Answers to the first lines quiz

Answers to the quiz. Bolded lyrics went unguessed.

1. Someone told me long ago / There's a calm before the storm -- Creedence Clearwater Revival, "Have You Ever Seen the Rain" motteditor (The version that came up was a cover by Spin Doctors, from the Philadelphia soundtrack)

2. On the floor of Tokyo / Or down in London Town to go go -- Billy Idol, "Dancing with Myself" mindset

3. Those times I waited for you seem so long ago / I wanted you far too much to ever let you go -- Scandal, "Goodbye to You" (Scandal is probably better known for "The Warrior," but this song seems to crop up just as often.)

4. Poor old Johnny Ray -- Dexys Midnight Runners, "Come On Eileen" bobmungovan

5. I don't want you to misunderstand me / I just want to say what's on my mind -- Chicago, "Stay the Night" (And let me just say, that's a stalkerish-creepy, yet unintentionally hilarious video)

6. There's this girl that's been on my mind -- Phil Collins, "Sussudio" kateshort

7. Got a good reason for taking the easy way out -- Beatles, "Day Tripper" motteditor

8. I get such a thrill when you look in my eyes / My heart skips a beat, girl, I feel so alive -- Baha Men, "Best Years of Our Lives" (This fun song is, as the video makes really obvious, best known from the Shrek soundtrack)

9. Black and orange stray cat sittin' on a fence -- Stray Cats, "Stray Cat Strut" bobmungovan

10. Listen boy, don't want to see you let a good thing slip away -- Billy Joel, "Tell Her About It" sigma7

11. I caught you smiling, I know I've seen you here before / How come you're hiding? Hey don't you wanna hit the floor? -- Shalamar, "Dancing in the Sheets" (Probably my least favorite song from the Footloose soundtrack, but it's what came up on the random playlist)

12. We all came out to Montreux -- Deep Purple, "Smoke on the Water" sigma7

13. Out where the river broke -- Midnight Oil, "Beds are Burning" sigma7

14. Do you hear me? / Do you care? -- Missing Persons, "Words" (Dee Snider called; he wants his hair & makeup back...)

15. Is there anything more I can do for you? / Should my hair be red or shall it be blue? -- Culture Beat, "Anything" (I hadn't seen this video before; I really like the Blade Runner-esque aspects and was fascinated by the way the female lead sells her part with only minimal movements--now if only she sang the verses, too...)
