    Default Jethro Tull song help and SongPop

    Two different topics but both music related.

    First I was having dinner at a bar tonight and heard a song I hadn't heard in years. It's by Jethro Tull. All I can tell you of any value is that it is not Aqualung but it mentions the word "aqualung" in it. Something like "had been bought by Aqualung" though I googled that phrase and came up with nothing. So I figure "bought" is the wrong word. Gah. It's driving me nuts!

    Second, are there any fans of SongPop out there? I love it! I'm not great at it (one of my opponents is a COTHer and she regularly beats the pants off me!) but I just find it to be a lot of fun and VERY satisfying when I pull something out of the deep recesses of my brain. For those not familiar, it's a game where song clips are played, and you have to guess the artist or song from a multiple-choice selection. Lots of genres to choose from, some I consider myself pretty familiar with, others that are a real stretch.

    I play it once in a while. Usually on my phone.

    Could it be:

    Cross-Eyed Mary



    Who would be a poor man, a beggarman, a thief --
    if he had a rich man in his hand.
    And who would steal the candy
    from a laughing baby's mouth
    if he could take it from the money man.
    Cross-eyed Mary goes jumping in again.
    She signs no contract
    but she always plays the game.
    Dines in Hampstead village
    on expense accounted gruel,
    and the jack-knife barber drops her off at school.
    Laughing in the playground -- gets no kicks from little boys:
    would rather make it with a letching grey.
    Or maybe her attention is drawn by Aqualung,
    who watches through the railings as they play.
    Cross-eyed Mary finds it hard to get along.
    She's a poor man's rich girl
    and she'll do it for a song.
    She's a rich man stealer
    but her favour's good and strong:
    She's the Robin Hood of Highgate --
    helps the poor man get along.

    Here's a list of their song titles, each is a link to the actual lyrics :-)

    You know the really weird thing? The guy who plays Rick on Walking Dead is married to Ian Anderson's daughter.
