A Quiz Is Not A Dinner Party

Ah, not just the hat trick, my friends, it was the Baker’s Hat trick… er… plus one. That is, two Laupers, two Madonnas, two Billy Joels, Two Stings, and two from Sir Elton John.

The missed ones:

#4 – De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da – Sting (Police)
#8 – Change Of Heart – Madame Lauper

And now, the main event. This one's all over the place. Are you ready to rumble?


Maybe he's no Romeo
But he's my loving one man show


He's a lover boy at play
He don't play by the rules
Oh oh oh
Girl don't play the fool—no


It's a losing proposition,
But one you can't refuse.
It's the politics of contraband,


I like the way your sparkling earrings lay,
against your skin, it's so brown


They're out to get you, better leave while you can
don't wanna be a boy, you wanna be a man


I can see what you want
But you seem pretty young to be searching for that kind of fun


My love for you is way out of line
Better run, girl


'Cause we're living in a world of fools
Breaking us down


If there’s a cure for this
I don’t want it
Don’t want it
If there’s a remedy
I’ll run from it
From it


Got no deeds to do,
No promises to keep.
I’m dappled and drowsy and ready to sleep.

#7 -- I wanted to say that this was by Englebert Humperdink (shows my age, I think) but Google says otherwise. I presume this came up b/c you saw / read about Donovan's recent whine-fest.

#9 -- "Love Hangover" Diana Ross

#3 -- Right former band, wrong member. Glenn Frey. Back from his Miami Vice / "I'm so buff" phase.
