Name That Tune

In this game, I post some lyrics from a song. Then the next poster identifies
the song and artist and does the same. We’ll start with this one:

She say it’s cold outside and she hands me my raincoat
She’s always worried about things like that
She says it’s all gonna end and it might as well be my fault
And she only sleeps when it’s raining
And she screams and her voice is straining

“3 am” by Matchbox 20 - helps to have a 16 yr old son in a band’’

Ok here it goes - although I am over 40 I really this bands music

how can you see into my eyes like open doors
leading you down into my core
where I’ve become so numb without a soul my spirit sleeping somewhere cold
until you find it there and lead it back home

Evanescence “Bring Me To Life” (They are so awesome!)

Try this one.

My life is brilliant.

My life is brilliant
My love is pure.
I saw an angel.
Of that I’m sure.
She smiled at me on the subway.
She was with another man.
But I won’t lose no sleep on that,
'Cause I’ve got a plan.

Beautiful by arghhhh john mayer??

Right tune, wrong artist. Guess again. Hint: First name also starts with a J.:wink:

ha I gots it James Blunt!!

ok :slight_smile:

We used to listen to the radio
And sing along with every song we know
We said someday we’d find out how it feels
To sing to more than just the steering wheel

“The hand that wrote this letter sweeps the pillow clean.
So rest your head and read a treasured dream.
I care for no one else but you, I tear my soul to cease the pain,
I think maybe you feel the same…
What can we do?”

Letter to Hermione by David Bowie (I cheated on this one because I wanted to play along… sorry Ora_pro_nobis :o

My my, I tried to hold you back but you were stronger.
O yeah, and now it seems my only chance is giving up the fight.
But how can I ever refuse, I feel like I win when I lose…

Waterloo by Abba. I was in Germany on a school trip when they won the Eurovision Song Contest with this.

“If a double decker bus
smashes into us,
to die by your side -
Oh what a heavenly way to die…
and if a ten ton truck
killed the both of us,
to die by your side,
well, the pleasure and the privilege is mine”

You have weird tastes, ora_pro_nobis…:whacky: :rotfl:

somebody actually wrote this? Must be “emo” !

Ha ha! I like to think of my taste in music as “eclectic”:wink:

Letter to Hermione by David Bowie!

My DH dedicated this song to me years ago while we were apart. I knew it by the first line. sniff sniff

Here’s mine:

And you treated my woman to a flake of your life
And when she came back she was nobodys wife.

Well I see you there with the rose in your teeth
One more thin gypsy thief
Well I see janes awake –

She sends her regards.
And what can I tell you my brother, my killer
What can I possibly say?
I guess that I miss you, I guess I forgive you
Im glad you stood in my way.

If you ever come by here, for jane or for me
Your enemy is sleeping, and his woman is free.

Yes, and thanks, for the trouble you took from her eyes
I thought it was there for good so I never tried.

And jane came by with a lock of your hair
She said that you gave it to her
That night that you planned to go clear
Did you ever go clear?

KC really resisting google on your song there.

can we have say a couple of the notes :smiley:

or since we cant hear, how about a catagory? rock, soft that sort of thing.

unless rocklobster says no hints :slight_smile:

Hints (since rocklobster didn’t protest)
Often classified as “Folk” fans of this male singer/songwriter also listen to Nick Cave & Tom Waits & Nick Drake.

He once wrote a song about Nico.

Is it by The Smiths? I know this song, but my memory is so bad! An awesome friend in college used to make some mix tapes for me. I know nothing about music, but he would give me all of this really cool, progressive music. I can’t think of the title, but it might be The Smiths or someone really progressive like that. A British band. You’re making me want to find those old tapes!

I’m guessing about Ora Pro Nobis’ song, btw (sorry I might have misspelled you name…)

LOL I was going to say we listen to The Smiths too! LOL

But regarding ora pro’s song, I already nailed it – it’s David Bowie. The song is “Letter to Hermione”

Hi, KCtheMommy, that is too funny. I hardly listen to music anymore it seems, & when I do it is probably from High School Musical or something else that my kids love. I have to dig out those old tapes because some of the bands were really good.Some of the songs were strange,but cool.

I was actually guessing about ora_pro_nobis’ 2nd song, the one about “And if a double decker bus smashes into us”…

Sounds a little strange, but it has been stuck in my head since last night, I just can’t think of the name! ora_pro_nobis, WHERE ARE YOU?! This is driving my crazy! Is it by The Smiths or another British progressive group like that? Hints?

Hi. Does anyone have the answer to ora_pro_nobis’ 2nd song?
