A New Game#1
Posted: 1/22/10 at 6:20am
Since the last game i started worked so well i thought it was time we had another. It's like a team building exercise to bring us all together (apart from Sam because he smells a bit funky!). So the new game is LYRICS (everyone cheer!). I'll start the game by writing a Lyric to a song and then the last word of that lyric needs to start the next persons answer.

e.g.

Why does Saigon never sleep at night? (Miss Saigon)

... Night of a thousand stars let me take you to heavens door (Evita)

The person responding also has to guess the musical that the lyric comes from.

i realise my link was slightly terrible but with our vast knowledge we could really catch eachother out here.

so...

Remember back in seventh grade, endless games of truth or dare, double dates in dark arcades, when i close my eyes i'm there...

Yours was "all gorwn up" from Bare

So, my go...

There is wine here to revive you,
There is bread to make you strong,
There's a bed to rest till morning...

(Sorry for it being an obvious one, but not many lyrics begin with "there"!)

...morning?
And when the day is done
The sun should not rise on regrets

Regrets, I've had a few, but then again..

or perhaps- (for our French members:

regrette rien,
ni le bien qu'on m'a fait, ni le mal

Try a slightly easier one (and keep the above one for bonus points)

......applause please,
if we don't get a hand, you'll have to stand for one that's canned.

Don't go 'oh,' whenever there's a song you know,
And when you hear the verse don't whisper low.
'They cut that out of town I saw the show,
I don't recall the tempo being quite that slow'.

Ah- that's The Frogs, I believe!

Slow-ly driving them to their knees
It's gotta be some contagious disease!

............disease.
Though the finest physicians in London were called,
I awakened one morning amazed and appalled

Cheeky! Sweeney Todd- on stage, not film!

Now trying to find another lyricist who would use 'appalled'!
