Patterico's Pontifications


Easier Quote Quiz

Filed under: General,Music — Patterico @ 9:40 am

OK, due to the negative feedback from the quote quiz earlier this morning, here is a newer quote quiz. It’s easier than the one immediately below. In this one, I am using better-known songs.

No Googling. No peeking at other comments.

Here’s your first subject. Go!

It could be made into a monster

Get on with the fascination

Somebody told me
This is the place
Where everything’s better

Remember I’ll always be true

When I feel blue in the night
And I need you to hold me tight

They say the point demons guard is
An ocean grave, for all the brave

‘Cause you need to
Be back in the arms of a good friend

Drunk in the gardens and the graves

There’s a small boat made of china
Going nowhere on the mantelpiece

Listen you
Take your hands from her head

Good luck. You should do better on this one.

  20. #10:”Is she really going out w/him?” (Joe Jackson)

    One of the most underrated musicians of the past thirty years. Couldn’t be categorized, always creative, always thoughtful, frequently hilarious. I wish I had gotten a recording contract and then cut “On Your Radio”:

    Ex-friends, ex-lovers and enemies
    I’ve got your cases in front of me today
    All sewn up
    Ex-bosses you never let me be
    I’ve got your names and your numbers filed away
    I’ve grown up

    See me, hear me
    Don’t you know you can’t get near me
    You can only hope to hear me
    On your radio, on your radio, yeah
    You’re gonna hear me on your radio
