The Queen's Meme #46 ~ The Song Lyrics Meme

To avoid getting thrown into a dungeon, here's my answers to this week's Queen's Meme

This week Queen Mimi has used a random word generator to find some words, and our job is to find a song that uses this word either in the title or lyrics. Here we go.

1. Want

I'll go for Avril Lavigne's punky "I Always Get What I Want" which neatly manages to sum up my niece's whole philosophy of life. I could only find live versions of it on YouTube so apologies in advance for the sound quality and dodgy camera work.

2. hell

It's got to be Meat Loaf's "Bat Out Of Hell", just because I loved the album as a teenager.

3. smack

I can only think of Prodigy's Smack Your Bitch Up, and I'm not even sure how that song goes or if it's got lyrics, so I'll pass on this one.

4. ugly

I'll go for "Ugly" by The Sugababes, which has a similar theme to Christina Aguillera's "Beautiful", despite having a diametrically-opposite title.

5. beast

I'll go for the obvious choice; the theme from my favourite animated Disney film, Beauty and the Beast.

6. Romeo

I'm tempted to go for Voice of the Beehive's frothy poppy "I'm Shooting Cupid", with its lines "Romeo and Juliet, Anthony and Cleopatra, Adam and Eve, would have been much better off if you'd left them all alone".

On the other hand, B A Robertson's "To Be Or Not To Be" has the audacity to rhyme Romeo with homey-o and also probably doesn't feature on many memes these days.

7. God

I'll go for XTC's "Dear God". Great song, great video (which I'm sure I must have posted on my blog before).

Had never heard "Dear God". What a great song. We shared Beauty and the Beast. Didn't use Bat Out of Hell, but it is one of my favorite albums. Great choices.

B.A.Robertson is sure to thank you for the plug! "Bat Out of Hell" was my first thought and so was "Beauty and The Beast." I haven't finished mine yet due to connection difficulties. I will come back and listen to the ones I don't know. Thanks for introducing me to new music today.

I never thought of Bat out of Hell until too late. Love it!
