Subject: A New Random 80's Lyrics Quiz (DONE!)

Written By: CeramicsFanatic on 10/24/08 at 2:37 pm

Hi everyone!  :)

I know it's been a while since I last posted a quiz -- so here's my latest offering!  All lyrics are from songs which were hits in the 1980's, and I tried to pick from songs which aren't commonly used in lyrics quizzes just to make this a bit more challenging!  You know the drill!

Limit: 3

(As always, NO CHEATING, please!!)


1. "I'm the chill that never left your spine"
ladybug (Take Me To Heart - Quarterflash)

2. "Shoot me like a rocket into space"
ladybug (Lovin' Every Minute Of It - Loverboy)

3. "Images of love take me back in time"
bookmistress / Paul (Where Are You Now? - Jimmy Harnen & Synch)

4. "Your eyes touch me physically"
snozberries (The Warrior - Scandal feat. Patty Smyth)

5. "You got sirens for a welcome"
Paul (Wild Boys - Duran Duran)

6. "Summer, summer, summer -- it's like a merry-go-round"
nally (Magic - The Cars)

7. "I must be living in a fantasy world"
WD (High On You - Survivor)

8. "The man on the wireless cries again"
Henk (Dancing With Tears In My Eyes - Ultravox)

9. "You were king of the mountain and she was your queen"
Paul (Three Times In Love - Tommy James)

10. "Night after night my heartbeat shows the fear"
Paul (Overkill - Men At Work)

11. "With you I see forever oh so clearly"
Henk (Nothing's Gonna Change My Love For You - Glenn Medeiros)

12. "God knows we could some romance in this sleepy bedroom town"
bookmistress (The Last Worthless Evening - Don Henley)

13. "American Express will do nicely -- thank you"
Paul (Private Dancer - Tina Turner)

14. "You're rollin' over and over so divine"
FB (Tired Of Toein' The Line - Rocky Burnette)

15. "With me true love can still be found"
Paul (Second Time Around - Shalamar)

16. "We'll keep the spirit alive on and on"
maddog (Sweet Freedom - Michael McDonald)

17. "Oh, the sweet smell of success"
mooster / Henk (Handle With Care - Travelling Wilburys)

18. "Watch the night go up in smoke"
nally (Rock Of Ages - Def Leppard)

19. "I've been kicked so many times I don't know nothing else"
bookmistress (Sentimental Street - Night Ranger)

20. "Last time I asked you I really got a lame excuse"
ladybug (Say It Isn't So - Hall & Oates)

Hiya Karen! I think I know a couple of these.

I believe number 6 is the first line from "Magic" by The Cars.

And number 18 sounds like "Rock Of Ages" by Def Leppard.

Hi there, Jeff!  :)

Your answers are both correct...but I just wanted to let you know that the lyric I chose from the Cars song is actually the second line... ;)

Oh yeah, that's right...the first line just has "Summer" in it. But I knew that the song started that way! 8)

Hi Karen  :)

#17  Handle With Care - George Harrison  ???

I say this with uncertainty only because the line I generally sing in my head goes "Oh, the sweet smell of success..."  :-\\

If you're right about the song, you're not entirely right about the artist. That would be the Traveling Wilbury's (which included George Harrison). ;)

Hi, Amanda!  :)

You're correct with the song title, but it was actually done by a super-group and not George Harrison alone...

Henk has the right answer (see below), so you two will share credit on this one... :)

I just knew as soon as you put those clues up that I'd be hit by 'realisation'!  ::)

#9. 'Three Times In Love' - Tommy James
#15. 'The Second Time Around' - Shalamar

I have a feeling what the the other one is, but let's see if someone else can nab it!
