Name That Tune!

I’m sure we’ve done this before.

Here’s how it works: post a few lines from a song. Identify the songs, and where possible, the artist. Bonus points for naming multiple artists if the song was covered.

No peeking (at Google)!

Here are a few to get us started, all from heavy-ish rock genres:

R1: Every day sends future to past
Every breath leaves brings me closer to my last

R2: Shut me down
Knock me to the floor
Shoot me up
Fuck me like a whore

R3: Pick a crime from the menu
Pick a sentence and a venue
And pay up the down payment called bail
The system’s for sale

R4: Feelings are intense
Words are trivial

R5: I’m a perfectionist
And perfect is a skinned knee

R6: *In the headlights
Of a stretch car
You’re a star *

R7: So follow me into the desert
As desperate as you are

I can sing a song for decades with no conscious memory of its lyrics. They just fit with the tune.

Count me out.

I think I know the first and the last…but I’m stumped on the rest!

R1: Pull Me Under-Dream Theater
R7: Burden in My Hand-Soundgarden

And not peeking is hard!

Both correct.


Mad1- I had the shit til it all got smoked

Mad2-You’re a sewer rat decaying in a cesspool of pride

Mad3-You take my body
I give you heat
You say you’re hungry
I give you meat
I suck your mind
You blow my head

Mad4-Three feet tall, so very small
I’m no trouble
I bring thunder and lightning
Sun and the rain
For all the people in the land

Mad5-And the Anzio bridgehead
Was held for the price
Of a few hundred ordinary lives.

R3: Megadeth - Kick the Chair
R4: Depeche Mode - Enjoy the Silence

Mad3: Queen - Get Down Make Love
Mad5: Pink Floyd - When the Tigers Broke Free

Both correct, yevgeny.

Warren Zevon - *I Was in the House When the House Burned Down

HKF1 - Please allow me to adjust my pants
So I can dance the good time dance
That puts all the onlookers and innocent bystanders into a trance

HKF2 - Soon I discovered that this rock thing was true
Jerry Lee Lewis was the devil

HKF3 - *Almost every day
I see the same face
On broken picture tube
It fits the attitude *

HKF4 - Missy aggravation
Some sacred questions
You stroke my locks

U2- Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me


Mad4- Well, it’s “Mad the Swine” of course! :slight_smile:

Hehe…Yep :slight_smile:


Thought this would be more popular…Nothing to add new right now but Mad2 is unanswered.

Mad2-You’re a sewer rat decaying in a cesspool of pride

Eve 6 - Beautiful Oblivion?

The Pixies- Gouge Away
I love that song.

TK1: At night I drink myself to sleep
and pretend I don’t care that you’re not here with me
Cause it’s so much easier to handle all my problems
if I’m too far out to sea

TK2: I’m screaming
I met you this way
You’re nice to me like ice

TK3: They took you up to midnight mass
and left you in a lurch,
so you dropped a button in the place
and spewed up in the church

You’re just an old barrow boy
Have you found a new toy to replace me?
Can you face me? Well now you can kiss my ass goodbye.

That would be Queen, ‘‘Death On Two Legs’’
olives1 (pop)
But when you shake your ass
They notice fast
And some mistakes were built to last

olives2 (uh… alternative?)
Doesn’t matter if you’re skinny
Doesn’t matter if you’re fat
You can dress up like a sultan
In your onion head hat

olives3 (alternative rock)
When they play tunes, when they play tunes, when they play riffs of the hard rock beat
Gimme some love, gimme some love sugar from the drop with the old school meet

olives4 (classic rock)
The whole wide world
An endless universe
Yet we keep looking through
The eyeglass in reverse
Don’t feed the people
But we feed the machines
Can’t really feel
What international means

HKF2: Jesus Built My Hotrod-- Ministry

JQ1: They said you’ll make a lot of money, worry about it later.

R8: Strange how laughter looks like crying
with no sound
Raindrops taste like tears
without the pain
