I tried this with Steve Miller Band's, Swingtown. Not very difficult if you can time jumping in with the "Oo oh oh oh oh oh oh oh" correctly.

I hate to give the Wisconsin Pep Band any credit, but I always like when they do this song.

I used to go to a bar in college where Piano Man would be played over and over on the juke. I got to a point where I hated it so much I would retaliate with When the Music's Over by the Doors. 11 minutes of hell for those who hate the Doors.

The OCD in me has led to well over 100 attempts at this since the thread started. Only 2 were successful, No Reply/Beatles and Elderly Woman Behind the Counter in a Small Town/Pearl Jam.

Actually, the title of the 2nd song is far more difficult to recite than the lyrics.

Props on the Zevon song, that would seem to rate high on the degree of difficulty. Plus it's really cool.

The Simon & Garfunkel song triggered another near miss, The 59th Street Bridge Song.

LG&M? Just about the easiest lyrics to memorize. Three little verses and a five-word chorus.

59th Street Bridge is a good one. Hello, Lamppost.

I guess you are right from a number of words/lines to memorize in LG&M. It seemed hard from actually memorizing the sequence of events in the story, plus not much rhyming.

I should have gone with this one from the get go, Eiffel Tower High by Husker Du. Stumbled into it yesterday after not listening it to it for a while.

This is easily my white whale in terms of songs I have never seen Bob Mould perform. Well over 40 shows...no dice. I now have a craving for a box of Junior Mints.

I’m an optimistic person but I’d need a v e r y benevolent executioner to stay alive.
Happy Birthday
Jingle Bells
The Star Spangled Banner
could get me by…I sing S O O very bad that I most likely get waved off unto the next song early enough needing just the first few lines of these songs. If, I’m lucky. Because I can’t sing I have no incentive to remember lyrics.
