Subject: Movie Songs (Now with answers to the last 2.5!)

Written By: Hitchy on 12/03/02 at 05:45 a.m.

This is my first attempt at a thread, so please forgive me if I stuff it up royally. The following lyrics are all from songs that appeared in movies, some as the theme, others in one context or another, others in more than one movie. Please name for me a movie that each song appeared in. If you can name the artist, more points to you!

PEOPLE! Every attempt to reply is giving me an error code, so I will post remarks here. Needless to say I'm angry 'cause this quiz was supposed to be hard!!

1. (FB).An innocent man in a living hell.

2. (FB).We are the self-preservation society
(FB, you are a legend. I didn't expect anyone to get this)

3. (Tao). We'd like to help you learn to help yourself

4. (Cat). It brings on many changes

5. (Cat). Stay gold

6. (Don). Like the pine trees lining the winding road

7. (Ken). 'cause I don't think that they'd understand

8. (Gore). Did his time in Vietnam, still mad at Uncle Sam
(Really! The movie was also called Working Class Man in Aus)

9. (Zel & Cat). A case of do or die
(I don't know the movie Superfly, but will accept also)

10. But all this worryin' 'bout me is just conscience I guess
(Yes, Ken. And it's the Statler Bros version used in the film) Answer: I'm suprised Ken got it, considering I got half the lyric wrong! The film? Check out the "Pulp Fiction" soundtrack.

11. (IG). Who's that writing - John the Revelator

12. (IG).Sometimes you want the whole enchilada
(It also opens "Tin Cup")

13. She could be the reason
Hint: The male lead masquarades as a reporter from "Horse and Hounds"
Answer: 83 hits and no-one got the Charles Aznavour classic "She" as used at the end of "Notting Hill" (For the older types, also used in "Ten Little Indians").

14. (FB).What does it matter to you, when you've got a job to do

15. (Tao).And his face grew spotty

16. They enchant all the ladies and steal all the scenes
Hint: Old British film with Benny Hill as an airport fire chief.
Answer: "Those Magnificent Men in their Flying Machines"

17. (IG). You're starting to criticize little things I do

18. (Tao).We don't need another hero

19. (IG). When I die and they lay me to rest
(Also is on the floating tape player in "Apollo 13")

20. (Jess).Just to be the man who walked a thousand miles
(What a brilliant movie...)
