More Random Lyrics!

This is actually harder than I thought, so it won't be a regular spot here at OrangeBlog. I know, I know. Please don't cry.

Prince is, sadly, NOT represented in the lyrics below.
I was looking for a picture of him crying and came across this photo.
At least he's pouting.

This photo reminded me that I had a pair of sunglasses exactly. like. these. in highschool.
Which made ME cry.
So go ahead and picture me with two uneven tracks of tears emergng from under (not over! That would be weird!) glasses exactly like these, and you've got a good photo to capture the feeling you've got knowing this MAY VERY WELL BE the VERY LAST SET of Random Lyrics you seen on OrangeBlog.
*sniffle!*

These are lyrics from another 25 songs that I pulled randomly from my head. #18 has been rolling around in that vast cavity for a few days now, and I was HOPING this exercise would help knock it on outta there, but it's pretty firmly lodged and stuck on endless loop. I'm singing it for you right now, so it's, like, a total giveaway. See if you can guess any of the rest of them. Or not. I realize some people don't have as much time as I do at the moment. You may want to save this blog entry for a day when I'm actually busy with, oh I don't know, work or something.

Today is not one of those days.

So here you go! More fun lyrics!

1. Hey there mighty brontosaurus, have you got a lesson for us?

2. And his face which was a paper-white mask of evil sang us this song

3. I'm going to Wichita

4. Just put me in a wheelchair and put me on a plane

5. You're such a silly woman

6. Kemosabe, you can kiss my ass I bought a boat I'm going off to sea

7. I wish I was as fortunate, as fortunate as me

8. I'm a new day rising

9. We have the same intrigue as a court of kings

10. Chicken's in the bread pan picking at dough

11. I think that God's got a sick sense of humor and when I die I expect to find him laughing

12. I see you've sent my letters back and my LP records and they're all scratched

13. If you take away our rocket fuel we're gonna escape in cars

14. Nothing matters but the weekend from a Tuesday point of view

15. You're an acid junkie college flunkie dirty rotten daddy bastard

16. She smiled and said "forgive me" as she let go of my hand

17. Your head is firmly lodged way up your butt where it belongs

18. No sex, no drugs, no wine, no women, no fun, no sin, no you, no wonder it's dark

19. She could kill you with the wink of an eye

20. She's filing her nails while they're dragging the lake

21. Dr. Heckyll is his own little guinea pig because they all think he's mad

22. He could get away with murder one and you would clean the smoking gun

23. I'm as happy as Christmas

24. Where the demons dwell and the banshees live and they do live well

25. And these children that you spit on as they try to change their worlds are immune to your consultations they're quite aware of what they're going through.

If I were playing along, which I'm not because it's not the real meme, I would say that #10 is Charlie Daniels's Devil Went Down to Georgia and #20 is Elvis Costello's Watching the Detectives.

If you were playing by my rules, which I totally know you'd never do, you'd be right.

2) They Might Be Giants "Turn Around"

Excellent! #6 is actually "If I Had A Boat" for those of you who are looking to me as the next Nick Hornby and want to listen to everything I do because I'm totally just that cool.

7 - Some Pearl Jam song, which I think is on Yield, but I don't remember the name.

11 - "Blasphemous Rumours" by Fast Fashion (Depeche Mode)

18 - "Turning Japanese" by the Vapors

OrangeMoJoJo said...

Bingo! #7 is "Wish List."

#18 - Turning Japanese? I really think so!

Crap. It's back in my head now. Thanks aLOT, Mugsy! For a while it had been replaced by Michael Bolton's version of "How Am I Supposed to Live Without You?"

....ah jeez. It's back.

HELP! What's the song that you're supposed to focus on to clear your head of all other songs?

1. The Po-Lice "Walking In Your Footsteps"

I know #25 but it isn't coming to me. Crap. I hate this game.

evandebacle said...

Oh right, "Changes." I just needed the David Bowie voice to invade my head.

evandebacle said...

#21 in "Dr. Heckyll and Mr. Jive." Though I prefer "Be Good Johnny."

evandebacle said...

12 is also The Police. You must really be getting into the reunion hype.

"I Can't [I can't I can't I can't] Stand Losing You"?
