Quiz
After having a lovely 4-ish mile run with boglin earlier, I'm going to indulge in some Ice Cream. But first, for the four or five people who care, the answers to the lyric quiz.
  1. The winner was pax_draconis with 11 points out of 15, but that included half a mark for "Isn't this something bad, metal and 80's?" for Alice Cooper

  2. No one got Anastacia (not surprising to me)

  3. Next least well known was Chumbawamba as no-one got it totally right. barrettyman got the group right - but possiblly because it was in my car CD player a lot when I drove him to work

  4. Most well known was Tainted Love, followed by Poison

Other scores were:
  1. lupercal - 10.5

  2. ghatanothoa - 9.5

  3. jessie_pup - 7.5

  4. kmfdmchik - 7

  5. barrettyman - 6

  6. boglin - 5.5

  7. uberredfraggle - 3.5

  8. =ant_girl - 3

  9. =ikkleblacktruck - 3

  5. Your mouth, so hot, Your web, I'm caught, Your skin, so wet - Alice Cooper: Poison

  6. Don't touch me please, I cannot stand the way you tease - Gloria Jones/Soft Cell/Marilyn Manson/Skinny Puppy/etc.: Tainted Love

  7. Music that triggers some kind of respone - Chemical Brothers: Music:Response

  8. I am thirty, male, common white trash, standing in line, with my pockets full of cash - KMFDM: Money

  9. If they come to ethnically cleanse me, will you speak out? Will you defend me? - PWEI: Ich Bin Ein Auslander

I knew I should have known no. 15 - one of Alex's first CDs. Honest! (If I did a lyrics quiz, you wouldn't get any of mine...)

As it turns out, there's maybe 3 there I could have got if I'f thort really, really hard about it...

but but but

*cough splutter* but that clearly shows that I should have got 9.5 after all i did get nin (if the wrong song (although the right album (which is kinda embarrasing as i used that phrase on a flyer once))).... and and and...
and I definately deserve bonus points for getting both the sisters of mercy and the sisterhood with the colours quote (which definately isnt the same as naming different bands who have done covers cos its the same artist doing his own song under two different band names...) and... and... and...

and I'm not bitter about scoring less than Lupercal at all...
nope, not me....
Thats some other bitter person...
definately not me...

stupid songs some of them anyway :)

Re: but but but

If that's a request for a recount I'll do it...

Re: but but but

You're right. I'd not marked you correctly. Transposition error and I've shot the clerk I employed to do the addition.

I'll tell you what - tell me who the vocalist is on the Sisterhood album before lupercal does and you can consider your reputation as a bigger muso than him preserved.

Interestingly I would have said "Sisterhood" over "Sisters Of Mercy", but partly because I prefer the vocalist.

Hmm, better give you the full list

Alan Vega did the majority of it.
Patricia Morrison obviously did a bit as well
Lucas Fox did the gun stats on Finland..
erm and James Ray? did a bit on colours.

Tada

Re: Hmm, better give you the full list

James Ray is the one I always think of - but then that's because I've seen him live also and he was actually quite good.

I think you're crown is safe ;-)

I didn't bother - hecause I knew I'd have got a crap score.

Proof of the pudding, #4, and 1/2 of #13 would have been about my limit, sans Google. My only disappointment was missing #11.

What's worse is htat even with the answers, 2/3 still mean nothing to me.

Oh, Vienna.
