1) Overkilled on classic radio, but a good song.

2) Never heard of it, but have heard of him. Too intelligent for commercial radio.

3) I like Veruca Salt. I mean, how can you go wrong with a band named after a character from "Willie Wonka"?

4) Garbage...ehhh.

5) I like Duran Duran...check out thier cover CD called "Thank You"'s pretty decent.

6) Love the all of their stuff.

7) Like Johnny Cash too.

8) This song has actually made it to the oldies station out here.

9) Don't like her hypocritical viewpoint on politics.

10) I actually got that song on the soundtrack album. Bonus points if you can tell me who sings it.

And.....chocolate? Hmmm...being a diabetic, I probably wouldn't be able to enjoy it. But...if you can find a deserving child to give it to, please pass it on to that deserving child with my compliments.

Now that I see the answers, I'm glad I got so few of them right.

I can recommend that chocolate. Pretty darn good. :)

Granny Annie said...

Hey, I'm an old Granny. I don't know this kind of kid stuff. But I missed the part about Chocolate or I would have at least tried. Can I get a candy bar because you sympathize with an old senile woman?

Ally said...

I love Duran Duran. Especially when I get to sing their songs on Rock Band. Ha ha!

Asking FB if she wants chocolate is like asking a Cuban man if he'd like a cigar.

You have ecclectic taste, my friend.

PS - I love Leonard Cohen's "I'm Your Man"...the YouTube video with Johnny Depp images all through the song. It's beautiful!

Ily said...

Sorry about the extra c in eclectic...too much Cuban coffee this afternoon!

Riot Kitty said...

G: Sorry about that! Starbucks? I have the "Thank You" album and I love it.
FB: Okey dokey!
WIGSF: If there was an obnoxious comments contest today, you'd win. How's that?
L: I know, right? And I'm not even a chocolate person!
GA: I can send some, even though you're not old or senile :)
A: I love all of Duran Duran.
Ily: No worries!

To all of you: these aren't my taste, necessarily, just lyrics I thought were interesting.

I was actually able to find a 12" of the song White Lines at a Salvation Army Thrift store back in the 90's.

Original version is very cool.

No need to apologize, it was the thought that counts.
