View Full Version : The Song Quote Game

Pages : [1] 2 3 4 5 6

2014-06-28, 09:26 PM
Quoting songs is fun, and that is the basis of this game. The game will have a series of rounds (I'm thinking each round will last a day or two, but if anyone prefers a longer/shorter length, I'm willing to listen). Each round will have a topic. During the round, people will quote a song. The quoted lyrics must relate to the topic.

Please give one quote per post, to give other people a better chance to also come up with something. You can post multiple times per round, but the three post rule applies.

The same song can be quoted multiple times in a single round, but it must be a different part of the song until the next round. Naming the song and band you're quoting would be preferable.

Topic: Weather
1st Poster: "THUNDERBOLTS AND LIGHTNING, VERY VERY FRIGHTENING me." - Bohemian Rhapsody, Queen
2nd Poster: "You are my sunshine, my only sunshine." - You are my Sunshine
3rd Poster: "Any way the wind blows." - Bohemian Rhapsody, Queen

The game doesn't have any points or goal, but if you want to keep score, you could keep track of how many quotes you give. I'll give the topic for a few rounds, and if anyone else wants to come up with a new topic, they can take over.

First Topic: Food

"We finish each other's..." "Sandwhiches!" - Love is an Open Door, Frozen

I hope you're feeling happy now

I wonder what you're doin' now

do you still play the same moves now

I hope you're feeling happy now

"I take a walk outside, I'm surrounded by some kids at play
I can feel their laughter, so why do I sear?
Oh, and twisted thoughts that spin 'round my head
I'm spinning, oh, I'm spinning
How quick the sun can drop away
And now my bitter hands cradle broken glass of what was everything
All the pictures that have all been washed in black tattooed everything."

How it hurts to lose a partner,
How it hurts to lose a friend.
There is no wound but still there is agonizing pain.
When you're tired of the pressure.
And there's no room for mistake.
And the words don't seem to make it right.
No matter what you say.

There was a flash of lightning, Followed by snow
Twas just the moment of change, Before years of sorrow

The shock and awe, the fright and woe
I only had one life to live, and life said no.

The loss of love, has left me hollow
All bliss twists into pain, Where there was joy, years of grief have followed

That story's finished. That story's ended.
Understand there's nothing more that we can do.
And I will not risk losing you.
For if you leave now, you will be fighting
for a people that refuse to comprehend
They have chosen their own end.
So you will stay here. You will obey me.
And I will keep grieving for the son I sent to death.
You are all that I have left.

You need to know.
You are not him.
This fight's not yours.

You cannot win.

I wish my Italian was better; opera has so many heart-breaking arias I just can't quote. Ah, well...this'll do:

"He slept a summer by my side
He filled my days with endless wonder
He took my childhood in his stride
But he was gone when autumn came.

And still I dream he'll come to me
That we will live the years together
But there are dreams that cannot be
And there are storms we cannot weather!

I had a dream my life would be
So different from this hell I'm living
So different now, from what it seemed
Now life has killed the dream I dreamed!"

Rainbows, daffodils, she's not naïve; symbolism's all crap.
There's a big picture window in their room on the ward with a view over Parliament Hill,
But the view offers more joy than they can afford when there's this much pain to kill.

Light the face of dead worlds, forever in my heart

Burned are the homes where dreams could be born
The whispers of hope, into hate they are torn"

Death on the doorstep and endless debate,
And God only knows how much blood it will take
Before someone makes right all the wrong.

Now he's just another death on the bottom of the page,

Would-be movie queen
In '47, it seemed like heaven
Time to take it overseas

She beat it to the island
Of rum, romance and dreams
But Papa Doc's old choppin' block
Soon was gonna change the scene

Peering through the midnight vines
The pointed knives and the painted faces smile
Demon rum and beating drums
Untie the beast that's been there all her life
And all the while...

Winding through the curves in a big convertible
Trying to hide her eyes from the Haitian sun
But he left you cold in a blue eyed trance, girl
You better run now 'cause you gonna get no second chance

The Brazil that I knew
Where I wandered with you
Lives in my imagination.

Where the songs are passionate,
And a smile has flash in it,
And a kiss has art in it,
For you put your heart in it,
And so I dream of old Brazil

Where hearts were entertaining June,
We stood beneath an amber moon
And softly murmured “someday soon”
We kissed and clung together,
Then tomorrow was another day
The morning found me miles away
With still a million things to say

Now when twilight dims the sky above,
Recalling thrills of our love,
There’s one thing I’m certain of;
Return I will
To old Brazil.
