2 Word Lyric Game [More:]A nice even dozen for you. I feel like this is a pretty easy batch (mostly 80s-90s) but they always seem easy from this end. Hopefully nothing too obscure in any event. There have been a lot of lyrics posts lately and I haven't checked all of them, so apologies if I'm duplicating anything that's been up recently.

1. anemic royalty
2. children behave
3. face north
4. gold crocodiles
5. insulated border
6. jimmy sinner
7. liar's chair
8. melodramatic fools
9. practicing politics
10. puddles gather
11. raining icepicks
12. super scurry
Man. I've got nothing.

3. REM - STand
5. RUSH - Subdivisions

I'll add (an easy) one of my own:

A. Monstertruck force

2. "I Think We're Alone Now" by Tommy James (and later Tiffany if you're going for the 80's theme).

8. Off of Green Day's Dookie, but I can't remember the actual song.

9. "Piano Man" by Billy Joel.

I just rattled off the the list to my wife and shoe got the same three I did.

7. 'Hurt,' written by Trent Reznor, but with a sort of 'All Along The Watchtower' thing going with Johnny Cash.

6 Ozzy Osbourne - Miracle Man
11 Johnny Cash - Rusty Cage

I know "puddles gather" too, but it's my least favorite song of all time (I've heard so many damn times that I know all the lyrics, it'll be playing nonstop for me in hell), so I'm not gonna say.

Heh. I sent this to a friend and said "You're actually fortunate if you've forgotten about #10..." which, thanks to Hugh's abstention, is the only one remaining.

I must have missed it when Johnny Cash covered every song in existence. It seems really weird that I would pick two songs he covered without realizing.

Oh, no shit, that's a Soundgarden song originally, that's right; I recognize the lyrics only because Johnny Cash is such a master enunciator and Unchained (1996) happens to be on my mp3 stack this month.

Yeah and that BM song, I'm glad I have good music around to kill that earworm. Sometimes I wonder if the shittiness was the whole point. Just goes to show you how otherwise reasonable listeners can be snowed by a little girl in a cute bumblebee suit.

It popped up on my cousin's Zune while we were out bopping around over Thanksgiving, and I have no explanation for what it was doing there, but that's the only reason it was on my mind.
