Name that artist

    Ok, I'm bored so I thought we'd play a game. Plus, I get songs stuck in my head ALL THE TIME. And usually, they're just out of nowhere...songs I haven't heard in ages. A lot of the time, I only know like 2 lines, don't know the name of the song or the artist. Any idea how annoying that is? Especially when it plays over and over and over and over and over...you get the idea...in my head.

    So, jot down a few lyrics and the person beneath you (the person who posts beneath) names the artist or band, then includes their lyrics.

    by the way, googling the lyrics is cheating. :wink:

    This is the one that has been stuck in my head for the last TWO days.


    In the white room
    With black curtains
    Near the station


    That one shouldn't be too hard.

    Like "White Room" a lot but was never really a Cream fan.

    Here's mine:

    I remember every little thing
    As if it happened only yesterday
    Parking by the lake
    And there was not another car in sight

    I was never a Cream fan, either, but always did like that song.

    Yours was Meatloaf, Paradise by the Dashboard Lights. Awesome song.

    Here's mine again:

    Two days past eighteen
    He was waiting for the bus
    In his army greens

    Let's see ... in the C/W genre I know Waylon, Willie, Johnny, Travis, Garth, Tammy, Patsy AND the DIXIE CHICKS!

    Made me think. Hope this makes you think a little:

    The screen door slams, Mary's dress sways
    Like a vision she dances across the porch as the radio plays
    Roy Orbison singing for the lonely
    Hey, that's me and I want you only

    hmmmm...it's there somewhere in the recesses of my memory. I'm going to have to think on this one a bit.

    Next four lines:

    Don't turn me home again, I just can't face myself alone again
    Don't run back inside, darling you know just what I'm here for
    So you're scared and you're thinking
    That maybe we ain't that young anymore

    (and I'm off to bed -- good luck!)

    Oh! Oh! Oh! I was playing Pogo and BAM it just hit me. Is it Bruce Springsteen? Ok. Now I'm doubting myself. But, I'll go with it for now. :smile:

    Try this one:

    Feeling better now that we're through
    Feeling better 'cause I'm over you
    I learned my lesson, it left a scar
    Now I see how you really are

    Heather, that's cheating! Too many artists have done that song but I'll go with Linda Ronstadt's version but since you did start with Cream, you probably went with Van Halen's. Trying to remember if Bonnie Raitt did a version of it, too, but drawing a blank.

    Hope you're getting some sleep. Wished I were.

    Okay, your (or someone else's turn):

    She's been playing in a room on the strip
    For ten years in Vegas
    And every night she looks in the mirror
    But she only ages

    Thunder road by The boss.

    You're no good by Linda Ronstadt.

    I'm not so good at this but husband is a bit of music buff.

    Have any of you seen the new show called Name Those Lyrics. It's pretty neat.

    MeowBunny, yours is Babydoll by Pat Greene?

    And our house just ain't a home
    I'm always somewhere else
    And you're always here alone..."

    BBK, you do like Gene Simmons, don't you?

    Get the feeling I like music a bit? Sure glad I like lots of different genres. But I hate to admit it, Marie got that one.

    Here's my next one:

    You're talking it all sounds fair
    You promise your love how much you care
    I'm still listening and still unsure
    Your actions are lacking, nothing is clear

    I won't play as this is what I do...music. But, you've had some great ones!

    Spending all my nights. all my money going out of the town
    Doing anything just to get you off of my mind

    But when the morning comes and I"m back where I started again
    Trying to forget you is just a waste of time

    Abbey,

    "Baby Come Back"?...Player, isn't it? OMG...I can't remember what I did yesterday, but give me lyrics and I can remember what I was doing specifically when they were playing in my youth!! :smile: This one imparticular will always remind me of being 19 and the love of my life, Dave, at that time!!!

    This is fun...

    Okay, here's mine:

    Lord, I was stunned shoulda' seen it come a long time ago.
    When I realized the reality gave me a roll
    If things are the same then explain why your kiss is so cold
    and that mist in your eyes feels like rain on the fire in my soul



    If anyone gets this, I'll be amazed!!

    Vicki...you have the right song, but not artist.

    Here's another. I use this almost every event. Everyone knows the song, but no one knows the artist. I use this for trivia all the time.

    I don't remember what day it was
    I didn't notice what time it was
    All I know is that I fell in love with you
    And if all my dreams come true
    I'll be spending time with you

    Vicki .. I grew up on Conway Twitty. :)

    Abbey's have me stumped. Still waiting for the answers on my last two, so won't post a new one.

    I didn't know anyone other than Linda Ronstadt had done that song. I've never been a Van Halen fan - didn't know they did it. Sorry! :bag:

    No More Words by Berlin?

    Try this one:

    You packed in the morning, I stared out the window
    And I struggled for something to say
    You left in the rain without closing the door
    I didn't stand in your way.

    (The original artist. I rarely care for remade versions.)

    Way To Go on Berlin!

    Original was Randy Vanwarmer but Dolly's was a better version.

    I prefer Randy Vanwarmer's version. But, like I said there are very few remakes that I like as well as the original. I think it's because of the memories associated with the songs.

    And since you mentioned it, I'm thinking that Bonnie Raitt did do a version of 'You're No Good'. Linda Ronstadt's album with that song came out when I was a wee little. My mom's friend had it and everytime we went over to her house I asked to play it. If I remember correctly, the album jacket was black and the lyrics were printed in pink. Funny what we remember.

    Did BBK not get your other lyrics? I thought she did. I have no idea on them, nor on Abbey's.
