Procrastinating the Inevitable...

A Quiz...

By thePatrick

So, a friend of mine from Calgary put this up on their Facebook, and I thought it was worth a try. Here's the deal. I have put my itunes on shuffle. I will write the first two lines of each of the first 25 songs, regardless of embarrassment level. I will check off each song as someone guesses correctly. Yes, it is considered cheating if you use a search engine. I may not know, but someone, somewhere will. Ready? GO!

X) Drain tarnished blood form bones, Let those poisons dry up.
Until it Kills - Midtown

X) Here in your bedroom I can turn my head off, the less that I feel is the less that I'm on top.
Here In Your Bedroom - Goldfinger

X) I can't stand it, I know you planned it, I'm a set it straight, this Watergate.
Sabotage - The Beastie Boys

X) Gravity plays favorites, I know it 'cause I saw.
Gravity - The Dresden Dolls

5) We were just a plain old hillbilly band with a plain old country style, We never played the kind of songs that would drive anybody wild.

6) He was an artist and a writer and a poet and a friend, In a man's life, he will take a fall but how low he goes that just depends.

7) I'm gonna love you like no one's loved you, come rain or come shine.
Come Rain of Come Shine - Etta James/Frank Sinatra/Ray Charles (I'd have allowed either one)

9) Piece by piece and bit by bit, I will break this down for you real slow.

10) Hey tired man I see you walk alone, The wrinkles on your face a map of all your pain.

11) Is everything a baited hook, and are there locks on our doors?

12) You got my pride hangin' outta my bed, You messin' with my life so I brought my lead

XX) Life life, live life like you're gonna die, because you're gonna.
You'll Have Time - William Shatner

14) Why can't we let our mouths devour each other? Why can't we turn those miles into inches, letters into breath, years into seconds?

15) This is the closest to this friend that I've been, I hope you find it on greener ground and bluer skies.

XX) Are you such a dreamer, to put the world to rights?
2+2=5 - Radiohead

XX) Do you remember a time when this city was a great place for architects and debutantes?
Black History Month - Death From Above 1979

18) Gib mir nur fünf Minuten, Gleich mir nicht okay.

19) Lately I'm alright, and lately I'm not scared.

XX) The record goes from blue to gold, So thank you for all your help.
Backstabber - The Dresden Dolls

21) Shut down, falling over once again, Dropped out, hand extended for a friend

XX) I took her out, it was a Friday night, I woke alone to get the feeling right.
What's My Age Again? - Blink 182

XX) Your boyfriend, he likes you but does he really try, Can he do what I do should you just say goodbye?
Your Girlfriends Hate Me - Reggie and the Full Effect

24) The lights go down outside, before our cars collide, And so we sillouette ourselves for these shades of fire.

25) Don't forget to kiss me, If you're really going to leave.

Good luck, and feel free to do the same thing on your blog.


I am not even going to try. You and Norte listen to bands that I've never heard which is a double edge sword for me. Some are good bands that I am missing out on and some bands I don't care for. Good luck (Norte)!

The only one I know for sure is #22 What's My Age Again - Blink 182.

I agree with Co-G regarding the rest. You guys listen to random, obscure stuff... But I like it...

Patrick, the only one I know is #3, The Beastie Boys, Sabotage. Sorry I am not very good at this game.

OOH! I know some of these!!!

#3 StamKeve already got...well done
#4 Gravity by The Dresden Dolls
#13 You'll Have Time by William Shatner
#16 2+2=5 by Radiohead
#17 Black History Month by Death From Above 1979
#20 Backstabber by The Dresden Dolls
#22 Chontel already got...I'll let her have it :)
#23 Your Girlfriends Hate Me by Reggie And The Full Effect

I recognize some of the others...but not well enough I'm afraid.

Oh, and expect one of these on mine in the hear future!

I might know one or two...ok...three.

#1 Midtown-Until it Kills
#2 Goldfinger-Here in your Bedroom
#7 Etta James-Come Rain or Come Shine

...just a guess

#7 BB King has a version too!

#8 Bellies Are Full - Portugal. The Man

Okay Patrick I may have some here...

#11) Southern Gal, (or Girl? I can't remember) but "Incubus sings" it

#14) I believe that is the "Blood Brothers" but I have no idea what the name of the song is.

#19) That is for sure Suspension - By "MAE"

and #24) is The Other Side of a Crash - by the forever amazing band "Thursday"

Let me know how I score!
