Mind the Quiz

Hazah to the quizzers! Those noble souls who despite setbacks and earworms and Eddie Murphy videos continue to strive for lyrical success. Truly they are heroes of our time.

I was worried about Zerodoll, but she did come through with #7. Alas, googling is considered poor sportsmanship, but I do highly recommend youtubing the ones that you don't get after you give up. You will be rewarded by much head-slapping and truly horrible videos.

However, there was a bit of a stumble on numbers 8 and 10 last time 'round, which were Warrnt's 'Heaven' and Roxette's 'Dangerous.' To be honest, looking back at #10, I can understand why no one got that one. It's clear when you sing it, but it really isn't clear with just the lyrics.

Alrighty then, Fair warning, the Winamp radio that streams me my tunes has been set on the Classic Rock station, so that's what you'll be getting. Well, mostly. :)

1.
I know its late, I know you're weary
I know your plans don't include me
Still here we are, both of us lonely
Longing for shelter from all that we see

2.
But it was only fantasy.
The wall was too high,
As you can see.
No matter how he tried,
He could not break free.
And the worms ate into his brain.

3.
catch the wind, see us spin,
Sail away, leave today,
Way up high in the sky.
But the wind wont blow,
You really shouldn't go,
It only goes to show
That you will be mine
By taking our time.

4.
So far away from the garden we love
She is what moves in the soul of a dove
Soon I shall see just how black was my night
When were alone in her city of light

5.
They are one person
They are two alone
They are three together
They are for each other

6.
And then your wife seems to think you're part of the furniture
oh, its peculiar, she used to be so nice.

7.
Now you're climbing to the top of the company ladder
Hope it doesn't take too long
Can't you see there'll come a day when it wont matter
Come a day when you'll be gone

8.
She's got loving like quicksand
Only took one touch of her hand
To blow my mind and I'm in so deep
That I cant eat and I can't sleep

9. Careful on the artist for this one :)
When you're down and out
There seems no hope at all
But if you just believe
There's no way we can fall
Well, well, well, well, let us realize
That a change will only come
When we stand together as one

10.
I've been walking in Central Park
Singing after dark
People think I'm crazy
Ive been stumbling on my feet
Shuffling through the street
What's the matter with you boy?
