The lyrics meme, if you're not too bored of it already:

1) We are the pretty, petty thieves and you're standing on our streets, where Hector was...
The First of the Gang to Die Morrisseyhernewshoes


2) It's freezing. You'll never get to heaven with a smile on your face from me

Waiting for the Great Leap Forwards, Billy Braggse_parsons

My oh my, David Grayxsabx


6) A muddle of nervous words could never amount to betrayal
Into Temptation, Crowded House marakara



8) Fantastic expectations. Amazing revelations. Final execution and resurrection. Free expression as revolution
F.E.A.R. Ian Brown xsabx


9) Maybe it’s our nowhere towns, our nothing places and our cellophane sounds
Trash, Suede, _ducks


10) And all throughout the years I’ve never strayed from you my dear. But you suspect I’m somewhere else
If I Can't Change Your Mind, Sugar kirbyfest


11) Games, changes and fears I Try, Macy Gray

The Rat, The Walkmen, unwinding


16) All of the people around us, they say "Can they be that close?"

Dry The Rain, Beta Band sophia_helix</small>

18) Shouldn't you have got a couple piercings and then decided maybe that you were gay?
Not If You Were The Last Junkie on Earth, Dandy Warhols unwinding

ETA: Unguessed...

5) "Don't flap, I'll give it back!" But woman, it's not the lack of my possessions that is making me feel cruel
Golden Green, The Wonder Stuff

7) If they gave degrees for cheating destiny, then man, I got a first
I Aint Scared of Lightning, Tom McRae, which I have listened to 75 times on my mac alone, according to iTunes

12) It'�s growing like a tangled vine and rising like a river in the tide
Act Naturally Semisonic.

All correct. The Rat was one of my favourite songs from last year.

Oh, I've been completely hopeless at every single one except grifyn's. For some reason I knew a whole bunch of the ones she posted.

I do love it, though.

I should know #10, and it's on the tip of my damn tongue, but I'm brain farting.

#13 is either the Smiths or Morrissey because I can hear his voice singing it ... is it "William It Was Really Nothing"?

Dec. 21st, 2004 03:21 am (UTC)
I think you once sent me a copy of 10.

13, the group is right but the song is later than William...

Re: I finally get one! woohoo!
YES. Right on both Morrissey counts, and you're right that it's Aztec Camera.

You Are The Quarry is such a return to form. Irish Blood, English Heart expresses things I think in a way that songs haven't since I was about 15, when I was also listening obsessively to The Smiths, and particularly Stop Me...

3. Billy Bragg - Sab's pick from the YV CD1 - Waiting for the great leap forwards.

I am also sad you missed my fabulous Snow Patrol quote from MY lyrics meme.

Dec. 21st, 2004 04:16 am (UTC)
It is indeed Billy.

I was up north when you did your lyrics meme but I know I wouldn't have got it from that fragment. I'm rubbish at these myself.

Oh the Snow Patrol Polar Bear CD is only seven quid here, do you want it? It'll probably be even cheaper in the post-xmas sales

Oh, dude. #11 "Games, changes and fears" is Macy Gray, "I Try." And I KNOW, bone-deep, #6. It's Paul Simon, I think? Man, it's RIGHT THERE.

6. isn't Paul Simon but you know it anyway, I know you do. If I had to pick someone who was likely to know it, you'd be in my top five.

#6 - "Into Temptation" by Crowded House (because I'm all about the '80's bands)

#16 - "We Are Family" (the worst part of every wedding I've been to in recent years) by The Sisters Sledge.

Take Care

Both right. I used to work on the bar staff of a 70s disco which was a notorious copping off shop. It cured me of the need to hear 'We Are Family' in a public place ever again.

#17. Beta Band - Dry the Rain.

I am not entirely uncool! Sort of. Damn "High Fidelity" soundtrack, betraying my uncoolness. *G*

2 is Wide Open Space by Mansun :D

The Lyrics Meme Loser
You'd think that I would've guessed the first three of your unguessed songs since I've listened to them all approximately eleventy billion times, but no, not so much. Lyrics pop into my head when I have no reason to think of them, but when I'm *trying* to remember songs, I am a blank slate.

I am so ashamed.

And the problem with that is *what*, exactly... ?
