Here's something that might be interesting. Type a verse or so of a tune and see if others can guess what it is. To be fair, try to keep it limited to songs and bands that had, or have, worldwide popularity and not limited geographically.

I'll go first.

Here's the hint: Canadian Rock Band, (1981)

==================

Living in a fisheye lens,

caught in the camera eye,

I have no heart to lie.

I can't pretend a stranger is

a long awaited friend.

All the world's indeed a stage

and we are merely players,

performers and portrayers,

Each another's audience

outside the guilded cage.

The love we share

Seems to go nowhere

And I've lost my light

For I toss and turn I can't sleep at night

Here's one... should be pretty easy for anyone who liked the "WoodStock/Nam era"

--------------------

So we took the half a ton of garbage, put it in the back of a red VW microbus, took shovels and rakes and implements of destruction and headed on toward the city dump.

Oh, I like this game. I'm very good at music trivia..

how bout this stumper

I'm gonna burn right up a like a two dollar pistol,

Rocket shot to the sun.

I'm alive and I'm a drivin and I'm passing you by,

I can't stop for anyone.

I'm gonna live my life, in style for you.

another clue...

But your parents, they don't understand.

They think they're Gods.

But were all Gods.

We're everything you're parents ever warned you about.

We're all junkies.

But everybody is some kinda junkie

There's money junkies, food junkies, dope junkies, sex junkies.

'Nuff before I give it away...

Bye the way. This may be a bit obscure for someone who lives in anther part of the country. I'm not sure. The song is from the late 70's/early 80's.

ETA: Opps, that should be booze junkies instead of food junkies...Sorry, I'm hungry

Heres another while I think bout Ruthies...I know Ive heard it...ummmm

Look out of any window, any morning, any evening, any day.

Maybe the sun is shining, birds are singing,

No rain is falling from a heavy sky.

What do you want me to do, to do for you to see you through?

For this is all a dream we dreamed one afternoon, long ago.

Walk out of any doorway, feel your way, feel your way like the day before.

Maybe you'll find direction,

Around some corner where it's been waiting to meet you.

What do you want me to do, to watch for you while you are sleeping?

The please don't be surprised when you find me dreaming too.

I LOVE Alice's Restaurant! Go Arlo!! I also really dig CSN&Y, Budda, but I have to disagree with you about them being the best band ever. The best band EVER is the Beatles!! That being said, here we go:

I am he as you are he as you are me and we are all together

See how they run like pigs from a gun see how they fly

I'm crying

Sitting on a cornflake waiting for the van to come

Corporation teeshirt, stupid bloody Tuesday

Man you been a naughty boy

You let your face grow long

Ruthie--yours is a stumper...I know I've heard it before...arrgh...
