
15. Thriller - Michael Jackson
Jun. 19th, 2008 11:18 am (UTC)
Yes! But...have another look at #12 -- surely you can't NOT recognise this? You've been humming along to it often enough!
Jun. 19th, 2008 12:16 pm (UTC)
lol I was tired! That would be Fire Sign by Monsieur David Berkeley then

#9 Soft Cell - Sex Dwarf
Jun. 19th, 2008 11:20 am (UTC)
You're absolutely right!
Jun. 19th, 2008 03:27 am (UTC)
19. Only Rock and Roll by the Rolling Stones

Fantastic! I wasn't sure anyone would get this, so I'm pleased you did.
Jun. 19th, 2008 09:41 pm (UTC)
10 is decemberists - mariner's revenge song
I hate coming in late for this, all the other ones I would have recognised where already guessed by other people lol ... and I don't know/recognise any of the other ones left
Jun. 19th, 2008 09:55 pm (UTC)
I had a feeling it might be you who'd get this one!

I hate coming in late for this, all the other ones I would have recognised where already guessed

You sure? Never mind...better luck next time, eh?
