Sing Along with Disco Mom: A Name Game

Now with answers! Thanks everyone for playing!

Let's cut to the chase. Below you will find song lyrics, with missing lines as indicated. What they have in common is that the missing line contains one (or more) proper names.

Fill in the line, and name the song and artist if you can. Cheating is ok, I really don't care.

1. "Come on without, come on within,
You'll not see nothing like the Mighty Quinn."
Mighty Quinn by Manfred Mann (and others)

2. "Eight-fifty i.s. if you need a lift
Who's the kid in the drop
Who else, Will Smith
Livin' that life some consider a myth"
Gettin' Jiggy Wit It by Will Smith

3. "They had style, they had grace
Rita Hayworth gave good face."
Vogue by Madonna

4. "He wakes to find the fires dead
And arrows in his hats
And Davey Crockett rides around
And says its cool for cats."
Cool for Cats by Squeeze

5. "Have you talked to Mark lately?
Uh..haven't really talked to him but..he looks pretty uh..down.
He looks pretty uh..down? (while laughing)
Yeah well maybe we should cheer him up then"
Steal my Sunshine by Len

6. " Where have all the good men gone
And where are all the gods?
Where's the street-wise Hercules
To fight the rising odds?"
I Need a Hero by Bonnie Tyler

7. "My name is Luca
I live on the second floor
Yes, I think you've seen me before."
Luca by Suzanne Vega

8. "Goodnight you moonlight ladies,
Rockabye sweet baby James."
Sweet Baby James by James Taylor

9. "Brend(er) and Eddie were the popular steadies
And the king and the queen of the prom,
Riding around with the car top down
and the radio on."
Scenes from an Italian Restaurant by Billy Joel

10. "Saw the ghost of Elvis on Union Avenue
Followed him up to the gates of Graceland
Then I watched him walk right through"
Walking in Memphis by Marc Cohn

11. "Billie Jean is not my lover
She's just a girl who claims that I am the one
But the kid is not my son."
Billie Jean by Michael Jackson

12. "God bless you, please, Mrs. Robinson
Heaven holds a place for those who pray,
Hey, hey, hey"
Mrs. Robinson by Simon & Garfunkel

Bonus:
"Guess it's tea and toast for breakfast again
Maybe I'll add a little TV too
No milk, oh God how I hate that
Guess I'll go to the corner, get breakfast from Jenny
She's got a black eye this morning
'Jenny, how'd you get it'
She said, 'Last night Bobby got a little bit out of hand'..."
Sun Comes Up, It's Tuesday Morning by Cowboy Junkies

Maren said...

You got me. No idea on 4 or 5. Bonus sounds familiar, but I really don't know where to start if I'm to cheat on these.

Disco Mom said...

Let's wait for Dave - he'll know 4 & 5...or at least 4 and kick himself later if he doesn't get 5. Well done everyone else! Unfortunately my font of pop cult knowledge is only good for little games like this, and mostly amusing conversations with Dave. At this point in life I might trade it for more useful knowledge like current events, politics, or financial savvy, but I have what I have.

Davey said...

Oh hey we can cheat, I forgot. I might do that. But not today. To much work. Maybe at home tonight. I've got a post or two to make up as well. I'll at least wait until Dave chimes in. Then the cheating will commence.

dave said...

Sorry I'm late to the party.

4) is from one of my favorite Squeeze songs, Cool for Cats - the lyric is "And Davey Crockett rides around and says its cool for cats".

5) is from Steal my Sunshine, by Len. But i'm gonna have to listen to it real quick to remember the name. Stand by. Ah. Here we go. "Have you talked to Mark lately?"

I have no clue about the bonus either.

Disco Mom said...

Nice, Dave, knew you'd come through.

Um, I'm still waiting for the actual full right answer for #1. Tona's was pathetic considering her relations, and no one else provided the entire line.

I was afraid no one would know the bonus. I think I'm the only person I know who listens to such early Cowboy Junkies.

dave said...

oh sorry, didn't realize #1 was still out there. Mannfredd Mann's 'The Mighty Quinn'. Lyric is 'you've not seen nothing like the Mighty Quinn!" but I always sing "you Nazi! Nothing like the Mighty Quinn!"

Maren said...

One of my faves for obvious reasons, but I like the Grateful Dead's version better. Can we know the bonus now?
