Name That Tune

I've listed some lines from songs. Can you name the tune?

No googling!! If you don't know it from the top of your don't know it.

Go ahead..give it a try:

1. Do my dreaming and my scheming lie awake and pray - Beach Boys - In My Room

2. Well, I ain't no saint and you sure as hell ain't no savior,
Every other christmas I would practice good behavior. - Allman Bros. Band - Wasted Words

3. So you stand on the corner in your new english clothes - Billy Joel - Captain Jack

4. Now you see this one eyed midget, Shoutin' the word "Now''
An' you say, "For what reason?''
An' he says, "How?'' - Bob Dylan - Ballad Of A Thin Man
5. Woke up this morning with a wine glass in my hand - Peter Frampton - Do You Feel Like We do

6. He kissed her then and there
She took his ring, took his babies - David Bowie - Young Americans
 Thanks to everyone who played and contributed.  Check back..I just may do this again.

leelee said...

leelee said...

Bond said...

I am not great under pressure with lyrics...but -

1)arg...tip of my tongue...

2)Wasted Words - Allman brothers

3)Piano Man - B. Joel

4)Ballad Of A Thin Man - Dylan

5)Do You feel - Frampton

6)totally blank

Come see the results on The Couch

leelee said...

Wooohooo I knew you'd know most of them Vinny...

Lets see if anyone comes up with 1 and 6. (Easier than you think)

I just came back from the couch..THANKS!!!! TOTALLY EXCITED ABOUT THE WIN!


Bond said...

OK, it was eating me up and I had to google 1 & 6 and now I feel so small and silly...GAWD... How did those two not click...HOW??????

leelee said... an ear worm, you can't get it out of your head..isn't it funny..once you know the song..its like D'OH!

ok lets see if anyone else can figure them out..not that I have such a high readership...but maybe...someone will know..

Okay, I'm going to be honest. Because - who knows? - you might be into that bullsh*t.

1) Not sure

2) Would not have guessed The Allmans

3) I don't think it's Piano Man, but the Billy Joel tip leads me to believe it's from "Big Shot"

4) No idea. But I do appreciate the "one eyed midget" phrase

5) DEFINITELY Peter Frampton's "Do You Feel Like We Do?"

6) David Bowie's "Young Americans"

I LOVE this game! Do this more often. What do I win? ;-)

leelee said...

I will post the answers tomorrow want my west coast readers to have a shot.

But Bond AND Pug you are wrong with the Billy Joel tune..yes Billy Joel, but not either of those songs.

1 and 3 are up for grabs.

Gee Pug, I haven't thought of a about a HUG!! I'll try to come up with more..for another post soon.

thanks for playing.
