Name That Song

I’ve only got a little bit of time to post tonight so I thought I’d make up a quiz. It’s pretty simple, just guess what songs these lyrics belong to and I’ll comment back with the correct answers. No cheating! Go! Do it NOW!

1. “And the room fills with steam, oh, evaporates, disappears.”

2. “I might go to bed now, I’ve got work in the morning.”

3. “You can love them all and when you’re through, maybe that’ll make, huh, a man out of you.”

4. “And all the roads that lead you there were winding, and all the lights that light the way are blinding.”

5. “And give my love to Angus and to Frank and Dolly, tell ’em all I’m sorry, I screwed up this time.”

6. “A kind of respect and trust that shouldn’t even be questioned, how can I open my heart with dishonesty sitting next to me?”

7. “Oh, we couldn’t bring the columns down, we couldn’t destroy a single one.”

8. “There are those of you, who got the wrong idea right now
but man you should of seen me when I got through.”

9. “And I’m counting the steps to the door of your heart, only the shadows ahead, barely clearing the roof.”

10. “Could be happy can’t you see, if you’d only let me be the one to hold you.”



  1. I think I could take a healthy stab at 8 of them. That would probably be unfair so I’ll limit myself
    to 2 for now.

    4. Wonderwall – Oasis

    6. Special Ones – George

    You’re missing a title too I think. Bloody Marley, that damn dog wrecks everything!

  2. I replied to this earlier but it doesn’t seem to have worked. Anyway, you are correct on those two. Any other guesses?

  3. 1. ??
    2. Business Time – Flight of the Conchords
    3. I Love The Nightlife – Alicia someone??
    5. How To Make Gravy – Paul Kelly
    7. I know it, just can’t get it without google..will keep trying
    8. ??
    9. I know it, I know it…..
    10. That Thing You Do

  4. 7. Special Two – Missy Higgins


  5. 7. Regina – Samson

    You’re a bewitcher, Elspeth!

  6. haha sorry about that. confusion reigns supreme.

  7. You gotta know number 6 surely…

  8. Yeah, no. 6 was one of the first ones I guessed.


  9. Yes of course. Well done.
