I like musical trivia. I thought it might be fun to post a snippet of a lyric to a famous song, then see if anyone can tell which song it is.

Rules:

1. Give the genre and general time frame
2. NO using Google or similar search engine. You either know it or you don't.


Early 70's rock classic:

We all came out to Montreux, on the Lake Geneva shoreline

'oh to be torn twixt love & duty,
supposing i lose my fair haired beauty,
Look at that big hand move along,
nearing high noon.

Early 70's rock classic:

We all came out to Montreux, on the Lake Geneva shoreline

To make records in a mobile...we didn't have much time.

Frank Zappa and the Mothers were at the best place around;


but some stupid with a flare gun, burned the place to the ground...

[the above was supplied completely from memory and immediately...one of my all-time favourite bands, and one of the best EVER. I bought 'Machine Head' when I was 15 and never looked back...]

Genre: 'Roots Rock', 70s:


The screen door slams, Mary's dress waves;
Like a vision she dances across the porch as the radio plays
Roy Orbison singing for the lonely,
Hey that's me and I want you only,
Don't turn me home again I just can't face myself alone again....

Ghost of Lunchboxxy
12-20-2013, 10:20 AM
Genre: Proto-punk, early 70s:

I'm a street-walking cheetah with a heart full of napalm;
I'm a runaway son of the nuclear A-Bomb;
I am a world's forgotten boy,
The one who searches and destroys...
Honey gotta help me please
Somebody's gotta save my soul,
Baby detonate for me!

Ghost of Lunchboxxy

Genre: Glam Rock, early '70s:

Please clean your plate, dear, The lord above can see ya
Don't you know people are starving in Korea?
Alcohol and razorblades and poison and needles
Kindergarten people, they used 'em they need 'em

Aw, come on, Ghost; some of the lyrics you posted are for really obscure songs!

Here are some 60s rock classics (I am definitely a 60s kinda girl....):

1. To divide the cockeyed world in two.
Throw your pride to one side, it's the least you can do.
Beatniks and politics, nothing is new,
A yardstick for lunatics, one point of view.
Who cares what games we choose?
Little to win, but nothing to lose.

2. The sound of your footsteps,
Tellin' me that you're near,
Your soft gentle motion babe,
Brings out a need in me that no one can hear.

3. They say that all good things must end some day,
Autumn leaves must fall.
But don't you know that it hurts me so,
To say goodbye to you.
Wish you didn't have to go,
No, no, no, no.

4. There is always someone, for each of us they say
And you'll be my someone, forever and a day
I would search the whole world over, until my life is through

5. Baby, baby I'm aware of where you go,
Each time you leave my door.
I watch you walk down the street,
Knowing your other love you'll meet.
But this time before you run to her,
Leaving me alone and hurt,
Think it over.
Think it over.

6. At first, I thought it was infatuation,
But oooo, it's lasted so long.
Now I find myself wanting
To marry you and take you home.

And just for the heck of it, a rock classic from the 80s:

7. Just a small-town girl,
Livin' in a lonely world,
She took the midnight train goin' anywhere.
Just a city boy,
Born and raised in south Detroit,
He took the midnight train goin' anywhere.

OK, then, here's an easy one:

Genre: Early Metal; Early 70s

Finished with my woman 'cause she couldn't help me with my mind
People think I'm insane because I am frowning all the time
All day long I think of things but nothing seems to satisfy
Think I'll lose my mind if I don't find something to pacify
Can you help me occupy my brain?

Yeah, I didn't think about that when I started the thread. Ghost, for example... what is popular in his world is very different from mine. And even the ones you posted, I know the songs but would have never remembered the lyrics.

Maybe if you can't recognize the song from just one line or two, it is too individualized? And maybe it has to be top ten? Try this one from what I consider the greatest song of the 90's pop scene:

I've been a bad, bad girl

I don't either, lol. Music sucks today.

See, I would disagree there...

Sure, the stuff on endless rotation on the radio stations--Lady GaGa, Rihanna, Jay-z, Kanye West, etc etc etc--is all crap, but for the most part it always has been, so that's nothing new ['Muscrat Love' anyone?!].

Start digging deeper, as I tend to do, probe the obscurer, more underground places, and there's some amazing music being made, as much as there ever has been.

I still think the '90s marked the high-water mark of rock and roll, but the opening years of the 21st century ain't half bad at ALL.

High Noon, Frankie Laine

bingo! That was pretty obscure, i must admit, though i put the title in the lyrics! :)

Now one of the earlier listings was 'incense & peppermint'..

Here's another one that's good for a political forum:

"I'll get all my papers and smile at the sky. For I know that the hypnotized never lie."

Yeah, but who else knew High Noon was recorded by Frankie Laine???? LOLOLOLOL. Very good on "Incense and Peppermints". Bonus points if you can come up with the name of the band without looking it up..........

No bonus for me.. it was on the tip of my tongue, but then vanished.. i'll remember in the middle of the night.. ;)


The earlier hint was for a 'The Who' song.. too good lyrics to let them sit unnoticed..

We'll be fighting in the streets
With our children at our feet
And the morals that they worship will be gone
And the men who spurred us on
Sit in judgement of all wrong
They decide and the shotgun sings the song

I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get fooled again

The change, it had to come
We knew it all along
We were liberated from the fold, that's all
And the world looks just the same
And history ain't changed
'Cause the banners, they are flown in the next war

I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get fooled again
No, no!

I'll move myself and my family aside
If we happen to be left half alive
I'll get all my papers and smile at the sky
Though I know that the hypnotized never lie
Do ya?

There's nothing in the streets
Looks any different to me
And the slogans are replaced, by-the-bye
And the parting on the left
Are now parting on the right
And the beards have all grown longer overnight

I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get fooled again
Don't get fooled again
No, no!

Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!

Meet the new boss
Same as the old boss


Now i did look those lyrics up.. but i'm trying to keep the spirit of the OP, & do the rest from memory, even my lyric snippets. OL gets the most for getting the artist for high noon.. i didn't know that one from memory.

I haven't been keeping up with this thread,
then read it BACKWARDS, to find your post,
and saw some of the answers,

but YES, I did recognize most of them!

THIS :

Well no one told me about her,
what could I do
Well no one told me about her,
though they all knew
But it's too late to say you're sorry
How would I know,
why should I care

Here's a couple:

Stopped in to a church
I passed along the way.
Well, I got down on my knees
And I pretend to pray.
You know the preacher likes the cold.
He knows I'm gonna stay.

Hello, darkness, my old friend
I've come to talk with you again.
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping.
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains.

Oh . . . mmm

Lyin' to the races
Help me, come on, come on
Somebody, help me now

1. If you see me comin' better step aside,
a lotta men didn't & a lotta men died..
one fist of iron, the other of steel,
if the right one don't getcha then the left one will.


2. what's your name?
who's your daddy?
is he rich like me?

This is a tough game, if you have to remember the lyrics before posting them, which is only fair.. ok, i'll try a couple more. I had some of the earlier ones, & i got strawberry alarm clock after the hint from OL.


3. i've made up my mind.
I'm tired of wasting all my precious time.
You've got to be all mine.


here's one that might be tough...

4. The brakemen have to tip their hats,
and the railroad bulls are blind.
there's a lake of stew
and a whiskey too,
you can paddle all around it in a big canoe,


5. I can't help about the shape i'm in,
i can't sing, i ain't pretty, & my legs are thin.
But don't ask me what i think of you,
I might not give the answer that you want me to.

Why not share?

Doesn't weigh me down at all.

5 is Oh Well, by peter green, when he was with fleetwood mac.

These are in my repertoire of songs that i play.. i like interesting, obscure music, too. :D

1. The sound of your footsteps,
Tellin' me that you're near,
Your soft gentle motion babe,
Brings out a need in me that no one can hear.

2. They say that all good things must end some day,
Autumn leaves must fall.
But don't you know that it hurts me so,
To say goodbye to you.
Wish you didn't have to go,
No, no, no, no.

3. There is always someone, for each of us they say
And you'll be my someone, forever and a day
I would search the whole world over, until my life is through

4. Baby, baby I'm aware of where you go,
Each time you leave my door.
I watch you walk down the street,
Knowing your other love you'll meet.
But this time before you run to her,
Leaving me alone and hurt,
Think it over.
Think it over.

5. At first, I thought it was infatuation,
But oooo, it's lasted so long.
Now I find myself wanting
To marry you and take you home.

And just for the heck of it, a rock classic from the 80s:

6. Just a small-town girl,

2. I hit him hard right between the eyes,
he went down but to my surprise,
came up with a knife & cut off a piece of my ear.

3. well open up your mind & see like me
open up your plans & damn, you're free,
Look into your heart & you'll find love, love, love.
Listen to the music of the moment maybe sing with me,
A la peaceful melody,

4. well you can tell by the way i use my walk
i'm a woman's man, no time to talk.
music loud & women warm,
I've been kicked around since i was born.

5. Some may come, & some may go..
you will surely pass.
When the One who left us here,
returns for us at last,
We are but a moment's sunlight,
Fading in the grass.


Some of these should be easy, but some might strain some brain cells.. :laughing7:

I posted these earlier, but nobody gave them a guess. Anybody? @fyrenza (http://thepoliticsforums.com/member.php?u=320), come on, girl, wake up....I know you can get at least a couple of them!

1. The sound of your footsteps,
Tellin' me that you're near,
Your soft gentle motion babe,
Brings out a need in me that no one can hear.

2. They say that all good things must end some day,
Autumn leaves must fall.
But don't you know that it hurts me so,
To say goodbye to you.
Wish you didn't have to go,
No, no, no, no.

3. There is always someone, for each of us they say
And you'll be my someone, forever and a day
I would search the whole world over, until my life is through

4. Baby, baby I'm aware of where you go,
Each time you leave my door.
I watch you walk down the street,
Knowing your other love you'll meet.
But this time before you run to her,
Leaving me alone and hurt,
Think it over.
Think it over.

5. At first, I thought it was infatuation,
But oooo, it's lasted so long.
Now I find myself wanting
To marry you and take you home.

And just for the heck of it, a rock classic from the 80s:

6. Just a small-town girl,
Livin' in a lonely world,
She took the midnight train goin' anywhere.
Just a city boy,
Born and raised in south Detroit,
He took the midnight train goin' anywhere.

i think #4 is diana ross, stop in the name of love, & a couple of the others stir some deep recognition, but no mental data to confirm anything. :D


edit: BTW, i'm impressed that no one is cheating! Such honest posters we have here! :headbang:

Maybe if you can't recognize the song from just one line or two, it is too individualized? And maybe it has to be top ten?

This song (60's rock) was never released as a single, yet nearly everyone has heard it and probably will recognize these lyrics:

Rape, murder!

Someone to open each and every door

VERY good, usfan, It Ain't Me Babe was a toughie! It was a huge hit for the Turtles in the 60s, and even a minor hit for Johnny Cash in the 60s.

2. My mother was a tailor,
sewed my new blue jeans,
my father was a gamblin' man,
down in new orleans.

3. out through the back door of rosa's i ran,
out where the horses were tied.
I caught a good one he looked like he could run,
up on his back & away i did ride.

4. Don't turn your back on me baby,
start messing around with your tricks.
Don't turn your back on me baby,
i just might pick up my magic sticks.

5. God damn, well i declare!
Have you seen the like?
Their walls are built of cannon balls,
their motto is 'don't tread on me'.

6. Their faces gaunt, their eyes were blurred, their shirts all soaked with sweat.
They're riding hard to catch that herd, but they ain't caught 'em yet.

Some easy ones, here, & a few tougher ones.. these are still some of my repertoire that i used to play in gigs.. which explains why i can still remember most of the lyrics! :D

Here's a few:

1. The time to hesitate is through
No time to wallow in the mire
Try now we can only lose
And our love become a funeral pyre

2. It's gettin' near dawn,
When lights close their tired eyes.
I'll soon be with you my love,
To give you my dawn surprise.
I'll be with you darling soon,
I'll be with you when the stars start falling.
I've been waiting so long
To be where I'm going

3. If that's the way it must be, ok
I guess I'll go on home, it's late
Therell be tomorrow night
But wait, what do I see?
Is she walking back to me?
Yeah, she's walking back to me

4. And the easiest of all....EVERYBODY gets this one!

Mister city policeman sitting
Pretty little policemen in a row.
See how they fly like Lucy in the Sky, see how they run.
I'm crying, I'm crying.
I'm crying, I'm crying.
Yellow matter custard, dripping from a dead dog's eye.
Crabalocker fishwife, pornographic priestess,
Boy, you been a naughty girl you let your knickers down.
I am the eggman, they are the eggmen.

another tidbit.. that song was written by peter green of the original fleetwood mac, so there is a tie in with 'oh well' listed earlier. He eventually split off from mick fleetwood, & ruined his life in substance abuse. :( But the santana version is better known, & probably a better version. That was the one i did the cover on, anyway. The son played lead very well.. carlos santana style. it was always a crowd favorite.

You aint got no kind of feelin' inside
I got something that'll sho nuff set your stuff on fire
You refuse to put anything before your pride
What I got will knock your pride aside..

I'm glad you're home

If it's a hippie anthem then I should know it....but Stuck-in-the-60s Girl has no clue.

OK, here it is:

OK, since we're doing hippie anthems, here's another one:

We are stardust, we are golden,
We are billion year old carbon,
And we got to get ourselves back to the garden.

1. I'll stand up next to a mountain,
knock it down with the edge of my hand.
Pick up the pieces make me an island,
maybe make me a little sand.

2. i find it very easy to be true,
i find myself alone when each day is true
yes, i'll admit i'm a fool for you,

3. Anytime you want to, you can turn me on to,Anything you you want to, anytime at all.
When I kiss your lips, oo I start to shiver,
Can't control the quivering inside.

4. 3rd boxcar, midnight train,
destination: bangor maine.
old worn out suit & shoes,
i don't pay no union dues..

5. oh, but he watches so sadly,
how can he tell her he loves her?
Yes, he would give his heart gladly,

6. I'm walking down the line,
that divides me somewhere in my mind.
on the borderline of the edge & where i walk alone.


That should be a nice mix of genres.. most are pretty easy, i'm sure. :)

If I never feel you in my arms again,
If I never feel your tender kiss again,
If I never hear I love you now and then,
Will I never make love to you once again.... Toni Braxton, Breath Again

Started out this morning feeling so polite
I always thought a fish could not be caught who wouldn't bite,
But you've got some bait a waitin' and I think I might...Starland Vocals/Afternoon Delight


You aint got no kind of feelin' inside
I got something that'll sho nuff set your stuff on fire
You refuse to put anything before your pride
What I got will knock your pride aside.. Chaka Khan/Tell Me Something Good....way to go Peri

I'm glad you're home
well, did you really miss me
I guess you did by the look in your eye (look in your eye, look in your eye)
Well lay back and relax while I put the dishes away, Anita Ward/Ring My Bell

Friday nite and the strip is hot
Sun's gone down and they're out to trot,

I kinda like the timbre of her voice, and a pretty impressive singer for an archetypical hippie chick, but more importantly, she was the first female entertainment figure that I developed a MASSIVE crush on when I was 12 [to be supplanted the following year by Cher on the Sonny and Cher Show, with her long, brown serpentine midriff]. Cute as a bug, and with the biggest, most expressive eyes I've ever seen.

It is one of those songs you would recognize by those two lines. The first time I heard it I (like millions of others) loved the song. Give it a couple of minutes and I bet you will like it, too. Fan-friggin-tastic song. Superb music for any genre.

#1) I must've dreamed a thousand dreams
Been haunted by a million screams
But I can hear the marching feet
They're moving into the street.

Now did you read the news today
They say the dangers gone away
But I can see the fires still alight
There burning into the night.

#2) But all that's left is a place dark and lonely
A terraced house in a mean street back of town
Becomes a shrine when I think of you only
Just two up two down

#3) Winds may blow over the icy sea
I'll take with me the warmth of thee
(the title of the song as lyrics for this line)
A taste much sweeter than wine

And I did a "theme!"

A psychedelic classic--had to leave out the first two words of the stanza as it's the title:

********** all in my eyes
Don't know if it's day or night
You've got me blowin, blowin my mind
Is it tomorrow or just the end of time?

In my opinion, one of the greatest songs from the 60s, or ever:

Can you picture what will be
So limitless and free
Desperately in need...of some...stranger's hand
In a...desperate land

Lost in a Roman...wilderness of pain
And all the children are insane
All the children are insane
Waiting for the summer rain, yeah

Peter noone was my wife's heart throb as a teeny bopper. We got a chance to see him in concert ~15 yrs ago.. it was pretty funny, with our (preteen) daughter & her friend acting like groupies. But he was very gracious, & signed albums, t-shirts, & photos. It was a small venue, at a casino, & we got to meet him & talk to him after the concert.

To be honest, very rarely do I pay any real attention to the lyrics unless they are clever, witty or very poetic.

A band I love is the Japanese sludge/drone metal trio called 'Boris'. They sing in Japanese. No clue what they're singing about, and don't care. The music kicks MAJOR ass, and they could be singing 'Toyota, Honda, Suzuki, Mitsubishi!', and it wouldn't matter a damn to me.

Same with a lot of Norwegian Black Metal, most of which is in Norwegian, and many of these bands seem to go out of their way to just have their lyrics printed in Norwegian, and in old gothic black letter printing, to dissuade you even more. Don't care. Love the music.
