Just like L13 - Tomorrow will be too late...

I'm late. Not a whole lot left for me. I do see no one is answering the SOTW's, which is good... However, I do see that SOTW1-1 you answer your own question... "What has grown so big? Who cares?"

See you all next week!

9th Oct 2006, 15:28
OK, Honey is soppy. So? Seasons in the Sun? Would somebody like to tell me exactly why it is so universally despised? I suspect only because it has become fashionable to do so.

I have a few personal hate songs for my own reasons; I've Never Been to Me by Charlene heads the list, but really, given the overwhelming inanity of the lyrics of most pop songs, why is everyone so keen to jump on the Seasons in the Sun bandwagon? Is it cool to do so? I mean, have a listen to Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep as an example. Do I have to quote the Beatles I Wanna Hold Your Hand as another example, or can we just accept that pop music is a simple medium which occasionally rises above the dire? Musical snobbery is a most unedifying exhibition IMHO.

Probably worthy of a thread in itself actually.

BTW, Single Girl was by Sandy Posey, not Sandy Denny. :uhoh:

9th Oct 2006, 16:04
Said it before but what the hell, SITS was a soppy translation by Rod McKuen of a very powerful Jacques Brel song called Le Moribond (http://www.frmusique.ru/texts/b/brel_jacques/moribond.htm).

And Brel was a Learjet pilot so that must be a point in his favour.

10th Oct 2006, 00:35
Single Girl was by Sandy Posey, not Sandy Denny

Thanks Binos

I realised that as soon as I pushed the Submit Reply button and I've been waiting 24 hours to correct it :{

(Serves me right for only allowing two minutes for a quick go at the quiz.)

10th Oct 2006, 00:56
First post updated.

Progress Scores:

Plane Psycho - 21
Cooda - 7
Cleo - 5
Buster - 3
Ops Queen - 2
Pigboat - 2
The SSK - 1
Binos - 1

So, thats Psycho 21, the rest 21........:eek:

Can anyone catch the Memphis Belle? :E :E :E :ok: :ok:

Now, about the debate...........:hmm:

Personally, I don't mind Seasons In The Sun (or Honey, or I've Never Been to Me for that matter.....:eek: ). I used the two songs as SOTW to stir up Pigboat, and I'm sure he is playing along also.

The Quizmeisters do not promote any particular type, style or sound of music. We all have what we like and dislike (for example, I'm a huge Moody Blues, Corrs, Gordon Lightfoot, Jimmy Buffett fan, and I like music right across the range from late 50's to now) and it is each to their own.

If in doubt - rule 4..............................:hmm: :hmm: :hmm: :hmm:

10th Oct 2006, 01:07
Hey, bet they can catch me after I do this....

Seasons In The Sun by Terry Jacks :yuk: :yuk: :yuk: :yuk: :yuk: :yuk:
ok, -21? :E

10th Oct 2006, 01:09
Perfectly understood, scran. I wasn't really criticizing, I'm genuinely curious about why those two songs are always singled out from the 90% of pop music that is utter shite.

I mean I find I've Never Been to Me nauseating because I wonder what the tosser who actually wrote it (and no, I have no idea who it was) was thinking when he/she sat down and wrote such patronising crap. I've done everything baby, but don't worry, I tell you from my penthouse that your meaningless boring existence is actually better than mine. Yes it is!

Vomitously offensive. :yuk:

10th Oct 2006, 01:30
No Belle....I know you are just trying to stir me.......:rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

Now, I must ask a question without notice. With all due respect to Rule 4, and considering I'm 6'4" and know my way around CBR, my answer to Lyrics question 2 does, indeed, contain the aforementioned lyrics. Does this not earn my good self valuable points, as my lowliness in the quiz knows no bounds?

12th Oct 2006, 05:02
Buster, on reflection - yes your nomination (a song I hate Bino's) does APPEAR to fit the question. However, when taken in context of the other songs - you did not have the particular song I was after. Undoubtably - there could be a number of songs that contain that lines/words - but I applied rule 4.

Now - you say you are 6'4" and know your way around Canberra.

Having just requalified on both the Styer and 9MM Pistol, you being 6'4" will not make it much of a challenge for me - :E :rolleyes: :eek: :hmm:

Buster Hyman
12th Oct 2006, 05:36

I'll see your Steyer & 9MM...and raise you an ADD kid!

13th Oct 2006, 02:09
OK - gonna wrap this up.

Unanswered questions have been answered by me in the4 first post.

A little birdy tells me we might have another guest Quizmeister on Sunday/Monday.............:eek: :eek: :eek: :hmm:
