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
“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?”
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”
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…)
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?
