Rock And Roll Triva

Different rules this time out. I don't give you the lyrics, I give you a clue to the song and you have to guess what it is without Google.

1. I live on the second floor.

2. The policemen know my name.

3. I'm on a losing streak.

4. Just like children, I'm getting older.

5. The dude I liked wouldn't tell me his name.

6. I gave my guns to my mom.

7. Look, motherfucker, if it glitters, it's gold.

8. I know where I'm gonna go when I die.

9. For some unknown reason I find it difficult to get people to serve me tea instead of coffee when I'm in New York. It could be because of where I'm from. It could be because I'm a douchebag.

10. Look, I told you already, this is not a rebel song!

#2 is the one nobody is getting. Imagine if you woke up in a doorway in SoHo after a big drunken night out. How would you be able to get home without being arrested...

1. Luka
8 Spirit in the sky?
9. Englishman in NY
Awesome!
1. Suzanne Vega - 'Luka'
3. Rolling Stones - 'Satisfaction'
7. not sure, something by Tribe Called Quest ?
10. poss U2 - a live version of 'Sunday Bloody Sunday'?
I guessed the same for (10), and now I need to know the answer, because Google isn't helping!
Sunday Bloody Sunday.
Yeah, I've just never heard it introduced that way. I've seen them live a few times, and I heard "This is not a rebel song", just not the extended version of that :->
Well, they don't say it the way I say it. They usually just say "this is not a rebel song" - but they've been saying that for years, so I was making a joke clue.
Aaaah, gotcha :->
Almost none of these are actual lyrics. They are lyric clues.
Awesome on 1, 3 and 10.

I can't for the life of me think of the track for #7 Grrrr.
Stairway To Heaven.
ah, I get you - now it all makes sense :)
Yeah. It's a little different this time around - just to mix things up a bit.

Most of these are really, really popular songs that you can probably logic out.
In fact they are probably the 10 most commonly played songs on classic rock radio.
To add to the others, #4 - Landslide?
#7 is not Allstar, is it?
You are right on 4 and wrong on 7.
1. My name is Puke-a
2.
3. Was tempted to go with "Satisfaction" but instead going with "Born in the USA"
4. CSNY Parent's song Cat's in the Cradle
5.
6.
7. Tubthumbers
8.
9. Sting Englishman in NY
10.
Satisfaction.
6. Knocking on Heaven's Door?
Yep!
I'm going to say #4 is "Landslide," and #5 is "I Love Rock and Roll" ("That don't matter," he said, "'cause it's all the same"); #6 is "Knockin' On Heaven's Door".
And you are awesome and right.
1. Luka

2. Uh?

3. The Gambler?

4. The White Winged Dove song

5. I love Rock n Roll

6. A Nirvana song

7. Stairway to Heaven

8. Highway to Hell

9. For some unknown reason I find it difficult to get people to serve me tea instead of coffee when I'm in New York. It could be because of where I'm from. It could be because I'm a douchebag. I have no idea but that's hilarious.

10. Sunday Bloody Sunday
Close on 4.

Spot on on 1, 5, 7 and 10.
I answered number 4. Look up.
#2 was the easiest one.
The next line i heard in my head instantly-"he said 'you can go sleep at home tonight, if you can get up and walk away' "
The Who - Who Are You? The only one I know, actually.
Thats it!
Yep.
1= Luka (Suzanne Vega)
6 = Knockin' on Heaven's Door
9 = An Englishman in New York (Sting)
10 =(not) This Is A Rebel Song (Sinead O'Connor)
How is #1 not giving us lyrics? :P

I love this idea. :)
Who's that by?
I looked up number 4 I don't thing I've heard it or that sting song.
