Lyric Fragment Quiz Answers

Never got around to providing the answers to this quiz, but I guess George, Morpheus, Michelle and other readers got almost all of them. Still, just to make it official, here are the songs:

1. "US inflation" Wall of Voodoo, Mexican Radio

2. "put an arrow" Ratt, Round and Round

3. "take me bottom to top" Donna Summer's Dim All the Lights, which I thought was just a sort of sweet song about romancin' and dancin', but nope, turns out the lyrics are pretty dirty.

4. "elders of the gentle race" Led Zep, Kashmir

5. "cold in the gutter" I don't think anyone got this-- TLC, Waterfalls.

6. "empty by definition" -- Scritti Politti, A Perfect Way

7. "a trace of/hypocrisy" -- Extreme, Rest in Peace (Make Love Not War)

8. "thick and juicy" -- Baby Got Back by Sir Mix-a-lot. I don't think anyone got this, which surprised me.

9. "wild-eyed boys" -- Thin Lizzy, The Boys are Back in Town

10. "you could sex her" -- Young MC, Bust a Move

11. "Dealin' in multiplication" -- Eddie Grant, Electric Avenue

12. "this issue's gone" -- J. Geils Band, Centerfold

13. "I just drove by" -- Vanilla Ice, Ice Ice Baby

14. "feedin' me soup" -- Another one no one got. I'm not big on hip hop, but man, when I heard this song six or seven years ago, I cracked up laughing. It's Positive K, I Got a Man.

15. "ass like John McEnroe" -- House of Pain, Jump Around

16. "your price for flight" (CHANGED: Was "desperately pondered." Decided that was too obscure. The new lyric is for a new song entirely.) Nightranger, Sister Christian (way easy). The old lyric was from Lovefool by... um, the Cranberries? I forget.

17. "virginal brides" -- Bela Lugosi's Dead by Bauhaus

18. "lost my light" -- Tainted Love by Soft Cell.

19. "your exclusive company" (HINT: Spoken word part.) -- Popular by Nada Surf

20. "act like an imbecile" Safety Dance, Men Without Hats

21. "shoot it in" -- Relax, Frankie Goes to Hollywood

22. "great big world" -- I was suprised that no one seemed to get this. It's from American Girl by Tom Petty. After all, it was a great big world...

23. "subtle innuendoes" or "subtle innuendo" Goody Two Shoes by Adam Ant

24. "raw like sushi" Ahem. Rico Suave, by Geraldo, or whatever his name was.

25. "little bit terrified" Total Eclipse of the Heart, Bonnie Tyler. Written by Jim Steinman.

26. "tuning in on you" -- Video Killed the Radio Star, the Buggles

27. "eight by twelve four-bit" -- King of the Road by Roger Miller

28. "hating you for loving me" -- Berlin, The Metro

29. "host of holy horrors" -- Rush, Freewill
