Musical Quiz

I've been listening to my fast English music album for the past 2 hours... on my walkman, of course... and dancing like I was the winner of Dance-India-Dance! Been singing along too occasionally, obviously at the top of my voice! Legs are about to give up now though, they're not accustomed to being used that much in that fashion. And Dad has been absolutely fantastic all this while! He hasn't asked me to shut up even once! I know, isn't that just awesome! At times I wonder it must be quite difficult being a single Dad for a girl like me! Thankfully though, my sister is slightly tamer, but mind you... only very slightly!

Anyway, we’ll discuss the eccentricities of the “Singhania girls” (as in “the Gilmore girls”!) some other time. Right now, I have a small musical quiz for you all. I’m going to list part of the lyrics of 10 random songs from my playlist, and then let’s see how many of you manage to get them all. Try not to cheat though… there’s no fun in that. Besides, there isn’t going to be any grand prize of 50K for the winner, you know! [wink] Ok so let’s begin then…

  1. Now she is afraid to come out of the water
    And the poor little girl's turning blue

  2. Hypodermics on the shores, China's under martial law
    Rock and Roller cola wars, I can't take it anymore

  3. When me come me bring a new stylee
    So listen crowd of people and you have to follow me

  4. Stop bugging me, stop bothering me
    Stop bugging me, stop forcing me

  5. It is a night for passion
    But the morning means goodbye
    Beware of what is flashing in her eyes

  6. If you leave me
    You're gonna spoil a dream we shared

  7. Move with me jam with me
    and if you’re good I’ll take you home with me

  8. Like to see ya movin' to your favorite tune
    The way you work that body gets me in the mood

  9. Number 47 said to number 3
    "You're the cutest jailbird I ever did see”

  10. Tonight I'm yours
    We can make it happen I'm so sure

Right, so there you go now. Some of them are really easy, but a few are a bit tricky. I’ll give you a hint -- all of these songs are at least a decade old, if not more! What are such old songs doing in my playlist? Hey, music is music pal… be it today’s or tomorrow’s or yesteryears’! Enjoy figuring this one out! Good night!

P.S. - Here's more in music!

This is my sixteenth post for NaBloPoMo November 2010.

- Its my life. Couldn't get any of the others. I love those classic dance numbers from the 80's & 90's, the kind that they used to play in school/college jam sessions in the pre-dj era...
