  4. Who directed the film, and what two other music related films has he directed? (3 points)
  5. What artist provided the animation and a lot of the set pieces for the tour?

Lyrics: For these questions I give some lyrics, you name the artist, song and album for one point each.

  1. Would you like to say something before you leave
    Perhaps you'd care to state exactly how you feel
    We said good-bye before we said hello
    I hardly even like you, I shouldn't care at all
    We met just six hours ago, the music was too loud
  2. Dig if you will the picture
    Of you and I engaged in a kiss
    The sweat of your body covers me
    Can you my darling...can you picture this?
  3. I saw teenage girls like gaudy moths
    A classrooms shabby butterflies
    Flirt in the glow of stranded telephone boxes;
    Planning white lace weddings from smeared hearts and token proclamations,
    Rolled from stolen lipsticks across the razored webs of glass
    Sharing cigarettes with experience
    With her giggling jealous confidantes,
    She faithfully traces his name
    With quick bitten fingernails
    Through the tears of condensation
    That’ll cry through the night
    As the glancing headlights of the last bus
    Kiss adolescence goodbye

Exciting! I vote for a petition to have all bloggers required to post trivia questions once a week. They're just so much fun, regardless of genre ... 80's music? Really?

80’s Pop:
1. Jenny! This was on an episode of “Back In…”
5. Sinead O’Connor

The Wall:
1. Hey you?
3. Money
4. Alan Parker … Evita and … does Angela’s Ashes count as a musical?

2. Andrew Ridgley (sp?) and George Michael
3. "Captain" Lou Albano
4. Spandau Ballet


1. Janet Jackson (?)
2. Prince, When Doves Cry, Purple Rain (?)

I challenge the #5 answer for 80's pop - Sinead O'Connor ripped up a picture of the pope, didn't burn it.

I actually remember watching it live, too!

The only ones I have any guesses for (not looking to the left to see anyone else's answers):

80's Pop:

4) Tears for Fear?
5) Sinead O'Connor

The Wall:

1) Empty Spaces?
3) Nobody Home
4) Alan Parker and I don't know

That's about it for me. Interesting questions, though.
