Subject: Name The Artist (DONE!)

Written By: CeramicsFanatic on 07/28/06 at 3:54 pm

Hi gang!

This quiz is a slightly different take on the typical lyrics quiz.  All you have to do is tell me the artist.  I'm sure you'll be able to figure them out, as they're pretty easy.  8)

Limit: 3


1. Bob Seger remembers standing on the corner at midnight, trying to get his courage up. (Mama K)

2. Elton John entertains by picking brains. (Gaylon)

3. Al Stewart's not the kind to live in the past. (KKay)

4. Donna Summer needs you, by her, beside her, to guide her. (ktelqueen)

5. Diana Ross cherishes the moments with you. (Paul)

6. Only yesterday, Gilbert O'Sullivan was cheerful, bright and gay. (Paul)

7. Madonna's tired of dancing here all by herself. (Mama K)

8. Maxine Nightingale would rather be a fool with a broken heart than someone who never had a part of you. (ktelqueen)

9. Paul Davis sometimes wonders why all the flowers have to die. (Paul)

10. All Rita Coolidge wanted was a sweet distraction for an hour or two. (loki)

11. Billy Idol spends so much time believing all the lies to keep the dream alive. (nally)

12. George Michael's had enough of crime. (kairi747)

13. Bette Midler can fly higher than an eagle. (Paul)

14. Charlene's seen some things that a woman ain't supposed to see. (ktelqueen)

15. Alice Cooper wants to take you and squeeze you till the passion starts to rise. (loki)
