Subject: "Round" and "Around": another lyric quiz (FINISHED!!)

Written By: nally on 10/20/05 at 11:01 pm

I've managed to conjure up another quiz in which the song titles have a common word (or variation of it). In this case it's "around" and "round" (however, 18 of the 20 songs will have "around" in their title while the other two have "round"; there weren't very many "round" songs to choose from). Anyway, you know the drill! And as always, NO CHEATING (i.e., using Google or any other means of looking these up); if you don't know the answer, save it for someone who does.

Limit 4 for now. Good luck!

1. If the band slows down we'll yell for more
mandamoo Rock Around The Clock ~ Bill Haley & His Comets

2. I'm a loser and a user

Hi Jeff  :)


#1   Rock Around the Clock - Bill Halet and his Comets

Hi Manda! That one's correct. I think you meant to type Bill Haley (not Halet)...but you get full credit anyway! :)


12. Up Around The Bend - CCR

Right-o, Gaylon! ;)


15 Rocking around the christmas tree-Brenda Lee (also sung by numerous other artists)

Tina...you got that one right. I'm sure it's sung by numerous other artists, but Brenda Lee's rendition is the most famous. ;)


8. Run-Around-Blues Traveler

You got it, Indy! :)

#3 is Don't Turn Around by Ace of Base :)

I would have said the original 1988 version by Aswad, but I saw your post in the games section  ;)

Re-scanning your quiz, I believe #20 is Round and Round by Ratt.  Actually, I know it is becuase I have that song on my stereo now LOL

Both are correct, WHISTLE!! By the way, I heard #20 on the radio just a couple nights ago. 8)

About #3, I don't know the original '88 version by Aswad; I just know that it was a big hit for Ace of Base in 1994. I even have a copy of the album.

I have added additional lyrics and a hint for the last song on here. If no one guesses it by tomorrow, I'll remove the limit.

From your clues, I gather that #9 is Hanging around by Counting Crows.


Did you know that Counting Crows have collaborated with Dutch band Blof? They rerecorded "Holiday in Spain" with added Dutch vocals ("Spanje tot besluit"). It was a big success over here (biggest hit ever for Counting Crows).

That's absolutely correct, Henk! Thanks for finishing it off!! 8)

On a side note, no I do not know that they've collaborated with any Dutch band. In the U.S., we probably didn't hear of it. Also, in the U.S., their biggest hits have been "Mr. Jones" and "Round Here" (I was deciding whether to use that one or "Hangin' Around" for this quiz).

As far as I know, the song is only featured on a Counting Crows album (can't remember which one, but it was recent), not on any Blof album, so it must have sold in US too. :-\\

Thank goodness you didn't, for I wouldn't have guessed it then. ;)
Hanging Around was a minor success for Counting Crows over here, and apart from Holiday In Spain no other song was ever charted.

Maybe someone else would have. Again, thanks for finishing this one.

And thanks to all who have participated in this quiz; it's greatly appreciated!! :) I don't know when I will post another one (or what the theme, if any, will be)...but I must concentrate more on my studies.

Oops...I have to correct myself... :-Big Yellow Taxi reached #19, and Accidentally In Love reached #15.
Holiday In Spain even reached #1.

That's my final say, Jeff. I promise.
