Lyrics Quiz

Have got my headphones in today (as I try to write a digestible synopsis of the Financial Plan).

This is some of what I’ve been listening to.

Song title and artist please. No cheating, it’s no fun!

  1. Just for this lifetime, you can be my past-time
  2. I’m ready to bet it all, unless you don’t care at all
  3. If it wasn’t for chip fat they’d be frozen
  4. Just give me something, I’ll take nothing
  5. What drives you on can drive you mad, a million lies to sell yourself is all you ever had
  6. I don’t know no love songs, and I can’t sing the blues anymore
  7. I had a mission, I could turn you right, a stupid mission, an illegal fight
  8. You know I’m going to lose, and gambling’s for fools, but that’s the way I like it baby, I don’t want to live forever
  9. I took this man’s love and put it on a shelf, and like a fool I thought I had it all to myself
  10. If I seem edgy I want you to know, that I never meant to take it out on you
  11. He’s laughing with another girl and playing with another heart
  12. Why pamper life’s complexity when the leather runs smooth on the passenger seat?
  13. It’s chewing at my bones and my brains, it’s working through the flesh that remains
  14. Get out of my life with your fuss and fight, I don’t want it
  15. I’m no King Kong, I may be hairy, but don’t get me wrong
  16. I love you like a fat kid love cake
  17. I haven’t been the same since my teenage lobotomy
  18. Tumble out of bed and stumble to the kitchen, pour myself a cup of ambition
  19. I’ve got the cultivating music that be captivating me
  20. Always moving and going nowhere

Bonus Question:

  • You have a temper like my jealousy, too hot, too greedy

    1. Spiller ft Sophie Ellis Bextor – Groovejet.
    7. Cardigans – My Favourite Game (I think).
    16. 50 Cent – Erm… can’t recall the title, is it something like ‘Seven Questions’?
    17. Ash – Kung Fu.

    I think I know 4, 8 and 12 bu my brain has stopped working…

  2. Helen Ryan says:

    5. Garbage – Stupid Girl ?
    8. Motorhead – Ace of spades

  3. Helen Ryan says:

    Bonus question : Kate Bush – Wuthering Heights

  4. Casey Leaver says:

    Quick off the mark girlies – and most of them are right. You’re going to kick yourself over some of the others though.

    Keep going!

  5. Lia Buddle says:

    4. Badly Drawn Boy – Pissing in the wind

    the only other ones I knew have already been guessed! Great lyrics though…

  6. Casey Leaver says:

    Right, I’m going to start editing the ones that you’ve guessed correctly so it’s easier to see what’s left.

  7. Chelsea Reay says:

    2- Pharrell- Frontin’ (altho i actually knew it from the Jamie Cullum version)
    20- Jimmy Ruffin- What Becomes of the Broken Hearted

    14 is driving me crazy, i’m sure i know it!!

  8. Casey Leaver says:

    Yep, mine was the Jamie Cullum version too. Well done on # 20

  9. Tom Abbott says:

    12. The Smiths, This Charming Man

  10. Casey Leaver says:

    I knew you’d get that one!

  11. Tom Abbott says:

    But I told you – I am so ovah messers Morrisey and Marr…

  12. Chelsea Reay says:

    aha i’ve got another one! 3- Kaiser Chiefs- I predict a riot.

    Thankyou for keeping me occupied on an otherwise very boring afternoon at work!

  13. Casey Leaver says:

    Well done! Keep ‘em coming.

  14. 16 is Fiddy Cent’s 21 Questions.

  15. Casey Leaver says:

    Well done Dan – apologies for pedantry Holly.

    By the way Holly, I think your dancing performance on Friday deserves an alcoholic beverage of choice.

  16. Holly Cruise says:

    Hahaha, no worries, I would probably be quite ashamed of myself if I knew the actual answer to the 50 Cent question. I’m no hip-hop hater but that mumbling eejit just ain’t worth the hype (‘In Da Club’ apart).


  17. 10 is from Kill Bill… Santa Esmerelda? Or something.

  18. Casey Leaver says:

    A version of the song is on the Kill Bill soundtrack….. but it’s not the one that I was listening to.

  19. Max Hammond says:

    5 : Garbage – Stupid Girl.
    One of the first MP3s I downloaded from Napster, when such things weren’t frowned upon 😉

  20. Helen Ryan says:

    I believe I’ve already said this Max, and it has been unacknowledged even though it checks out 😦

  21. Simon Brent says:

    5. Garbage – Stupid Girl

  22. Simon Brent says:

    humm, on reading the comments, maybe not.. :-s

  23. 10 is the Animals’ (at least that’s the version I’m thinking of) Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood. Wouldn’t’ve got it without Mat’s help though. Ta.

  24. Casey Leaver says:

    Sorry Helen, yes #5 is Stupid Girl. Forgot to cross it out.

    ..and yes Dan, it is Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood, although my version was Nina Simone.
