Let's see if I get more hits via non-LJ folk. Guess the song title and band.:

Let it lift you off the ground
Starry eyes, and love is all around
I can take you where you want to go



If morning's echo says we've sinned,
well, it was what I wanted now.
And if we're the victims of the night,
I won't be blinded by light.
Angel of the Morning – Juice Newton (Guessed by [livejournal.com profile] petranef)

To read the signs and walk away.
It's only time that heals the pain
And makes the sun come out again.
It's Raining Again – Supertramp (Guessed by [livejournal.com profile] mallt)

They say the Devil's water, it ain't so sweet.
You don't have to drink right now.

When You Were Young – The Killers (Guessed by [livejournal.com profile] conejita_diabla)

I have here a cask of most magical wine
A vintage that blessed every ship in the line.
It's wrung from the blood of sailor's who died
Young white bodies adrift in the tide.



We we're thinking we would never be apart
With your name tattooed across my heart
Who would have thought it would end up like this?



I study nuclear science, I love my classes
I got a crazy teacher, he wears dark glasses
Things are going great, and they're only getting better
The Future's So Bright, I Gotta Wear Shades - Timbuk 3 (Guessed by [livejournal.com profile] conejita_diabla and [livejournal.com profile] thebrucie)

What does it matter to ya
When you got a job to do
You gotta do it well
You gotta give the other fellow hell.
Live & Let Die - Paul McCartney (Guessed by [livejournal.com profile] mallt)

Love is the leech
sucking you up
Love is the vampire
drunk on your blood.
The Beast - Concrete Blond (Guessed by [livejournal.com profile] ladytaryn)

Tougher than diamonds, rich like cream
Stronger and harder then a bad-girl's dream.
The power of Love – Huey Lewis and the News (Guessed by [livejournal.com profile] conejita_diabla)

When you got a job to do
You gotta do it well
You gotta give the other fellow hell.

(March) I'm gonna march you down the aisle.

And makes the sun come out again.

They've got to catch me if they want me to hang

Tearing up the highway like a big old dinosaur

The Boys of Summer - Don Henley (Guessed by [livejournal.com profile] ersatz_marduk)

Sergeant O'Leary is walkin the beat
At night he becomes a bartender
He works at Mister Cacciatores
Down on Sullivan Street
Across from the medical center
And he's tradin in his Chevy for a Cadillac
Movin' Out - Billy Joel (Guessed by [livejournal.com profile] ersatz_marduk)

You know what I'm gonna do? I'm gonna get myself a 1967 Cadillac Eldorado convertible, hot pink, with whale skin hubcaps and all leather cow interior and big brown baby seal eyes for headlights. Yeah! And I'm gonna drive around in that baby at 115 miles an hour, getting 1 mile per gallon, sucking down quarter pounder cheeseburgers from McDonald's in the old-fashioned non- biodegradable Styrofoam containers! And when I'm done suckin' down those grease ball burgers I'm gonna wipe my mouth on the American flag and then toss the Styrofoam containers right out the side, and there ain't a God-damned thing anybody can do about it. You know why? Because we got the bombs, that's why!

I've seen a tough man cry, I've seen a loser win
And a sad man grin, I heard an honest man lie.

On every page, every magazine
So wild and free, so far from me
You're all I want, my fantasy

Lyric Quiz

jamesq: (Default)
I sat down to write, but the creative taps are all dry today, so it's time for a lyric quiz. These ones all have personal significance. As usual, guess the artist and song.

Just let me close my eyes, memorize
The way things are this minute
So when you're gone I can go on
Hold On - Santana
Guessed by [livejournal.com profile] nikitaa

But at night I'd have these wonderful dreams
Some kind of sensuous treat.
Not zucchini, fettucini, or bulgar wheat,
But a big warm bun and a huge hunk of meat.
Cheeseburger in Paradise - Jimmy Buffet
Guessed by [livejournal.com profile] wackynephews

Ain't nobody livin, in a perfect world
Everybodys out there, cryin to be heard
Now I got a new fire, burnin in my eyes
Lightin up the darkness, movin like a meteorite
All Fired Up - Pat Benatar
Guessed by [livejournal.com profile] nikitaa

Resist and then later you find out there's more regret in not doing the sin.
Everyone Else Has Had More Sex Than Me - TISM
Guessed by [livejournal.com profile] wendy_licious

We don't like What we don't understand
In fact it scares us
And this monster is mysterious at least
Bring your guns! Bring your knives!
Save your children and your wives
We'll save our village and our lives
We'll kill the Beast!
The Mob Song - Beauty & the Beast, Original Movie Cast
Guessed by [livejournal.com profile] vilashna

And I've been knocking but no one answers
And I've been knocking most of the day
And I've been calling, "Oh hey hey Johnny.
Can't you come out to play"?
Empty Garden - Elton John
Guessed by [livejournal.com profile] ersatz_marduk
jamesq: (Default)
And you ask me what I want this year
And I try to make this kind and clear
Just a chance that maybe we'll find better days
Cuz I don't need boxes wrapped in strings
And desire and love and empty things
Just a chance that maybe we'll find better days

So take these words
And sing out loud
Cuz everyone is forgiven now
Cuz tonight's the night the world begins again

And it's someplace simple where we could live
And something only you can give
And thats faith and trust and peace while we're alive
And the one poor child that saved this world
And there's 10 million more who probably could
If we all just stopped and said a prayer for them

So take these words
And sing out loud
Cuz everyone is forgiven now
Cuz tonight's the night the world begins again

I wish everyone was loved tonight
And somehow stop this endless fight
Just a chance that maybe we'll find better days

So take these words
And sing out loud
Cuz everyone is forgiven now
Cuz tonight's the night the world begins again
Cuz tonight's the night the world begins again
