A Holiday Lyrics Quiz

Mmmmmm. Christmas donuts....

The holidays are a time when you gamely try to resurrect old traditions, such as “enjoying snow” and “not getting aggravated.”

And no tradition is more in need of resurrection than the Tom Musial Dot Com Lyrics Quiz.

Here are lyrics from ten of my favorite winter/holiday songs, a surprising number of which contain prominent references to alcohol.

Post a comment with your guesses and you will gain the recognition of being the first commenter on this website in more than nine months.

10. Late December can drag a man down
9. Father yells, throwing the gifts in the wood stove.
8. Mom got drunk and dad got drunk.
7. Deer might fly. Why not?
6. She’s up and rock and rolling with the rest.
5. Maybe just a half a drink more.
4. You mean you forgot cranberries, too?

Friday Playlist: It’s Party Time

This weekend is Carnegie Mellon University‘s Spring Carnival.

It’s the one time of year that all the nerds, dorks, geeks, and dramats on campus loosen up and act like regular college students.

(Although, in typical CMU fashion, they can’t have a party without incorporating a series of engineering problems, like designing elaborate midway games, building aerodynamic human-powered vehices, and racing robots.)

Nevertheless, as a two-time CMU survivor, I always feel a deep urge each April to spend some time in party-mode.

In that vein, the theme of this week’s lyrics quiz-slash-playlist is Party Time.

(And by the way, if you want to have a crazy good time this weekend, check out Ali Spagnola’s Power Hour concert tonight. 60 songs about drinking in 60 minutes!)

Lyrics:

  1. We don’t really need a crowd to have a party
  2. Down to party hearty and have a good time. All I need is a partner in crime.
  3. After the party, it’s the hotel lobby.
  4. First of all, get off the wall. It’s time to party so have a ball.
  5. Did you hear about the party? (Yeah…) I think I’m gonna go, but my friends don’t wanna go.
  6. If the party is where you at, let me hear you say ‘uh oh’
  7. Pulling up to the parties, trying to get a little bit tipsy
  8. OK, smarty, go to a party
  9. Parties, ball in the park, nothing but girls after dark
  10. I rock the body that rocks your body

Friday Playlist: Tiger Woods Edition

Back in the day, Tom Musial Dot Com used to feature Friday lyrics quizzes. It was a way for me to show off the breadth of my musical knowledge, which ranged from New Jack Swing of the mid 1980s all the way up to popular rap songs of the early 1990s.

I’m reviving the sentiment of those bygone days, but instead of a quiz, I’m basically giving you an answer key. A bunch of video, preceded by the lyrics I would have used in a lyrics quiz if I was still doing lyrics quizzes.

In honor of Tiger Woods’ return to golf, here are nine songs about infidelity.

The Final Lyrics Quiz Goes Out in a Slightly Naughty Blaze of Glory

The people have spoken (via their indifference), and the Tom Musial Dot Com Lyrics Quiz is going on indefinite hiatus.

To commemorate the occasion, I’m stretching the boundaries of what’s acceptable at Tom Musial Dot Com, and venturing into PG-13 territory! That means the use of mild vulgarities.

If you are under thirteen, or are simply not used to seeing anything offensive on the internet, I recommend you immediately click on this link.

If you’re still here, enjoy the quiz. As always, post your answers to the comments. Have fun trying to determine the theme of this week’s quiz!

Self-Referential Lyrics Quiz

Eagle-eyed readers of Tom Musial Dot Com may have noticed that my tagline (the small text in the header) changes each time you visit a new page in the site.

I’m too indecisive to simply choose a single tagline, so I’ve collected a variety of lyrics that describe me or which elicit laughter because they don’t describe me at all. (For example: #5 below).

Listed below are ten taglines from the current rotation. Have fun.

  1. Do my thing with an ’89 swing.
  2. Caught up between being a father and a primadonna.
  3. Take my picture by the pool, ’cause I’m the next big thing.
  4. He’s not a man, he’s a lovin’ machine.
  5. A body like Arnold with a Denzel face.
  6. I can rock the microphone like Dorothy Hamill can skate.
  7. You mean you forgot cranberries too?
  8. I’m clean-cut and dapper; that’s what I’m about.
  9. I’m bringing sexy back.

F Tha Police…

… where “F” stands for “Figure out which song these lyrics are from.”

All lyrics today are from The Police. I’ve never thought of the Police as a particularly morose or introspective band, but these selected lyrics almost seem like they’re a lost Morrissey song.

  2. Don’t you have a lesson for us?
  3. Put away your makeup
  4. No-one’s jamming their transmission
  5. Temptation, frustration
  6. Our minds are deranged
  7. I hope my legs don’t break
  8. It’s the rhetoric of failure
  9. Seems I’m not alone at being alone
  10. Must I always be alone?
  11. It avoids an awful lot of mess

Lyrics Quiz Answers

No submissions for last week’s lyrics quiz. I guess none of the readers of Tom Musial Dot Com were in love in the early nineties. Or at least in love and listening to New Jack Slow Jamz.

Honorable mention goes to über-blogger and local (for now) comedian Ben Kenny for at least leaving a comment.
