10th Sep 2001, 19:18
well there was a movie line quiz so i thought that a song lyric quiz would be nice too
name the song and the artist :)


1 I feel it in my fingers, I feel it in my toes
2 I'm a million different people from one day to the next
3 It's calling you my dear, out of reach
4 Let me get over you the way you've gotten over me too
5 Everything going jackanory, in touch with his own mortality
6 He wants to be like you man, he likes you more than I do
7 Mini skirts were in style when she danced down the aisle back in '63
8 You know we never get far driving around in a stolen police car
9 The love that I was giving you was never in doubt
10 I believe in Hollywood, don't believe that love must bring despair
11 In my dreams I'm dying all the time
12 You and me were meant to be walking free, in harmony
13 You can wait for a lifetime to spend your days in the sunshine
14 Pour my life into a paper cup. The ashtray's full and I'm spillin' my guts
15 I'm losing, I'm bluesing, but you can save me from madness
16 We like our fun and we never fight. You can't dance and stay uptight
17 Don't ask me because I don't know why
18 As I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I take a look at my life
19 You're just like an angel, your skin makes me cry
20 There's things I want. There's things I think I want
21 You're the book that I kept open and now I've got to know much more
22 Feeling kinda groovy working on a movie (Yeah, right!)
23 Just like the prodigal son I've returned. Anyone stepping on me, you get burned
24 But if your mind's neglected, stumble you might fall
25 Everybody needs a bosom for a pillow
26 We don't talk about love, we only want to get drunk
27 Well the truth may come in strange disguises. Send the message to your mind
28 We're the litter on the breeze, we're the lovers on the streets
29 Lying there dying in each other's arms "Oh" you said to me "Don't worry"
30 Tomorrow could be too easy and today is gonna be too near
31 Do you think I miss you? Do you think I care? Do you think I'd lay down and die?
32 Stepping through the door like a troubador whiling just an hour away
33 Is it because I lied when I was seventeen?
34 I had to crucify some brother today
35 If there was a problem, yo, I'd solve it. Check out the hook while my DJ revolves it
36 So give me your heart, make it real or else forget about it
37 Mesdames, Messieurs, le disk-jockey est de retour
38 I'm moving like a train into some foreign land
39 Baby, how can we make love, if we can't make amends?
40 Did you ever stop to notice the crying earth, the weeping shore?
41 You can try to resist, try to hide from my kiss
42 And you know it ain't fiction just a natural fact
43 Right about now, the funk soul brother
44 I was right about the whales and dolphins, whales and dolphins
45 Sometimes the snow comes down in June, sometimes the sun goes round the moon
46 I believe that junk food tastes so good because it's bad for you
47 She's into superstitions, black cats and voodoo dolls
48 I'm your hell, I'm your dream, I'm nothing in between
49 When I'm with you I am filled with emotion, can't you see that I'm giving you devotion?
50 Look at me babe, if I'm with you, you know you gotta have hope
51 Don't want to close my eyes, I don't want to fall asleep
52 She leads a lonely life
53 I know that was then but it could be again
54 It's that little souvenir of a terrible year which makes me wonder why
55 Just buy a ticket and take a summer holi-holiday
56 My power, my pleasure, my pain
57 So when I'm lying in my bed, thoughts running through my head
58 I'm singing it loud and I don't care
59 I was born long ago. I am the chosen, I'm the one
60 Don't believe in love, don't believe in hate, don't believe in anything
61 Things ain't cooking, in my kitchen
62 Don't tell me it's not worth trying for
63 Don't cry for me next door neighbour
64 We'll spend our time with a bottle of wine and a love that knows no human state
65 Every artist is a cannibal, every poet is a thief
66 Honey came in and she caught me red-handed creepin' with the girl next door
67 Our love is a mystery, girl let's get inside it
68 I wish I could freeze this space in time, the way I feel for you inside
69 I guess it doesn't really matter about the rain 'cause we'll get through it anyway
70 Then the lover that you miss will come to you on these cold, cold nights
71 And we'll all be lonely tonight and lonely tomorrow
72 Though that was a good solution, hanging with the raisin girls
73 From the rooftop shout it out
74 And boy, I really miss you and all I want to do is kiss you
75 You should know, I could tell you're on some foolish mission
76 The girls need a break. Tonight we're gonna take the chance to get out on the town
77 Touch me now, I close my eyes and dream away
78 They had style, they had grace. Rita Hayworth gave good face
79 Move in, now move out. Hands up, now hands down
80 Take me back to my sweet lavida. Find my love, my dolce vita
81 In No Man's Land
82 But then the sound of my desperate calls echo off these dungeon walls
83 I don't want to lose your love
84 I had an uncle who once played for Red Star Belgrade
85 So hurry up and bring your jukebox money
86 They hung out with folks like Dennis Hopper, Bob Seger, Sonny & Cher
87 I know just what you're saying so please stop explaining
88 You are my one and only. You gave that joy to me when my whole life was lonely
89 Walk me down the lane where shadows will be, will be
90 We'll be like Thelma and Louise
91 One kiss, heaven isn't far
92 There's a fire between us, so where is your God?
93 Open your mind, surely there's time to be with me
94 But I just bit on my lip and my face began to frown
95 Whatever happened to the life we once knew? Can we really live without each other?
96 I woke up and called this morning. The tone of your voice was a warning
97 With the lights out, it's less dangerous. Here we are now, entertain us
98 Mad pleasure, blowing up your whole world. Whatever's clever, I got endless cash
99 Another turning point, a fork stuck in the road
100 Run and tell all of the angels, this could take all night
101 When the rainy days are dying, gotta keep on, keep on trying
102 In a minute I'm needing to hold her. In an hour I'm cold, cold as stone
103 Watch this space. I'm open to falling from grace
104 Please understand if love ends, then I promise you, I promise you
105 But you are in my head, swimming forever in my head
106 I could put my arms around every boy I see
107 Step one, we can have lots of fun. Step two, there's so much we can do
108 It just keeps getting better. I want to spend the rest of my life with you by my side
109 And I have never felt this way since the day I gave your love away
110 When you coming home, dad? I don't know when, we'll get together then
111 Your skin. Oh yeah your skin and bones turn into something beautiful
112 Got your lipstick mark still on your coffee cup
113 Cajun queen with another side, she was a schoolboy's dream
114 Still I can't let you go. It's unnnatural. You belong to me, I belong to you
115 You got me wrapped around your finger
116 Lift your open hand, strike up the band and make the fireflies dance
117 I don't know where my soul is, I don't know where my home is
118 Shake your head to the sound, put your hands on the ground
119 I was lying on the grass of Sunday morning of last week, indulging in my self-defeat
120 Show me how you want it to be. Tell me baby 'cause I need to know now
121 You gotta rub me the right way if you wanna be with me
122 Those tenements are memories of where you've risen from
123 Read it in the papers tell me what it's all about
124 I'll show you mine if you show me yours
125 I felt all flushed with fever, embarrassed by the crowd
126 Allow, if you're still alive, six to eight years to arrive
127 I'm cold and I am shamed, lying naked on the floor
128 Try givin' up the make up, try givin' up the dressin' up
129 You could be so many people, if you make that break for freedom
130 So let's do it like they do on the Discovery channel
131 There were days when the sun was so cruel that all the tears turned to dust
132 I blame you for the moonlit sky and the dream that died with the eagle's flight
133 The more I know, the less I understand
134 I'm in heaven with my boyfriend, my laughing boyfriend
135 At least you'll know you can always go on Ricki Lake
136 And that's what takes me high, higher than I've ever been before
137 There are hills and mountains between us, always something to get over
138 And now every mother can choose the colour of her child. That's not nature's way
139 I'm the one to take you on, don't underestimate me boy, I'll make you sorry you were born
140 You can tell your ma I moved to Arkansas
141 The chills that you spill up my back keep me filled with satisfaction when we're down
142 And all the men are gargoyles dipped long in Irish stout
143 Too many protest singers, not enough protest songs
144 Move out of my way, I know you're feeling me 'coz you like it like this
145 The embers never fade in your city by the lake
146 Now don't go wasting my precious time. Get your act together, we could be just fine
147 I took her to a supermarket
148 Like a moth to a flame, burned by the fire. My love is blind, can't you see my desire?
149 Give up yourself unto the moment, let's make this moment last
150 Don't try to tell me what I already know. Don't criticise me 'cause I'm running the show
151 You got facial hair like a polar bear. You blow up like a toad and then explode
152 A mystery, unravel it
153 You see, I work in a factory. I don't wanna be late
154 Time can bend your knee, time can break your heart
155 Hanging out the passenger side of his best friend's ride
156 Think of tomorrow, we beg, steal or borrow to make all we can in the sun
157 And though you're gone we're still a team. Through your family, I'll fulfill your dreams
158 You think I'm gonna spend your cash, I won't
159 I turned on the lights, the TV and the radio. Still, I can't escape the ghost of you
160 Big like LeAnn Rimes, because I'm all about value
161 I look up at your house and I can almost hear you shout down to me
162 It's a one-way ticket to a madman situation
163 But I've seen more broken hearts than you can count the bullets in a war
164 Who can deny the joy it brings, when you've found that special thing
165 You can give it to me when I need to come along
166 I used to think that I could not go on and life was nothing but an awful song
167 Some people don't dance if they don't know who's singing
168 Nobody calling on the 'phone, 'cept for the Pope, maybe, in Rome
169 You think I'd leave your side baby? You know me better than that
170 Get back you flea infested mongerel
171 The things you say. You're purple prose just gives you away
172 You're obsessed with all my secrets, you always make me cry
173 He's not a prince, he's not a king, she's not a work of art or anything
174 I've got two tickets for Iron Maiden baby
175 I'm screaming at night as if I thought you'd hear me
176 Where did you run to? Where did you go?
177 You know your culture from your trash, you know your plastic from your cash
178 I, I don't wanna find another way to make it though the day without you
179 Like a whirlpool it never ends and it's you girl making it spin
180 All you people can't you see, can't you see? How your love's affecting our reality
181 It's enough to make kings and vagabonds believe the very best
182 It was a slap in the face how quickly I was replaced
183 You know you shouldn't do it, you see no reason why.
184 And I wish to you joy and happiness. But above all this, I wish you love
185 Never ever forget that I've got you and you've got me
186 And the way that I feel right now, Oh Lord may it go
187 But we unleashed a lion, gnashed his teeth and bit the recessed lady's breast
188 Act like you know, Rico. I know what Bo don't know
189 No No, No No No No, No No No No, No No
190 And when they went to their church they shook and lurched all over the church floor
191 Yo, listen up , here's a story about a little guy
192 My world crumbles when you are not near
193 Give me something I can hold. With that something I will grow
194 Walk in shadow, move in silence. Guard against extra-terrestrial violence
195 We know how we're wrecking your party
196 I'm pushing an elephant up the stairs
197 Oh you get me ready in your '56 chevy, why don't we go sit down in the shade?
198 Plant a seed, plant a flower, plant a rose
199 She asked me what we were gonna do. I said we'd start with a bottle of Moet for two
200 Well, we know I'm going away and how I wish, I wish it weren't so

Wow, dingducky, you must be bored!

Read about the first 20, knew about half of them, but I don't have time to read them all, let alone type the answers! I'll maybe try again when I'm not at work - but since I'm going out straight from work tonight, I expect someone else with too much time on their hands will have answered by then!
