The lyrics game

The lyrics guessing game has been going around Facebook so I thought I’d try it out here. The following list contains the first line of 25 different songs that came up randomly on my iPod. How many can you name without looking them up? Feel free to leave a comment, or just think over the answers in your head.

The answer key can be found here.

1. I felt you in my legs before I ever met you
2. Standing on the corner, suitcase in my hand
3. No more maybes, baby’s got rabies
4. There is no end to the love you can give when you change your point of view
5. Take me now, baby here as I am
6. Watcha doin tonight, I wish I could be a fly on your wall
7. You wanna rumble in my jungle, I’ll take you on
8. Billy left his home with a dollar in his pocket and a head full of dreams
9. What I’m searching for, to tell it straight I’m trying to build a wall
10. This is a very serious message, so all of you, please listen
11. Stop, drop, shut em down open up shop
12. Now, the mist across the window hides the lines
13. Stay out super late tonight, picking apples, making pies
14. And we’re slow to acknowledge the knots in the laces
15. There are nights when I think that Sal Paradise was right
16. Operator, get me the president of the world!
17. Oh I could hide beneath the wings of the bluebird as she sings
18. It’s just a bad movie where there’s no crying
19. If this world is wearing thin and you’re thinking of escape
20. Shed a tear cause I’m missing you, I’m still alright to smile
21. I get in til the sun rise, going 90 in a 65
22. He said the way my blue eyes shined put those Georgia stars to shame that night
23. It was a rainy night when he came into sight standing by the road, no umbrella, no coat
24. Come on baby dry your eyes, wipe your tears
25. My friend’s got a girlfriend and he hates that bitch

5. Because the Night, Patti Smith (or Springsteen)
8. Young Turks, Rod Stewart
12. Steppin' Out, Joe Jackson
17. Daydream Believer, The Monkees (it can't be Anne Murray!!)
20. Patience, G N'R
22. Tim McGraw, Taylor Swift
23. All I Wanna Do Is Make Love to You, Heart
25. Get a Job, The Offspring

That's all I've got. 6,19, and 24 are soooo familiar, but I can't get the melodies. I'm sure I'll kick myself when I see the answers. As for Taylor Swift, I can't believe I know that because I don't even like her.

I don't know what #16 is, but it sounds like something either Prince or The Time would say.

#6..."Invisible" by Clay Aiken???

Nice job BeckEye! I'm always really bad at these games, so I'd probably only get 1 or 2 if I didn't already know them.

Good call Deena! Clay Aiken did indeed make the list. That's my favorite creepy stalker song.

Also, the photo is a clue for one of them.
