music redux

The thing I posted Friday was the McDonald's Menu Song. Not only was it (if I remember correctly) in a commercial, but it was this giveaway thing: You could somehow get a record (yes, record) of the song, and if your record featured the entire "crowd" singing the song correctly, you won some sort of big prize. This video seems to have been created using the recording on a losing record.

Also, I never did post the results of my lyrics quiz, did I?

1. I am just a poor boy and my story's seldom told.
Simon and Garfunkel - The Boxer. 7.5 correct guesses.

2. Winter's cold, spring erases, and the calm away by the storm is chasing.
Dave Matthews Band - Satellite. No one got it!

3. The crime was looking up for truth. And as the bombshells of my daily fears explode, I try to trace them to my youth.
Indigo Girls - Galileo. 8 correct guesses.

4. Don't wanna wait 'til tomorrow. Why put it off another day?
Van Halen - Right Now. No one got it.

5. Slip inside the eye of your mind. Don't you know you might find a better place to play.
Oasis - Don't Look Back In Anger. 2 correct guesses.

6. There goes my baby. She knows how to rock n' roll. She drives me crazy.
Queen - Crazy Little Thing Called Love. 2 correct guesses.

7. Oh, why you look so sad? Tears are in your eyes. Come on and come to me now.
The Pretenders - I'll Stand By You. 1 correct guess (cynara_linnaea).

8. I want a ticket to anywhere. Maybe we make a deal; maybe together we can get somewhere.
Tracy Chapman - Fast Car. 2 correct guesses.

9. Peter said to Paul, "You know all those words we wrote are just the rules of the game."
Josh Ritter - Girl In The War. No one got it.

10. I met someone at the dog show. She was holding my left arm. Everyone was acting normal, so I tried to look nonchalant.
They Might Be Giants - Angel. 2.5 correct guesses.

11. It's not worth anything more than this at all. I live as I choose or I will not live at all.
Cranberries - Free To Decide. 1 correct guess (nnaylime).

12. Do you worry that you're not liked? How long till you break? You're happy 'cause you smile, but how much can you fake?
Our Lady Peace - Superman's Dead. 1 correct guess (myq).

13. There are nights when I think that Sal Paradise was right. Boys and girls in America have such a sad time together.
The Hold Steady - Stuck Between Stations. No one got it. (Which is a shame - this is an awesome song.)

14. You cant run away forever, but there's nothing wrong with getting a good head start.
Meat Loaf - Rock And Roll Dreams Come Through. No one got it.

15. As I drove away slowly, feeling so holy, God knows I was feeling alive.

16. The sandy haired son of Hollywood lost his faith in all that's good.

17. Be my pillow. Take my head and let me sleep in the coolness of your shadow, in the silence of your deep.

18. When I look up to the skies, I see your eyes a funny kind of yellow.
Camper Van Beethoven - Pictures of Matchstick Men. No one got it.

19. Why did I break off more than to bite, losin' in the last frame.
Umphrey's McGee - Women, Wine, and Song. No one got it.

20. You shoot me glances and they're so hard to read. I misconstrue what you mean.
Paul Westerberg - Dyslexic Heart. No one got it.

The winner: myq, with 5.5 points! You win....A NEW CAR! And Bob Barker!
