High in the Mid 40s With a Moderate Chance of Afternoon Quizing

I'm so happy that you guys got Same Auld Lang Syne. That and Chapin's Taxi are two of a kind (the good kind). I'm a little frightened that almost everyone got Elvira, even if the artist wasn't clear. Although 'artist' may be a bit generous for that song :) (It was the Oak Ridge Boys, if anyone had a side bet going)

So mainly 13, 14 and th artist of 15 gave a bit of trouble. So here we go:
#13 was The Boy From New York City - Manhattan Transfer
#14 was Stroke - Billy Squier
#15 was Winning, which New Kid knew, by Santana, which New Kid didn't know :)

Alrightly, It's getting harder to gather goo songs, so I've hoarded for a couple of days with this as my loot (making offering to the HTML spirits):

#1 -
And she's watching him with those eyes
And she's lovin' him with that body,
I just know it

#2 -
How can you have any pudding if you don't eat your meat?

#3 -
Make the magic last for more than just one night
If we could just get to it
I know we could break through it

#4 -
Lay down your money and you play your part

#5 -
I was born to love her, and I'll never be free
You'll always be a part of me.

#6 -
Voices from nowhere
And voices from the larger towns
Filled our head full of dreams
Turned the world upside down

#7 -
I hear you’re lonely - don’t monkey with my business
You pay the profits to justify the reasons
I heard your promise but I don’t believe it -
That’s why I’ll do it again

What you gonna do when things go wrong?
What you gonna do when it all cracks up?
What you gonna do when the love burns down?
What you gonna do when the flames go up?

Writing frightening verse
To a buck-toothed girl in Luxembourg

I tell myself
Hey only fools rush in and only time will tell
If we stand the test of time

You've got the biggest heart
Sometimes I think you're just too good for me
Every day is christmas, and every night is new year's Eve

Now the promoter don’t mind
And the union don’t mind
If we take a little time

And I've been wondering, where it is you're hiding.
I've had my ears to the ground, to the ground.
I'm just trying to find out what you're hiding.
What is the mystery?

I won't believe in heaven and hell.
No saints, no sinners, no devil as well.
No pearly gates, no thorny crown.

Gonna use my arms, gonna use my legs
Gonna use my style, gonna use my sidestep
Gonna use my fingers, gonna use my my my imagination

#1 - Jesse's Girl, Rick Springfield
#4 - (Everybody's Got a) Hungry Heart, Bruce Springsteen
#12 - Stay, James Taylor
#14 - Dear God, XTC

Holy cow, there's a lot on here that I know and can't place. And I have to say that I never knew the word "sidestep" was in #15 -- I always thought it was "senses"...

To be honest, I thought it was 'senses' too, but I'm going by one of the lyrics websites. It's quite possibly wrong... I might have to cue up the tune again :)

#3 is Just Once by ?
#10 is a song by Van Halen but I can't remember the title.
#12 is Stay, but it's Jackson Browne not James Taylor.

And I knew numbers 1, 2, 5, 14 & 15.

#6 R.O.C.K. in the U.S.A. John Mellencamp

#8 Alive and Kicking, Simply Red

#11 the words ring a bell, but I'm getting no tune so I'm lost. I'm not even recognizing the words on #13, which fersure means I'll know it when I google it.

Sorry, I'm not doing much good batting clean-up today.

Phantom Scribbler said...

#8 is Simple Minds, not Simply Red. Sorry, Camera Obscura!

Camera Obscura said...

Well hell, Phantom, at least I got the Simple part!

Hope you get more sleep than you have been lately.

Aagh, can't believe I mixed up JT and JB! My hippie parents would be appalled.
