The Music Quiz

Corrected #20. Oopsie…

I am looking forward to finding out what number 2 is.

I had to Google it for curiosity’s sake… It’s far from what I expected it to be.

I thought it was the Tripping Daisy song at first but it’s not.

Clue time, cos you’ve all ground to a halt…

1: was adapted for the theme to a very popular tv show
2: from the film of the same name
4: 70s legend, 90s song
9: one for an10
13: is not the Doors
15: mostly an actor now
18: another one from a film soundtrack
20: this one might be tough, not sure we have many country music listeners on blitz (or at least in the music threads!)

Paging @Lifetime_ban

Last chance saloon time, added some more lyrics to 2, 4, 9, 13, 15, 20 in the hope they’ll help someone…

#20 dirtwire - deeper well

Huh, I’d never heard of Dirtwire or this version of the song, I was thinking of the Emmylou Harris original. Still pay it though.

I actually forgot Emmy Lou did it first. I just remember the dirtwire version, my band played it at BNS balls

Might have to lean more towards the 90s triple J stuff in future, that seems to be where the Blitz expertise lies…

2: Elvis Presley, Kissin’ Cousins (from his little-known ‘yay incest!’ phase)
4: Patti Smith - Summer Cannibals
9: The Andrews Sisters - Strip Polka (from their little-known ‘yay strippers!’ phase)
13: The Tea Party - Fire in the Head
15: Ice-T - Money Power Women
