Lyric Fragment Quiz (Corrected)

A friend told me the last quiz was just too long. This one's shorter. The lyrics here are pretty fragmentary, too, and the more famous the song, the shorter I've tried to make them.

It's a mix of 80's one-hit (or couple of hit MTV) wonders, a few lyrics from classic rock (not many, actually), and then some 90's radio rock. Some are easy, but a lot are sorta tough.

Note: I botched the lyric slightly to one song, and more than slightly to another. Corrections included, along with error.


1. "monkey can't stand"

2. "don't keep it in ya"

3. "western shore"

4. "stay alive"

5. "such a dirty mind"

6. "du liebst mir nicht"

7. "and she wouldn't give it to me"

8. "fight you to the end"

9. "the thing just isn't movin' "

10. "I'd like to... watch"

11. "cool on craze"

12. "invitation to the world"

13. "food of love"

14. "hurt you too"

15. "nest of salt"

16. "sex is overrated too"

17. "suns that were freezing" (PROBABLY NOT "freezing their eyes" as I originally wrote)

18. "noises above"

19. "feelin' lonely people"

20. "tellin' you a secret"

21. "shook and lurched"

22. "But you've gone out to town"

23. "Disney abbatoir"

24. "sold the Renoir" (NOT "stole the Renoir" as I originally wrote)

25. "there, where?"

26. "blow it all away"

27. "dream for insomniacs"

28. "sticky everywhere"

29. "I got a notion"

30. "kinda sad and uninspired"
