I know, I know, this is supposed to be about super-heros and such, but if we can have Bush threads, I thought this wouldn't be too bad.

Here's how it'll work, I'll give you one verse from 3 different songs with a common theme (usually the same word in the title) and you try to guess what it is.

1. ...
It's hard
...
You know it's hard
Everybody wants her
Everybody loves her
Everybody wants to take your baby home

2. ..., walkin' down the street
... the kind I like to meet
... I don't believe you, you're not the truth
No one could look as good as you---mercy

3. ... , stay away from me
... , mama let me be
Don't come a hangin' around my door
I don't wanna see your face no more
I got more important things to do
Than spend my time growin' old with you
Now ... , I said stay away
... , listen what I say-ay-ay-ay-ay-ay
 
** truthteller

That still leaves:

1. ...
You watch your friends
...
It never ends
You know that it's crazy
You want to trust her
Then somebody hangs up when you answer the phone
..
You go it alone
 
Would that be

When your in love with a beautiful woman

by Dr. Hook
 
** Spider-Fett thanks for finishing that up and a bonus star for naming the artist.

1. I still down know what I was waiting for
And my time was running wild
A million dead-end streets
Every time I thought I'd got it made
It seems the taste was not so sweet
So I turned myself to face me
But I've never caught a glimpse
Of how the others must see the faker
I'm much too fast to take that test

2. Ten years living in a paperbag
Feedback baby he's a flipped out cat
He's a platinum canary drinkin' falstaff beer
Mercedes rule and a rented lear
Bottom feeder insincere
Prophet lo fi pioneer
Sell the house and go to school
Get a young girlfriend daddy's jewel

3. Some dreams are in the night time
And some seem like yesterday
But leaves turn brown and fade
Ships sail away
You long to say a thousand words
But ...

I only know what these 2 were because I cheated. I'll let someone who actually knows answer. Do I get partial credit for spotting the Change theme, though?

I rule. Well, no I don't, but at least I know (some) music. I actually owned the album that the 3rd one was on back in the 80s, but sold it many years ago. If I had only kept it, I might have...well, known that answer. :(
 
2. God's little gift is on the rag
Poster girl posing in a fashion mag
Canine feline Jekyll and Hyde?
Wear your fake fur on the inside
Queen of south beach, aging blues
Dinners at six, wear your cement shoes
I thought you were singing your heart out to me
Your lips were syncing and now I see

3.It feels like it's forever
No reason for emptiness
But time just runs away
No more day by day
You dream again it seems in vain

I was going to give hints by posting non-obvious pictures of the bands, but when you try to go a Google image search of the last band's name (without the accent), you come up with all sorts of strange images, none of which have anything to do with the band.

Was this the one you were having difficulty with?
 
Oh it's um....oh wait I still have no clue :confused:

No. I didn't have a problem with any one picture. There were just a lot of people exposing things and weird situations. Like this, for example:
[img]http://www.errolgraphics.com/expose.jpg
Given the search, I can understand that, though. There are a few, though, where I couldn't make a connection to "expose." Take these, for example:

1.-
whenever I am alone with you
it makes me feel like I am young again
whenever I am alone with you
it makes me feel like I am whole again


2.-
I love you, I'm not coming back *****

I think I should say something

I can't see, I can't feel anything, I can't I can't

Wash my face, cut out my teeth and tell me to grin
MY GUMS ARE BLEEDING! MY GUMS ARE BLEEDING!

I hate you, I hate you


3.-
When you smile I see stars in the sky
When you smile I see sunrise
And I know you've been thinking of me
And I know how you want it to be



if u can guess the artists who sing the last two songs, I will admire your knowledge

the first one is easy

hare is a hint, the 3 songs have the same name ;)
 
This thread died quickly. I guess people aren't into music anymore. :(

Get your scrabble tiles out to solve these. The dash separates words the dots separate letters.

I was wondering if this thread would come back. :)

Granted, I cheated and looked up the last one, but I've had a couple of days to forget. Can I just say what it is?

Yup.
1. Changes - David Bowie
2. A Change Will Do You Good - Sheryl Crow

That leaves (filling in the A's):
