Lyrics Quiz: Star

In honour of the new Starflyer 59 album that came in the mail today, a star-related Lyrics Quiz.

  1. "You have never been in love until you've seen the stars reflect in the reservoirs."
  2. "And it hung in the sky like a star, just like a star."
  3. "I know a place where we can dance the whole night away, Underneath the electric stars."
  4. "Blue, blue windows behind the stars, Yellow moon on the rise."
  5. "Just before our love got lost, you said I am as constant as a northern star and I said, Constantly in the darkness, where's that at?"
  6. "Far. We've been traveling far, Without a home, But not without a star."
  7. "One can wish upon a star. Two can make that wish come true."

Hints for those what needs them: You could guess #1's writer from the distinctive style - teenage romanticism meets humdrum reality. #2 is a Christmas-related song. #3 frequently pops up on '80s Lyrics Quizzes. #4 - well, I always have one or three songs by #4. #5 comes from the same country as #4. #6 has the same first name as #4. #7 is a duet.
