Lyric Challenge:

I used to do quizzes, etc. all the time on this blog. I think I'll try to do more of that this year. Name the song each of these lyrics came from:

1) I sung my song to Mr. Jimmy
Yeah, and he said one word to me, and that was "dead"

2) People asking questions lost in confusion,
Well I tell them there's no problem
Only solutions

3) Caviar and cigarettes
Well versed in etiquette
Extraordinarily nice

4) Top coat, top hat,
And I don't worry 'cause my wallet's fat.
Black shades, white gloves,
Lookin' sharp lookin' for love.

5) I wish you could swim
Like the dolphins
Like dolphins can swim
Though nothing
Will keep us together

6) But I just keep on rollin' along
With the grace from the Lord above.

7) We smoked cigarettes and stared at the moon

and my favorite lyric of all time:

8) I learned more from a three minute record, baby,
than I ever learned in school

1 Rolling Stones - You can't always get what you want
2 John Lennon - Watching the wheels
4 ZZ Top - Sharp dressed man
5 David Bowie - Heroes

just that, I thought I was a fan of music, but this quiz made me feel so sad and devastated... :)

#8 is a personal fave as well--No Surrender-The Boss
"Well, we made a promise, swore we'd always remember
No retreat, baby, no surrender
Like soldiers on a winter's night with a vow to defend
No retreat, baby, no surrender"

3 is Killer Queen by Queen and
4 is ZZ Top's Sharped Dressed Man. The others, no clue.

Dang, I thought these were too easy :)

I am glad each of you guys got a few. that makes me smile

Greg - I LOVE that song

I always thought that the Stones line was a reference to "Mr. Jimi," you-know-you, and a prediction of his death.

I was always an outside-the-box thinker like that.

David, yep, I think so too.

I got all of them except 6 & 7. I have no idea what they are ... ???

Wonder Boy said...

I got the first 4. #5 I don't know.
#6 Lenny Zemple - Whole Lotta Love
I am having a hard time with # 7 and #8 was easy knowing your feeling for the Boss.

Wonder Boy said...

I goofed. #6 IS Led Zeppelin but the song is Heartbreaker not WLL.

angie said...

Oh great. I missed the Led Zeppelin one. I just lost all my credibility! :P
