Lyric quiz I

Postby rockinjockscot » Sun 23 Sep 2007 12:12 GMT

Famous first lines - easy level. Artist & title please. Answers when I feel like it!

1) Baby, here I am, I’m the man on the scene
I can give you what you want, but you got to come home with me

2) I once had a girl
Or should I say
She once had me

3) The indians send signals from the rocks above the pass,
The cowboys take position in the bushes and the grass

4) Monday morning feels so bad
Everybody seems to nag me

5) I, I love the colourful clothes she wears
And the way the sunlight plays upon her hair

6) Over bridge of sighs
To rest my eyes in shades of green

7) There she is again stepping out of her limousine
Looking like the cover of a $20 magazine

8) You get a shiver in the dark,
It’s raining in the park,
But meantime

9) She would never say
Where she came from
Yesterday don’t matter
If it’s gone

10) Make me a deal and make it straight,
All signed and sealed, I’ll take it

11) Walking round the room singing “Stormy Weather”
At 57 Mount Pleasant Street

12) My make-up is dry and it cracks on my chin,
I’m drowning my sorrows in whisky and gin

13) Know it sounds funny but I just can’t stand the pain,
Well I’m leavin’ you tomorrow

14) Oh, life is bigger,
It’s bigger than you,
And you are not me

15) Your everlasting summer
You can see it fading fast
So you grab a piece of something,
That you think is gonna last

NO bl**dy cheating!

Mike, you don't qualify for PMs yet. However, because we know you we've made an exception - I've tweaked your user profile to enable you to receive PMs so that people don't have to give the answers away by posting them here. :D

BTW - Ta

BTW2 - Are you and Kay going to have a go at the quiz?

On it at the moment, Mike! No.10 is really bugging me, though - it's just "round the corner of my mind" as Sir James Savile might have said. :x

(Look forward to seeing you when you get here. Possibly not straight away as we're off on a jaunt in the next few days, and in any case you'll be wanting to get your feet on terra firma first, I imagine - but we can sort out a session as and when. :wink: )

Great quiz, Mike. Music just ain't my subject so I got Dave to go through it with me. He checked the answers after he'd sent his PM to you - he didn't cheat. Even with a bit of prompting and help from Dave, I managed to get two right, and maybe a half point for getting the group right on another question. I'm not a contender for winning this one. :D

Thanks for doing this. We've always enjoyed whatever quizzes we've had on BE.

Looking forward to seeing you again although, as Dave says, we won't be around until a few days after you get here. 8) Are you still wanting revenge against me for beating you at pool? :lol: I'll play you again for a pint of :drink:

Dave managed 9/15.

The pool game is still very much on (just don't look at the thread "Down girl!" in HOF).

See you when you get back to Pattaya!

Cheers
