Saturday Night Name that Song

Well, you guys sucked last week. Let's try and do better this time, ok? There is a theme, get it and all the songs and you might win a prize.*

1. It’s drivin’ me out of my mind That’s why it’s hard for me to find
2. When I look in your eyes, there I'll see All that a love should really be
3. Moonshot, Woodstock, Watergate, punk rock
4. And now you’ve finally found Everything you wanted and need in me
5. Without wings, without wheels
6. It's been seven hours and fifteen days Since you took your love away
7. I don't know where I'm going Only God knows where I've been
8. Smack it up flip it, rub it down Oh no
9. get your booty on the floor tonight Make my day
10. When all else fails and you long to be Something better than you are today

* There is no prize.

#3 is Billy Joel's We Didn't Start the Fire.

#6 is Sinead O'Conner's Nothing Compares 2 U, which was actually written by Prince.

#7 is Bon Jovi's Blaze of Glory.

Is the theme that they're all singles from the same year? (1989, maybe?)

John Howard said...

All three are correct. You're pretty close on the theme.

1) Poison - Bell Biv Devoe
2) Luther Vandross - Here and Now
5) Roam - B52s
8) Do Me - Bell Biv Devoe
9) Pump up the Jam - Technotronic
10) Vogue - Madonna

I'm thinking 1990?

Are they all songs that you listened to when you first met your wife? That'd be a really cute theme.

John Howard said...

All correct, including the theme. They were all top songs of 1990. I thought about doing something with songs that were popular when I met my wife, in honor of her birthday, but I figured no one would get that theme. And I didn't meet her until 1997.

Anyway, anyone want to try #4?

#4 - I don't Have the Heart byt James Ingram
