Sorry if something like this has been done before...

Ok, I'll post some lyrics with blanks in it, and I won't tell you what artist or song it is. You try to fix the lyrics. Keep in mind that I'll mainly do Classic Rock, so if you're not a fan of the genre you might be at a disadvantage. I can't really help this, and I'm sorry.

I'll have five blanks in each song. You get:

-One point for every blank you get right.

-A sixth point if you get all the blanks right.

-Two points if you get the artist right. In the strange event that it's been covered, I'm looking for the original artist.

-Two points if you get the song title right.

Since some artists don't list their lyrics in the CD's inside book, causing some different opinions in lyrics, I will use a certain site to determine the "right" lyrics.

Please only do one or two per post.

Ok, I'll list some right here. I'll make them different colors to make it easier to see:

I'm feelin' like a bad boy
Mmm, just like a bad boy
I'm rippin' up a ___ ____
Like ________ away an old toy
Some babe's talkin' real loud
Talkin' all about the new _____
Try and sell me on an old dream
A new _______ of the old scene



If they don't take that game
And sometimes the winner takes nothing
We draw our own _______
But fortune has to make that frame

We go out in the world and take our _______
Fate is just the weight of circumstances
That's the way that Lady ____ dances
____ the _____



Is this the real life-
Is this just _______-
Caught in a _________-
No ______ from reality-
Open your eyes
Look up to the _____ and see-
I'm just a poor ___, I need no sympathy-



Into the distance, a ribbon of black
Stretched to the point of no turning ____
A flight of fancy on a windswept _____
________ alone my senses reeled
A fatal attraction is holding me fast, how
Can I escape this ____________ grasp?

Can't keep my eyes from the ________ skies
Tongue-tied and twisted Just an earth-bound misfit, I



I looked out this _______ and the sun was gone
______ on some music to start my ___
I lost myself in a familiar ____
I ______ my eyes and I slipped away

I like this idea for a game. Haven't seen anything like it here before. However, I'm going to move it to the Activities and Competitions forum. If the Song Game belongs there, so does this.

Ok. I didn't know where I was supposed to put a topic like this. Thank you for moving it for me.

And you got the song completely right, so you get 10 points. You can try another one if you like.

leet for gets 10 points for Roll the Bones.

Nido gets 8 points because he forgot to list the song title. You probably just forgot, so you can post it if you want and get the 2 points.

The other two (the pink one and the red one) are still available for anyone who wants them, and I'll try to add some new ones sooner or later.

Oh, I didn't even notice we were supposed to put the song title. It's "More Than A Feeling", of course, by Boston.

Ok, Riku gets a 10 for "Learning to Fly." The "I" at the end was just part of the lyrics. For future reference, you don't have to correct anything that doesn't have a blank.

And Nido gets 2 points added to his score for "More than a Feeling."

The red one is still left and will be posted again here. I'll also add four more.

I was looking for Yes, but Steve Howe was once the guitarist for Yes, so I'll give you 1 pt. for it.

So your total score for that song is 9 pts.
