Post Music Quiz 46

"I feel the need.........the need for speed!!!!!"


Rules: (with thanks to Jolly – adapted from his)

1. Questions posted on Monday – time at my discretion. Answers posted on Friday or whenever quiz complete/I feel like it.
2. 2 points for each correct answer to Lyrics questions. 1 point will be awarded for answers that contain part of the answer – ie, song correct but wrong artist. The 2nd point will be awarded to the first person to “fill in the gaps”.
3. There is no Rule 3
4. Judge's decision final.
5. During the first 24 hours from the quiz being posted
- you are allowed ONLY ONE POST (containing answers to as many questions as you like).
- Additional posts will be ignored.
- Edited posts will be disqualified.
- Complete answers will take precedence over earlier partial answers
6. After the first 24 hours there is no restriction on posts (usual free for all rules). Do not edit your posts. If you want to add or correct something post a new reply. The points go to the first person to get the correct answer. "First" is taken as the posting time. If you edit a post, the editing time will be used.

Post lyrics #6

Sheryl Crow 1996 - Oh Marie

Here she comes,
she's all dressed up in daisies
Half the time you'd swear that she is crazy

Or
Primal Scream 1986? - Velocity Girl

Here she comes again
with vodka in her veins
been playing with the spike
she couldn't get it right

Or
Fireball Mail C&W 1943. Words by Jenkins & Floyd
Various artists, including Charlie Feathers

Here she comes
look at her go
There she goes,
eaten that coal



I must get out more!
