• A different sort of lyrics quiz...spoken word intros/samples

    15 Jul 2006, 15:51 de VeryFuzzyBunny

    Quoted here are spoken word introductions and samples included in music that I know and love. Post the artist and song name (and album title if important) to the comments and also leave as much info as you can about the sample, as in the example below:

    Example:a.) "It's like the mist is what's pretty, you know? all gold and silver. Too bad it can't stay like that all the time. -- Nothing gold can stay.

    Response to example: a.) This is of course the spoken word intro to Hit or Miss, the first track on Nothing Gold Can Stay by New Found Glory. It is sampled from the movie The Outsiders based on the S.E. Hinton book of the same name and is a reference to a Robert Frost poem.

    Other responses need not be quite so thurough. If you can guess the artist and song/album title (whichever is important) it is a correct response.

    My intention with this is not only for everyone else to try and guess but also because I hope to find out where these samples came from. …
  • 'Cus I love to guess...A lyrics game

    Stolen from damn near everyone:

    Step 1: Open up winamp cus iTunes sucks and Windows Media Player is worse yet.
    Step 2: Put 'er on random. Elige canciones.
    Step 3: Post the first line from the first 30 songs that play, no matter what it is.

    ***Googling the lyrics is cheating***

    Post your guesses to the comments. I'll cross out the songs when someone gets them right, you must have both the artist and the title correct. Artist included are listed at the bottom.

    1. Will you walk straight? We're not like them.

    2. I don't want you to try and save me, no I don't want you at all.

    3. My dewy-eyed disney bride, what has tried swapping your blood with formaldehyde

    4. So do I warn you? I see things when I hold you.

    5. From Jamaica to the world, this is just love.

    6. John you've been on the go ever since you were born and I imagine few people in the world today have travelled as much as you have. Now why?

    7. I'll take your words as if you were talking to me.

  • Name That Song

    Step 1: Put your iTunes or equivalent on random.
    Step 2: Post the first line from the first 30 songs that play, not matter how embarassing.
    Step 4: Bold out the songs when someone guesses correctly.
    Step 5: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!

    So yeah...I ended up with 4 Japanese songs, 3 covers, 2 songs that I couldn't understand the lyrics to and couldn't find even on google...and 1 instrumental song that I had to skip. Wow, I don't think those percentages match my collection, considering this is supposed to be random, but oh well, have fun!

    1. "Looking in your eyes I see a paradise, this world that I found is too good to be true" (It's a cover, but either artist will do)

    2. "Eyes open, I'm wide awake I feel I'm in a coma state"

    3. "Turn it inside out so I can see the part of you that's drifting over me"

    4. "In my head everything was perfect and every note resounds in harmony"

    5. "Treeeembling, hold me now"
