1. Drat! I wanted to catch edna in the points standings. Well, there's always February. :laughing:

2. I can see that this Katie is going to be a real factor in this quiz from now on. Good thing she was a late-comer to the game or she may have captured January.

3. Sure looks like Katie and Carole are gonna share the points for this one.

4. Old 55, let me be the first to wish you and your little lady a wonderful holiday later this month.

Question B: - "Girls Talk" by Dave Edmunds

:coolio: :coolio: WELL DONE SAMMY ! THAT'S THE ONE. :) :)

:happybanana: :happybanana: :happybanana: :happybanana: :happybanana: :happybanana: :happybanana: :happybanana: :happybanana: :happybanana: :happybanana: :happybanana:

Dave Edmunds is probably best known for his cover of the old Smiley Lewis song "I Hear You Knocking". 5 POINTS to you and 1 to Addict for participating.

I've liked Dave Edmunds since his days with Nick Lowe and Rockpile. These guys were the kings of the resurgence of rockabilly. I believe Nick "The Basher" Lowe produced a few of Elvis Costello's early albums, and Dave Edmunds' as well. Nick Lowe rocks!!

There are some things you can´t cover up

With lipstick and powder

Thought I heard you mention my name

Can't you talk any louder

Don't come any closer, don't come any nearer

My vision of you can't come any clearer

Oh, I just wanna hear girls talk

Got a loaded imagination bein' fired by girls' talk

It's a more or less situation inspired by girls' talk

But I can't say the words you wanna hear

I suppose you're gonna have to play it by ear, right here

And now, girls talk

And they wanna know how girls talk

And they say it's not allowed, girls talk

If they say that it's so

Don't they think that I'd know by now

Got the word up on everyone's lipstick

That you're getting faded

You may not be an old-fashioned girl

But you're gonna get dated

Was it really murder, were you just pretending

Lately I've heard you are the living end

Girls talk, and they wanna know how girls talk

And they say it's not allowed, girls talk

And they think they know how girls talk

If they say that it's so

Don't they think that I'd now by now

But I can't say the words you wanna hear

I suppose you're gonna have to play it by ear, I hear

There are some things you can't cover up

With lipstick and powder

But I heard you mention my name

Can't you talk any louder

Don't come any closer, don't come any nearer

My vision of you can't come any clearer

Girls talk, and they wanna know how girls talk

And they say it's not allowed, girls talk

And they think they know how girls talk

Girls talk, girls talk

Girls talk, girls talk

Girls talk, girls talk

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah girls talk

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah girls talk

I'll take this one. Thanks, Edna. Ladies and gentleman, please welcome...NICK LOWE AND THE TEXTONES (featuring Dave Edmunds on guitar)!!

MUSICAL INTERLUDE:

"Oh, I can't stand another heartache

Though you say you're my friend, I'm at my wit's end

You say your love is bona-fide, but that don't coincide

With the things that you do

And when I ask you to be nice, you say...

You gotta be cruel to be kind in the right measure

Cruel to be kind, it's a very good sign

Cruel to be kind, means that I love you

Baaaaaby, you gotta be cruel to be kind

Well I do my best to understand, dear

But you still mystify, and I wanna know why

I pick myself up off the ground

To have you knock me back down, again and again

And when I ask you to explain, you say...

You gotta be cruel to be kind in the right measure

Cruel to be kind, it's a very good sign

Cruel to be kind, means that I love you

Baaaaaby, you gotta be cruel to be kind

Well I do my best to understand, dear

But you still mystify, and I wanna know why

I pick myself up off the ground

To have you knock me back down, again and again

And when I ask you to explain, you say...

You gotta be cruel to be kind in the right measure

Cruel to be kind, it's a very good sign

Cruel to be kind, means that I love you

Baaaaaby, you gotta be cruel to be kind"

Oh, I don´t know about Eugene Levy, Dear Uncle... See, I made my bet on sunny Spain and I ´m missing some things... Alf in its original version, pretzels, etc. :laughing:

Sammy, thanks for posting that song, I´ve been singing it during my long-time foam-bath while the others fixed the dinner, so now I must clean, no time for googling nor copy&pasting!! It´s just fair! :shades:

I guess I´ll post "Mother´s little helper" one of these days... :laughing:

:coolio:

Well, it just might be....

Question A - "Riders On The Storm" - The Doors.

:coolio:

QUESTION B: Dion, Bob Dylan and Stuart Sutcliffe were all on the cover of the Beatles 1967 album 'Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band'.

WELL DONE UncleJoe and katie sane. :thumbsup: You've GOT to feel sorry for Windy though on Question A - right Band, but not the song. Sammy also. If I'd been trying for that one I would have guessed Freddie Mercury - that's why I just write the questions and let the Experts answer them. SO 5 points to Uncle and 2 to Windy on that one.

Katie killed Question B, nailed it in one. 5 points to her!

I can't really give any 2 pointers in that one.

We're not going on Holidays until Monday 14th February our time (Valentine's Day - second Honeymoon?) till Friday 4th March. Thanks to you all for your kind wishes.

I'll end the February Quiz at SONGFACTS TIME 12.01 AM Sunday 13th (6 PM our time).

POINTS AFTER THOSE TWO QUIZZES:

UncleJoe 6

katie sane 5

Windy1, edna, miamisammy 2

Don't forget you always get one point for attempting a question, which could be important when we see just how close last month was. :) :)

NEW QUESTION: (Hope you can get into the site to have a go at it). I just can't resist putting on an Elvis question.

A female Movie Star said this after her first visit to Graceland. She did appear in a Musical but she's not recognized as a singer.

"...it was awful. He can sing, but he can't do much else".

She did go back again though. WHO do you think it was??? :)
