Lyrics Quiz: JFK

Lyrics Quiz for the day that's in it. You'll do well if you get more than three.

  1. I shouted out: "Who killed the Kennedys?", when, after all, it was you and me.
  2. Anybody here seen my old friend John? Can you tell me where he's gone? He freed a lot of people, but it seems the good die young.
  3. J.F.K. blown away. What else do I have to say?
  4. My mother cried when President Kennedy died. She said it was the communists but I knew better.
  5. Who's got the brain of JFK? What's it mean to us now...yeah?
  6. I was born the day they shot JFK. The way you look at me sucks me down the sidewalk. Somebody please tell this machine I'm not a machine.
  7. And then a guy in a Porsche with a radio hit his horn and told us the news. He said: "The president's dead, he was shot twice in the head in Dallas, and they don't know by whom."
  8. I wanna die just like JFK. I wanna die on a sunny day. I wanna die just like JFK. I wanna die in the USA.
  9. People got more baggage than JFK, yeah. And I'm talkin about the airport, man.

Oh, and that Dream Academy song from the other day.

One of the above songs is Lou Reed's "The Day John Kennedy Died" (yeah, right, like you would have got that one). Lou also sings:

The team from the University was playing football on TV."

JFK was shot on a Friday, early afternoon. It seems highly unlikely that any college team would be playing a game then. Lou's alma mater is Syracuse University, and their schedule for 1963 shows no game on 11/22.
