(212) Music Lyrics Meme

This one is for Scott-O-Rama who tagged me in the Music Lyrics Meme game two weeks ago (I'm finally getting off my keister and playing!):

For those guessing the songs (this is where you come in): You can make your guess by leaving a comment or e-mailing me. Looking the lyrics up on Google or any other search engine is cheating! Please play nice!

"Two of Us" by the Beatles (Aimee Mann and Michael Penn for me) (Ryan)
2. "Just like the white-winged dove, sings a song sounds like she's singing"

7. "He was on his way home from Candletop"

"The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia" by Vicki Lawrence (Dennis!)
8. "If she knew what she wants"

"If She Knew What She Wants" by the Bangles (Dennis!)
9. "She moves like she don't care, smooth as silk, cool as air"

"Maria" by Blondie (Ryan)
10. "He's infinitely wise, but he infinitely lies, we're no longer just plain folks"
11. "Brain engages mouth, mouth expresses thoughts, of how we shared those fun fair rides"

"This Summer" by Squeeze (Richard)
12. "Good morning to you I hope you're feeling better baby"
13. "All you can do is grow up, haven't you heard that enough?"
14. "I got my first real six-string -- oh, at the Five and Dime"

"Summer of '69" by Bryan Adams (Ed Z)
15. "Oh the heads that turn make my back burn"

"She Sells Sanctuary" by the Cult (Ryan)
16. "Oh yeah, baby, I wanna tell you something girl, God intended and you planned it"
17. "All your life you've waited for love to come and stay"

"The Goodbye Girl" by David Gates (Michael)
18. "She paints her fingernails forbidden tones"

Have fun!

Very impressive, Dennis, especially No. 7, which I got off of Michael's 1970s Explosion CD set from the infomercial starring Greg Brady!

The judges, however, cannot give you No. 9. :-0

Aw, for some reason I thought "Maria" was a solo effort. Oops.

Sadly, I've known all the words to "Georgia" for quite a long time....

6. "Don't look over my shoulder, I'm trying to read"

One of my favorite Blondie songs of all time...the failed Bond theme "FOr Your Eyes Only"
