Okay, this is a bit late in the making, but I have the results of the lyric quiz I did about a month ago. I know, I'm terrible at keeping up...

Here goes:

1. One dream, one soul, one prize, one goal, one golden glance of what could be...
Well, [ profile] 7threality had the right group, Queen. Title is "A Kind of Magic" from the album of the same name... basically the soundtrack to Highlander.

2. Well I was movin' down the road in some cold blue steel, I had a bluesman in the back and a beautician at the wheel. We goin' downtown in the middle of the night, we laughin' and I'm jokin' and we're feelin' all right...
ZZ Top, "I'm Bad, I'm Nationwide". No takers.

3. Day by day, night after night, blinded by the neon light. Hurry here, hustlin' there, no one's got the time to spare. Money's tight, nothin's free, won't somebody come and rescue me...
Stevie Ray Vaughan, "Crossfire". No takers.

4. The grass was greener, the light was brighter, the taste was sweeter, the nights of wonder, with friends surrounded, the dawn mist glowing, the water flowing, the endless river, forever and ever...
Pink Floyd, "High Hopes". No takers.

5. You have a natural tendency to squeeze off a shot, you're good fun at parties, you wear the right masks, you're old but you still like a laugh in the locker room, you can't abide change, you're at home on the range. You open the suitcase behind old workings, to show off the magnum, you deafened the canyon. A comfort, a friend, only upstaged in the end by the Uzi machine gun. Does the recoil remind you... remind you of sex? Old man, what the hell you gonna kill next? Old timer, who you gonna kill next?
Okay, I admit this was a tough one. Roger Waters, "The Bravery of Being Out of Range". No takers.

6. Anger, he smiles towering in shining metallic purple armor, Queen Jealousy, Envy waits behind, her fiery green gown sneers at the grassy ground. Blue are the life-giving waters taken for granted, they quietly understand. Once happy turquoise armies lay opposite ready, but wonder why the fight is on...
Jimi Hendrix, "Bold As Love". No takers. The version done by the Pretenders on the tribute album kicks butt.

7. I fell in love down in Mexico, Thunderbird wine's the only way to go. I've been in love ten thousand times, all I got to do is remember my lines...
[ profile] 7threality gets a half point for the group. ZZ Top, "Give It Up".

8. Hello there, my old friend. Not so long ago it was 'til the end. We played outside in the pouring rain, on our way up the road we started over again...
Stevie Ray Vaughan, "Life By the Drop". No takers

9. I don't care if my liver is hanging by a thread, don't care if my doctor says I ought to be dead. When my ugly big car won't climb this hill, I'll write a suicide note on a hundred dollar bill.
Dire Straits, "Heavy Fuel"

10. You say the hill's too steep to climb... (Try it!) You say you'd like to see me try... (Climbing) You pick the place and I'll choose the time, and I'll climb that hill in my own way... just wait a while for the right day... and as I climb above the treeline and the clouds, I look down... hear the sounds of the things you said today...
Again, [ profile] 7threality with a half point for the group. Pink Floyd, "Fearless"

Next time I'll try to get some easier lyrics out there.

Okay guys, second round of lyrics... guess the band/artist, then the song...

Cast your minds back to 1972, spot the tune...

1. The poet and the painter casting shadows on the water, as the sun plays on the infantry returning from the sea. The doer and the thinker, no allowance for the other, as the failing light illuminates the mercenary's creed.

2. As I was going over the Cork and Kerry mountains, I saw Captain Farrell and the money he was countin'. I first produced my pistol, and then produced my rapier, I said, "Stand and deliver, or the Devil he may take yah."

3. One sound, one single sound. One kiss, one single kiss. The face outside the window pane, however did it come to this?

4. Every day in the week, I'm in a different city. If I stay too long, people try to hold me down. They talk about me like a dog, talk about the clothes I wear. They don't realize they're the ones who's square. And that is why you can't hold me down. I don't wanna be tied down. I gotta move on. Hey!

5. I got a gal that lives 'cross town. She's the one that really gets down when she boogies.

6. These mist-covered mountains are a home now for me. Though my home is the lowland, and always will be.

7. You gotta keep one eye, looking over your shoulder. And you know it's gonna get harder and harder as you get older. Yeah. And in the end you'll pack up, fly down south, hide your head in the sand. Just another sad old man, all alone and dying of cancer.

8. He hears the silence howling, catches angels as he falls. And the all-time winner has got him by the balls. He picks up Gideon's Bible, open at page one. I think that God, he stole the handle, and the train kept going, no way to slow down.

9. They found James Ambrose dead in his cell. A gaping gash in his arm had drained him down to Hell. No one knew for sure if Ambrose was his name. They called him Yankee Sullivan in early days of fame.

10. If my words did glow, with the gold of sunshine, and my tunes were played on the harp unstrung, would you hear my voice come through the music? Would you hold it near, as it were your own?

Good luck!
