Joy Division Substance 1977-1980

Music Quiz: Will, Won’t, Can, Can’t

Congratulations to Jim, Rich, Badfinger20, and Tony who all scored perfect marks in last week’s 1970s quiz.

This week’s challenge requires you to fill in will, won’t, can, or can’t into song titles. I like how they included both Joy Division’s song and the Captain and Tenille song that inspired it. I scored 38/40 – can you beat me?

I’m way slow on this, but does anyone else really enjoy Vampire Weekend’s first single from their recently released album Father of the Bride? The video has snakes, pancakes, and Danielle Haim apparently auditioning for a shampoo commercial.

      1. I think it would have justified having a separate single version. I think there’s enough happening for 5 minutes on the album version. Overall, the album has 18 tracks in 57 minutes, so generally pretty brief.

        1. The production keeps the interest up for sure, but just because it can doesn’t mean it should. I listened to the band Haim for the first time earlier….quirky/cool production there too

        2. I like Haim a lot – I don’t think they’ve made an album that’s great the whole way through, but they sing so nicely. My wife likes them because they remind her of Wilson Phillips from her youth.

    1. There’s quite a bit of Paul Simon (especially Graceland) in Vampire Weekend, Haim often resemble 1980s Fleetwood Mac, while the album I’m covering for New Music Review next week sounds like The Carpenters in places…..
