|07:18 pm - The Distributed Easy Lyrics Quiz: part two|
I have picked up a summer cold. Yhis is annoying, but I have had such a fortunate run of good health (not sure, but maybe 18 months since my last one) that I am surely overdue. It doesn't feel like a horribly bad one; a nasty sore throat, but not so bad that Lockets and, supposedly, Ultra Chloraseptic cannot mostly take care of it, and a sniffly, slightly runny nose. Fingers crossed for being better before I return to work on Monday, oddly enough, after popping into work for an afternoon yesterday as cover for someone who has picked up a different stomach bug that's going around. All warm thoughts to those of you who have to cope with far worse on a daily basis, of course.
Within the cut-tag below are the lyrics for the Distributed Easy Lyrics Quiz. Please identify as many as possible and, for the last question, suggest which is your favourite. Please don't nominate your own lyric as your favourite. You are most welcome to enter even if you didn't submit a lyric. You don't need to name the artist because everyone has covered everything; you are expected not to use search engines or other external assistance, on your honour. If you have access to both, I'd prefer to receive answers on Dreamwidth, but answers on LiveJournal are welcome, or by e-mail at a pinch. One entry per person, please, not per account. Answers and scoring will, hopefully, be revealed on Tuesday or Wednesday.
that lightning storm, that tidal wave, this avalanche, I'm not afraid
Nobody's gonna go to school today/she's gonna make them stay at home
"He's a liar and I'm not sure about you."
Waiting for the moon to come and light me up inside // I am waiting for the telephone to tell me I'm alive
But then she went to Cleveland with some guy named Leland that she met at the bank.
I was born to love her / And I will never be free / You'll always be a part of me
Faith has been broken, tears must be cried, Lets do some living after we die,
Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? Caught in a landslide. No escape from reality.
The image has gone, only you and I, it mean's nothing to meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
Let's play Twister, let's play Risk.
It took time to understand the man
He'll be the man who's already working, spreading a memory all through the sky
Why do birds suddenly appear / Every time you are near
Ever since I can remember you've been hanging round this joint
You better hang on tooth and nail
Said she, "Able am I, son."
You’ve got your career, spent the best part of last year apart.
guardian angels sang this strain
Last night I dreamt of San Pedro, Just like I'd never gone, I knew the song.
When I find myself in times of trouble, Mother Mary comes to me
Time goes by so slowly / And time can do so much
I'm not gonna spend my life being a color
And finally: which lyric is your favourite of the above, other than your own?
