Subject: CF's Word Quiz (DONE!)

Written By: CeramicsFanatic on 02/20/05 at 5:48 pm

This is a different type of music quiz that some of you may be familiar with and others may not.  Next to each number below you will see a set of three words.  Those words all appear in a song and it is your duty to identify that song and the artist(s).  (To make things a little easier, I have chosen popular songs for this first round.  Also, I have kept the words in the order that they appear in the song).  :)

Limit: 3


1. diesel; bandana; driver
gemini (Me And Bobby McGee - Janis Joplin)

2. fields; scaled; devil
Indy (I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For - U2)

3. seldom; declare; wages
Paul (The Boxer - Simon & Garfunkel)

4. farm; society; vodka
whitewolf (Goodbye Yellow Brick Road - Elton John)

5. fantasy; trigger; mattered
Zella (Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen)

6. heartbeat; empty; loud
Paul (When I Need You - Leo Sayer)

7. style; embarrassed; despair
mandamoo (Killing Me Softly With His Song - Roberta Flack)

8. rents; shores; frog
FB (I Am...I Said - Neil Diamond)

9. molasses; lightning; Memphis
whitewolf (Black Velvet - Alannah Myles)

10. security; uphill; skeptic
nally (Things Can Only Get Better - Howard Jones)

11. cursing; sipped; faces
Indy (I've Never Been To Me - Charlene)

12. familiar; romantics; remind
Indy (New Kid In Town - The Eagles)

13. choke; subsides; writer
whitewolf (Sometimes When We Touch - Dan Hill)

14. recording; paper; mean
Paul

15. candle; linen; clearly
Indy (These Dreams - Heart)

Aw nuts.. Im sure those words are mentioned in that song, but maybe just not in that order. Maybe someone else will figure it out. :-\\ Wait. Now that I think about it, she doesn't mention "slip" in there.
