Tell me if you've heard this before.

Okay my fellow blog stalkers, today we are going to stretch our brains a little. It's been awhile since the last trivia session. Some of you may not have too hard a time with this, while others may scream in agony. What are you talking about Blog Stalker? Well let me tell you what I have planned for today;
  • I am going to list the line from a popular (at some moment in time) song.

  • You have to come up with the name of the song

  • And you have to come up with the artist
  • and if you can come up with the theme you win the bonus!
Sounds easy, right? Trust me though, there might be a few gimmes in the mix, but hopefully these will make you think. And really, If you can just get the title OR artist I will be impressed.

So without further delay, here are the lines:

  • 1. 'Cause you shine on me wherever you are I just think of you and I start to glow And I need your light And baby you know
  • 2. I'm working hard, your working too....we do it every day....for every minute I have to work, I need a minute to play......day in, day out All we know...........
  • 3. Boy -Now in the streets there is violence an-na-na lots of work to be done.No place to hang all our washing and then I can't blame it all on the sun.
  • 4. Drivin' home this evening I coulda sworn we had it all worked out You had this boy believin' Way beyond the shadow of a doubt Then I heard it on the street I heard you mighta found somebody new Well who is he baby - who is he And tell me what he means to you
  • 5. Once upon a midnight dearie I woke with something in my head I couldn't escape the memory Of a phone call and of what you said, Like a game show contestant with a parting gift I could not believe my eyes
  • 6. And, I wear it for the thousands who have died,Believen' that the Lord was on their side,I wear it for another hundred thousand who have died,Believen' that we all were on their side.
  • 7. On the street where you live girls talk about their social lives They're made of lipstick, plastic and paint, a touch of sable in their eyes All your life all you've asked when's your Daddy gonna talk to you You were living in another world tryin' to get a message through.
  • 8. All I ask for when I pray, steady rollin' woman gonna come my way. Need a woman gonna hold my hand, won't tell me no lies, make me a happy man.
  • 9. We are young heartache to heartache we stand No promises no demands
  • 10. And when your fears subside And shadows still remainI know that you can love meWhen there's no one left to blame So never mind the darkness We still can find a way'Cause nothin' lasts forever , not even cold..........
  • 11. I saw him dancing there by the record machineI knew he must have been about seventeen The beat was going strong, playing my favorite songAnd I could tell it wouldn't be longtill he was with me, yeah, me
  • 12. Oh the things that you say Is it life or Just a play my worries away You're all the things I've got to remember You're shying away I'll be coming for you anyway
  • 13. Children behave that's what they say when we're together And watch how you play they don't understand.And so we're running iust as fast as we can Holding on to one another's hand.Trying to get away into the night
  • 14. You Know I'm A Dreamer But My Heart's Of Gold I Had To Run Away High So I Wouldn't Come Home Low Just When Things Went Right It Doesn't Mean They Were Always Wrong Just Take This Song And You'll Never Feel Left All Alone
  • 15. Big wheels keep on turning Carry me home to see my kin Singing songs about the south-land I miss 'ole' 'bamy once again And I think it's a sin Well I heard Mister Young sing about her Well I heard ole Neil put her down Well, I hope Neil Young will remember A southern man don't need him around anyhow
  • 16. Broken hearts lie all around me And I don't see an easy way to get out of this Her diary it sits on the bedside table The curtains are closed, the cats in the cradle Who would've thought that a boy like me could come to this
  • 17. If you should go skating On the thin ice of modern life Dragging behind you the silent reproach Of a million tear stained eyes Don't be surprised, when a crack in the ice Appears under your feet You slip out of your depth and out of your mind With your fear flowing out behind you
  • 18. Heard it from a friend who Heard it from a friend who Heard it from another you've been messin' around They say you've got a boyfriend You're out late every weekend They're talkin' about you and it's bringing me down
  • 19. I get up, and nothing gets me down.You got it tough. I've seen the toughest around. And I know, baby, just how you feel. You've got to roll with the punches to get to what's real
  • 20. (this IS my favorite song of all time! Oops, is that revealing? nah!)
  • Life it seems, will fade away, Drifting further every day, Getting lost within myself, Nothing matters no one else, I have lost the will to live, Simply nothing more to give. There is nothing more for me, Need the end to set me free. Things not what they used to be,Missing one inside of me. Deathly lost, this Can t be real, Cannot stand this hell I feel. Emptiness is filling me, To the point of agony. Growing darkness taking dawn, I was me, but now he 's gone. No one but me can save myself, but it's too late. Now, I can't think, think why I should even try. Yesterday seems as though it never existed. Death Greets me warm, now I will just say goodbye
  • If you get that last one, it counts as 20 points and you win automatically.

  • Good luck blog stalkers.....Are you even brave enough to try?

#5. Blues Traveler RUN AROUND

#9 I know it but can't think of the title. If only you could hear me singing the tune in my head you'd believe me.

#13 I think we're alone now...Debbie Gibson or Tiffany (they're the same person in my head)

#20--NO IDEA! Off to check my answers.

RhondaLue said...

That's strange. I know all but 5 of those songs. I'm no good at trivia. Play a few notes or bars of the song though and I bet I'd do good

Ok your fav song of all time is a metallica one? Yup. You're for sure a dude. Good post dude.

Breanne said...

OK...this is really hard.

Tulsi said...

I only knew Bryan Adams and Bon Jovi. I thought of naming Mikele Bryan Adam if she was a boy at one point but was over my fixation on him by then. Where was the "swoon" Rick Springfield ?- Still working on that fixation. Yea, Rick was considered for Kass once, too.

Mother Goose said...

I just tagged you with a picture tag because I am very curious what lies in your picture folders!

NeverADullMoment said...

My brain is too busy to slow down and think right now. But I wanted to say good morning and let you know that I am a fellow 80's girl too!

Confessions of A Mississippi Mom said...

80's rocks and number 1 is that favo girl Madonna ok number 8 is black dog Led Zeplin, I am stumped on the others... but hey two is good RIGHT?

Jed said...

You have got to be someone who was raised in the eighties! I love the songs but had a tough time naming them.

Of course the Bon Jovi, Van Halen and Metallica ones were easy!

ROck on!
