Congratulations to Music Enthusiast Jim, who scored the fastest time while completing the Away song titles quiz. Good work as well to 2loud2old and Paul, who also recorded perfect scores.
This week we are identifying 1970s songs by their opening couplets. It takes at least five minutes, so make sure you have the time.
I scored 26/30, although I probably should have scraped out another couple. I’m sure someone will manage full marks, but who will it be?
Unfortunately Peter Gabriel isn’t featured – I guess this couplet from ‘The Colony of Slippermen’ is a little obscure?
I wandered lonely as a cloud,
Till I came upon this dirty street.
I’ve never seen a stranger crowd;
Slubberdegullions on a squeaky feet,
With nonchalant embracing,
Each orifice disgracing
And one facing me moves to say “hellay”.
Do you have a favourite opening line from a 1970s song?
