Random Acts of Thursday - Let the torture continue...

Happy Thursday, kids! It's opposites day here at Worldwide NFG, and since many of you struggled to find the lyrics that fit perfectly around last week's numbers quiz, I figured I'd make life ever so slightly easier. Don't know why, since as you read this, I'm probably here, in traffic.

Or possibly here, also in traffic:
I hope the tunnel's not really as blurry as it seems in the picture.

It's only a day trip for work, (and I have the Cheap Trick version of that song in my head...) but I've neglected you for so long, wouldn't want to leave you hanging for the whole week.  I was out of the house by 4:30 this morning to get to the airport.  Fun times.

Should be a simple quiz this time around for those of you who groused about the pain I caused you last week. Fill in the blanks, children! Unfortunately, as the blanks should explain themselves based on the lyrics, you have to guess at the number of digits, unlike last week where the spaces were properly counted for you on the missing words. Didn't figure that one out, did you?

The man in the coon-skin cap by the big pen wants __ dollar bills, you only got __

I'm a man, I'm __ and I like it

I would walk __ miles and I would walk __ more

Gotta be a big rock star I got it turned up to __

Work __ hours, __ days a week, just so I can come home and kiss your cheek

I'm hot-blooded, check it and see, got a fever of __

Whip out my big __-inch

It was __ years ago today

For __ years, we've been on our own.

In __ we took a little trip

Rollin' in my __.__ got the ragtop down so my hair can blow

By the time we got into Tulsa Town, we had __ trucks in all.

Marie is only __ years old, information please

__ red balloons floating in the summer sky

'Cause it's murder by numbers, __, __, __

I'm not the cat I used to be, I've got a kid, I'm __ baby.

__ holes in Blackburn, Lancashire

And yes, I know a few of these came off the same album. I grade on a curve, so here's hoping you do well.  Bonus points again for the artists.

Seriously, am I the first one here? cool.

You know, this would be easier if you numbered them... just saying.

I would walk 500 miles and I would walk 500 more

I'm hot-blooded, check it and see, got a fever of 103

Whip out my big 10-inch

It was 20 years ago today

99 red balloons floating in the summer sky

1000 holes in Blackburn, Lancashire (dammit, I'm not sure of that, and I should be. By I have Nena stuck in my head!!!)

The rest I guess 69 for, coz, well, I like it.... the number that is.

Bev said...

Mala got pretty much all the ones I knew (good job, Malomatic!) but I'll stab at the others for shits & giggles.

Vanilla Ice was rollin' in his 5.0

Murder By Numbers, 1,2,3

that's all I got!

You never know how much you miss someone until they beat you over the head with a difficult quiz and then leave for a week.

And then! Then, said someone comes back and has a "Convoy" reference in their post? That, my friend, is 100% awesome.

Kari said...

Work 24 hours, 7 days a week, just so I can come home and kiss your cheek. (I loved me some Fabulous T-Birds)

In 1814 we took a little trip. (That song was an answer on Jeopardy recently. Yes, I'm a dork.)

Marie is only 6 years old, information please. (I'm digging the old school songs)

I'm not the cat I used to be, I've got a kid, I'm 33 baby. (I worship Chrissie Hynde)

Woot for Mala! You rock, lady.

Daisy said...

Well, I only knew a few of those and everyone else already answered them. So I'll just say I hope you've found your way out of the tunnel by now and Happy Thursday right back at you. :-)

Elliott said...

Mala, not bad except for the last one, there are more holes than that...

Bev, you got it. And nobody was cooler than Mr. Van Winkle in that crap 90's Mustang.

Jenks, how could I skip CW McCall? That song and resulting film warrant a post all their own some day. Glad you missed me.

You're on fire, Kari! Glad you weighed in today.

Daisy, the tunnel was nowhere near as bad as I was expecting. Driving back on the Verrazano bridge and through Brooklyn, however? Pretty tough.

Be nice and share!
