Lyrics.
« on: March 22, 2013, 05:52:10 AM »
I recently helped a mate work on some questions for a club quiz night. He wanted something original, so we came up with the idea of lyrics to songs used in films. >41< Some of the questions are listed below, so see if you can answer from which song are the lyrics from, and in which film did they appear...

1.  Who knows what tomorrow brings, In a world, few hearts survive
      All I know is the way I feel, When it's real, I keep it alive.... Up Where We Belong. Officer and a Gentleman.



2.  Revvin' up your engine, Listen to her howlin' roar.
     Metal under tension, Beggin' you to touch and go.... Danger Zone. Top Gun.


3. It must have been cold there in my shadow, To never have sunlight on your face.
    You were content to let me shine, that’s your way. You always walked a step behind..... Wind Beneath My Wings. Beaches.



4. Out of the ruins
    Out from the wreckage
    Can't make the same mistake this time
    We are the children
    The last generation
    We are the ones they left behind..... We Don't Need Another Hero. Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome.


5. I walked her home and she held my hand,
    I knew it couldn't be just a one-night stand.
   So I asked to see her next week and she told me I could.... Something Good. Naked Gun.


6.  Caroline laughs and it's raining all day, She loves to be one of the girls.
     She lives in the place in the side of our lives, Where nothing is ever put straight.


7.  Will you stand above me? Look my way, never love me.
     Rain keeps falling, rain keeps falling, Down, down, down.... Don't You Forget About Me. Breakfast Club or Futurama Episode 'Luck of the Fryrish.'


8.  If our love song
    Could fly over mountains,
    Could laugh at the ocean,
    Just like the films..... Absolute Beginners. Absolute Beginners.


9.  How can you see looking through those tears? Don't you know you're worth your weight in gold?
     I can't believe that you're alone in here, Let me warm your hands against the cold.... Live it Up.Crocodile Dundee.


10. Show no fear, For she may fade away.
      In your hands, The birth of a new day.


All the films date from the C20th, and in a couple of cases the song title is also the title of the film. My mate told me that the questions were so popular that only two led to disputes and fist fights. >103<

No 5 - the song is "Something Good" by Herman's Hermits, but I'm afraid I don't know the film it was in!  ;)
