Songbird Lyrics Game

Let's finish this one up! -take note of the blatant clues next to the unanswered ones.
Name the song that the lyrics belong to and/or an artist who performed it. Let us know which ones you knew, even if it has already been answered.
Blue=Unanswered Grey=incomplete Black=already answered
1) I wonder how you're feeling-There's ringing in my ears-And no one to relate to, 'cept the sea.

2)Sweet days of summer, the jasmine's in bloom-July is dressed up and playing her tune-

3)I must take a trip to California,-And leave my poor sweetheart alone.

4) Didn't you love the things they stood for? -Didn't they try to find some good in you and me?

5)One look from you and I would fall from grace -And that would wipe this smile right from my face.

6)I know your anger, I know your dreams-I've been everything you wanna be ohhh…

7)I've got my suitcase in my hand-Now, ain't that a shame-I'm leavin' here today-Yes, I'm goin' back home to stay-

8)Before the rising sun we fly,-So many roads to choose-We start our walking and learn to run.

9)Hitchin' on a twilight train-Ain't nothing here that I care to take along-Maybe a song-To sing when I want-

10)So you put on the TV and you're watchin Johnny Carson segway in right into the Tomorrow show -but that don't got the go so you turn it off ya turn on the radio-This one is by the son of a famous old-time folk singer-The song is a long story/song that takes place in Massachusetts-a place where "you can get anything you want."

11)I'm waiting in my cold cell, when the bell begins to chime. Reflecting on my past life- and it doesn't have much time.

12)The exodus is here-The happy ones are near-Let's get together-Before we get much older.-This is a rock group that has a question for a name.

13)The highway's jammed- with broken heroes -on a last chance power drive

14)The mountain is high-The valley is low -and you're confused on which way to go-

15) Rain gray town known for its sound-In places small faces unbound-This is by a group that David Crosby was in before he joined C-S+Nash-It is a song of great heights.

16) I do believe in you-And I know you believe in me

17) And I was born in the back seat of a- Greyhound bus-Rolling down highway forty-one

18) Let me travel this la-and -from the mountains to the sea-'Cause that's the life- I believe He meant for me-This is by the most famous male country singer of all time who died at the age of 29-It's title is the same as number 17.
Next Songbird Lyrics Game will be August 22 at 7pm.

Larry, it's a requirement to live in NJ to know all Bon Jovi and Bruce songs.

Deb said...

Ha! For once I know not one but TWO of the unanswereds! :)

5- "Heat of the Moment", Asia

16- "Feelin' Stronger Every Day", Chicago

Mary said...

Well, Larry. You said "around 7pm" and that darn Lynne was right on the ball! LOL!

I know a few of the answered ones but can't guess on the blue ones. This is fun, though!

Larry said...

Patrick-I kind of figured that.

Deb-I didn't even know you looked at these games-good going!

Mary-I thought you might get the last one which is by a classic country music singer.You guessed a song by him before, and it shares the same title as one of the song titles already answered.

Okay--I knew 1, 5, 8, 14, 17. These blue ones are killing me! I thought that 18 might be If I Had a Hammer--but I don't think that's right. I don't know!
