You Couldn't Hit the Broad Side of a Quiz

Avast* there, ye takers of quizzes!

I don’t know the parody that Camera Obscura is talking about, but if it has anything to do with counting road-kill, I’m all for it. Hey, it’s not for nothing that I grew up in the sticks…

Problem children from yesterday:

#4 – Effigy, the Ministry

#7 – Amadeus, Falco – Actually, I do remember a parody about a danish…

Extra jumbo sized points for the trans-lingual luckybuzz and her grasp of Nena’s 99 Red Balloons. I thought the Captain Kirk thing might throw you guys off. I certainly didn’t remember it… Hmmm… maybe I should do more foreign language ones :)

To the new quiz! Excelsior!


You've lied your last lie
And I've cried my last cry
I'm out the door, babe
There's other fish in the sea


Summer turns me upside down
Summer summer summer
It’s like a merry-go-round

#2 – Um… Ew…

I guess I must be dumb
’cause u had a pocket full of horses
Trojan and some of them used


I bought you drinks, I brought you flowers
I read you books and talked for hours


Wearin' next to nothing
Cause it's hot as an oven


So you say I got a dirty mind,
I'm a mean go getter


I remember the way that we touched
I wish I didn’t like it so much


My story's infinite
Like the Longines Symphonette it doesn't rest


I feel safest of all
I can lock all my doors
It's the only way to live


We slip through the streets
While everyone sleeps
Getting bigger and sleeker
And wider and brighter


As Rose collects the money in the canister
Who comes sliding down the banister?


*Microsoft Word doesn’t know this word. I guess it’s true that Bill Gates hates pirates…

Camera Obscura said...

Atchafalaya did "Watch Out, Armadillos!" It starts out with a voice-over that says something like, "In 1955 the final stretch of I-10 was opened. Five minutes later the first armadillo was hit."

And of course there are the several versions of "Dr. Zaius"; most people remember the Simpsons' musical Planet of the Apes.

Excelsior!? I haven't heard anybody say that since Bullwinkle.

I've been beaten to everything I knew--which wasn't much today--but I can't stop by without visiting the quiz. Hi, Quiz!
