Subject: David Bowie Lyrics Quiz [LIMIT OFF]

Written By: Henk on 01/14/16 at 3:08 pm

As a tribute to the late great David Bowie I've compiled this lyrics quiz for you.
Fifty-six songs that span nearly five decades (1967 - 2015)...
Some are covers, some are collaborations, some are well known, some are obscure...
Shouldn't be too hard (if you're a fan)! Limit = OFF to start with.

Enjoy, and please no cheating! :)





01 A plague I call a heartbeat

02 All the knives seem to lacerate your brain

03 And I, I'll drink all the time

04 And if you say hide, we'll hide

05 Be nice to the big blue sea

06 But the little green wheels are following me

07 Daddy, daddy, get me out of here.

08 Do we have to die for the 50 more?

09 Dropped my cell phone down below

10 Every child must be made to care

11 Feeling like lost little children in fabled lands

12 For this could be the biggest sky

13 Hallo humans, can you feel me thinking?

14 He made him fly through a hole

15 He says he's a beautician and sells you nutrition

16 He's crashing out with Sylvian

17 I think she's dancing, what do I know?

18 I'd love to get a letter

19 If we can sparkle he may land tonight

20 I'll give you television

21 I'm stepping through the door

22 In the back of a dream car, twenty foot long

23 Is it any wonder you are too cool to fool?

24 It doesn't matter what you wear

25 It's just the power to charm

26 Just walking the dead

27 Life's a well-thumbed machine

28 Listen to me, don't listen to me

29 My friend don't listen to the crowd

30 No one moves, no one talks

31 Nothing prepared me for your smile

32 Nothing seems to make a dent

33 One day nothing meant nothing

34 Pale blinds drawn all day

35 See the mice in their million hordes

36 She asked me to stay and I stole her room

37 She got Latin roots

38 So I turned myself to face me

39 So long child, it's awful dark

40 Something happened on the day he died

41 Something tells me you're a devil's daughter

42 Sweetly reminiscent, something mother used to bake

43 Terror in a best laid plan

44 The European cannon is here

45 The gods forgot they made me

46 The rest can go to hell

47 Then I put him on a train to Eastbourne

48 This chaos is killing me

49 This is our last dance

50 This mellow-thighed chick just put my spine out of place

51 Tits and Explosions

52 Unfurl the flag

53 We must have died alone, a long long time ago

54 When I was falling to pieces I screamed in pain

55 Who's been wearing Miranda's clothes?

56 You want more and you want it fast

Well, that's a bit disappointing... I can only give you two. :-\\ I'm afraid #44 is incorrect, and so is #52.

I was typing faster than my brain could throw out song names.

And....I'm sure that #44 is mentioned in the outro of TVC 15....
And....I see the error in #52. It's Boys Keep Swinging...wrong title.

Just to make sure I've had a listen, but I didn't hear it. :-\\ It's also not mentioned in the lyrics.
Could it be you're confused with another track from the same album...?


And....I see the error in #52. It's Boys Keep Swinging...wrong title.

Correct!


40. Blackstar - another new one (off his last album)


Also correct!

I was afraid people might be struggling with those, but I'm glad you proved me wrong. :)


34. The man who sold the world?


I'm sorry, but that's incorrect. I've used every song only once, and #53 is already taken from The Man Who Sold The World.


23. Fame
26. Sound and Vision


Dom! What a surprise to see you here! :)

I can give you #23, but not #26. (FYI: Sound And Vision is in this quiz somewhere... ::) )


48. Hallo Spaceboy

Nice quiz, I miss Bowie already...


Glad you liked my quiz. And glad to say that you got those two correct. 8)
