Stolen 'name that tune' meme
Tosy and Cosh posted lyrics to ten songs and expected us to guess. Since I came nowhere near to recognizing anything he posted, I decided I can do that, too.
Guess, you magnificent bastards, guess!
New: now with answers!
- Fresh and Delishussss, Voodoolulu
You just lost your job your girlfriend split
and your metrocard ran out
Your rent is past the phone ain't ringing
the IRS they got your bank account
your dealers downtown the sharks are knocking
- Tears on my pillow, Little Anthony and the Imperials
If we could start anew
I wouldn't hesitate
I'd gladly take you back
And tempt the hand of fate
- Jerk Out, The Time
I took her to my crib and I laid her down. Her body felt kinda right.
Maybe I was wrong but what the hell, I figured that was what she liked.
I said Baby, don't get too comfortable, cuz I really like to sleep alone.
- Jack Ruby, Camper Van Beethoven
'Cause he's a friend of that cloven-hoofed gangster the devil
He's been seen with the sheriff and the police
Drinking whiskey and water after hours, saying
"Let's do business, boys. The drinks are on me."
- Let Me In, R.E.M.
I only wish that I could hear you whisper down,
Mister fisherman, to a less peculiar ground.
He gathered up his loved ones and he brought them all around
To say goodbye, nice try.
- Still Thrives This Love, k.d. lang
I often question
Is it so
Tend to grow
Spawning the choices
And the woe
- If U Ever, Sinead O'Connor
U got into your car and drove as far
As u could and even further
And no matter how I sang
I just never can
Stop needing your hand
- Hey a Movie!, Kermit the Frog & other Muppets (The Muppet Movie)
There'll be crooks and cops!
There'll be villainy!
But with us on call
We'll fix it all real easily
- Cloud Dancing, Roches
Every morning I get up
Beautiful as the Goddess
Of Love in Enchanted Mountain.
Every night I go to bed
Seductive as Yang Kuei-fei,
The imperial concubine
- Love Circles, Squeeze
You're wearing matching dressing gowns
You think your life times just begun
You cut the cake but just the one slice
You're crawling back all through the night
Update: Have I ever mentioned that I rarely pay attention to lyrics? If I looked at this list again in an hour I'd feel good if I remembered more than two. Even for me, this is a messed up collection of music. There's maybe four songs on here I'd care to listen to.
Probably should have deleted this list and created a new one.
