    Wink Music Trivia Thread!

    This is based on an idea in the Shoutbox by Four Four Two... basically, it is a music trivia game that goes like this:

    I post some words in a musical sentence... and you mention the song name and artist!

    Then the winner gets to post their words, and so on!

    Here's an easy one to "start things rolling" :

    "Well, we shot the line, we went for broke, with a thousand screaming trucks! ....and eleven long haired friends of Jesus, in a Cheratruese Microbus!"

    Remember, artist name and song title please! If you get it right, you get to post the next one!

    I only know this song because it's in both The Simpsons (Timmy down the Well episode) and Futurama (Parasites Lost).

    Song is Convoy...

    But I had to search for the artist (C.W. McCall), so that's probably cheating

    Is it Convoy by C.W.Mccall?
    No this is silly, the whole premise is silly and very badly written. I'm the senior officer here and I've not had a funny line yet so I'm stopping it.

    OK, easy.

    Edit: No one has it yet? I'll put the next lines:

    I know that your powers of retention
    Are as wet as a warthog's backside
    But thick as you are, pay attention!
    My words are a matter of pride!


    It's clear from your vacant expressions
    The lights are not all on upstairs
    But we're talking kings and successions
    Even you can't be caught unawares!

    Be Prepared

    Song is "Be Prepared"
    music Elton John
    words Tim Rice

    Now my line to pick the song.

    "Like a one-eyed cat peeking in a sea food store"

    Big clue Bill Haley recorded a cleaned up version of the song but never changed this line as he did not know what it meant. Elvis Presley used the original words.

    I am guessing:

    Shake Rattle & Roll?

    (I remember that one from listening to it as a kid back in the 1970s on the Bill Haley vynil record that my mother owned!)

    Question Big Joe or Calhoun?

    How could Bill Haley not understand that line?

    The following line is "Well I can look at you,tell you aint no child no more".

    It's all about sex people!

    The author of Shake rattle and roll is in question though,most websites give Big Joe Turner,but some list Calhoun.

    Well done folks

    Yes you got it right.

    Incidentally I have the Joe Turner version somewhere in my vinyl collection. He recorded with the Count Basie Band and his version was very good.

    lol, and I always thought it was about a one eyed cat that was hungry.

    Now a slight deviation from the format:

    According to the lyrics, what has one eye, is purple, and had "one long horn"?

    Song title and artist please (the answer to the above question is the song title).

    (...and please try to keep the answers clean people! ).

    Enough of easy questions

    This one is really tough.

    Which jazz musician died of diabetes shortly after recording his last album in Holland. Big clue it fetures an absolutely stunning version of a Thelonius Monk
    piece.

    Question

    Hope you werent using the internet for the Beatles question Mr Flude,cause it sort of defeats the purpose of the thread.
    Do you even know who Dee Dee Ramone,Chaka Demus,and Salt,n Pepa are?
