Ice King, Adventure Time

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



Guessed


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

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.

48 Questions With Totally Serious Answers

People keep tagging me on Facebook, and they know I usually respond to these things, even though they are all the same (see: every spoof I have done on "surveys"). Anyways, instead of continuing my personal research on serial killers, let's answer some generic questions!

48 Q's... I did it, now it's your turn!

Here are the rules - post this list on your profile (in Notes) replacing my answers with yours.

Tag 25 people to do the same thing.

If I tagged YOU, it's because I want to know more about YOU!

1. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE?
My dad's middle name methinks.

2. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED?
Yesterday, the cold was getting to my eyes. Oh, you mean sad crying. In that case, I think about a year ago. Its not a common outlet for me.

Cheese

5. DO YOU HAVE KIDS?
You make them sound like an STD. Do YOU have....*scary voice* KIDS?

6. IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON, WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU?
I am another person. See, its called schitzophrenia. I am my own best friend, and my own worst enemy. Wait. That was the premise of a cancelled tv show.

7. DO YOU USE SARCASM?
Never! Definately no. Nopers. Nope nope nope. Nada. No. Nuh uh. Noooooooooo.

No, but I still have that annoying thing they call a pancreas.

I think you stand in line for those, right?

Golden Grahams.

11. DO YOU UNTIE YOUR SHOES WHEN YOU TAKE THEM OFF?

Norman.

18. DO YOU WANT EVERYONE TO COMPLETE THIS LIST?
If you do, then I will take note, because you will fill this out instead of talking to me :(.

"Here's your paycheck. Let's make out. Sit there while I do everything."

43. ROLLING STONES OR BEATLES?
A better question would be, "What is your favorite band?". Notice that I didn't use the "All caps" button. Anyways, I would say I have sold my soul to the Beatles.

Washington DC

45. DO YOU HAVE A SPECIAL TALENT?
I can make a pretty mean bottle of premade powerade.

The government's. I'm sure they're tracking this.

48. HOW DID YOU MEET YOUR SPOUSE/SIGNIFICANT OTHER?

If you didn't know this stuff about me yet, then you're lame. End of story.
