Subject: The One-Line Video Quiz! (4.5/10 remaining) - NOW OPEN TO ALL!

Written By: mrgazpacho on 09/25/04 at 10:42 pm

Here's how this works: I describe a music video in one line, and you guess the song/artist! Simple :)

Warning: this quiz is not specific to any decade, because I didn't have any prepared and I'm doing this off the top of my head. So please limit yourself to ONE guess only, 'cos I aint workin' with much here... ;D OK how about some leniency - if your guess is wrong, you get to have another guess at any of the remaining videos. OK, go for it, people! :D


1: Ground beef with kids - Another Brick In The Wall (Pink Floyd); Indy Gent
2: Infectious horny virus
3: Buck-toothed transvestitism - I Want To Break Free (Queen); mandamoo
4: Screaming alien granny-eater
5: Sad dog in cast  - ?????????? (Daft Punk) ; maddog
6: Dancing zombies - Thriller (Michael Jackson) ; FussBudgetVanPelt
7: Pederasty with dolphins
8: Boxing Helena goes to war
9: Dinner table invaded by carnival activities or Band sits at breakfast table; crowd enters room; crowd leaves room - I Wanna Be Sedated (The Ramones); Niko101
10: Abandoned traffic jam - Everybody Hurts (REM) ; stingr22

Very good, Mooie!

And you too, Indy (that was in fact the description that inspired me to post this quiz, after a video ID request on the 80's forum) :)

Would #9 be We're Not Gonna Take It by Twisted Sister?

Subject: Re: The One-Line Video Quiz! (6/10 remaining)

Written By: mrgazpacho on 09/27/04 at 6:11 am

Nice try, Dagwood, but no - not quite the one I was thinking of.

(I do realise some people might describe Twisted Sister as a carnival act, but I was thinking more of the actual chaos of activity rather than physical appearance... ;D )

I'm thinking 9. is "Round and Round" - Ratt :-\\

That was my second guess...you beat me to it, darn you. ;)

Hmmm... no; not that one either (actually, I don't even *know* that video!).

Maybe the hint is a bit misleading. So... additional hint for #9: Band sits at breakfast table; crowd enters room; crowd leaves room.

Is #9 "She's a Beauty" by The Tubes?

Sorry, no, not that one either...

Oh well, looks like I gotta open this up to all comers, so if anyone who's already got one right still wants a go at any of the remainder, feel free! :D

Is #9 "I Wanna Be Sedated" by the Ramones?

I know this is probably wrong, but I'll take a stab at #9 and say Ratt's video for "Round And Round"....?  :-\\

Ooh! Niko101 finally got it! The mysterious #9 is solved :)

I'm sure I've seen the video for #5, it's some guy in a dog costume with a cast wandering around Manhattan isn't it?
The dog can talk as well, he meets some girl in a supermarket and he knows her, they went to high school together or something, and they have some friends in common that they chat about, all without her mentioning that he is a large dog! Very weird.

I think the band is Daft Punk but I can't remember the name of the song.

maddog, you are correct on the band. I'll give you the credit for that, because that makes it easier for the next person... :)

Ok, I'll guess...

Is  #9 The One Thing by INXS?

Subject: Re: The One-Line Video Quiz! (4.5/10 remaining) - NOW OPEN TO ALL!

Written By: mrgazpacho on 10/16/04 at 10:03 am

Kimber,

Niko101 already got #9 earlier on. But then again, I suppose there are several videos which fit that description - The Ramones one just happeend to be the one I was thinking of :)
