The TtU Lyrics Quiz!!!!


As Miz UV has amply demonstrated, you all like these lyrics quizzes! Hers are always very popular, but for me, frustrating. This is not only because I never see them until they're mostly answered, but also because she and I have different tastes in music, and all my encyclopedic knowledge does me not one damn bit of good. So for this one, it doesn't matter what music you normally listen to, because for all of these questions, I've already given you the answers.

You see, all of these lyrics came from songs I've posted on Trolling the Underground. All of you can access those (I did not use any songs posted on the Wordpress blog, although I think there was just one. All of these songs came from here or my main blog.) And no matter your tastes, I'm sure you've been downloading them all and giving them a close listen.

Right?

Here they are:

1 - They bend the facts to fit with their new stories of why we have to send our men to war.

2-
"Send back my dream test baby, she's my main feature."

3- Baby, let me check your valves, fix your overdrive. (Trampled Underfoot, Led Zeppelin, Fez)

4- Distant bells, new mown grass smells so sweet. (Fat Old Sun, Pink Floyd, Jodie K.)

5-
We asked you what you'd seen. You said you didn't care.

6-
She always liked to sing along. She's always handy with a song. (Dixie Chicken, Little Feat, Annie)

7- I'm one of nature's children. (....., Beatles, Fez)

8- When the fish scent fill the air, there'll be snuff juice everywhere. (Wang Dang Doodle, I posted the Ratdog version, Annie)

9- I will now receive my comfort, conjured by the magic power of wine.

10- And if Warhol's a genius, what am I? A speck of lint on the penis of an alien.

11-
You're trippin' on a shoe lace - racin' to each new place...

12-
But they've turned the nature that I worshiped in from a temple to a robbers den.

13-Give me your lips for just a moment and my imagination will make that moment live. ( A Kiss to Build a Dream On, my post was Louis Armstrong, Jodie K)

14- I talk on the telephone for hours with a pound and a half of cream upon my face! (I Enjoy Being a Girl, Tiny Tim, Miz UV)

15- If silence was golden, you couldn't raise a dime.

16- Eyes are moving but there's no life showing.

17- We don't let our hair grow long and shaggy like the hippies out in San Francisco do. (Okie from Muskogee, I posted a Grateful Dead/Beach Boys version, Annie)

18 - They put a jug beside him and a barrel for his stone.

19-
There lies a land I once lived in and she's waiting there for me. (Question, Moody Blues, Miz UV)

20-
The secretaries pout and preen like cheap tarts in a red light street. (Synchronicity II, The Police, Fez)

Go!

You're as bad as Looney! Thursday is for THIRTEENS. Okay then.

14. I Enjoy Being A Girl by Tiny Tim (originally by someone else for some Broadway Show like maybe the Flower Drum Song, I don't know).

19. (The) Question by the Moody Blues. One of my fave songs of ALL TIME.

I think I should know #5, but it's not coming to me. And #8 sounds like Frank Zappa. Interesting lyrics, all of 'em.

Goodness! Almost forgot to come on over here this morning (was busy listening to some Led Zep…you’re right ;)

I suck a little here, BUT did not research (thus far). Had more fun going off the top of me head…

3 - Baby, let me check your valves, fix your overdrive. – “Trampled Underfoot” (thank you, baby)

4 - Distant bells, new mown grass smells so sweet. – “Fat Old Sun”, Pink Floyd

13 - Give me your lips for just a moment and my imagination will make that moment live. - "A Kiss To Build A Dream On", hmmm, see some romance songs are nice ;)…I know Rod “The Mod” covered it, and that’s sort of lame.

14 - I talk on the telephone for hours with a pound and a half of cream upon my face! – “I Enjoy Being a Girl”, don’t know the artist but love you a little more for this one, Trolly.

19 - There lies a land I once lived in and she's waiting there for me. – Moody Blues…don’t know the title.

20 - The secretaries pout and preen like cheap tarts in a red light street. – “Synchronicity 2”, a fave from my celebrity hubby Stewie Copeland and The Police

I wasn't sure anyone would get the Oink Floyd one! Way to do, Jodie, that's one of my favorite tunes. Have you ever heard a live version? It's greatly expanded over the studio version. I'm not sure you were around here yet when I posted it.

I think you should have to hum the song to go along with these.

Joe the Troll said...

Liz - I did!

elizabeth said...

Number 10 is awful, LOL. I'm pretty sure if I had heard that - I would remember it....

Joe the Troll said...
