Trivia Tuesday: What’s that song?

Posted by at 8:43 am in Music, Trivia | Permalink

A long, long time ago (but sadly not in a galaxy far, far away), I posted a trivia entry seeing if you could identify songs from their opening lines. There’s been a whole year of new songs (and old songs suddenly popular again) to dance, boogie, head-bang, and party to since then. So it’s time for another one—

Can you ID these songs (title and artist) by their opening lyrics?

  1. I hopped off the plane at LAX
    With a dream and my cardigan
  2. Just a small town girl, livin’ in a lonely world
    She took the midnight train goin’ anywhere
  3. Guess this means you’re sorry
    You’re standing at my door
    Guess this means you take back
    All you said before
  4. I make the most of all this stress
    I try to live without regrets
    But I’m about to break a sweat I’m freaking out
  5. She was more like a beauty queen from a movie scene
    I said don’t mind, but what do you mean I am the one
  6. Tonight’s the night
    Let’s live it up
    I got my money
    Let’s spend it up
  7. You’re on the phone with your girlfriend, she’s upset
    She’s going off about something that you said
    She doesn’t get your humor like I do
  8. Do you know what’s worth fighting for?
    When it’s not worth dying for?
    Does it take your breath away
    And you feel yourself suffocating?
  9. All around me are familiar faces
    Worn out places, worn out faces
  10. Don’t try to explain your mind
    I know what’s happening here
    One minute it’s love

Leave your guesses in the comments! I’ll be back next week with the answers.

Rock on!
