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.
Arrange whatever pieces come your way. - Virginia Woolf
Did you know that if you say the word "GULLIBLE" really softly, it sounds like "ORANGES"?
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.
