The upside of this is, you get to play, too!
The basic idea is this: it's a 4 Round game lasting one month. The first round begins with a couple of words from a song. Each week, more words are added to either end of the lyric snippet with a decreasing point value for getting the answer correct. Round 1=4pts, Round 2= 3pts, Round 3= 2pts, Round 4+ = 1pt.
U.S. cities are frequently name-checked in rock/pop music, so I thought it'd make a fun theme for October's lyrics game. Below are 20 songs for you to guess with a U.S. city in the lyrics. There are an additional 5 songs (21-25) which all reference New Orleans somewhere in the lyrics, since it appears to be the most referenced city in music, but not in the lines I'm using. These five New Orleans songs adhere to the classic format of this game: one word from the end of one line and one word from the beginning of the next line. Each week, I'll add one word to either side of the lyric.
Round One will be the "Shot in the Dark" round, with only the city name worth four points. You can only make ONE GUESS for each song per round, and not every song you can think of with that city in it. Some of these are probably guessable by only the mention of the city, but they span multiple genres and eras to level the playing field. A final note: if the song also contains the name of the state in the lyrics, it will be added in Round Two in addition to the new words on either side. For instance: if I were using "Take It Easy" by The Eagles, Round One would be "Winslow". Round two would be "in Winslow, Arizona and". I'll also add that, there's at least one in here that I don't expect anyone to get, it's just in there because it's one of my favorite songs, but not a well known one by that artist.
