obscure (themed!) guess-the-lyrics

No, I don't know why. Because my brain is weird.

If you can identify more than one of these, you can probably also tell what they have in common. Some of them are quite obscure, though, so I'm not counting on it (indeed, I'm not sure even Chad will get all six, and we share a music collection).

  1. I know I look tired, but everything's fried here in Memphis.
  2. What five letters spell "apocalypse"?
  3. I have dreamed of a black car that shimmers and drives down the length of the evening to the carnival side.
  4. Well don't you remember, they put a patch on your eye; like Dread Pirate Roberts, you looked so unplanned.
  5. Forget about your ego, forget about your pride, and you will never have to compromise.
  6. You missed a spot over there.

(Feel free to i.d. by providing additional quotes from the same song, if it amuses you more, or to add lyrics from other songs that fit the theme.)

Minor corrections made to #1 and #3 after double-checking.

(5.) Hee. Indeed.

...and you've song virused me with it. :P Oh well, I like it.

2. Double-u double-u ay yi yi!

2. Correct!

(It was that or "fusion was the broken heart that's lonely's only thought," and (a) it's not quite right for the theme and (b) I hold a grudge against it because it's so frickin' hard to sing.)

4. I woke her up twice in the middle of the night / asked what her name is and where she might live.

I know I know number 5, too, but I can't place it! Argh!

4. Correct!

"I was born on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay but Maryland and Virginia have faded away"

Full disclosure: I wasn't quite, it was the banks of the Potomac, but the second line is almost true. True enough to really like that song, anyway.


3. Correct! (I nearly used that one instead, good choice.)

#6 is about lusting after your girlfriend's mom, so I'm glad I don't recognize the others. (Or more likely it's not a unique lyric.)

Yes, but that's not what they have in common.
