The Queen's Meme #46 - The Song Lyrics Meme



Mimi of The Queen's Meme has sent this in....

Your job is to find a song that uses this word either in the title or lyrics. Give us the title or part of the lyric that fits and the artist. Then say a little something about the tune and why you chose it. Posting a YouTube video of the song would be great! (but not required)
Here we go.

1: Want...You're The One That I Want by John Travolta & Olivia Newton John....really catchy...a great film clip.

2:  Hell....Bat Out Of Hell by Meatloaf....the first one that came to mind, and I guess it will for many others as well.

3: Smack...Smackwater Jack by Carole King comes from my favourite album Tapestry. Excellent.

4: Ugly...The Good, The Bad & The Ugly by Hugo Montenegro....this instrumental is a classic theme.

5: Beast...Beast Of Burden by Bette Midler...I must admit I didn't know any 'beast' songs here!

6: Romeo...Romeo & Juliet/How Insensitive by William Shatner...When I saw who the singer was, I had to put this one in!

7: God...God Only Knows by The Beach Boys....a fabulous BB song.

Indeed, great minds do think alike. Very pleased to meet you, Captain.

The Bette Midler version of Beast is so fantastic! I had to laugh at the Shatner tune.

Thanks for visiting my QM!

Interesting choices. I thought of Bat Out of Hell, but had to go with Paul Williams and that great closing number.

Bat of out Hell! Good one... I never thought about that.

I can't believe I forgot Meatloaf. :-\ "God only Knows" is one of my favourites too... although it took a disconcerting turn in my head after it was used on TV as a theme song for polygamy. lol

I had no idea William Shatner had sung a song. That's a thought as mind bogling as Klingon opera. ;-)

Great answers this week.

I used Shatner too and thought of you right off! You've gotta listen. Did you?

A great meme this week. It was interesting whar some of the choices people picked.

Some great choices. I went for Meat Loaf too. Terrific choices for Ugly and God. Surprised that the William Shatner song didn't even occur to me.
