5...Time Warp - Rocky Horror Picture Show ?

Arm out the window
12th May 2003, 15:54
Arr..I think the Time Warp starts out with 'astounding' not 'outstanding'.

That's not a bad idea though, a thread on 'What if they had a bad day writing the lyrics to...',
eg say 'Blowin' in the wind' for example - "How many beers must a man throw down...etc"

Arm out the window

Lyrics

6. Artist - Exile?

Ozzy
14th May 2003, 09:15
Hi scran Cliff's a singer songwriter, he's not that well known but he tours regularly. I guess he sung the song but didn't fit the super group clue...or red herring?:uhoh:

Ozzy

scran
14th May 2003, 09:58
Reynolds - Yes it was Exile.....so we now have joint leaders......:ok: :ok:


And no Ozzy - the "Supergroup" clue was not a red herring...:E


I'd give another clue...but with the winning of the quiz in the balance between you and Reynolds..............:suspect: :suspect:

scran
14th May 2003, 14:08
OK...what if I give the next line for Lyric 10


Ev´ry time I see your face,
It reminds me of the places we used to go.



Does that help? :E :E :E

CoodaShooda
14th May 2003, 14:30
No it doesn't.

I've had the blurry words and tune going through my mind since you posted the quiz but the title and artist remain a blank.

Time to downgrade memory capacity to 60% :ugh:

scran
14th May 2003, 15:10
What if I added the next two lines as well Cooda.....

Ev´ry time I see your face,
It reminds me of the places we used to go.
But all I got is a photograph
And I realise you're not coming back anymore.

An ex-member of a supergroup who has not been on the charts for a while - has a beautiful actress wife - c'mon........:E :E :E


You guys will kill yourselves when you find out........:uhoh: :uhoh:

Ozzy
14th May 2003, 22:16
aha

10. Photograph, Ringo Starr

Ozzy

CoodaShooda
14th May 2003, 22:40
Ahhh...that makes me feel better.
Ringo's been off the scene for so long its no wonder he didn't register in either short or long term memory.
(but of course, the music lingers on)

Gotta get out the old box of punch cards to get him back in focus.:O

scran
15th May 2003, 07:52
Well done Ozzy - we have a winner..........................


(Cooda - heard it played on the "Good Time Oldies" station I referred to yesterday a couple of weekends ago.......:p )

See you next week with 314.......and blame Cooda for the Lyrics questions.......:uhoh: :uhoh: :uhoh: :uhoh: :uhoh:
