Also, in this format, there's no music involved. So a song you might easily recognize after hearing only the first bar or two could be elusive when only staring at the lyrics.



For “Gentle on my Mind” it was “knowing I’m not shackled”. That is a very distinctive lyric to a complicated song. The double check was that the meter fit.

And now, in the category "Gangsta", name that song...

Here's a murder rap to keep yo dancin
with a crime record like Charles Manson
AK-47 is the tool
Don't make me act the motherf----n fool
Me you can go toe to toe, no maybe
I'm knockin n----z out tha box, daily
yo weekly, monthly and yearly
until them dumb motherf---ers see clearly
that I'm down with the capital C-P-T
Boy you can't f--- with me
So when I'm in your neighborhood, you better duck
Coz Ice Cube is crazy as f---
As I leave, believe I'm stompin
but when I come back, boy, I'm comin...



The seldom-sung and oft-censored third verse to Mr. Rogers' "It's a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood" theme song?


Here's another one in the Pop 60's category, and once again referencing Ruggero Leoncavallo's best-known opera:

Just like Pagliacci did,
I try to keep my sadness hid,
Smiling in the public eye,
But in my lonely room I cry...

Too good of a clue, too specific a lyric. I can see right through the smoke(y).

Close my eyes, she's somehow closer now
Softly smile, I know she must be kind
When I look in her eyes
She goes with me to a blossom world

Heh heh. Maybe Mr Robinson's neighborhood...



If you carefully examine the last four lines, you should be able to deduce the final words off the verse which are also this famous song's title.
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

In the category "90's Gambling Rock" (aka "Gambling Song #2)

"All my elevens and sevens been comin' up sixes and nines. But since I fell for you baby, been comin' on changin' times..."



This artist released two full length albums on the same day, and oddly, this song wasn't on the one with "Lucky" in the title.

Yes it is! I still remember the first time I heard that song, I had the transistor radio under the covers listening when I should have been asleep. I was blown away, never heard anything like it.

Well that’s Springsteen, but I never really got into him. Great artist, not for me.
