Lyrics Quiz

There's an eclectic mix here. Some old, some new, some rock, some not so much....but sort of. Some of them are hard, others are too easy :)

Which song/artist each of these lyrics came from?


There's something happening here, and what it is ain't exactly clear

I get home at five o'clock
And I take myself out a nice, cold beer
Always seem to be wonderin'
Why there's nothin' goin' down here

A singer in a smokey room
A smell of wine and cheap perfume
For a smile they can share the night
It goes on and on and on and on

Life is what happens to you when you’re busy making other plans

And you can't fight the tears that ain't coming
Or the moment of truth in your lies
When everything feels like the movies
Yeah you bleed just to know you're alive

Look like nothing's gonna change
Everything still remains the same
I can't do what ten people tell me to do
So I guess I'll remain the same, yes

Read between the lines
What's fucked up and everything's alright
Check my vital signs
To know I'm still alive and I walk alone

I have my books
And my poetry to protect me
I am shielded in my armor
Hiding in my room
Safe within my womb
I touch no-one and no-one touches me

I suck at lyrics. The only one I knew was Simon & Gafunkel.

Jeff said...

Since nobody said the fourth one, I'm almost positive John Lennon said it. I don't know the song though...

Barbara(aka Layla) said...

Bruce, yep :)

Bob, you can't be good at everything.

Jeff - Beautiful Boy. (not you, the song, but you're really cute too)

I got most of them right away--I guess I'm in a good lyrics vibe lately. Otis has it right, and I sometimes recall these lines when I'm being pulled in many directions ....

4. John Lennon - Beautiful Boy
5. ?
6. Otis Redding - Sittin on the Dock of the Bay

These are the ones I knew before I looked at the answers. Upset I couldn't recall Rush.
