UPDATE: You guys rock! I am so glad you all share in my music mania. Thanks everybody for playing! I will do another installment very soon since it was so much fun! 

~Picture me dancing to my bonus song~

Going on the brilliance of Michelle  and in anticipation of a great weekend, I wanted to have my own version of “Don’t forget the lyrics” with some of my favorite songs.

So, have a go at it! No cheating ( i.e. Google, lyric searches) and give me the missing lyrics, the artist, and the title of the song in the comment section.

Play, it will be fun! For all of you lurking just reading this is your time to jump in and let me know who you are!

For now, just answer one song and then if we get stuck we will open them back up tomorrow!

Good luck!

2.  Don’t wish, don’t start. Wishing only wounds the heart. I wasn’t born for the rose and the pearls. He could be that boy, but I’m not that girl. I’m Not That Girl from the Broadway Musical Wicked. Guessed by Jenamie.

3.  I need to go shopping, these shoes are all wrong. Just look in my closet not a thing to put on. I wonder how these jeans make me look from behind? Things That Never Cross a Man’s Mind by Kellie Pickler. Guessed by Tara.

5.  I was so lost back then, but with a little help from my friends, I found a light in a tunnel at the end. Now your calling me up on the phone so you can have a little whine and a moan. And it’s only because your feeling alone. Smile by Lily Allen. Guessed by Sandy Mc.

  1. 1. The Eagles – Desperado – your best bet.

  2. Yay! I got #7. The missing lyrics are “every broadway show”. The artist is Sara Bareilles and the song is Vegas. I’m so excited that I knew the answer to one!

  3. i got the last one! Fireflies, Faith Hill. missing lyrics “to get by”. love that song!

  4. Oh I’ve got number 2!

    2. Don’t wish, don’t start. Wishing only wounds the heart. I wasn’t born for the rose and the pearl. He could be that guy, but I’m not that girl.

    Oh from Wicked, I LOVE that show 🙂

  5. I only know the bonus question. (:

    The Format, “The First Single”
    “I can’t define.”
    “clap our hands and stomp our feet”
    “I can’t define.”

    I think that’s it.

  6. THANK YOU for including Rent in this! I got so nervous because I didn’t recognize anything as I began to scroll down…

    11. “… the raging twisting winds of change keep ripping away”

    Hmm, maybe I will begin my own version of this game. It’s fun!

  7. I’ve got #9 I think:

    I know it’s hard on a rainy day
    You wanna shut the world out and just be left alone
    But don’t run out on your faith!

    Carrie Underwood – So Small

  8. WOW! You guys know your music!

    Megan – don’t you fear about RENT being included my dear, hats off to you, you are obviously a true Renthead for getting that one!

  9. oh rent! my heart jumped a little when i read that. yay rentheads. :o) i don’t think i know any of the songs that haven’t already been guessed, but i’m gonna pour over them one more time and see if i get one… :o)

  10. Yay you used one of my favorite songs!

    #3 is “look from behind” Kellie Pickler, Things that never cross a man’s mind

  11. I absolutely suck at this game! It could be a song I sing every day and I still can’t write down the lyrics. Anyway…thanks for the fun!

  12. 6 is Who Knew by Pink–“I wish I could still call you friend.” I loooooove that song.

  13. Rachel- this is apparently Renthead/Newsies central. We are slightly obssessed.

    Tara- Like I said, sorry it wasn’t Taylor

    1218 – I sucked at this when I did it on Michelle’s. It is SO Hard without the melody behind it. You are so right.

    Jess- I love it too, a great remembering song. I am sad that I can’t do the ! in Pink’s name.

  14. 5- “Smile” by Lily Allen- I listened to her on repeat for about a week.
    8- some girls are born to make you cry 🙂 I’m obsessed with Aerosmith. This is “Girls of Summer”
    love the game!

  15. #10 is Ingrid Michaelson I did look up the name of the song, because I could literally sing it for you and not have any idea what it’s called. I thought it was “Fall Over”, which is what she says over and over, but it’s “Overboard”.

    Oh, and the words missing are “big girl shoes”…I love that line.

  16. I only know no 5 and onlyslightlyneurotic got there before me. 🙂 I have to do this one soon… 🙂
    Have a great weekend!

  17. “i wish it were simple but WE GIVE UP EASILY..”

    gotta love kt tunstall & the other side of the world.

  18. Well I missed out on the guessing obviously.. but would you mind if I stole this idea and did it on my blog too? This is a lot of fun!!

  19. damn i’m late on this one! i SO would have gotten “things that never cross a man’s mind”

    what a great song!!

  20. Thank you for this lovely site, i hope you have time to visit mine.. (:
