Question

So this is an awesome game I've been playing on another forum. It's simple, really...

Look at the lyric below. See how it ends with a word in italics? Think of a lyric from another song that has that word in it. Now write it in the next post, making sure to say what it is and who it is by, and to bold the word.

Now, the next person will have to find a lyric that contains the last word of your lyric! See how it could go on forever? Let's start.

Jonathan Coulton - First of May

I woke up this morning

I had a scone and a large house blend

And then a little conversation with my squirrel and chipmunk friends

I said I'm sick and tired of winter

And I wish that it was spring

And then a little fellow named Robin Redbreast

Began to sing

And he sang

Ooh ooh child, what'd you think the cold winter's gonna last forever?

Ooh ooh child, now's the time for all the people to get together

Outside

Outside

The Midway State - Never Again

Outside, it's snowing, it's odd for this time of year,

Your light through the darkness,

Getting smaller oh I fear,

Love love pulled us down in the gutter,

Can you see us getting out oh i wonder,

It's a long long lonely fight down inside me,

Can I get you to bring back light or is this never again

Iron Maiden - Dream of Mirrors

Have you ever felt the future is the past, but you don't know how...?

A reflected dream of a captured time, is it really now, is it really happening?

Don't know why I feel this way, have I dreamt this time, this place?

Something vivid comes again into my mind

And I think I've seen your face, seen this room, been in this place

Something vivid comes again into my mind

And I think I've seen your face, seen this room, been in this place

Something vivid comes again into my mind

Don't cry to me.

If you loved me,

You would be here with me.

You want me,

Come find me.

Make up your mind.

Should I let you fall?

Lose it all?

So maybe you can remember yourself.

Can't keep believing,

We're only deceiving ourselves.

And I'm sick of the lie,

And you're too late.

Little Too Late - Pat Benatar

You tell me that was the reason

For whatcha' put me through, Yeah

I feel the heat of your attack

Want me to take you back

I'm givin' you the sack

So don't waste your time

It's a Little Too Little

It's a Little Too Late

I'm a Little Too Hurt

And there's nothin' left that I've gotta say

You can cry to me baby

But there's only so much I can take

Ah, it's a Little Too Little

It's a Little Too Late

You say you had a good time

But did ya' think it was for free - yeah

And how much did it get ya', all their flattery

And now you come back, runnin' for protection

You've been bitten by love and stung by rejection

You can't connect

What did you expect?

I'm still gettin' over you

When you dream of home tonight?

There is no message we're receiving

Let me know, is your heart still beating?

Are we human, or are we dancer

My sign is vital, my hands are cold

And I'm on my knees looking for the answer...

You've gotta let me know

Are we human, or are we dancer

Mississippi Queen- Mountain

Mississippi Queen, She taught me everything

Way down around Vicksburg, Around Louisiana way

Lived a cajun lady, Aboard the Mississippi Queen

You know she was a dancer

She moved better on wine

I got red blood, and I got blood red wine

Which I bring you when the snow is heavy on the ground

If you say where go

I'll just, wrap my cloak around

Time - <3Pink Floyd<3

Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day

You fritter and waste the hours in an off hand way

Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town

Waiting for someone or something to show you the way

Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain

You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today

And then one day you find ten years have got behind you

No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun

And you run and you run to catch up with the sun, but its sinking

And racing around to come up behind you again

The sun is the same in the relative way, but youre older

Shorter of breath and one day closer to death

Every year is getting shorter, never seem to find the time

Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines

Hanging on in quiet desperation is the english way

The time is gone, the song is over, thought Id something more to say

Home, home again

I like to be here when I can

And when I come home cold and tired

Its good to warm my bones beside the fire

Far away across the field

The tolling of the iron bell

Calls the faithful to their knees

To hear the softly spoken magic spells.

Yes, I meant to italicize 'magic'. It doesn't really have to be the last word, it just has to come after the bolded yet. I could have left off 'spells', and then 'magic' would have been the last word. I left it for completeness and sing-a-long purposes. :P

OK this is the line that the witch was singing to Little Mermaid Ariel when she went to ask her for a favor! :lol:

"Poor Unfortunate Souls"

Vocals: Pat Carroll (Ursula)

And I fortunately know a little magic

It's a talent that I always have possesed

And here lately, please don't laugh

I use it on behalf

Of the miserable, lonely, and depressed-- Pathetic!

And people use some imagination! Think outside the Jukebox and don't copy/paste the entire songs, just a verse!! :D

Sorry Izzy for bossing people around! :blush: Force of habit, but honestly it's boring to read the entire song, small verse is much more interesting!

Edit: Try to italicise some challenging words!

Enraged (In minutes)

Don't condescend (Don't even disagree)

You suffered then

Now suffer under me

"Luno" Bloc Party

There will be no hesitation

There will be no confrontation

There will be no indication

There will be no cause

There will be no exultation

There will be no justification

There will be no way at all

And your nose is bleeding

You've been lying to me

This one shouldn't be hard :D

We should add a rule that the italicised word can't be in the title!! :) So just in case we can't think of a song to make our googling harder! ;)

I'm jumping in, because I just want to share this song:

"No Good Deed" - Wicked

Fiyero where are you, already dead or bleeding?

Just one more disaster to add to my generous supply.

No good deed goes unpunished

No act of charity goes unresented

Edited to put a more reasonable italic word in there.

The Kinks - Charity

Charity, all the world really needs is charity

We're living in a dream

I'll plead with you all till it tears me apart.

Is this all that we want?

Is this all that we really are?

Turn away if you want, turn away if you like,

For the rest of your life, every day every night,

In your house and your car, yes I know who you are.

Can you not hear the world in its pain trying to call to you?

Oh, oh, charity, we're living in a dream.

Charity, can't fool me with your vanity.

I've seen what's in your heart.

I'll plead with you all till it tears me apart.

Is this all that we want?

Is this all that we really are?

Will our hearts ever change, does it sound so strange?

When people touch, children cry, can you not wonder why?

In your own little world, can you not say a word?

Try to help someone else on this earth besides yourself.

"Do Me a Favor" Arctic Monkeys"

It's the beginning of the end, the car went up the hill,

And disappeared around the bend, ask anyone they'll tell you that

It's these times that it tends,

The start to breaking up, to start to fall apart

Oh! hold on to your heart.

Do me a favor, break my nose!

Do me a favor, tell me to go away!

Do me a favor, stop asking questions!

"Miss You" -Rolling Stones

I've been walking Central Park

Singing after dark

People think I'm crazy

I've been stumbling on my feet

Shuffling through the street

Asking people, "What's the matter with you boy?"

"Separate and Ever Deadly" The Last Shadow Puppets

There's an unfamiliar grip

On an unfamiliar handkerchief

Attending to the tears on cheeks

I wouldn't notice

With you no matter how vicious the grief

Her expression was damp and crooked

Grabs onto my throat and won't let go

I L-O-V-E this song!! :D

"Clowns and Jugglers" - Pink Floyd

Trip to heave and ho, up down, to and fro

You have no word

Trip, trip to a dream dragon

Hide your wings in a ghost tower

Sails cackling at every plate we break

Was cracked by scattered needles

The little minute gong

Coughs and clears his throat

Madam you see before you stand

Hey ho, never be still

Madam Medusa - UB40

From the land of shadows

Comes a dreadful sight

Lady with the marble smile

Spirit of the night

See the scourge of innocence

Swinging in her hand

Hear the silent suffering

That echoes through the land

From the tombs of ignorance

Of hate and greed and lies

Through the smoke of sacrifice

Watch her figure rise

The sick the poor the old

Basking in her radiance

Men of blood and gold

In her bloody footsteps

Speculators prance

Men of dreams are praying

For that second chance

Round her vacant features

Gilded serpents dance

Her tree of evil knowledge

Sprouts a special branch

Madam Medusa

Madam Medusa

Madam Medusa

Knock her right down

And then she bounce right back

Knock her right down

And then she bounce right back

She gone off her head

We`ve got to shoot her dead

She gone off her head

We`ve got to shoot her dead

Run for your life before she eat you alive

Run for your life before she eat you alive

Move out of the way 'cause you`re blocking out the day

Move out of the way 'cause you`re blocking out the day

"Gas Dance" The Last Shadow Puppets" (yet again)

And your jokes don't bounce and

you've entered the early stages of bitterness

And you washed all the wisdom out your mouth

And the gas danced on the edge of your bottom lip

Quick to scurry back behind the night

To avoid the silent fight and the struggle

:wub:

EDIT:

Reminder: There's no need to put the entire song, just one verse will be fine ;)
