Why Don't You Come Up and Quiz Me Sometime?

Well, I guess that was too easy for you guys. Only miss was a curve ball I threw in at the end - It was Kate Bush with "Heads We're Dancing." It's a sweet little ditty about dancing with Hitler. Ah, Kate, you wacky little crazy women. Hey, Be happy. I could have used the song where she sings pi.
Honestly, I'm just happy that there are still a few of you that still have me in your feed reader :) I'm still a day or two away from putting together any real posting (or photos - but I have been taking some!), but as I'm listening to a bunch of tunes, I feel that I should share in quiz format. Aren't I cool like that?

hmm... Lots of repeats though. I'm not too sure what to do about that though. Ah, well.

They sat on the stony ground
And he took a cigarette out
And everyone else came down
To listen.
A bullet had found him
His blood ran as he cried
No money could save him
So he laid down and he died
Till now I always got by on my own
I never really cared until I met you
And now it chills me to the bone
and all my instincts, they return
and the grand facade, so soon will burn
without a noise, without my pride
I reach out from the inside
He didn't know the night would end up in frustration.
He'd end up blowing all his wages for the week.
All for a cuddle and a peck on the cheek.
Still looking for that blue jean, baby queen
Prettiest girl I ever seen
See her shake on the movie screen, Jimmy Dean
And oh the wonder
We felt the lightning
And we waited on the thunder
Waited on the thunder
She said, "Look, what's your game?
Are you tryin' to put me to shame?"
I said "Slow, don't go so fast, don't you think that love can last?"
She said, "Love, Lord above,
now you're tryin' to trick me in love."
We're doing what we can
But when you want money
for people with minds that hate
All I can tell is brother you have to wait
I know where beauty lives
I've seen it once, I know the warmth she gives
The light that you could never see
It shines inside, you can't take that from me

Ooo, too late to grab the ones I knew, #4 and #8.

But really I'm here for something else - Overread, would you email me with your address? I have a gift for you, from that gift meme that was going around. E-me at to collect. :) Happy holidays!
