Musical Stuff

We're gonna play name that tune! I pick a verse from 5 songs I truly love. Tomorrow I post the song title and name of the artist. I really do love these songs.

Numero Uno

"Could we be much closer if we tried
We could stay at home and stare Into each other's eyes
Maybe we could last an hour
Maybe then we'd see right through
Always something breaking us in two"


"Hands, don't let her go, 'cause then the midnight icy winds will blow
Eyes, give every drop, to send a wave that's sure to make her stop
Arms, just let her know, no one fills the place she used to grow
Smile, don't leave me now, 'cos you're the reason she's here anyhow
Words, be gentle when you speak into her heart
'Cos if it breaks, she may not come again"

Tree (using Jamaican Accent)

"Hey baby, what'cha know good
I'm just gettin' back, but you knew I would
War is hell, when will it end,
When will people start gettin' together again
Are things really gettin' better, like the newspaper said
What else is new my friend, besides what I read
Can't find no work, can't find no job my friend
Money is tighter than it's ever been"

Fo' (I am down south gotdammitt)

Well I'm extremely cheap
I snore when I go to sleep
The little bit of nothin have leftI'm strugglin trying to keep
Your friends may all agree
You could name a million things I'll never be
If you feel like flyin feel free You know that you could do better than me
I'm a simple man I'm doing everything I can
When God sent you my wayIt was the moment my life began
You stood by me through the storm
Well I was hopin you'd have my hand
I wish I understood how you were strong enough to undestand
Cuz see no one is crazy enough to love me but you.

Five (,Five, Five, Five - sing a song of five....)

"Girl I know this might seem strange
But let me know if I'm out of order
For stepping to you this way
See I've been watching you for a while
And I just gotta let you know
That I'm really feeling your style
Cause I have to know your name
And leave you with my number
And I hope that you would call me someday
If you want you can give me yours too
And if you don't I ain't mad at'cha
We can still be cool cause..."

Hint Section: (not in any particular order)
He forgot the lyrics at a pretty big gig.
There's a Jackson song listed.
Really cool doggie from a movie.
Opposite of Hi-C.
He was Marvelous!

Jali, you're an excellent networker. I literally got lost visiting some of your posters' sites.

Send some of them my way, they need a little steak sometimes. All of those sweets are going to ruin them.

Chanakin said...

I'm terrible with lyrics. Then I saw the answers.

And I call myself a musician.


Winters said...

Zero points for me there.

Give us some easy ones, Jali!

Girl, why you make me think on a Wednesday? I am with winters.... big fat 0.

Soooo close - wrong song title for Mr. Green and check out the "What's Going On" masterpiece album for the one that drew a blank. I really love that you know "Waiting" by Toto and "Breaking Us in Two" by Joe Jackson. I thought an old head would get those.

Gotta go to your page and check out your music choices.

Send them some love,they'll come by for the steak.

I didn't know about your musical talent. What do you do/play?

I love these quizzes - I'll do an easier one. How are you?

What? You left your thinking cap at home? Please go get it - more puzzle crap to follow...

MARVIN GAYE. Now you're talking. He-Was-The-Best. Words fail. I'm going to put some of his music on right now. It's always in one of the slots, ready to go, like speed dialing.

jali said...

Marvin was the first man I ever loved.

You have Good Taste. I'd like them to play Sexual Healing at my funeral, along with Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring by Bach, and Lulu's Back in Town by Ellis and Branford Marsalis. Flip has been given his directions about this many times already.
