Subject:An easier lyrics quiz
Time:03:00 am
This one has a theme, and I guarantee it's less obscure than the last one. If anyone gets through this and can't at least tell me what the theme is, I'll have to stomp my foot or roll my eyes or something.

1. She said that living with me,
Is bringing her down yeah,
For she would never be free when I was around.

2. She told me she worked in the morning and started to laugh,
I told her I didn't, and crawled off to sleep in the bath.

3. All these places had their moments,
With lovers and friends I still can recall,

4. Why would she treat us so thoughtlessly
How could she do this to me.

5. I'm filling in the cracks that ran through the door
And kept my mind from wandering

6. Working for peanuts is all very fine,
But I can show you a better time.

7. Sleep pretty darling do not cry,
And I will sing a lullaby.

8. And when the broken hearted people
Living in the world agree

9. Don't you think the joker laughs at you?

10. Now my advice for those who die,
Declare the pennies on your eyes,

1 Ticket to Ride-The Beatles
2 Norwegian Wood-The Beatles
3 In My Life-The Beatles
4 She's leaving Home-The Beatles
5 Fixing a Hole-The Beatles
6 Drive My Car-The Beatles
7 Golden Slumbers-The Beatles
8 Let It Be-The Beatles
9 I am the Walrus-The Beatles
10 Taxman-The Beatles

For the theme, I'll guess British pop bands of the sixties that were more popular than Jesus Christ.

All Beatles songs. If I spent more time on it I could probably get them all except 9 and maybe 6, but right off the top of my head:

1. Ticket to Ride
2. Norwegian Wood
3 [frustrating -- I can hum it but I can't remember the title]
4. She's Leaving Home
5. Fixing a Hole
6. not sure
7. [same as 3 -- can hum but can't get the lyric to go back to the title]
8. Eleanor Rigby
9. dunno
10. Tax Man

2. The Beatles, Norwegian Wood
3. The Beatles, In My Life
6. The Beatles, Drive My Car
9. The Beatles, I Am The Walrus
10. The Beatles, Taxman

Not really seeing a theme, though.

(I *know* #7, and not being able to name it is driving me nuts, but I'm not resorting to Google quite yet.)

Beatles!

I'm sure I know most of them, if not all, but here's the ones I can figure out right now:

2. Norwegian Wood (I did cheat to get the title of this song, but I knew the song, just couldn't remember the name of it)
8. Let It Be
9. I Am the Walrus

3 seems really familiar, but I can't place it right now.
