Lyrics Quiz

Facebookers, I want you guessing too.

Taken from lootsfoz

Step 1: Put your MP3 player or whatever on random.
Step 2: Post the first line of lyrics for the first 20 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song.
Step 3: Post and let everyone you know guess what song and artist the lines come from.
Step 4: Strike out the songs when someone guesses correctly.

1. “I once held her in my arms, she said she would always stay”

2. “You got crazy legs, you got amazing head.”

3. “At first flash of Eden, we race down to the sea.”

4. “If your memory serves you well, we were going to meet again and wait.”

5. “Dead as dead can be, my Doctor tells me, but I just can’t believe him.”
ANSWERED by c15page: “Passive” by A Perfect Circle.

6. “Well I woke up Sunday morning with no way to hold my head that didn’t hurt.”
ANSWERED BY bpdermody: “Sunday Morning Coming Down” by Kris Kristofferson (as he noted, most famously covered by Johnny Cash)

7. “Once there was a man who had a little too much time on his hands, he never stopped to think that he was getting older.”

8. “Listen up babe, you’re no fool, I wish I walked you home from school.”

9. “I am an American aquarium drinker, I assassin down the avenue.”
ANSWERED by rainydaygirl: “I Am Trying to Break Your Heart” by Wilco

10. “I don’t have to speak and you know what I’m thinking.”
ANSWERED by thesecretchord: “We’re the Same” by Matthew Sweet

11. “When you’ve gone about things all wrong, bury them here with a lifetime you would never regret.”

12. “It was a cold night and the snow lay low, I pulled my coat tight against the falling down.”

13. “I have seen the morning burning golden on the mountain in the sky.”

14. “If I had to lose a mile, if I had to touch feelings, I would lose my soul the way I do.”

15. “One morning as I rambled down by the seashore, the wind it did whistle and the waters did roar.”

16. “It’s what you all been waitin’ for, ain’t it? What people pay paper for, damnit.”

17. “I wanted to be with you alone and talk about the weather.”
ANSWERED BY bpdermody: “Head Over Heels” by Tears for Fears

18. “All last Summer in case you don’t recall, I was yours and you were mine forget it all.”
ANSWERED BY bpdermody: “Found Out About You” by Gin Blossoms

19. “All the elevator buttons so incredibly high.”

20. “I wrote you a letter, Momma, put it in your front yard.”

This one’s going to be tricky. To be honest, there were three I skipped because the title of the song was in the very first line (in one case the very first words) of the song.

Good luck and Godspeed.
