Music Quiz 12

A slightly new look to the Quiz from now on. There will only be 15 Lyrics questions rather than 20, but I have added a new section – Song of the week. Each week, a specific song will be featured, with questions either from the lyrics or trivia about that song. Hope you enjoy the new style!

a. Questions posted today.
b. Original Artist preferred. Cover versions may be accepted, however.
c. Judges decision final.
d. If any doubts, see rule d!
e. For Lyrics – 2 points for title or artist, 5 if you get both. For trivia, 1 point (but some will allow a bonus point for additional information) For song of the week, 1 point per question unless advised.

(For everyone’s enjoyment, please don’t post until you have a significant number of answers)

Lyrics Questions (Note – clue is first line or lines of the song)

1. “Don’t know why I’m surviving every lonely day”
2. “Well no-one told me about her”
3. “Right before my very eyes”
4. “When the night returns just like a friend”
5. “You told me I was the one”

Cooda - Me a CW music man??? NO WAY!!!!! I had to put up with it for 2 weeks solid while in the States a while back, and that cured me for life!! Any CW questions etc that appear in the quiz come from Scranette#1, who was the perp of the CW in the States.

So sorry Cooda, I can't place that song. Scranette#1 seems to think it's Pancho and Lefty by Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard.

Now Jolly, Scranette#2 is an ex-BSB fan, and has the video about the making of the Everybody clip, which is where I got my info. C'mon, fess up - how did you know the answer? :rolleyes: :eek:

While I do have the dreaded Quiz 13 ready, if you want to post an interim one this week, please be my guest. Can't promise I'll have time to play - don't you hate it when work gets in the way??:eek: :D

If not before, see you all next monday for Quiz 13!:p:confused:

3rd Apr 2002, 01:11
Hmmmm....scran, congratulations you've just disproved the theories on subliminal conditioning :)

Two weeks on the road and continual exposure to Scranette#1's influence and you still hold firm to your values :D

Your brains trust got it - although I prefer the Emmy Lou Harris version :p

We'd better amend the rules to include Scranettes and CoodaKids with banned sources like Google etc :D :D

Catchya next week.
