Rock Song Lyrics Quiz

Can You Figure Out Which Rock Song These Lyrics Go To?

Name the tune to which these famous lyrics, rearranged to be in alphabetical order, go:
"a and baby be become can come couldn’t fire funeral get girl hesitate higher i if in is it know liar light lose love mire much my night no now on only our pyre say set that the through time to try untrue wallow was we would yeah you."

Can you get it? I'll tell you the answer, along with another challenge, if you


It's from The Doors' "Light My Fire." That's a fairly easy one, what with "pyre" in there and all. The rest of The Morning News' lyrics quiz, however, is not necessarily so simple. There are some real doozies there, with songs by everyone from Buddy Holly to Aerosmith, and I thought I was pretty good with the well-known rock songs. Try this one, for example:

"a about all along and back behind brown came cast da day days de did do down eyed find fog game girl go going grass green grown happened hard have hearts hey hiding hollow i i’m in jumping just la laughing like lord love making memory mine misty morning my new now old on other our overcome own playing radio rainbow’s rains remember running saw sha sing skipping sliding slipping slow so sometimes stadium standing sunlight that the there thinking thumpin’ to transistor tuesday used wall waterfall way we whatever when where with you"

To see the answer, check out No. 29 on the quiz. How many can you get?

And thanks to Popcandy for the tip!

It's pretty challenging but fun. It's like reading the song rewritten by James Joyce.

The one in this entry is, of course, Light My Fire, and so far I've solved 26 of the songs. Still working on it :)

I ended up getting 30 right, and of the 20 I missed, there were only 3 that I was familiar enough with that I *should* have gotten - (I won't say which ones so that I don't inadvertently spoil the game for someone else, though) Fun quiz, though, I was really surprised that I got as many as I did. :)

I got half of them...some of them I protest though. Patsy Cline? Johnny Cash? Great musicians, but they are most definitely NOT rock! I agree, some of them you can get with just one word or phrase, but others are so hard. I almost didn't get a couple of them, simply because I couldn't put the lyrics together! Neat quiz, though. I didn't do as well as I thought I would.

I'm not quite done going through the quiz itself, but I've quickly found that the songs will be things I either recognize almost right off the bat - often due to some unique word or a couple of words that aren't likely to show up together except in a certain song, OR its a song I might not recognize if you gave a few lines in their proper order (without the title line, of course.) Its really kind of weird - I keep expecting when I give up and check one to see that it's one I should have been able to get, and so far they're all been songs I'm unfamiliar with. I'll have to try the rest later and see if the pattern continues :D Maybe I just like songs with weird words in 'em... hmmmm....
