Remaining song lyrics...


1. I'm a doctor, I'm a lawyer, I'm a movie star.
I'm an astronaut, and I own this bar.
--I'd Lie to You For Your Love; The Bellamy Brothers. valarltd

5. Was it really voodoo
Or just weakness in the man?
The only time he ever fell
Was when she took his hand.
[Insert title here]
-- Dancy's Dreams; Restless Heart. ailise(title)/kdorian(artist)

11. How long since I spent a whole night in a twin bed with a stranger,
His warm arms all around me?
--Love Song to a Stranger; Joan Baez. lovessong/spike21

16. Let me see if I can set the scene:
It's a one-dog town, and he's old and mean.
There's one stoplight, and it's always green --
[Insert title here]
--Nobody Gets Off In This Town; Garth Brooks. kdorian/ailise

17. How long was I asleep?
When did we plan to meet?
Have you been waiting long for me?
--The Wheel; Roseanne Cash. redbrickrose

20. The most perfect of strangers,
And then the night closed in
And the holy ground
Took care of everything.
--The Loving Time; Mary Black. northofnormal

38. There's always radio,
And for a dime,
I can talk to God,
Dial a prayer.
Are you there,
Do you care?
--In the Winter; Janis Ian, covered by Sheena Easton. ailise/discord26

5 - that's the group!
16 - Yup! (Someone else already guessed the artist but not the song, so that one I'll put up.)

*shakes head with sadness* Where have all the Joan Baez fans gone? (And ack, that was NOT a deliberate allusion to another, more famous, Joan Baez song. Sometimes I wonder about the inner workings of my head.)

you do know I didn't recognise a single one of the songs, even after they were identified? Me thinks your tastes run to things where I'm woefully uneducated :)

Hee! Lots of country, much of it 80's country. And 70's and 80's standards/easy listening/soft rock.

yeah - country is my least-liked genre ever, and I just never sopent any meaningfull amount of time around soft cock rock ;)

on the other hand that I'm a doctor I'm a lawyer song? kept me up till 4 am with a fantastic song fic idea that did the fairy gold thing and left me high and dry. The lyrics still kick, but the story will be confined to the bin!

Number one sounds like something out of Buckaroo Banzai, but other than that... *g*

Ha!

It's country, and 80's country at that, if it helps.

"Loving Time," by Mary Black. I've always wanted to make a Buffy/Angel vid to that song, but I don't know how to vid, so . . .

Yes!

Yeah, I've always thought of it as B/A too. (In BtVS terms anyway. I first heard it played on Strange Luck so technically in my head it's DB Sweeney's character/Guest Star Chick.) My roomie vidded it (sort of; it's kind of a proto-vid with still images) to Trigun, so I feel obliged to keep my hands off it and not actually *do* a B/A vid.

1) "I'd lie to you for your love" by the Bellamy Brothers.

Thaaaaaaaank you!

That was probably the most obscure one; I was afraid I'd have to give the answer myself!

17) The Wheel; Rosanne Cash (at least I have her doing it, I don't know if anyone else did it first.)
Incidentally, in my head this song is an Angel/Cordelia video. That isn't even my ship and I don't know how to make videos, but still. ;)

at least I have her doing it, I don't know if anyone else did it first I think she was the songwriter, so it's likely she was the first.

Hmm -- it does sound like an Angel/Cordy vid, taking Season 5 into account. Except it doesn't quite fit with how Cordy actually acted when she woke up -- the narrator of the song is confused and figuring things out, while Cordy comes pre-packed with knowledge. A little more depresisng for me though, is that Angel doesn't *do* what the singer suggests, in terms of puting down his dagger and shield and taking up the hearts he came to heal. He goes all into the fight, and -- aside from Connor -- the emotions of his friends are secondary to Getting The Job Done.

You're probably right, especially about Angel. I've always loved the song, and I think it started reminding me of Angel/Cordy even before "You're Welcome," because she came back all confused and amnesiay (though we do know now it wasn't really Cordy). I do think it would work much better post-s5, but you're right that she was definitely more confident than the narrator.

(Don't mind me and my rant. I actually have a list of songs in my head that I would vid if I had time/software/talent, you just happened to hit one of them. ;) This is a fun meme.)

I'd just like to point out that I totally tricked you. #38? There's totally the same exact set of lines in my game. And you missed it.

*grins*

Of course, I missed it in yours, too...

Dude, that's why I said #7 - heh. :-P I wasn't going to guess because I didn't think it would be fair to people who didn't just quote the exact same set of lines in their own journal.

Dork.

I totally didn't even notice until right before I made the above comment. :P

What's wierder still is that I hadn't listened to that song in months and it just sifted up out of a randomized MP3 playlist.
