Lyrics Quizz - Updated: now with bonus radio! :-)


Lug 24 2006, 20:49

Yeah, another one. Rules are simple: I put my tracks on shuffle and type the first sentence (or so) of each song and you get to guess the track name. I give you a list of the artists (in no particular order) as a clue. Googling is cheating.

Bonus: listen to this quizz radio of all the solved (and streamable) tracks on this list!

1. Come over to the window, my little darling...
So Long, Marianne
2. Sie schteit gärn am bahnhof am ticketoutomat...

7. You said I'm gonna buy this place and burn it down...

13. There's a place where you can go / Music's hot and lights are low...
14. Put a lid on it. What's that you say?
15. Young man, there's no need to feel down...
Y.M.C.A.(single version)
16. What am I going to do, I am crying a bottle of wine over you...
17. Un toréador dans l'arène, c'est ça l'amour petite reine...

Minnie the Moocher

Ane Brun
Anita O'Day
Arthur H

Leonard Cohen

P.S. Some of them are very easy... other not. Some even have the title right there in the first sentence, and mind you I kept fair and kept the sentence complete (except for the last one, that would have been too easy, still is). Only one song per artist.

All tracks here come from my iTunes "top rated" playlist so there are songs I now like very much and others... I used to like very much (and still do, for most of them). What I want to say here is that, again, my musical tastes look like the ones of a random (frenchie) teenage girl, but who cares. I always wanted to be a teenage girl once, anyway. Once, yes. Oh, forget it. But not French, though.

  • tguignar won't let me edit my post (!!?), so I can't reflect the correct songs on it. You've got everything right so far, and CruytyJello is right about 21 and 30 as well (and 21 is the Unplugged version by Nirvana, yes)
