Music Guessing Game: Last Chance Hints

There are still a few songs left on the music guessing game that I feel like someone should be able to get. As well as a few that nobody should be able to get. So I am posting here the final list of unguessed songs, along with an alphabetical list of artists that have not yet been guessed. If you correctly match up the artist to the song, I'll give you credit for it even if you're not really sure what the song is.

2. My heart jumps, it jumps out of my chest 'cause I love you to death.

4. Hey, you with the sorrowful gaze, you'd better start singin' the blues.

5. I've invariably found that feet kept on the ground allow the grass to grow.

6. I'm sick and tired of working in this hellhole of a place with broken glass and used-up rubbers on the ground.

8. I am a force, a source of light, I shine too bright for mere mortals.

11. This song goes out to my good friends, especially the ones I had before the Grammy nominations in 2003.

12. They be like smooth, can you teach me how to dougie?

13. Grabbed the moon, full of hope, fell to earth without rope.

18. Bohemienne, no one knows where my story begins.
(guessed by Jacob)

20. Once upon a dream, we were lost in love's embrace.

23. I just wanna be ok, be ok, be ok, I just wanna be ok today.

24. I still take you to bed, but it's the you I'd face instead.

27. Sudden changes surround me, lady luck came and found me.

28. The distant future, the year 2000.
(guessed by Bryn)

29. And now I know Spanish Harlem are not just pretty words to say.

33. Ooh, this hot summer has got me down, you can fry an egg on the street.

34. Why do I have to fly over every town up and down the line?

35. Somebody said you better let go 'cause they said so, but I could never let this thing go.

39. This is his lair, I've seen the old fox around.
(guessed by Virginia)

41. There was a time, I don't know when, I didn't have much time for men.

43. So he's holding me in his arms and he's giving me sweet little kisses.

45. Take a little walk to the end of town and go across the track.

47. I'd been searching for so many years, I was wasting all my time.

49. Two shots of happy, one shot of sad. You think I'm no good, I know I've been bad.

Anthony Rapp - he is in here twice. He only has like 11 songs on his solo album, but two of them showed up in this list. Weird.
Bowling For Soup
By Jeeves (musical)
Cali Swag District
Cyrano de Bergerac (musical)
Family Force 5
Flight of the Conchords
High Fidelity (musical)
Ingrid Michaelson
Jekyll & Hyde (musical) - there are two from this show in the list.
Les Miserables (musical)
The Life (musical)
Little Shop of Horrors (musical)
The Magic Show (musical)
Mandy Moore
Matt Dusk
Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds
Notre-Dame de Paris (musical)
Sutton Foster


  1. Wow, there are two from Jekyll and Hyde? Okay, clearly I do not remember that musical anywhere near well enough.

    1. Obviously #12 is from Jekyll and Hyde.

  2. 39 is Les Mis! I don't know the title of the track, but it's the one where M. Thenardier leads a raid on Valjean and Cosette's house, and Eponine screams to warn them.

    1. You are absolutely correct. The title of the song is something generic that describes the action, like "Thenardier's Attack" or something. I can't remember what it is exactly at the moment.

  3. #8 is from cyrano de bergerac. the song is called bring me giants. Do you have the complete lyrics for that song?

    1. Well done! I don't have the full lyrics, but I could probably transcribe them and email them to you. If you let me know what your email is, I can send them there.
