Let's play Lyrics Guessing Game

Rules: Make a guess before posting a new lyric, give both song title and artist, and try not to use Google until you give people at least a little time to guess.

  1. <B>Queen and David Bowie - Under Pressure</B>, <I>Guessed by Kei</I>
    <I>'Cause love’s such an old fashioned word
    and love dares you to care
    for the people on the edge of the night
    and love dares you to change our way of
    caring about ourselves.</I>

  2. <B>Yamaoka Akira - Letter -from the lost days-</B>, <I>Guessed by Sonoko</I>
    <I>If you forget how to smile
    I have this to tell you,
    remember it once in a while.</I>

  3. <B>They Might Be Giants - Rest Awhile</B>, <I>Guessed by Jenna</I>
    <I>I became friendly with Ruy Lopez
    the author of works on chess.
    Ruy, I said, you’re incorrect
    he cut me off and acted mad.</I>

  4. <B>Talk Talk <I>or</I> No Doubt - It’s My Life</B>, <I>Guessed by Sonoko</I>
    <I>If I could buy my reasoning
    I’d pay to lose
    One half won’t do</I>

  5. <B>The Specials - Little Bitch</B>, <I>Guessed by Jenna</I>
    <I>And your girlfriend
    sweet little seventeen
    she’s got her layered hair
    and her flared jeans.
    You know what that means?
    She’s just a little queen.</I>

  6. <B>They Might Be Giants - Till My Head Falls Off</B>, <I>Guessed by No one</I>
    <I>Hitting every pocket on my shirt pants and overcoat,
    then I’m hitting them again but I don’t know where I put my notes.
    Clearing my throat and gripping the lecturn
    I smile and face my audience
    clearing his throat and smiling his hands on the bathroom sink.</I>

  7. <B>Talking Heads - Wild Wild Life</B>, <I>Guessed by Genericangstyposter</I>
    <I>I wrestle
    with your conscience.
    You wrestle
    with your partner.
    Sittin’ on a
    windowsill
    but he spends his time
    behind closed doors.</I>

  8. <B>Lita Ford - Kiss Me Deadly</B>, <I>Guessed by Steve</I>
    <I>Late for my job and the traffic was bad,
    had to borrow ten bucks from my old man.
    Uh huh.
    It ain’t no big thing.</I>

  9. <B>Simple Minds - Don’t You Forget About Me</B>, <I>Guessed by finalfanatic</I>
    <I>Will you stand above me
    Look my way, never love me
    Rain keeps falling
    Rain keeps falling
    Down, down, down</I>

  10. <B>Squeeze - Tempted (By the Fruit of Another)</B>, <I>Guessed by Sephiroth Katana</I>
    <I>At my bedside empty pocket
    A foot without a sock
    Your body gets much closer
    I fumble for the clock
    Alarmed by the seduction
    I wish that it would stop</I>

  1. Queen and Bowie, Under Pressure.

And there are people that say what they really mean
She said she’d always be there
She said she’d always care
But just when you think that you can
Trust that someone you love
Tell me why, or do you know
How stars can fall from above?

I’m completely clueless. But regardless, I’d like to pitch in a bit.

I’ll never have a chance,
I can’t understand,
I’m a misplaced man…
How could this backward land
Learn to understand my dance?
What it’s like when
Every single smile hurts…

<i>Instrumental</i>

i only knew the first one, but it was already answered, im stumpede on the others, even the ones that GG and kei put. Here, ill put one to. You should get this one easily, even the title.

Mama, just killed a man, put a gun against his head.
Pulled my trigger now he’s dead.
Mama, life had just begun. But now ive gone and thrown it all away.

“Bohemian Rhapsody,” by Queen.

Damn, I want to include my own, but all the ones I can think of off the top of my head are too obvious (title of the song is in the chorus, etc.)

I’ll just strip the title line from this one then.

<i>Bitter words mean little to me
Autumn winds will blow right through me
And someday in the mist of time
When they asked me if i knew you
I’d smile and say you were a friend of mine
And the sadness would be lifted from my eyes…</i>

AHHHHHH!!!I don6 know them, and after you tell me, i will feel really dumb, cuz i might actually know that sone, and good job on finding out my lyric(another spell check), i knew someone would get it, ill get a harder one…lets see…oh ok i got one.

Those who grew up tall and proud.
In the shadow of the mushroom cloud.
Convinced our voices can be heard.
Just want to scream it louder, and louder, and louder.

That one’s Hammer to Fall by Queen. Move away from the Queen stuff now. :smiley:

Kraken’s is “Old and Wise” by the Alan Parsons Project, I do believe. I wont post any more lyrics until someone guesses any more of mine. If you guys are really stumped, I’ll post some more lyrics from those same songs.

The second one of Mr. Saturn’s is Yamaoka Akira - Letter -from the lost days-

The fourth one of Mr. Saturn’s is No Doubt - It’s my life

No clues about the other songs, though if I knew I’d keep them to myself anyway :slight_smile: don’t want to ruin the fun of the other’s.

Anyway here are lyrics to one of my favourite songs:

Only answer was to leave,
and I am still here,
with your memorie~s
dreaming hopelessly holding in my heart,
all the flowers you left.

More lyrics from the same song:

Broken melodies,
no more singing
no more laughing
in the sun~
river of moonshine
I hear your voice
echoing
but I’m still alo~ne

Technically, the fourth one is a Talk Talk song, but No Doubt did a cover of it a few years ago, so I’ll let it slide. :stuck_out_tongue:

I thought it was a cover, guess I should have looked into that feeling. :slight_smile:

Only answer was to leave,
and I am still here,
with your memorie~s
dreaming hopelessly holding in my heart,
all the flowers you left.

river of crystal from ghost in the shell?
[i]
Truth - covered in security
I can’t let you smother me
I’d like to, but it couldn’t work
Trading off and taking turns
I don’t regret a thing
And I’ve got this friend, you see
Who makes me feel and I
Wanted more than I could steal
I’ll arrest myself, I’ll wear a shield
I’ll go out of my way to prove I still
Smell her on you

Don’t - tell me what I wanna hear
Afraid of never knowing fear
Experience anything you need
I’ll keep fighting jealousy
[/i] one of my personal faves

Sorry, I don’t know ANY of those… how ignorant I am!


Original, in kanji -

作詞:須藤あきら
作曲:原一博
編曲:是永巧一
四角い頭 抱えて イクときにイケない
電話のコードも切れたし そろそろキレましょか
ゆうべのゲームも おいしいとこでバグったし

遊ばせてあげてたのに 裏を読む知恵がない
調子に乗った君だから入れてあげよう trash box
ドアを叩いて泣き出せばいい . . . エクスタシー

情熱がその瞳にアレルギー
輝くことに理屈はいらない
閉ざされた狭い部屋の中で
天使は夢見る

情熱はその夢にアレルギー
常識だけじゃ息する意味はない
カフェインの湖で浮かべば
天使は目覚める


In romaji -

shikakui atama kakaete IKU toki ni IKE nai
denwa no KOODO mo kiretashi soro soro KIRE masho ka
yuube no GEEMU mo oishii toko de BAGUttashi

asobasete ageteta no ni ura o yomu chie ga nai
choushi ni notte kimi dakara irete age you trash box
DOA o tataite nakidaseba ii …EKUSUTASHII

jounetsu ga sono hitomi ni ARERUGII
kagayaku koto ni rikutsu ha iranai
tozasareta semai heya no naka de
tenshi ha yumemiru

[Instrumental]

jounetsu ha sono yume ni ARERUGII
joushiki dake ja iki suru imi ha nai
KAFEIN no mizuumi de ukabeba
tenshi ha mezameru


Or, in English -

I carry a square head,
but I can’t come when I have to
The phone cord has been cut, so it’s time to cut the fun
Last night’s game ran into a bug
just when it was getting interesting, to make matters worse, so

Though I amused you
you don’t have the sense to read what lies beyond appearances
Since you’ve gotten carried away
I’ll put you in the trash box
Go ahead and pound on the door and cry… Ecstasy

My eyes are allergic to passion.
There’s no logic in anything that shines.
In a closed-up, cramped room
an angel dreams.

[Instrumental]

My dreams are allergic to passion
There’s no meaning to life if you cling only to common sense
Lifted up by a lake of caffeine
an angel awakens.

Ideas?

  1. We should have each other to tea huh?
    We should have each other with cream
    Then curl up by the fire
    And sleep for awhile
    It’s the grooviest thing
    It’s the perfect dream

  2. Fame, Fame, fatal Fame
    It can play hideous tricks on the brain
    But still I’d rather be Famous
    Than righteous or holy, any day

  3. Hiryuu! “Fuck Tha Police” - NWA To the police I’m sayin fuck you punk
    Readin my rights and shit, it’s all junk
    Pullin out a silly club, so you stand
    With a fake assed badge and a gun in your hand

  4. Our little town fell into a state of shock
    A lot of people were saying things that made little sense
    Then the next thing you know the head of handyman joe
    Was found in the fountain of the mayor’s residence
    Foul play can really get a small town going

  5. And you snatch your rattling last breaths
    with deep-sea-diver sounds,
    and the flowers bloom like
    madness in the spring

That oughta get you started.

It is River of Crystals from and it’s sung by Kimiko Itoh. From the GiTS: Innocence ost. :slight_smile: and your’s is Nirvana - Lounge Act

Edit. Ninten’s is Bug list by Akira Sudou :slight_smile: never forget bubblegum crisis.

Ok another one from me…

hikari o ataete,
yarikatawa wakaranai kedo,
chigau basho e, yuku tame ni,
hoshii mono mo, katachiwa nani mo nai kedo,
saigo no uchuu, kowashite ima, ashita e,

Man, this thread is filling up with lyrics and no guesses. We’re gonna have to get some of these identified before we go too far. :stuck_out_tongue:

I marked which ones in my post were identified, and by whom.

[edit]

Couldn’t resist, I guess I’m gonna flood the place with lyrics, too. :stuck_out_tongue:

[edit]

Moved these up to that top post

My! Brother! Knows Karl Marx!
Met him eating mushrooms in the peoples park!
He said ‘What do you think, about my manifesto?’
I like your manifesto, put it to the testo.

And since that one’s pretty obscure.

I like the bed I’m sleeping in,
And just like me, it’s broken in,
Each night, I’m just older.

Number 8 of Sat’s is Kiss Me Deadly.
I don’t know what version it is, cause I’m pretty sure there are a few.
I’ve happened to hear Reel Big Fish’s version.

Lita Ford sang the original, but you’re right, Reel Big Fish did cover it.

Oh, a Lita Ford reference. That’s cool.

1)From the front to the back
try to top that
Six 15s beaten hard in the back
Push that button
Microwave oven
I’m just gettin started pimp, you ain’t seen nuthin
Is that a fish tank burrowed in the mid of da dash?
Yeah pimpin and don’t putcha fingers on my glass

2)I’m on the grind, Grand Hussle
Got the mind and the muscle
50 karots in the crown to shine on you suckas
Still tote the glock 40 for the haters and the bustas

3)Out on bail fresh outta jail California dreamin
Soon as I step on the scene I’m hearin hoochies screamin
Fiendin for money and alcohol
Tha life of a west side playa (where cowards die)
Only in Cali where we riot not rally to live and die in LA

4)What if Heaven was Hell and vica versa
If I told you go to Hell, would you tell I cursed ya?
I reimbursed ya with the truth so you know my fate
And pray I die, I’m that nigga that they love to hate
I wanna make you use yo mind, God has sent a sign
And when you listen to these rhymes, nigga take your time
Again I ask, Heaven was hell and vica versa
