Lyrics Test 5 - The Expanded Experience

This lyrics test doesn't have a theme, and hopefully has a nice mix of "obvious" and "what the...". Again, the rules are simple, guess the title and/or artist that belong to the song lyrics below, and please refrain from using a search engine like dogpile or hotbot. Good luck.

Oh yeah, there may be some repeats from previous installments, and there may also be some artists who appear more than once.

Edit: I placed the correctly guessed ones below inder the heading "Guessed", so that way you know which ones are still game!

Edit the 2nd: Hints are now added. Again try?

Not Guessed

1) "The love, the dream, the echoes of long ago; you needed the world to know..." (Hint: This was also a movie, sung by a major cast member of Grease). - Xanadu, Olinia Newton-John

3) "(You're only sixteen, but you're my teenage queen.) You're the prettiest, loveliest, girl I've ever seen." Sixteen Candles - The Platters

4) "Come to me tonight. I've taken everything in sight, except for the strings of my kite." (Hint: A spoof of sorts of the Beatles's Song, "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds") - Jusdy in Disguise, John Fred and his Playboy Band

6) "Bus driver, please look for me 'cause I couldn't bear to see what I might see..."(Was showcased in an episode of Dinosaurs. Sung by the same people who brought you "Knock Three Times") - Tie a Yellow Ribbon 'Round the Old Oak Tree, Tony Orlando and Dawn

7) "How do you think he does it? (I don't know) What makes him so good? He ain't got no distractions, Can't hear those buzzers and bells, (don't see no lights a flashin', plays by sense of smell...)"(Pretty popular rock opera album) - Pinball Wizard, The Who

10) "Begone with you you shod and shady senators. Give out the good leave out the bad evil cries. I challenge the mighty titan and his troubadours."(Speaking of rock operas, this group did a fair amount of them, and yes, they have more than one song on this test.) - Seven Seas of Rhye, Queen

14) "The diplomatic corps has been analyzed and criticized by NBC and CBS, senators and congressmen are so concerned they can't recess." (As sung by Stachmo, but the musicians aren't from his band. Same group that did such classics like "Take Five" and "Blue Rondo a la Turk"). - The Real Ambassador, Dave Brubeck

15) "We got a lot of little teenage blue-eyed groupies who do anything we say. We got a genuine Indian guru, he's teachin' us a better way (we got all the friends that money can buy so we never have to be alone, and we keep gettin' richer but we can't get our picture on *song title here*)" - Cover of the Rolling Stone, Dr. Teeth and the Medicine Men.

17) "Back in school again, Maxwell plays the fool again; teacher gets annoyed. Wishing to avoid an unpleasnat scene (she tells Max to stay when the class has gone away so he waits behind, writing *giggle?* fifty times "I must not be so")" - Maxwell's Silver Hammer, The Beatles

20) "It's such a jollification as a matter of fact, so 'tres charmant' my dear." (Has a ragtimey feel to it, uses words like "jollification", "commendable", "rendevous", "miseur", "fashionable", "seaside", and "reminiscing". Two of them will give you your title.) - Seaside Rendevous, Queen


2) "Nothing really matters to me.......anyway the wind blows." Bohemian Rhapsody, Queen

5) "What happend to the girl I used to know, you let your mind out somewhere down the road." Don't Bring Me Down - E.L.O.

8) "Take these sunken eyes and learn to see. All your life you were only waiting for this moment to be free." Blackbird - Beatles

9) "People walk in their delusion wading through despair. We must come to stand as one and take the cross they bare." Blind Man - Black Stone Cherry

11) "And I know, yes I know that it's plain to see we're so in love when we're together..." You're the Inspiration - Chicago

12) "I get knocked down, but I get up again. You're never going to keep me down." Tubthumping - Cumbawamba

13) "I said yep what a concept I could use a little fuel myself and we could all use a little change." All Star - Smash Mouth

16) "We can beat around the bushes; we can get down to the bone. We can leave it in the parkin lot..." Heartache Tonight - The Eagles

18) "Einstein, James Dean, Brooklyn's got a winning team, Davy Crockett, Peter Pan, Elvis Presley, Disneyland" We Didn't Start the Fire - Billy Joel

19) "I get home, I kiss my mom and she fixes me a snack. I head down to my basement bedroom and fire up my Mac." Online - Brad Paisley

That's it. Remember, some groups were used more than once and some songs might be from a previous installment. Hints will be up in a day or two, then the artists, then the answers about mid-week or so. Good luck, as always.

    One last Twet for the day. I took off the last layer of pants and underwear and put my jogging shorts on for sleepy time. Night everyone!

    @BobMarley Your songs sound like a wailing hippie that is being killed by a grumbling acid tripper.
