Here are some lines from songs. See if you can name them. You should include the artist name in your answer, even though the artist names do not appear as part of the rebus.


bozo,pennywise|       iu       |hamill,romero


$u(me) = em \approx record$


u+99, i+(i     i), u+GGG, i+#|


These are listed in chronological order by release date.


I have updated #1 to make it easier.
I have updated #2 just for fun.
I have updated #3 to be a closer representation of the lyrics of the song.

    $\begingroup$ On a semi related note: 99 problems, the official song of puzzling? $\endgroup$ Jul 17, 2015 at 17:38
  • $\begingroup$ Foes that wanna make sure my question's closed? :( $\endgroup$ Jul 17, 2015 at 17:43
  • $\begingroup$ The third one reminds me of Problem by Ariana Grande… I have no idea why. $\endgroup$

Partial answer.


Weezer's "Hash Pipe".


you've got your problems (99 of them, here. lol)

i+(i i)

I've got my eyes wide


You've got your big G's


I've got my hash pipe

  • $\begingroup$ This one took a second, because although "99 problems" was wrong, it's a good clue. $\endgroup$ Jul 17, 2015 at 19:44

    $\begingroup$ I upvoted these three answers, but marked this one with the check as it was the hardest of the three to solve (as expected). See #1 and #2. $\endgroup$ Jul 17, 2015 at 19:45

    $\begingroup$ Also, I'm pretty sure the line is "I've got my eyes wide", but you got the gist of it anyway. $\endgroup$ Jul 17, 2015 at 19:47
  • $\begingroup$ Hmm. It's different to different sources, but "I've got my eyes wide" makes a hell of a lot more sense given the subject of the song. $\endgroup$ Jul 17, 2015 at 20:41

Stuck in the Middle With You by Stealers Wheel


Clowns to the left of me, Jokers to the right, Here I am, stuck in the middle with you.


Bozo and Pennywise are clowns (on the left) , Hamill and Romero (on the right) are actors who played The Joker And I (me) is in the middle stuck to U (you)

    $\begingroup$ You've got the song right, but there are more lyrics in the first rebus. $\endgroup$ Jul 17, 2015 at 19:23
  • $\begingroup$ @IanMacDonald Oups. Edited. $\endgroup$ Jul 17, 2015 at 19:35
  • $\begingroup$ Lol that simultaneous edit :) $\endgroup$
