Author Comments: 

OK, I've seen this done for books and films, so why not music? Most (not all) of these are from famous artists, but not all are from singles. I've limited the list to pop / rock / soul / rap lyrics, but I think you'll find quite a variety. I'll add more soon.

Note: Only one quote will be used per artist.

I'm thrilled to take suggestions; just be careful and try to follow my 'one quote per artist' rule. If you have any doubts, email me at lbangs@hotmail.com to clear it. If you clear a lyric through me, I promise not to guess at it. ;)

One last note: I have very limited internet access on the weekend, so please don't give up hope if you post a guess on Saturday. I'll answer by early Monday at the latest.

#16 is Midnight Oil, Beds are Burning. #6 sounds like that Emerson, Lake, and Powers (Powell?) song ("come inside, come inside"). #11 sounds like REM. #14 and #17 are going to keep me up tonight, and it's too damn late for that. :)

16 is indeed Beds are Burning. Good job!

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

Emerson, Lake, and PALMER :)

#11 is REM - NightSwimming. Probably my favorite REM song, and one I can definitely relate to. #9 could be Hot Stuff (by Diana Ross?) #16 is Midnight Oil's beds are burning. #19 is a Beatles song?

11 is Nightswimming. Sorry, but someone beat you to the punch on 16, which is Beds are Burning. I've limited the list to one quote per artist, and since The Beatles are already on there (see below), that rules them out fo 19. Not a bad guess at all, though.

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

6 = YOU'VE GOT TO HIDE YOUR LOVE AWAY / The Beatles. (Emerson, Lake, and Palmer, Jim.)
12 is a Bob Dylan song, I think. 19 is early Beatles, but what?

So were you wondering how I could make such a lousy guess (I really thought it sounded like a line from that "show that never ends" song of theirs) or were you correcting my "Palmer/Powell" thing ('cause it was Powers first, and then Powell later - you have to wonder if the "P" initial was required when they were looking for a replacement - in any case, I couldn't remember who they were when they made that song whose title I don't know (or were you telling me that it was Powers when they made That Song?))?

Jim -- The Emerson, Lake, and Palmer song you're thinking of is Karn Evil 9. "Welcome back my friends to the show that never ends. We're so glad you could attend. Step inside, step inside." I agree that they intentionally found P's so that the band could continue to be called ELP.

Jim, I've only ever known them as Emerson, Lake, and Palmer. And I'm in no position to criticise anyone's lousy guesses :-)

Correct on 6, which is You've Got to Hide Your Love Away. 12's not the Dylan pick (although he is on the list somewhere...), and I've limited the list to one quote per artist, so that rules out the Beatles for 19. You are thinking in the right mode for 19, however.

Good job.

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

OK, #4 is Abba: Lay all your love on me (or the remake by Information Society, i suppose.) and #17 is Murray Head: One Night in Bangkok from the musical CHESS. and i *know* i know #15, but it'll come to me later...

Correct on both accounts. Great!

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

also, i meant to tell you, the last word of the quote should actually be "sunshine." as in, "i get my kicks above the waistline, sunshine." it rhymes, get it?

Oh, those lyrics we mishear when we're young... Thanks!

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

How 'bout this one: "His head was found in a driving wheel" (extra credit for identifying the original and the cover).

I'm thrilled to take suggestions; just be careful and try to follow my 'one quote per artist' rule. If you have any doubts, email me at lbangs@hotmail.com to clear it.

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

I believe number 12 is American Pie by Don MacLean.

No, this song predates American Pie by a few years. I searched the lyrics of American Pie, and I'm pretty sure these lyrics do not occur there. This song does perhaps share a somewhat similar feel with American Pie, so you may be on the right path.

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

# 30 is The Last Time I Saw Richard, Joni Mitchell

Correct. Very good!

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

#7 is "Country House" by Blur, and I will guess that #8 is "Sloop John B" by the Beach Boys.

Correct both times! Impressive!

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

22 is from London Calling, by The Clash.
14 is some song by Oasis, I don't know the name.

Is this you, Jenhowell? Let me know, as you are absolutely right about 22 being London Calling. 14 is indeed an Oasis song. Which one?

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

18= 6'1'' by Liz Phair! I love Liz!
-- Jenhowell

A great song by Liz. 18 is 6' 1". Great job, Jenhowell!

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

12 is The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down by the Band.

Straight from one of my favorite albums, number 12 is indeed The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down. Great job, sk!

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

I finally got one of these:
No. 15 - "Elderly Woman Behind the Counter in a Small Town" by Pearl Jam.
These are hard. This was probably one of the easiest, making my effort seemingly fruitless.

Actually, I got a couple more - sometimes you need time to get your mind acclimated to "reading," and not hearing lyrics:
21. Panic in Detroit (David Bowie)
19. So You Want to be a Rock 'n' Roll Star (the Byrds)
Until next time...

Interesting story about #24. My roommate actually knew it when he saw the lyric, so he provided me with the answer. The funny thing is that I had just borrowed his James Brown boxed set (4 funky CDs worth), and didn't even make the connection. So with that said, #24 is "The Payback" by James Brown.

Correct on all 4 guesses, kicking you out to the lead, DaveMog! I received the Brown box set (Star Time) for my birthday a year or so ago, and I definitely count it as one of the best box sets ever. I'm surprised it took so long for some one to get the Pearl Jam quote, seeing as it is a vital part of one of their bigger, earlier singles. Many people stabbed at the Byrds one, but you are the first to get it. I believe it is one of those lyrical lines everyone knows they know but have trouble placing. Kudos on Panic in Detroit, one of my favorite under-rated Bowie tunes.

I'm still a bit shocked nobody has scored the Dylan or U2 quotes...

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

Bob Dylan, eh?
How about #3? "Buckets of Rain?"

Bingo!

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

PEARL JAM! i knew i should've known that... ah well.

ok, so i have a guess for 32. is it West End Girls by Pet Shop Boys?

Pet Shop Boys - that has got to be right. I knew that I recognized it.

Correct!

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

Number 25 is perhaps Get What you Give by the New Radicals?? I know the last line is in that song, but I'm not sure about the first line.

Sorry, but 25 is not Get What You Give. It does have most of the second line, but none of the first. Keep trying!

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

I think that #25 is Get What You Give by the New Radicals. I'm not positive that the first line is in that song, so this is just a shot in the dark.

I don't think that this is the artist you're looking for, but is #9 is The Playmates (That song about a little Nash Rambler).

Not the one I was looking for, true, but since that song is titled Beep Beep, I can hardly count that as wrong now, can I? The point is yours.

I was searching for Going Mobile by The Who. Shortly after posting it, however, I realized 2 songs co-written by John Lennon, The Beatles' Drive My Car and David Bowie's Fashion, both included that infamous lyric. Perhaps Beep Beep is more widespread than I thought!

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

Whoops, Fashion's not co-written by Lennon. I was confused the song with Fame. My mistake.

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

#14 is "Wonderwall," by, as an anonymous reader (who may have been jenhowell ;) said, Oasis.

and, just because it takes me back to my youth (all of 10 years ago =), #20 is by the late, great Alvin and the Chipmunks, and the actual name is, I believe, "The Chipmunk Song."

Apart from that, i just wanted to say, great list, pretty tough but very cool :)

Correct both times! Thanks for the compliment; my worst fear was posting a list that was completely solved in a day. I made most of the quotes fairly tough, and seeing how well everyone is doing, I'm very glad I did!

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

I don't suppose #26 is "Last Kiss"? It was covered by Pearl Jam, but I'm not sure of the original artist.

Speaking for Jim, no, it is not Last Kiss, but you are very, very close.

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

37 is definitely radiohead, paranoid android. but 41 is killing me!

37 is Paranoid Android, and I notice you are quickly approaching the lead! 41 is probably not the most popular song, but the artist is quite esteemed, and anybody hearing the song will likely never forget that particular lyric.

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

i got it! Richard Thompson... i believe it's called "I Misunderstood." i knew it was somebody with a deep voice. am i in the lead yet? :)

Wow! I expected that one would take more time. Indeed, it is I Misunderstood!

You are now tied for the lead (I keep a tally in my comments field). I feel a grudge match brewing... ;)

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

Boy is #38 EASY!!!!!
Breathe by Pink Floyd. You should have gone for something more obscure, perhaps something from Obsured by Clouds or Animals, perhaps...

Yeah, I had another, more obscure quote by the band, but I'm trying to balance out some of my tougher quotes with some easier ones, so I went a bit soft on this one. I figured most Floyd fans would know any lyric I posted anyway. Great job!

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

You know, I was going to suggest some Neil Young lyric, as I hadn't recognized one, and I love Neil Young! Not a great singer, mind you, but one heck of a great song writer.
So #45 - Neil Young, "Down by the River."
An exceptional song you picked here, but there are so many by him.

Correct again! I realized yesterday that I had shamefully neglected this great artist, so of course, I had to add one. You're right; he has so many great songs to choose from.

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs (Still shocked nobody has guessed the U2 quote yet...)

#40 is is "Born Slippy," by Underworld. #44 is "Down By The Water," by P.J. Harvey.

Wow! I debated whether to post number 40, as I wasn't sure if anybody here had heard the wonderful song, and yet you guessed it in less than a day! Correct on both accounts.

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

#1 Chagall Chavuerra(I can't spell it off te top of my head, but I believe Steve Taylor wrote the lyrics).

13--Velvet Underground ("Heroine") (jon)

Correct on both accounts, although I'm afraid I need the song title to give you number 1.

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

"I Need Somebody" by Chagall Guevara
(Jon)

Bingo! (Had to check the tape case, eh?)

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

here's one from an artist not on this list (I think!)...pretty popular nonetheless:
"Tell you the truth I perfer the worst of you /
Too bad you had to have a better half..."

i got this one! it's Ani DiFranco's Untouchable Face. what a fabulous song...

Ender22d, can you verify this?

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

sorry, been vacationing...yep, it is Ani's song. Very nice indeed.

The point is Taryn's!

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

dang, here's another: a good canadien band (eh?):
"I went back to bed this morning / and as I'm pulling down the blind / yeah the sky was dull and hypothetical, and fallin' one cloud at a time..."

:) Great entry. No, this artist is not on the list yet, so I'll add it.

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

The Hip: Bobcaygeon. Damn fine track on a damn fine album from a damn fine band.

I really enjoyed this list. I am "into" lyrics. I particularly like the lyrics for the Bette Midler song, "The Rose". There's not a wasted word in the whole song. Anybody know who wrote the lyrics?

Thanks! The Rose was written (music and lyrics) by Amanda McBroom and can be found sung by its composer on either McBroom's Dreaming or Portraits: Best of Amanda McBroom. Since the best of was released in 1999, you'd probably have better luck locating it. The Rose is easily her most famous song.

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

Has this list fizzled out, or is everybody stumped? Let me know if it is time to add clues and / or new entries.

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

Not quite yet. #49 Feel Like I'm Fixing To Die Rag by Country Joe MacDonald and the Fish.

Good job!

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

I have no pride. I'd take some hints.

A few hints:

2. Any reader of my lists knows that this artist is one of my favorites, even if he is not currently in vogue.

10. No one has guessed this yet? Mega-selling 80s and 90s band which is a favorite of many. This is from my favorite album of theirs, although most folks would list this as a second or third favorite.

23. Top ten hit (peaked at number 3, I believe) by an eclectic artist popular in the 80s, back when everybody, even he himself, knew his name.

25. Jim and I have briefly discussed this album.

27. One of the largest bands in history. Scan the list and think of the most famous band not mentioned. That's them, and this is from their best album. The album's lyrics are a bit burried, so one can be easily forgiven for not getting this one.

28. She's royalty in the world of soul, and yes, you have heard of her. This was a single.

29. Notorious cult album and a critic's (myself included) darling.

31. Oddly enough, this band probably wasn't named after the drug. And no, not Morphine. A new song from a band which only recently broke their long silence.

33. If you have heard any punk in your life, you've probably heard this band.

35. Maybe if you heard the guitar parts...

36. From Lester Bangs' favorite album, these lines open the disc.

39. Even though Americans dreamt it was over, this band continued to have quite a rewarding career. This great single was big in England, but nowhere to be heard in America.

42. If you dug rock music in the 50s, this man was no doubt your buddy.

43. Askew and hexed.

50. Despite the lyrics of number 43, he was the king of it.

Oh no, I've said too much. Have I said enough?

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

Bangs, I do believe #43 is "In the Mouth a Desert" by Pavement. This is definitely one tricky list!

Johnny Waco

You got it! Another great quote bites the dust! (Play that sentence backwards and it says, "It's fun to smoke Camels"!)

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

Let's see if I can get lucky with a few more! #10 is "Acrobat" by U2, #27 is "Soul Survivor" by the Rolling Stones, #28 is "The House That Jack Built" by the one and only Aretha, and #50 is "His Latest Flame" by Elvis. I'll make a disclaimer about my divining skills on these: if it weren't for your clues Lester, I doubt I would have gotten any of these (or it least would have taken a lot longer).

Johnny Waco

Wow! Correct around the board!

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

Quick question: Is there enough interest for me to start a new lyric challenge? I'm contemplating creating an entirely new board and am wondering if anybody is up to the challenge.

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

I would love to see a new list; I'm afraid that in a surprisingly short amount of time a list like this gets too long to read properly. I'll cook up some new quotes if the new list is go!

"I'm so alone tonight, my bed feels larger than when I was small, lost in memories, lost in all the sheets and old pillows, so alone tonight, miss you more than I will yet you know, miss the outline of your back, miss you breathing down my neck..."

"Don't you go, it makes no sense, and all these talkin' supermen just take away the time, just to get it away, ah, ain't it just like the rain..."

The Ghost in You - Counting Crows (off the Clueless soundtrack, mind you). I was just listening to this song this morning...

correct

"You'll see it's all a show, keep 'em laughin' as you go, just remember that the last laugh is on you..."

Always Look on the Bright Side of Life, sung both by Monty Python in Life of Brian and Bruce Cockburn on his Live album.

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

correct; always good to play on the way to work early in the morning...

"I have tried so not to give in, I have said to myself this affair never gonna go so well, but why should I try to resist when baby I know so well..."

"I took a moment from my day and wrapped it up in things you'd say, and mailed it off to your address, you'll get it pretty soon I guess...you won't find moments in a box and someone else will set your clocks...."

A new list sounds good to me! Also, I thought you might be interested in an alternative layout for this list and the new one: you could put in a dividing line, and put all the unidentified items above the line. Here's what you'd type to achieve this effect (needed HTML in bold):

First unidentified line

Bunch of other unidentified lines

Last unidentified line<BR><HR SIZE="2" NOSHADE>

First identified line

Remaining identified lines

You can see this effect in action on this list.

Put in a country song for me. Nothing to old!!

thanks,

Tate

"I learned my passion in the good-old fashioned, school of lover boys"
This is one of my favorite lyrics from any song

i'm up for a new list! (although i'm already doing poorly since i don't recognize any of ender22d's suggestions...)

hey, don't feel bad! These quotes I picked off my mp3 (legal, of course...hehehe) list last evening. All good songs, of course, but they may be only that way in MY opinion. I'll come up with some more weird ones here shortly...

#33 is from "Holidays in the Sun," by the Sex Pistols, which just might be the greatest Sex Pistols song of all

Excellent, Reader!

And yes, I will be creating a new lyric challenge VERY soon...

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

Totally cool lyric choices from some of my favorite albums and artists. Let's see if I can fill in some of the blanks.

#2 is Lipstick Vogue by Elvis Costello from This Year's Model.

#5 is Jerusalem by Dan Bern. (Kudos to a curious coworker for knowing this one).

#23 is Sign O' The Times by Prince from Sign O' The Times.

#25 is Higher Than the Sun by Primal Scream from Screamadelica.

#31 is I'd Like That by XTC from Apple Venus (v1).

#34 is John the Baptist by the Afghan Whigs from 1965.

#35 is Burning of the Midnight Lamp by Hendrix from Electric Ladyland.

#36 is Astral Weeks by Van Morrison from Astral Weeks.

#39 is Weather With You by Crowded House from Woodface.

#42 is I'm Gonna Set My Foot Down by Buddy Holly. Not a clue what album it's from. (God bless my annoying college roommate for quoting this line all of the time).

#47 is Fool's Gold by The Stone Roses from Turns into Stone. (Brain bleeding after remembering this one).

That is all. I need to rest for the next week to recover.

I do not say this very often, but I am about as impressed as I ever get right now. Correct on all, and a personal congratulations on a sterling job!

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

Thanks!

I'm clueless on the rest of these, though.

#48 sounds familiar, but I can't place it.

I'm new to this. What do the (G:) and (S:) designators stand for when LBangs notates the answers?

MarkW

(G:) is the person who correctly guessed the quote, and (S:) is the person who submitted the quote. When no (S:) appears (as is usual), I came up with the quote.

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

Nothin' but olives. Mountain of olives. It was a good ten days--I like olives. [!] I love it!

29. is Captain Beefheart Blimp. I only know this because you mentioned them on my ABC's list and I put on Trout Mask Replica album to hear these wackos again.

Now I'm impressed. Correct!

So, do you like the wackos?

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

In small doses, I love them.

I can certainly understand and respect that. Thanks!

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

#48 is "Over You" by T-Bone Burnett. and it nearly drove me insane trying to connect the dots on that one...

#26 is "Where Did You Sleep Last Night" by Leadbelly. It was covered by Nirvana on their "Unplugged" album. Before performing this song he said, "This is by my favorite performer."

Two points!

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

Great job (and song)!

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

#52 is Bobcaygeon by the Tragically Hip

Somebody quoted a Tragically Hip song in a lyric game and I missed the chance to answer!? Damn these eyes!

Correct; nice going!

I believe only one quote remains now...

Shalom, y'all!
