Quiz ... Thanks for the Idear, Xtreme!

Okay ... so I've caught the quiz bug from Xtreme . Here's the deal, I have painstakingly typed out lyrics from some of my music repatoire. Whoever can figure out the song/artist/group ... whatevs ... wins! What do you win, you may ask?? My respect and admiration for being so damned kool and having a varied and vast music appreciation. (My money is on Eyvi, since her musical taste is fairly similar to mine ... but Spot seems to live inside my head sometimes ... so not so sure ... PS - speaking of ghost stories... is it terribly scary in there, Spot???)

Here goes:

 1) Throwing out the blame when you know it ain't my fault
Messing with my brain when you want to see me fall

2) I got me a car, it's as big as a whale and it's about to set sail ... I got me a car, it seats about 20 so hurry up and bring your juke box money

3) I've got a freaky old lady, name o'Cocaine Katie who emroiders all my jeans

4) So you run and you run to catch up with the sun, but it's sinking

5) Take another shot of courage wonder why the right words never come you just get numb

6) Ok, here we go, we got a real pressure cooker going here, two down, nobody on, no score,
bottom of the ninth, there's the wind-up and there it is, a line shot up the middle, look at him go. This boy can really fly!

7) Toss me a cigarette, I think there's one in my raincoat" - "We smoked the last one an hour ago"
So I looked at the scenery, she read her magazine ... And the moon rose over an open field

8) Images of sorrow, pictures of delight - things that go to make up a life
9) you said "wouldn't it be a shame if I knew how great I was five minutes before I died i'd be filled
with such regret before I took my last breath" and I said "you're willing to tell me this now
and you're not going to die any time soon"

10) Come on down to the mermaid cafe and I will buy you a bottle of wine
And well laugh and toast to nothing and smash our empty glasses down

Alrighty roo ... email your answers to and I will award the person with the most correct answers with my undying admiration ... no cheating, bitches!!

Danica~ I only know two off the top of my head! I will have to think on the others. As for whether or not your head is a scary place...sometimes girl. Sometimes. But I'm not sure whether it's me or you. Lol.

I also only recognize 2 but gimme a while and maybe more will push through the pudding that is my brain. Cool Idea for a blog.

I would like you to note that I'm only playing because I'm awesome and not because you yelled at me.

2. Love Shack.

That is all.

Danica Dragonfly said...

COME ON ... you can't tell me you didn't like angry kitty - Dude ... it's angry kitty.

You are right ... #2 is Love Shack

Here are some hints ... there is a Floyd song in there ... some Simon & Garfunkle ... some Eagles awesomeness ...

Okay - fine ... don't play with me then. *sigh* I'll post the answers tomorrow.

Heh. I'm at work and I can't really email from here... but I can use initials! You'll know if I'm right, but others won't get it! Necessarily. Except that they're boldy and I feel like that means somebody already got them. #6 and #9? Probably already got, right? well, on the off chance I'm wrong, here are my initial-i-fied answers:
#5-PF-CN (? total guess, based on your hint.)
#9-AM-IWH (my favorite album ever, by the way).

There. Now stop yelling!

#2 - Love Shack, Baaaiiibbbbeeeee

#3 - OH how I love thee Dr. Hook, let me count all the ways.

#4 & 5 Dunno
#6 - Paradise By The Dashboard Light - Picture me, approx 6 yrs old, standing on the coffee table, Dad's mic in my hand screaming "Lemme sleep on it! Will you love me forever?" Because my parents are awesome!
# 7 & 8 - I dunno

#9 - Alanis
#10 -Joni Mitchell - But I don't remember the name of the song....googling (can I do that if I know the artist? You aren't going to kill me, are you?) Carey?
