Because the columns are displayed in random order, sometimes the topmost lyrics form a kind of zen poetry. Samples:
I'm sitting in a railroad station / On a downtown train / I met up with the gambler / Somehow I'm neither here nor there.
On a warm summer's evening / There's a train a comin' / A chugga-chugga motion / It's just the same.

Third column should say just a CITY boy, not small town.

for some reason, this is not working for me at all. even when I KNOW i am picking the right combination of lyrics...

I kid you not, Long Train Runnin' was playing on the radio just as I started this.

Rockgulf - this one is not working on IE currently. I know you've fixed that before on another quiz

I'd be interested in anyone who has an idea for a similar lyric quiz on a different subject. Give me the theme & and a few suggestions and I'll give you credit.

There are a couple of songs you could add: One After 909 by the Beatles and 5:15 by the Who. You could always continue the transportation theme. There are plenty of songs about cars (especially), airplanes (Jet Airliner, , Leaving on a Jet Plane, Snoopy vs. Red Baron), or boats (Edmund Fitzgerald Banana Boat Song, Brandy, Rock the Boat, Red Sails in the Sunset, Gilligan's Island Theme, Love Boat Theme) even Spaceships (Space Oddity, Major Tom, Come Sail Away, Starship Trooper).

@Ballabosh: This quiz has enough scrolling already, without your (very good) selections. And although I didn't want to limit the topics to transportation, space travel seems interesting. I've thought of 14 songs, including yours, to fit the category, but nearly all of them are from the 1970s. It's like we collectively lost interest in space shortly after last moon landing.

I didn't mean you should include all forms of transport, but you could take one like you did with trains. And yeah, our cosmic fascination kind of died with the hippies. I'll see if I can think of any post 70s.
May 2nd, 2013 at 02:57 GMT
OK, here's some more. Some you may have already and some are still from the 70s, but most aren't. Rocket Man - Elton John, Fly Me To the Moon - Frank Sinatra, Eight Miles High - The Byrds, Jet Boy - New York Dolls, Walking on the Moon - The Police, The Final Countdown - Europe, We're All Made of Stars - Moby (maybe not really about space travel), Songs About UFOs - Husker Du (maybe a bit obscure), Bikini Red - Screaming Blues Messiahs (maybe way obscure). I'd include Telstar by the Tornados, but it's an instrumental.
