20 September 2013

It's a lyrics challenge for Friday! Song lyrics within. I will be posting this then unavailable until 4pm or so... will they all be guessed by then?[More:]

1. Have we become a habit? Do we distort the facts?

2. All we care about is talking

3. Grow my hair I am Jim Morrison

4. I raise my flags, don my clothes. It's a revolution I suppose

5. Touch my world with your fingertips

6. I run the marathon to the very last mile

7. If I could dig a grave then I'd climb underground for good

8. I am a patient boy

9. Every nest needs a little bird

10. I want to dive into your ocean

Wow, you're list is killing me today! I recognize almost ZERO! Except...I think #10 is the Eurythmics? Here Comes the Rain Again?

#3 is the Radiohead song "Everyone Can Play Guitar", which I can never decide if it is mocking teenage earnestness or is nostalgic for it (or both).

8 is Fugazi - Waiting Room.

6 is something that is almost certainly going to bother me until I google it...ack.

Dammit. Remembered the artist for six, but can't think of the track. Off to the googles, I guess...

I repeated #6 over and over and felt familiar like it was just about to come to me, but could not figure out what it was. Finally gave up and Googled it....and now I'm kicking myself for not knowing it.
