Stolen 'name that tune' meme, take 2
First version was a bit obscure. Here's a new list with songs I think most people could recognize, mostly. There are a couple, depending on your age and your position on the radio dial, that might be outside your muscial knowledge. Meaning, nothing batshit crazy, here.
Not that it necessarily helps. Even from popular songs, lyrics pasted with no context are still unrecognizable. Posted on someone's blog I'd wager I'd only get #10.
- Saw a silhouette across a fluorescent
Floating overhead, undoing his helmet
Through the murky beams and blue-green sea life
I saw him spinnin towards the moonlight
- So you feel misunderstood
Baby, have I got news for you
On being used, I could write a book
You don't wanna hear about it
- Go on now go walk out the door
just turn around now
'cause you're not welcome anymore
weren't you the one who tried to hurt me with goodbye
- She sits alone waiting for suggestions
He's so nervous avoiding all her questions
His lips are dry, her heart is gently pounding
Don't you just know exactly what they're thinking?
- you know you did, you know you did you know you did -- Just the one line, any other 2 lines would make it too easy
- Don't let them fool ya,
Or even try to school ya! oh, no!
We've got a mind of our own,
So go to hell if what you're thinking is not right!
- You let all my friends come over and meet
And you were so strange
You didn't have the decency to change the sheets
- I'm not superstitous...
About you But I can't take no chance
You got me spinnning Spinning
Baby I'm in a trance
- Wind blows cold from the west
I smell coffee, I smell doughnuts for the press (on their breath?)
A girl that I knew once years ago
Is tryin' to be reached on the phone
- I play along with the charade
There doesn't seem to be a reason to change
You know I feel so dirty when they start talking cute
I want to tell her that I love her but the point is probably moot
