Subject: "DON'T FORGET THE LYRICS" Quiz - LAST ANSWERS GIVEN

Written By: ADH13 on 09/09/10 at 2:31 pm

Ok, this one is inspired by the game show.  No need to give title & artist, just fill in the blanks. (Some of the blanks do contain the title)

I'm not going to nitpick about such things as "nothing" vs "nothin'", "I" vs "I'll", "cause" vs "because", etc. but otherwise all words need to be correct to receive credit.

In cases where there is a one letter "word" which isn't an actual word, I have used a single _ instead of ____.   (An example would be the B in Johnny B Goode)

Limit 5.  Enjoy!


1. oh it all began with just one little glance, but soon it ended up a big romance, Blame it on the Bossa Nova, the dance of love.  - Paul  (Blame It On The Bossa Nova - Edye Gorme)

Hey, this looks like an interesting quiz!

8. I got a callous on my finger and my shoulder's hurtin' too, I'm gonna eat 'em all up just as soon as they _____ _____


...turn blue.  Pac-Man Fever, Buckner and Garcia, 1982, and I know I'm not the only video game nerd here, so why did it take this long?

The rest of 'em sound like love songs, so, as I'm clearly the biggest video game nerd here, I'm not gonna be much help from here on out.  

PROTIP: If your version sounds a littleweird, you got the 1990 version, not the original 1982 version.  The 1990 re-recording of the album was just that: an (extremely faithful) re-recording of the original songs, because they couldn't get the rights from the record company to release their own originals.  Or the samples from the games, so they had to re-record them too.  Or even the screenshot from the game that made up the original album's cover art.  They had to do it all over again from scratch.  Both are earwormy, but if the CD sounded "off", dig up a rip of the 1982 original, which was never released on CD.

Of course, just when I thought I knew it all, now I have to go find the 12" remix from 1981.  (Of course, a suitable link appears as the third Google hit on the most obvious query, with the artist thanking the uploader for making it available again.  Damn, I love the Internet.  Wockawockawockawockawock....)

Of course that is correct! :)   Yeah I think I have the original, didn't know there were more than one but I do have the video game sound at the beginning.  I had it on 8-Track back in the day and it sounds the same.  Now I'm curious though, as to what the later one sounds like.  Off to go hunt it down :)
