How many songs do you know all the words to?

it's a lot, isn't it?


don't think too hard, it might explode your brain.


scary, huh? perhaps i should have worded the title 'how many full albums do you know the words to?' or something like that. or how much space would be leftover in your brain if you didn't have the lyrics to some kids song or WOWY running around in there...

I have no idea.

Theres too much other crap in my brain for me to even get to the cerebral filing cabinet marked "song lyrics".

while the songs playing or just out of the clear blue?

i seem to know all the words while the song is playing, but once it's over i can be clueless.

but i do know all the words to loads of instrumentals!

It is amazing that you can't remember someone's name or phone number but if I own an album or song, chances are I know all the words. I even know the word's to REM "End of the World".

i used to know all the words to "...end of the world...", "subteranian homesick blues" and "we didn't start the fire."

however it's been a few years since i've hosted any drunken college parties, thus i'm probably a little rusty.

I remember when I was still in school, and I would be studying for tests. When I'd be having a hard time remembering stuff, Dad would say, "How is it that you could start reciting the lyrics to any U2 song I name, but you can't remember this stuff?

that was the sort of thing i was thinking about...i've got this russian quiz tomorrow for which i've got to remember assive amounts of words, yet i can keep about 10 of them in my head while i can remember the words to beatles songs i haven't heard for a few years.

WAY too much! There's just something about songs that makes the lyrics stay in your mind...maybe it's the rhythmic thing... Uni Books should really come with background music!!!

i can sing along flawlessly to any u2 song, but that's very different from knowing all the lyrics off the top of my head and not getting screwed up on which verse is supposed to come next.. now that's a whole different feeling.

I know RTSS.. and that's it. I could probably fake my way through One, Stay, and Wake up Dead Man, but there's a good chance I'd screw up somewhere.

Besides U2, I used to know Exiles Among You by weakerthans, and i definitely still know Grace Cathedral Hill and Red Right Ankle by the Decemberists and Into My Arms by Nick Cave (mostly because I learned them on the guitar)

Hundreds? Thousands? It's a ton. So many times I hear a song I don't really like or haven't heard in forever, and I still know the words. It really is frightening.
