The Music Quiz


Thanks for bringing back one of the great threads Swoodley.

  1. Stars - Better Look After Yourself


I’ve been thinking about bringing it back for ages.
Started a couple, didn’t finish them.
You need a theme, I reckon (as this one certainly has…I think mostly?).

  1. Loose Windscreen. Blinded by the Light

  1. Out of Touch - Hall & Oates

  1. You Can’t Take It With You - Paul Kelly


Yeah…I’ve been thinking about for ages too.,finally got my ■■■■ together :wink:

No theme…unless you count the fact that they were songs I was listening to on my iPod yesterday


hahaha…I see what you did there…and I’ll give it to you as he did indeed write the song…although I was thinking of Manfred Mann’s version as that was the one I heard yesterday when I was making the list


Sorry…not the right song or artist :frowning:


Thought I picked up a bit of a war theme towards the beginning.

  1. Badlands - The Boss / Springsteen.


Just a bit of a bump for the remaining songs

Clue 1. He was the wizard of a thousand kings / And I chanced to meet him one night wandering /He told me tales, and he drank my wine /Me and my magic man kinda feelin’ fine

Clue 7. My girl Friday, she no square / She like lotus blossom in her hair / Be-bop records and something new / Sometimes borrowed, but she’s never blue

Clue 10. can i touch you are you out of touch / i guess i never noticed that much / geranium lover i’m live on your wire / come and take me who ever you are

Clue 11. Well, he sits up there on his leatherette / Looks through pictures of the ones that he hasn’t had yet / When he thinks he wants a closer look / he gets out his little black telephone book

Clue 12. was talking with a friend of mine / said a woman had hurt his pride / Told him that she loved him so / and turned around and let him go

Clue 14. And so she woke up / Woke up from where she was / Lying still / Said I gotta do something / About where we’re going

Clue 18. Mindless drifter on the road / (why do I) / Carry such an easy load / (why do i)
