Default Lyrics

Straightforwardly identify the song and artist.

1. Find me and follow me: through corridors, refectories - Dark of the Matinee by Franz Ferdinand

2. In a car with a girl, promise me she's not your world - Andy, you're a star by The Killers

3. Oh, there's a very pleasant side to you, a side I much prefer: it's one that laughs and jokes around. Remember cuddles in the kitchen? Yeah, to get things off the ground, and it was up, up, and away, but it's reet 'ard to remember that on a day like today, when you're all argumentative, and you've got the face on. - Mardy Bum by Arctic Monkeys

4. If you see a fair maid, her hair in ashen grey, careful you don't catch her - The White Hare by Seth Lakeman

5. There's nothing, no nothing, you can teach me, that I can't learn from Mr Hathaway. I didn't get a lot in class, but I know it don't come in a shot glass - Rehab by Amy Winehouse

6. Now you're calling me up on the phone, so you can have a little whine and a moan - Smile by Lily Allen

7. She gave me some dictation, but my strength is in administration. I took down all she said, I even took down her little red dress. We need to talk (need to talk) - Step into my Office, Baby by Belle & Sebastian

8. Why did you stick me in self-deprecating bones and skin? - I Have Forgiven Jesus by Morrissey

9. I could be brown, I could be blue, I could be violet sky - Grace Kelly by Mika

10. The buying power of the proletariat's gone down; money's getting shallow and weak - Workingman's Blues #2 by Bob Dylan

I know I've heard #1 before, but I can't place it.

#2 is Andy, you're a star by The Killers

Like Col, I know 6 but can't place it.

8 is I Have Forgiven Jesus by Morrissey (I think - something from You Are the Quarry anyway)

Horrors! I've worked out that no. 6 is a Lily Allen song (because I can hear her whinging that 'whine and a moan' line in my head) but I can't tell her songs apart so it could be any or either...

Sympathies, Col... I know exactly what you mean about Lily Allen's songs! It is one of hers, yes.

That's 1, 2, 8, 9 & 10 all done - well done all!
