As discussed in a previous Off Topic Thread I have started this as a place to discuss all things vaguely related to Music & Lyrics, and a quiz just for good measure.

I need to start with a picture quiz so here goes - An easy peasy one to get things going.

So far, drawing a blank. The only song I remember that references James Dean doesn't have a lyric consistent with those pictures. Still thinking, though.

I'm guessing its something to do with the Oasis album Standing On The Shoulders of Giants ...but as I can't stand Oasis, I don't know the songs or lyrics

Jack and Diane - John Cougar

The lyric:
"Jack he sits back, collects his thoughts for a moment
Scratches his head, and does his best James Dean
Well, now then, there, Diane, we ought to run off to the city"

♪ Oh yeah, life goes on ♫

Seems so obvious when the answers are posted but before that I'm pretty much clueless. I haven't guessed one yet. Maybe if it were just song titles I might have a chance because while I recollect the lyrics so far, they're not so familiar that the pics bring them to mind. I might just be too literal in my thinking.

Okay - let's restrict it to song titles for the time being, I think that the huge repertoire of music knowledge between us should keep us going on the title for some time.

Never heard that song. Neither knew about John Cougar.

I'm not being critical of NG for taking his time..... ;)
So far, like Tera, I've got none of these though I had at least heard of the previous songs.
Suppose I better think up an example of my own in case I do get a future example

Can we relax the rules slighly - song or album title

No hard and fast rules here, this is the easy listening ;) lounge - Album or song title is fine.

BTW - how did the third image fit as a clue?
It's Diane from the Manga Seven Deadly Sins series, a bit obscure but I thought it would be too easy with Diane Keaton, or Princess Di.

Well at least I would have known Diane was a clue ...but in this case would have got no further anyway.
Perhaps I best leave this to those more expert than me!. Watch & learn!
