Becky's Island Music Trivia Quiz #250 - 12/7/05

The Not Top 40

I stole this idea from TriviaOne in the hopes that they'll start up their series of music lyrics quizzes again. The following are lyrics from well-known songs of famous artists, many of which are staples on classic rock radio. All the songs have one interesting distinction, however: none of them made the Top 40 singles chart in the United States. Can you name the song and the artist?

1. "There is no pain, you are receding - a distant's ship smoke on the horizon"
2. "Sitting on a cornflake, waiting for the van to come"
3. "Watch out for that piranha!"
4. "Winter is here again, oh Lord, Haven't been home in a year or more"
5. "There's a lady who's sure all that glitters is gold."
6. "Touching the very part of me, it's making my soul sing"
7. "But every junkie's like a setting sun"
8. "Oh yeah, all right, take it easy baby, make it last all night"
9. "Well, the first days are the hardest days"
10. "Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans."
11. "Your face is a mess"
12. "We were just another band out of Boston"
13. "Crossroads seem to come and go, yeah, the gypsy flies from coast to coast"
14. "Please allow me to introduce myself, I'm a man of wealth and taste"
15. "How long, how long must we sing this song"
16. "Brenda and Eddie were the popular steadies and the king and the queen of the prom"
17. "Listen to the wind blow, watch the sun rise"

Bonus: "Thoughts arrive like butterflies, oh he don't know, so he chases them away"

Good Luck!!!
