1980's Music Trivia!

thought it would be fun to start a few music related games/trivia. i'll start it off by posting a few lyrics from the 1980's. if you know who the artist/band is, post your answer, then start the next set of lyric trivia:

hint: released in 1983

Standing by the trapdoor aware of me and you
Are the actor and the clown they're waiting for their cue
And there's a lady over there she's acting pretty cool
But when it comes to playing life
She always plays the fool

  There's so many people to see
So many people you can check up on
And add to your collection
But they keep you hanging on
Until you're well hung
Your mouth is made up but your mind is well undone

Hint coolest guy in the 80's and a geek before his time

*1980*

I've been around for you
I've been up and down for you
But I just can't get any relief
I've swallowed my pride for you
I've lived and lied for you
But you still make me feel like a thief

 

 

I was standing in the park, wondering why frisbees got bigger as they got closer. Then it hit me.

well, I had to cheat and find the full album on iTunes, but I know it's Fishbone, so Im assuming the song is Change.  that was a toughie.

There's a gun in your hand

From 88. I was like 11 years old... Didn't listen to this then...


Not of this world
And nothing bites like I do
Nothing screams out loud
In this empty night
Nothing can keep me from you

And you think that you know
The reason I'm alive
Truth is you only
Know the lies

Danzig - Not of this world

 

 

Think early 80's metal 

When there's lightning
You know it always brings me down
Cause it's free and I see that it's me
Who's lost and never found
I out for magic
I feel it dancing in the light
It was cold, lost my hold
To the shadows of the night

Yeah, sorry mine was too easy

Isn't that a Dio song? Maybe Rainbow or whatever? I'm not a Dio fan...
