Someone started something similar to this on the Nexus Book Club, and I thought it might be kind of fun to start something similar here.

See if you can guess which song these lyrics are from. No Internet searches. You have to search your mind for the answer.

You must guess the title and the artist correctly to win.

The first person that gets it right then gets to post the next lyrics line for everyone else to guess. If you are 100% certain you got it right, you do not need to wait for the original poster to say so. Go ahead and post your next challenge if you are positive you got it.

Keep it clean, and keep it reasonably accessible, nothing too off-the-beaten-path. But don’t make it too easy either. Example: Rainy days and Mondays always get me down, is way too easy.

Also, if any challenge is posted that remains unanswered – that turns out to be too difficult and remains unanswered for a long time, that turn will be forfeited and I will start the next quiz.

Also, every time you start a new challenge, be sure to reply only to the original post, and not to a previous comment. This will allow for more responses directly under each challenge.

So here’s the first lyrics challenge:

“Well I woke up this morning and I got myself a beer.”

Any clue?

Actually it's the singing style that doesn't appeal to me. The voice is alright.

I have to admit I didn't pay much attention to the lyrics. I don't understand spoken English as well as I do when it's written, for the simple reason that I mostly learned English while surfing the net and reading technical literature (I've been a software engineer for 15 years). I've rarely been in a situation where I had to speak English since I left school.
You're lucky you don't have to spell my real first name then ;-)

Don't know Tina Arena, although I've heard the name. I'm pretty clueless when it comes to mainstream contemporary/pop music, I'm more a classical-lyrical-jazz-world-experimental aficionado. And when I write "world", I mean traditional music, I'm not that fond of the relatively recent trend which mixes 'exotic' harmonies with synths and 4/4 pop beats.

OK, that was Zappa. The title is "I don't wanna get drafted". Your turn.
I guess it's always easy for those who know... :-P

Maybe this quote is a bit short?

(Btw, looking back at the thread, I realized that every time I guessed the answer (or part of it) right, it was because of pure coincidences. Could you people submit quizzes about songs I actually listen to? What, no French chanson? ;-))
No clue. 60/70, still going strong... The Beatles?
Gawd you people stump me. I've no idea.
"Gene Jeanie," by David Bowie?
I guess we're all going to give up. I can't figure it out. I guess you should just tell us.
Sorry, I've never listened to Christina Aguilera in my life. :P

Don't hold back for me or anyone else. If you know it, guess it.
I don't. You people are too hard for me.
Bill Haley?
Good Mike. Since you just joined us, please be sure to start your quiz by replying to the original post, not one of the comments above.
Once again, I'm clueless.
