For those not following me (shame on you!) on FB, here's the latest Lyrics Quiz.

It's been a little while, so the idea is: Name the song, singer, and link between the songs. Here there are two groups, which are loosely related between them, and closely related within each group. No google, etc. Post your answers, as you get 'em. Yadda Yadda.

1) You made me promise to marry you, I made you promise to be my bride

2) I was wrong, now I find, Just one thing makes me forget

3) You’re the Starch in my collar, you’re the lace in my shoe.

4) Searching for my lost shaker of salt. Some people claim that there's a woman to blame, But I know it's nobodys fault

5) When the breeze blows 'cross the farmyard, You can smell the cow sheds too.

6) I can teach you, but I have to charge.

7) Till some stupid with a flare gun, He burned the place to the ground

8) The brim of my hat hides the eye of a beast, I've the face of a sinner but the hands of a priest

9) Tis sweeter farre then suger fine, And pleasanter than muskadine

10) If the life I live don't kill me Then I guess I'll never die

11) Looking good not looking back, Knight of hers took her off to dance

12) And now I know what they mean- you’re a love machine!

13) He says he’s only human, So he still lights up with old flames, As if to try and prove it.

14) Seeing her skin feeling silky smooth, Color of Café au Lait.

15) Something’s happening here today, A show of strength with your Boy’s Brigade

16) It’s getting hard to be someone, but it all works out- it doesn’t matter much to me.

17) I said, "Doctor ain't there nothing I can take", I said, "Doctor, to relieve this belly ache?"

18) And if you needed a dream to keep you smiling, I’d tell the Sandman you were blue.

19) I’m never gonna let you down, Never make you wear no frown.

20) He told me several times that he didn’t like my kind, Cos I was a bit too leisurely.

Surely to sign up to Facebook and abandon all claim to privacy would be the shame? ;-)

Anyways... not doing too good at this set...

6. Milkshake, Kelis
7. Smoke On The Water, Deep Purple

14. Lady Marmalade, ?
15. Eton Rifles, The Jam
17. Milk and Alcohol, Dr. Feelgood (bit of a guess!)
19. Never Gonna Give You Up, Rick Astley

I'm seeing possible links to do with breakfast and conserves, but nothing completely convincing.

6, 7, 14, 15, correct,
17 and 19 not!

9 is "Watkin's Ale", a naughty little Elizabethan ballad, and the only recording of it I know of is by the City Waites (although I sing it myself rather often.)
17 is "Lime In The Coconut", sung by many people but probably best known is Harry Belafonte.
20 is Prince's "Raspberry Beret"

All I can think of to connect them is food and drink.

Indeed so for all 3.

And you might want to rephrase the link, but fundamentally right!
