Lyrically Speaking Special #2 - Man On The Moon

#1 Post by littlebeast13 » Wed Nov 17, 2021 9:55 am

Identify the following 120 songs from the provided lyrics, and then match them into 60 pairs based on a Tangredi, or a principle you must discover for yourself.

Alternate matches are very possible, however, I am (reasonably) confident there will be only one best solution to the game.

I had to add a few extraneous periods to some of the lyrics to prevent tripping the Bored's mysterious Internal Server Error code... so keep 'em there if you copy/paste the lyrics!

Good luck and have fun!


1. Hope you got your things together
Hope you are quite prepared to die

2. I got a cousin and she got a friend,
Who thought that her aunt knew a man who could help
At his apartment I knocked on the door,
He wouldn't come out until he got paid.

3. Too many men to please
She counts them all on her rosary
You know you might get. burned
So be careful where you touch

4. She told my baby we'd danced 'til three, then she looked at me
Then showed a photo my baby cried his eyes were like mine (oh, no)

5. Now baby, listen baby, don't ya treat me this way
'Cause I'll be back on my feet some day
(Don't care if you do 'cause it's understood)
(You ain't got no money, you just ain't no good)

6. And now as I stand
And stare into your eyes
I see safety there
I want surprises

7. Chapter one says to love her
You love her with all your heart
Chapter two you tell her you're
Never, never, never, never, never gonna part

8. Oh, Superman, where are you now?
When every thing's gone wrong somehow?

9. Midnight creeps so slowly into hearts
Of men who need more than they get
Daylight deals a bad hand
To a woman who has laid too many bets

10. Well, it's alright, even if they say you're wrong
Well, it's alright, sometimes you gotta be strong

11. And now the hands of time are standing still
Midnight angel, won't you say you will

12. Give me the ring on your finger
Let me see the lines on your hand
I can see me a tall dark stranger
Giving you what you hadn't planned

13. Bill
I love you so I always will

14. By the deal love has shown me.
Little child, did you know that there's a light,
And it's gonna shine right through your eyes.
What do you think that life is like?

15. Yeah there's a storm on the loose, sirens in my head
I'm wrapped up in silence, all circuits are dead
I cannot decode, my whole life spins into a frenzy

16. Seeking out the poorer quarters
Where the ragged people go
Looking for the places only they would know

17. Clean shirt, new shoes
And I don't know where I am goin' to

18. Oh your love thawed out
Yeah, your love thawed out
What was scared and cold

19. But don't give up,
Don't give up
You can be lucky in love

20. Look at the way we go out walking close together
I guess you could say I'm really beside myself
I still remember how it began
They produced a carbon copy. man

21. She is always in my corner
Right there when I want her
All these other girls are tempting
But I'm empty when you're gone

22. She'll only come out at night
The lean and hungry type
Nothing is new, I've seen her here before

23. ♪ ♫ ♪ ♫ ♪ ♫ ♪ ♫ ♪ ♫ ♪ ♫ ♪ ♫ ♪ ♫

Errrr.... looks like this song doesn't have any words. Let's try this...

This 1973 rock instrumental hit #1 on the US Hot 100 chart.

24. Turned up the music just as loud as it could go
Blew out the speakers in her daddy's radio

25. C'mon and hold me
Just like you told me
Then show me
What I want to know

26. Then I went through the jewelery and I found our wedding rings
I put mine on my finger and I gave yours a fling
Across this lonely bedroom of our recent broken home

27. You're talking it all sounds fair
You promise your love how much you care
I'm still listening and still unsure
Your actions are lacking, nothing is clear

28. Get home you're not alone
You just broke out of the danger zone
Be there to show your face
On another dreamy day

29. All around the world, statues crumble for me
Who knows how long I've loved you

30. Seldom stumble, never crumble
Try to tumble, life's a rumble
Feel the stinging I've been given
Never ending, unrelenting

31. I've wasted my nights
You turned out the lights
Now I'm paralyzed
Still stuck in that time, when we called it love
But even the sun sets in paradise

32. Spider Murphy played the tenor saxophone
Little Joe was blowin' on the slide trombone

33. The wild dogs cry out in the night
As they grow restless, longing for some solitary company

34. I thought that you knew it all along
Until you started getting me not right
Seems as if you heard a little late
But I warned you when
We both were at the starting gate

35. Her lipstick reflex got me wound
There were no defects to be found
Snapshot image froze without a sound

36. If you feel that it's real, I'm on trial
And I'm here, yeah, in your prison
Like a coin in your mint
I am dented and I'm spent with high treason

37. They wear platform shoes
On their nasty little feet

38. But I think that you're wild
When you flash that fragile smile

39. Am I hard enough?
Am I rough enough?
Am I rich enough?

40. I will turn your face to alabaster
When you'll find your servant is your master

41. Well I remember, I remember don't worry
How could I ever forget
It's the first time, the last time we ever met

42. A pair of shoes for Louie and a dress for Josephine
The label on the inside says they're made in Brooklyn

43. In your world I have no meaning
Though I'm trying hard to understand

44. You can look inside another world
You get to talk to a pretty girl

45. Remember dancin' at the high school hop?
The dress I ruined with the soda pop?
I didn't recognize the girl next door
With beat up sneakers and a ponytail

46. Honey, got no money
I'm all sixes and sevens and nines
Say now baby, I'm the rank outsider
You can be my partner in crime

47. Yeah, I was just thirteen, you might say I was a
Musical proverbial knee-high

48. He wore a big ol' turban wrapped around his head
And a scimitar by his side
And, every evenin', about midnight
He'd jump on his camel named Clyde, and ride

49. I'm just an average man with an average life
I work from nine to five, hey, hell, I pay the price

50. You missed two classes, and no homework
But your teacher preaches class like you're some kind of jerk

51. The impression that you sell
Passes in and out like a scent
But the long face that you see comes from living close to your fears

52. When the sun comes up on a sleepy little town
Down around San Antone

53. She tags along
And stands in the crowd
Looks up at the man that she turned down

54. They say we're crazy but I just don't care
And if they keep on talking
Still they get. nowhere

55. I spent the best part
Of my losing streak
In an Army Jeep
For what I can't recall

56. It's strange but it's true
I can't get over the way you love me like you do
But I have to be sure
When I walk out that door

57. I said, "Growin' up leads to growin' old and then to dyin'
Ooo, and dyin' to me don't sound like all that much fun"

58. Let your arms shelter me from all hurt and pain
Light my heart with your everlasting flame

59. In a town without a name, in a heavy downpour
Thought he passed his own shadow, by the backstage door

60. 'Cause like a princess she was laying there
Moonlight dancing off her hair

61. Well I'm no angel, now, I'll admit
I made a few bad moves I should regret
I hurt you once or so you said
Just one more chance is all you get

62. Gotta do what you can just to keep your love alive
Trying not to confuse it, with what you do to survive

63. Turn it down you say
But all I got to say to you is time and time again I say No!
No! No! No!

64. He hid in the forest, read books with great zeal
He loved Che Guevera, a revolutionary veal

65. ♪ ♫ ♪ ♫ ♪ ♫ ♪ ♫ ♪ ♫ ♪ ♫ ♪ ♫ ♪ ♫

Huh, again!?!? Isn't this a LYRICS game? Sigh...

This 1983 instrumental was a minor hit by a longtime jazz pianist experimenting in the budding genre of hip hop.

66. An atlas and a coffee cup, five pickers in an old Dodge truck
Headin' down to Houston for a show on Saturday night

67. I've given up, stop
I've given up, stop
I've given up, stop, on waiting any longer
I've given up, on this love getting stronger

68. Respectfully I say to thee
I'm aware that you're cheating
But no one makes me feel like you do

69. Every day I hear a different story
People saying that you're no good for me
Saw your lover with another and she's makin' a fool of you, oh

70. I know when to go out
Know when to stay in
Get things done

71. I've been alone with you inside my mind
And in my dreams I've kissed your lips a thousand times
I sometimes see you pass outside my door

72. There was nobody calling me up for favors
And no one's future to decide
You know I'd go back there tomorrow
But for the work I've taken on

73. Baby make your mind up give me what you got
Fix me with your lovin' shut the door and turn the lock
Hey go get the doctor, doctor came too late
Another night I feel alright my love for you can't wait

74. I've got a job waiting for my graduation
Fifty thou a year'll buy a lot of beer

75. Don't be cute, don't be funny now
It's later than you think
Oh what's the use, save your money now
It's hanging on the brink

76. So come on and give it to me any way you can
Any way you wanna do it, I'll treat you like a man

77. I ride my bike, I roller skate, don't drive no car
Don't go too fast but I go pretty far

78. Well you know you can't stop it
When they start to play
you gotta get out the way

79. Easy come, easy go, that's just how you live, oh
Take, take, take it all, but you never give

80. And a cheesy little amp
With a sign on the front said "Fender Champ"
And a second hand guitar
It was a Stratocaster with a whammy bar

81. Oh oh, listen to what I've gotta to say
Girl, I still love you
I'll always love you
Anyway, anyway, anyway

82. And when he drives me home
I feel safe at night
You'll call me on the phone
It goes ring
Ring
Ring
Ring-a-ring
Ring.

83. So many days you passed me by
See the tears standin' in my eyes
You didn't stop to make me feel better
By leavin' me a card or a letter

84. But I gotta think twice before I give my heart away
And I know all the games you play because I played them, too

85. And you can act real rude and totally removed
And I can act like an imbecile

86. My world was shattered, I was torn apart
Like someone took a knife and drove it deep in my heart

87. People say I should forget
There's plenty more, don't get. upset
People say she's doing fine
Mutual friends I see sometime

88. I'm the kinda G the little homies wanna be like
On my knees in the night, sayin' prayers in the streetlight

89. Every day's a holiday when your lips meet mine
The music's keepin' time with our love

90. The shoe is on the hand, it fits
There's really nothing much to it
Whistle through your teeth and spit

91. I can feel the soft silk of your blouse
And them soft thrills in our little fun house
Then the lights go out and it's just the three of us
You, me and all that stuff we're so scared of

92. And when she knows what
She wants from her time
And when she wakes up
And makes up her mind

93. Can't swim so I took a boat
To an island so remote
Only Johnny Depp has ever been to it before

94. If you get lonely on your daddy's farm
Just remember I don't live too far
And there's a red bridge that arcs the bay, yeah
You'll be at my place in less that a day

95. Happy birthday, happy birthday, baby
Oh, I love you so

96. I order all of my sandwiches with mayonnaise
I'm a whiz at Minesweeper, I can play for days

97. I'm just a toy, just a funny boy
That makes you laugh when you're blue
I'll be wonderful, do just what I'm told
I'll do anything for you

98. Take me to the streets where the bonfires burn
Take me in your arms and I'll fade away
When I hear you say what you got to say

99. Bonedigger, Bonedigger
Dogs in the moonlight
Far away in my well-lit door

100. She's got it
Yeah, baby, she's got it

101. The words we use are strong
They make reality
But now the music's on
Oh baby, dance with me

102. I have spoke with the tongue of angels
I have held the hand of a devil
It was warm in the night
I was cold as a stone

103. If there's something weird
And it don't look good
Who you gonna call

104. ♪ ♫ ♪ ♫ ♪ ♫ ♪ ♫ ♪ ♫ ♪ ♫ ♪ ♫ ♪ ♫

You've got to be kidding me..... another instrumental!?!? This game meister's not too bright....

This 1963 instrumental (and Top 10 hit) is probably more closely associated with its title animated character than any other character and song in the cartoon universe.

105. Wild things can't be tamed
Under my skin it's just the same
Waiting to be ignited
And there's no way I'll ever fight it

106. Girl don't lie, and tell me that you need me
Girl don't cry, and tell me nothing's wrong

107. But as the wind changed direction
And the temple band took fire
The crowd caught a whiff

108. I'm a man (a man) without conviction
I'm a man (a man) who doesn't know

109. Every little swallow, every chick-a-dee
Every little bird in the tall oak tree

110. Some of them want to use you
Some of them want to get used by you

111. We've got to judge the judge
Got to find the finds
We've got to scheme the schemes
Have to line the lines

112. Summer, it turns me upside down
Summer, summer, summer
It's like a merry-go-round

113. Ain't got no place to lay your head
Somebody came and took your bed

114. I am the modern man (secret secret I've got a secret)
Who hides behind a mask (secret secret I've got a secret)

115. I'm on the run but I ain't got no gun
See they want to be the star
So they fighting tribal war

116. Too far gone it's hard to stop
Baby you're my dream in motion and I won't give up
Teasing me with your fire
My finger's on the trigger
Your the one I desire

117. There's not a line that goes here
That rhymes with anything
(Anything)
(Anything)
Had a dream last night
But I forget what it was
(What it was)
(What it was)

118. Earth's crystal tears, the fall of snowflakes on your body
First time in years to drench your skin in lover's rosy stain

119. Say you don't know me or recognize my face
Say you don't care who goes to that kind of place

120. I've seen people turn their heads
And quickly look away
Like a newborn baby
It just happens everyday

First consolidation …

Identify the following 120 songs from the provided lyrics, and then match them into 60 pairs based on a Tangredi, or a principle you must discover for yourself.

Alternate matches are very possible, however, I am (reasonably) confident there will be only one best solution to the game.

I had to add a few extraneous periods to some of the lyrics to prevent tripping the Bored's mysterious Internal Server Error code... so keep 'em there if you copy/paste the lyrics!

Good luck and have fun!

The lone ? response in the consolidation contains the correct song.

Other than a few extraneous words in the titles that won't matter, everything else on the consolidation is good to go!

So we can remove the lyrics from the correct answers …

Identify the following 120 songs from the provided lyrics, and then match them into 60 pairs based on a Tangredi, or a principle you must discover for yourself.

Alternate matches are very possible, however, I am (reasonably) confident there will be only one best solution to the game.

I had to add a few extraneous periods to some of the lyrics to prevent tripping the Bored's mysterious Internal Server Error code... so keep 'em there if you copy/paste the lyrics!

A few songs jump out at me as being kind of odd for this list -

Dominick the Donkey
I Think I'm a Clone Now
Pink Panther Theme
Joe's Garage

I'm thinking there might be something about a word in the title rather than anything to do with the artist. For Diminick for example, if there was some kind of match for Lou Monte, there are many Lous that could be used and I am sure other Montes. I think there is a distinctive word in the title that matches up elsewhere.

Donkey
Clone
Panther (could have used many pink songs that actually have lyrics)
Garage

Just spitballing ideas.

Looking good! The dual answer one still has the correct song in it... and I'll even add that all of Esto's answers are correct as well.

The lone ? response in the consolidation contains the correct song.

Other than a few extraneous words in the titles that won't matter, everything else on the consolidation is good to go!

lb13
So we can remove the lyrics from the correct answers …

Identify the following 120 songs from the provided lyrics, and then match them into 60 pairs based on a Tangredi, or a principle you must discover for yourself.

Alternate matches are very possible, however, I am (reasonably) confident there will be only one best solution to the game.

I had to add a few extraneous periods to some of the lyrics to prevent tripping the Bored's mysterious Internal Server Error code... so keep 'em there if you copy/paste the lyrics!

Good luck and have fun!
