    Guess the Lyric!

    Alrighty then, we've had guess the movie quote, so I think it's time we play a game of guess the lyric.

    I'll start by posting lyrics from three songs. Anyone who gets one right can post 3 (or fewer) lyrics of their own and so forth. Let's try not to include anything too obscure

    1. (Tricky)
    "You travelled from Dublin,
    you said you'd change the world,
    you sing like Sinatra,
    always"

    2. (REALLY easy)
    "But wait a minute, isn't this?"
    "Yeah, yes it is"
    "But I thought the old lady dropped it into the ocean in the end?"
    "Well baby, I went down and got it for you"
    "Aww. You shouldn't have"

    3. (Maybe tough)
    "I cannot take this anymore
    I'm saying everything I've said before
    All these words they make no sense
    I find bliss in ignorance
    Less I hear the less you'll say
    But you'll find that out anyway
    Just like before... "

    Enjoy!

    1) I CAN ONLY DISAPPOINT U - Mansun

    2) Oops! ...I Did It Again - Britney Spears

    3) One Step Closer - Linkin Park


    OK, here are mine...

    1) A flask I drink of sober tea, While relay cameras monitor me
    And the buzz surrounds it does
    Buzz surrounds
    Buzz surrounds

    Closed eyed sky wide open
    Unlimited girl unlimited sigh
    Elsewhere, Indefinitely, Far away
    Magnifies and deepens, Ready to sing
    My sixth sense peacefully placed on my breath
    And listening


    2) From Luxembourg to Rome
    from Berlin to the moon
    from Paris to Lausanne
    from Athens to the sun
    our car became a spacecraft
    flashing through the world
    crashed down in Amsterdam


    3) meet me there, in the blue
    where words are not and feeling
    remains. sincerity
    trust me to throw myself into your door
    i go in circles running down.
    i dream to heal your wounds
    but i bleed myself.

    4) in the shadows buried in me lies a child's toy
    in the shadows the name is unknown to me
    in the shadows grey crusaders with tails
    mother made.in the shadows will to become their
    pride.
    in the shadows i climbed mountains for chairs
    don't look down
    try this figure out memorize their words for
    hope

    1. Massive Attack - Group Four (terrific song)

    2. Cardigans - Daddy's Car

    4. Sunny day real estate - Shadows

    *jumps up and down* my turn!!

    We have very similar music tastes, Creole

    ---

    1: Little bag a bones been out all night
    Little bag a bones been out all night
    Can you hear him scratchin' at the screen door
    Can you hear him scratchin' at the screen door
    Little bag a bones been out all night

    He needs some pettin' and lovin' on his head
    He needs some pettin' and lovin' on his rain soaked hide
    He's circlin' around my ankle
    He's circlin' around my ankle
    He needs some pettin' and lovin' on his hide
    Hey kitty won't you come inside

    2: Stickshifts and safetybelts,
    Bucket seats have all got to go.
    When we're driving in the car,
    It makes my baby seem so far.
    I need you here with me,
    Not way over in a bucket seat.
    I need you to be here with me,
    Not way over in a bucket seat.

    3: It's in natural grace
    Or watching young lives shape
    It's in minor keys
    Solutions and remedies
    Enemies becoming friends
    When bitterness ends

    4: The future teaches you to be alone
    The present to be afraid and cold
    So if I can shoot rabbits
    Then I can shoot fascists

    Bullets for your brain today
    But we'll forget it all again
    Monuments put from pen to paper
    Turns me into a gutless wonder

    ----

    They're pretty easy if you ask me ... I've been easy on you all this time

    Feel The Pain - Dinosaur Jr.


    Here's mine...

    I met you in the third grade
    I didn't know that you liked lemonade
    I met you another year later
    You wore a red sweater with an alligator
    We chased the ice cream truck across the street
    And I thought you seemed kind of neat
    We held hands as we walked to the swings in the park.

    (chorus)
    You're my girl
    I'm your man
    I don't care if we live in a garbage can
    I'm your man
    You're my gal
    I'm so glad that we are pals.

    And I tried so hard to resist
    When you held me in your handsome fist
    And reminded me of the night we kissed
    And of why I should be leaving

    Saz, you had to pick a songwriter that I absolutely LOVE!

    That is:
    Marlene on the Wall by Suzanne Vega

    Ok, here's mine (and I could make it really hard and post Spanish lyrics but I ain't going to)
    I go to my room to turn on the T.V.
    I sit myself down
    And I start laughing hard
    'Cause this man he's asking for money
    He says "if you send me lots of cash I'll send you
    Stuff to make you rich fast"
    It's such a wonderful country
    But the man he's burning it down

    I know the name of the song, it is Red Sweater, but I can't remember the name of the band! The Fish or something like that? And I have no idea what "ska" is!

    Sounded like something along the lines of ska. I just can't pin it on a certain band. Oh well, looks like I'll have to cheat and consult lyrics.com or something.

    Edit: PS, I really don't cheat, I just give up until someone who truly knows it comes along.

    Nicky, I must say that I'm impressed. I didn't think that you listened to that sort of music.

    BTW, check out this link http://www.ataris.com/board/Forum1/HTML/002733.html for some commentary on ska. Some ska bands I like are: the impossibles, soup of the day, less than jake, mighty mighty bosstones, animal chin. I like a lot of punk, ska, and hardcore music.

    Well, sometimes I have alternative radio stations on and I might here something I like, or if I am round a friend's house I might hear something there.

    I think people can miss out on a lot if they restrict what they will listen too. I will listen to something at least once to decide whether I like it or not.

    I know I have heard that song somewhere and the name Red Sweater rings a bell so I reckon I probably heard it on the radio or something. If I owned the CD I would know the name of the band!

    So come on what is it? I am still convinced it has something to do with FISH.

    well good golly, i havent been able to guess any of these, guess its just not the kind of music i listen too, but maybe i will have to start, the lyrics don't seem half bad.
    just to give the thread a little diversity i am going to take it in a whole nother direction.. who can guess mine?

    I get up on Sunday, around 8:15
    Just to get the paper, that I never read.
    'cause i know, she'll be there, barely in her robe,
    sitting on her front porch painting on her toes.
    Her husband's always on the road.

    -chorus-
    oh, Mrs. Steven Rudy, you don't know what you do to me.
    Every night i dream one day of being with you.
    oh, Mrs. Steven Rudy, you're the neighborhood beauty.
    but, that wedding ring's as ugly as you husband is to you.
    ...
    Some say the world will end in fire, Some say in ice.
    From what I've tasted of desire
    I hold with those who favor fire.

    i am going to post another when i get home, i can't think of exactly how the lyrics go, so i will listen when i get home and post another one, it might be a little harder.
