Saturday Night Name that Song

Ok, with the runaway popularity of Friday Night Name that Movie, shamelessly stolen from inspired by Shakespeare's Sister, and in the tradition of Law and Order and CSI (and because I'm bored), I've decided to spin it off until I take something successful and just turn it into a big joke. Keep in mind that I don't listen to a lot of music these days, but these lyrics are randomly taken from music on my computer. Good luck, and if you get them all, you might win a prize.*

1. I'm the Peter Piper of the 1980s...
2. ...hold my breath as I wish for death, oh please God help me.
3. ...gettin' funky on the mike like a old batch of collard greens
4. When you make love, do you look in your mirror? Who do you think of? Does he look like me?
5. I've been everywhere, and still I'm standin' tall. I've seen a million faces and I rocked them all.
6. You try to scream, but terror takes the sound before you make it.
7. He's nervous, but on the surface he looks calm and ready...to drop bombs but he keeps on forgetting what he wrote down.
8. I'd hate to look into those eyes and see an ounce of pain.
9. My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim, I had to stop for the night.
10. You think I give a fuck about a bitch? I ain't a sucker.



* There is no prize.

2. One, Metallica (there was a bad cover band that used to play this all the time at the campus pub)
7. Lose Yourself, Eminem
8. Sweet Child of Mine, Guns N' Roses
9. Hotel California, Eagles

That's all I've got for now.

John Howard said...

Those are all correct.

Chris Howard said...

2. We want some Pussy by 2 live crew
5. Wanted Dead or Alive by Bon Jovi
6. Thriller by Michael Jackson

4. "Love Bites" Def Leppard (little embarrassed that I know that)

John Howard said...

Chris, you got 5 and 6, and almost got another one.

Susan, you got 4.

Shakespeare's Sister said...

OMG, lol. I didn't know a single one! I'm terrible at recognizing song lyrics.

(I like all those songs, though.)

Recidivist said...

We Want Some Pussy by 2 Live Crew is #1, not #2

#3 is Dr. Dre / Snoop Doggy Dogg, but I don’t know the name of the song

John Howard said...

Recidivist, you're right on both.

Chris Howard said...

Damn the 2 in 2 Live Crew must have confused me.

John Howard said...

Yeah, I could see how that could be confusing.

John Howard said...

3 and 10 are still unanswered, but to go along with recidivist's hint on 3, I'll say that #10 also features Dr. Dre.

John Howard said...

Ok, before this post gets buried, #3 was Nothin' but a G Thang, by Dr. Dre with Snoop Doggy Dogg. And #10 was Straight Outta Compton by NWA.
