My kind of meme

Shelly recently got the movie line meme started and, while fun, I totally sucked (as expected). Movies aren't really my thing-I like going to the movie theater, Tug likes watching them at home, neither of us wins. Music, on the other hand, I love. These aren't necessarily my favorite songs but I do like them and they should all be popular enough to know-I'll even throw a country song in...
1. Darkness imprisoning me
all that I see
 absolute horror

2. Though you haven't made your mind up yet
But I would never do you wrong
I've known it from the moment that we met
There's no doubt in my mind where you belong
I'd go hungry, I'd go black and blue
I'd go crawling down the avenue
There ain't nothing that I wouldn't do

3. Winters cold spring erases
And the calm away by the storm is chasing
Everything good needs replacing
Look up, look down, all around  

4.  {highly appropriate to sing on 11/4 should BO win}
   Six o'clock-TV hour. Don't get caught in foreign towers.
Slash and burn, return, listen to yourself churn.

5. Oh let the sun beat down upon my face, stars to fill my dream
I am a traveler of both time and space, to be where I have been

6.  Since you've gone I've been lost without a trace
I dream at night I can only see your face
I look around but it's you I can't replace
I feel so cold and I long for your embrace

7. But nothings greater than the rush that comes with your embrace
And in this world of loneliness I see your face
Yet everyone around me thinks that I'm going crazy
Maybe, maybe

8. Did you write the book of love
And do you have faith in God above
If the Bible tells you so?

9. It was kind of cold that night
She stood alone on her balcony
She could hear the cars roll by
Out on 441 
Like waves crashing on the beach

10. We were born before the wind
Also younger than the sun

And a kind of obscure one that I think at least one of you will know:
11. I leave you with your misery
A friend that won't betray
I pull you from your tower
I take away your pain
And show you all the beauty you possess
If you'd only let yourself believe that 
We are born, innocent

Bonus (renee, if you remember this song you cant guess ;))

12. Like the ones from Navarone last night on Channel 21
It's a long way back to El Paso.

And I will tag
cuz I am interested in what kind of music you like, and I want a trivia game I might have a shot at getting right!

15 people are laughing with me:

Laura The Crazy Mama said...

This is too hard to cheat. Okay, so I only recognize a few and I'll explain why (because I need to be a pain in your rear):
1. metallica-because I had to learn all the lyrics to all the major metallica songs in order to get street cred in the heavy metal set in high school-big hair rocks
2.?
3.?
4. end of the world, REM-because of Tommy Boy, of course.
5. ?
6. The Police but I can't figure out for the life of me what the dang song is called, but I can hear it in my head.
7. You have a thing for the lyric "embrace" I guess but I don't know this one
8. American Pie-know the long version by heart. I was bored one time when I was babysitting so I took a tape of this and played it section by section and wrote the whole thing down until I had it memorized. I'm sick like that.
9. ?
10. Into the Mystic by Van Morrison-Benny and Joon or some movie like that, for some reason I liked that song so I had to find out what it was called and who sung it a long time ago.
11. ??
12 ???
I'm scared to do this one because it will be revealed that the only lyrics that I really know are all of the rock ballads of the 60's, 70's, and 80's as featured on an infomercial for Time/Life starring Kevin Cronin who I want to just pinch his cheeks cause he's the cutest darn ex-rocker I ever done seen.
