Subject: Lyrics Quiz Extra line added limits off

Written By: snozberries on 08/04/08 at 12:05 am

Okay so I decided to try my hand at another quiz.  Only 15 songs this time its all I could think of

There is no specific genre or decade - instead the songs are linked thematically.  Its no big secret what the topic is once you read the lyrics.  I tried to make it a little harder than my last quiz.... hope I succeeded.  Please do enjoy.


For now I'm going to list the decade the song is from and then if you still need help I will add clues. It pleases me that this was not as easy as my last quiz!





1. He might be doing you but he’s thinking about me. So lay that finger on another lover 1990's
This one is the hardest one because it is really an obscure song I will tell you that its an R&B group consisting of 3 female singers.
The group name is a combination of the first syllable of each members' names
 
5pts for the song, 5 pts for the artist and 3 pts if you know the artists real names.... I figure you're just gonna google it anyway. 


2.   We meet everyday at the same café Me & Mrs Jones / Billy Paul (Philipeno)



3. I know there are no guarantees In love you take your chances 1990's
This song got a lot of radio airtime around the same time the movie it's from was in theaters. Major R&B recording aritist.




4. All he tells me is lies to keep me near I never leave him down 1990's
If you know me; then you may know the name of one of my favorite R&B groups.  I think of  one,  :\'(  , more often than the others.



5. I wonder who bought him those BVD’s  Things That Make You Go hmmm.../C+C Music Factory (FooBar)



6. Does she talk, the way I do? Is her voice reminding you? 1990's
Oh come on! I thought this would be one the first ones named!You'd have to be crazy not to know it.  It seems so obvious now that I've added the second line doesn't it.




7. Does she think she’s being clever? Nobody/ Sylvia (ladybug316)
           
8. You buy her diamonds.  Bright sparkling diamonds. 1960's
You can give me the original artist from the 60s or I'll even take the name of the idol who brought this classic back.



9. That girl’s so untrue, she don't appreciate you  1990's
This beautiful singer wanted to dance her way to Fame. She later lucked out when her part was expanded to star status on her sitcom because the original star left amid scandal



10. You better watch your back before she turn into a killer. It Wasn't Me / Shaggy (feat. Rik-Rok  Bonus pt to Henk)      (zacpot)




11. You keep your mouth shut and it won’t get back to her or him. O.P.P. / Naughty By Nature (whistledog)


12. I’m not gonna fade as soon as you close your eyes  You Ought to Know/ Alanis Morrisette (ladybug316)

13. Don’t say I can’t go with other boys You Don't Own Me / Lesley Gore (mooster)

14. You’re out with someone else  Lovin', Touchin', Squeezin'/ Journey (ladybug316)

15. I’m in love with another man. 1980's All I Want To Do Is Make Love To you/ Heart (Odyssey)


Score 1 point for title and 1 point for artist

ladybug316 - 6
FooBar - 2
Philipeno - 2
mooster - 2
whistledog - 2
zacpot - 2
Odyssey  - 2
Henk - 1

What, no LL Cool J, I'm The Type Of Guy or Blondie's Call Me to balance things out? :-)

Yeah, you did a good job.  I can clearly recall at least 3 or 4 of the remaining lyrics, but the theme is so common in pop music that I couldn't actually remember either the artist or the track without Googling for them.  Which, as we all know, is ch^H^Hpoor form on these quizzes, so I'll have to post the only one that immediately came to mind without googling, and wait 'til the rest of y'all solve the quiz.

5. I wonder who bought him those BVD’s
C&C Music Factory, Things That Make You Go Hmmm...

As I was saying (when I got interrupted)... Nothing left that I recognize, I'm afraid. :-\\


I'll take the bonus point for #10, though. The missing artist is Ricardo 'Rik-Rok' Ducent.
