Lyrics Quiz

People keep putting these things up on LJ. Basically, read the lyrics and if you know them (no cheating with internets!) then tell me what the song is and the artist’s name. If you want to be really flash tell me why I like the song or my association with it!

1. I remember doing nothing on the night Sinatra died
And the night Jeff Buckley died
And the night Kurt Cobain died
And the night John Lennon died
I remember I stayed up to watch the news with everyone

You Were Right – Badly Drawn Boy (guessed by Weasel)

2.She wears an Egyptian ring
That sparkles before she speaks.
She’s a hypnotist collector,
You are a walking antique.

… – Bob Dylan (part-guessed by FoxyJonno)

3. There’s a sacrifice in an empty church
Of sweet li’l baby Rose
And a man in a mask from Mexico
Is peeling off my clothes

4. Look at all you pretty people
Walking past my eyes
The room is getting smaller
There’s a bright light deep inside

White Room – Alisha’s Attic (guessed by Manly Viking)

5. You’re my doll, rock’n’roll, feel the glamour in pink,
kiss me here, touch me there, hanky panky…

Aqua – Barbie Girl (guessed by Mother-In-Law)

6. Acting like lovers
How did we get here?
To this point of living?
I held my breath

You Said Something – PJ Harvey (guessed by FoxyJonno)

7. I know the routine, put another nickel
In the machine
I feel kind of bad, can’t you make the music
Easy and sad

8. You’re the sweet crusader
And you’re on your way
You’re the last great innocent
And that’s why I love you

Mary Jane – Alanis Morisette (guessed by Mother-In-Law)

You’re entitled to your opinion
But it’s really my decision
I can’t turn back I’m on a mission
If you care don’t you dare blur my vision

10. When the glitter fades in morning
Turn away and you will find my empty eyes
Your beauty blinds

Boys On The Radio – Hole (guessed by Manly Viking)

These are really easy! Maybe I’ll do a harder one at some point.

  1. Easy for you, maybe, but as I keep telling you it’s not so easy for the rest of us!

    I may get some others later, but 6 is You Said Something by PJ Harvey.
    I think 2 sounds like Dylan (there must be some in here somewhere), but I can’t place it.
