* Jim Croce is indeed one of the artists that did this song.
1. This is a story about Billy Joe and Bobbie Sue
Two young lovers with nothin' better to do
Than sit around the house, get high, and watch the tube
And here is what happened when they decided to cut loose
2. Now look at them yo-yo's that's the way you do it
You play the guitar on the MTV
That ain't workin' that's the way you do it
3. I work all night, I work all day,
to pay the bills I have to pay
Ain't it sad
And still there never seems to be
a single penny left for me
That's too bad
In my dreams I have a plan
If I got me a wealthy man
I wouldn't have to work at all,
I'd fool around and have a ball
Number 2 is Money for Nothing by Dire Straights I guess the them is money
Take the Money and Run by the Steve Miller Band.
And I actually knew song 3 but didn't get it by the lyrics. Man...I'm getting killed on points while at work.
*** for song title, artist and theme.
** for song title and artist
Well that's the disadvantage to having a job. The advantage is the steady paycheck.
Here's the chorus, it should make it easy. The triple dots replace lines which are the title of the song or words which are part of the title.
Must be funny
In the rich man's world
In the rich man's world
All the things I could do
If I had a little ...
It's a rich man's world
Can I guess it now? I didn't get it from the first verse, but I surely would've gotten it from the chorus. I know I cheated, but I would have gotten it from this.
Go ahead. By now the people who are interested in trying have had a fair chance to guess it.
Here's a bonus one if anyone is interested
Tailored suits, chauffered cars
Fine hotels and big cigars
Up for grabs, up for a price
Where the red hot girls keep on dancing through the night
The claim is on you
The sights are on me
So what do you do
Hey little girl, you want it all
The furs, the diamonds, the painting on the wall
Since the title is repeated, do I get repeating points?
Money Money Money by Abba.
Since I'll be at work and will likely miss out on a round or 2, let me try to scam some more extra credit here. This song is currently being featured on Broadway in the show Mamma Mia, a play based on the music of Abba. Interesting concept, no? From what I hear, it's actually doing quite well on Broadway.
Money Talks by AC/DC.
I even thought about using the Floyd song as another bonus, but that'd probably be too easy.
*** for song title, artist and additional information.
* Spider-Fett for coming up with another song for the theme
** kbomb for getting the song title and artists for the Spider-Fett's addition to the category.
Here's the new set folks, you should recognize all the groups even if you don't recognize the song:
1. Lying beside you, here in the dark
Feeling your heartbeat with mine
Softly you whisper, you're so sincere
How could our love be so blind
We sailed on together
We drifted apart
And here you are, by my side
2. All day long I hear my telephone ring
Friends calling giving their advice
From the boy I love
I should break away
'Cause heartaches he'll bring one day
3. You want commitment
Take a look into these eyes
They burn with a fire,
Just for you now
Until the end of time
I would do anything
I'd beg, I'd steal, I'd die
they are all by rolf harris
I didn't know any of these. I won't even guess the theme because I had to cheat to even find that. However, I will include another song with the same theme.
I keep looking for something I can't get
Broken hearts lie all around me,
and I don't see an easy way out of this
Her diary, it sits on the bedside table
The curtains are closed, the cat's in the cradle
Who would've thought that a boy like me could come to this.
These songs are by 3 different artists/groups.
dang... well considering the only thing that keeps me alive is my enfactuation with rolf harris (he did create time you know?) then i guess the planet is pretty stupid for doing anything that doesnt involve him in some way! GOOD NIGHT TO YOU SIR!
Good! That should mean he'll stop harrising the game. Strange that he can't read a sig line and know the difference between a Lady and a Man.
1. So now I come to you with _._._._ - _._._._
Nothing to hide, believe what I say
So here I am, with _._._._ - _._._._
Hoping you'll see what your love means to me
_._._._ - _._._._
2. I lost him once through friends advice
But it's not gonna happen twice
'Cause all advice ever's gotten me
Was many long and sleepless nights
3. Baby I want you like the roses
Want the rain
You know I need you
Like a poet needs the pain
I would give anything
My blood my love my life
If you were _._ - _._._._._ - _._._._ tonight
Red, since I'm going to work (and you usually go through a few games while I'm gone), I was going to PM you the title and artist of the song I'd posted, since you seem to give out all the points, anyway. You seem to have PMs and email disabled. Do you know the song, in case anyone guesses?
Whoops didn't realize you'ld added another song to the original poll. My apologies. Don't recognize it off hand. Do you have time for another verse/chorus before work?
Here's verse 2:
Is there any just cause for feeling like this
On the surface I'm a name on a list
I try to be discreet, but then blow it again.
I've lost and found, it's my final mistake.
She's loving by proxy, no give and all take
'Cause I've been thrilled to fantasy one too many times.
Ahhh it's song 4 of the new theme because you didn't know the others. Yes I recognize it. Weren't they a one hit wonder? *tapping while trying to figure out if they had other hits*
