Song Lyrics: A Game
It's very simple: Post a sample of lyrics from a song (as large as several verses or as small as a single couplet) and the person who guesses correctly get's to do the same. Keep going until everybody is bored.

Something easy to start us off:
Quote:A thin moon me in a smoke-screen sky
Where the beams of your lovelight chase
Don't move, don't speak, don't feel no pain
With a rain running down my face

Your matches still light up the sky
And many a tear lives on in my eye

Down in the city just Hoople 'n' me
Don't I love him so

Soulless mutants of muscle and intent. There are billions of us; hardy, smart and dangerous. Shaped by millions of years of death. We are the definitive alpha predator. We build monsters of fire and stone. We bottled the sun. We nailed our god to a stick.

In man's struggle against the world, bet on the man.

How about this one:

Tan me hide when I’m dead, Fred.
Tan me hide when I die.

So I tanned his hide when he died Clyde
Add that’s it hanging on the shed!

Tie Me Kangaroo Down, Sport

How about:

I'm down on my knees
And I'm saying: "Please believe me".
It's hard to fall out of love completely;
It's harder to find a way to come back discretely.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Haunting. First time I’ve heard the song or the artist.

RE: Song Lyrics: A Game
Some people say they will never believe
Another promise they hear in the dark
Because they only remember too well
They heard somebody tell them before
Some people sleep all alone every night
Instead of taking a lover to bed
Some people find that's it's easier to hate
Than to wait anymore

It might be disco and it might be the blues
Or maybe even somethin' like the B-52's
Just a handclap, finger snap,
Even if it's mindless pap,
It's still Billy Joel to me

First warning. :glare: Chas get's to go again. (Also the one I posted but I don't care.)

Chas: Go!

Chas: Go!

Living on the road my friend
Was gonna keep you free and clean.
Now you wear your skin like iron,
Your breath's as hard as kerosene.
You weren't your mama's only boy,
But her favorite one it seems
She began to cry when you said goodbye
And sank into your dreams.
