Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Monday, April 17, 2021

Last week’s Guess That Song lyric game was well-received, so let’s give it another spin!

Same deal as before: I provide snippets from five songs (most likely pop songs past and present), you guess the artist and title for any or all (no Googling, please). You get your name and a linkback next to each correct answer, right in this post, forevermore.

So let’s get to it:

1. The voice of reason is one I left so far behind.

2. Elvis Costello, “Brilliant Mistake” [Helen]
Her perfume was unspeakable, it lingered in the air.

3. Beastie Boys, “Egg Man” [Joel]
Saw the convertible driving by, loaded up the slingshot, let one fly.

4. Neil Young & Crazy Horse, “Pocahontas” [Joel]
The taxis run across my feet and my eyes have turned to blanks.

5. This is the game that moves as you play.

Game on!

    Well, I gave it an extra week, but I guess the second edition of the Guess That Song game didn’t inspire as many guesses. It’s a fickle blogosphere.

    For the sake of closure, here are the answers to the two remaining lyrics: …
