Lyrics Test 6 - The Oldies Edition!

Yes, its another edition of one person's favorite blogging game (please don't be shy. If you're wrong, then all I'll do is ridicule you ;). Nah, it's a fun time), the Lyrics Test! 20 Songs are handpicked by me and these are pretty well-known, as far as I know.

This time also has a theme. All of these you should hear on an Oldies radio station. One or two may also show up on a classic rock station, but they are all oldies nonetheless. It was a blast listening to these songs again! One other note, none of the artists are repeated. That's right, each one is only used once. Best wishes!

18) I feel like this is the beginning, though I've loved you for a million years, and if I thought our love was ending, I'd find myself drowning in my own tears. - Stevie Wonder - You Are the Sunshine of my Life

19) Why do all the boys just pass you by? Could it be you just don't try or is it the clothes you wear? You're always window shopping but never stopping to buy, so shed those dowdy feathers and fly - a little bit... - The Seekers - Georgy Girl


1) I met him in a cell in New Orleans. I was down and out. He looked of me to be the eyes of age as the smoke ran out. - Mr. Bojangles - Nitty Gritty Dirt Band

14) I pushed her away, I walked to the door, I fell to the floor, I got down on my knees. Then I looked at her and she at me. - Lola - The Kinks

16) You're gonna be knowing the loneliest kind of lonely. It may be rough goin', just to do your thing's the hardest thing to do. - Make Your Own Kind of Music - The Mamas and the Papas

17) Buddy you're an old man poor man pleadin' with your eyes gonna make you some peace some day. - We Will Rock You - Queen

20) I guess I should've kept my mouth shut when I started to brag about my car. But I can't back down now because I pushed the other guys too far... - Don't Worry Baby - The Beach Boys

I'm going to post both artists and hints in a day or so, then answers the day after. I will do what I can to keep it near the top on my Facebook page. Cheers!
