Since no one knows any of the lyrics I post when I think they are easy, here is one that is probably impossible.


fast and bulbous
(Hey, do it again) I love that, I love those words
Fast and bulbous, that's right, the mascara snake
Fast and bulbous
Bulbous, also tapered (yeah but you gotta wait until I say it)
Also, a tin teardrop (oh, christ)
(Again, beginning)
Fast and bulbous, that's right, the mascara snake
Fast and bulbous, also a tin teardrop
Bulbous, also tapered, that's right



It's off Trout Mask Replica, but I don't know the name of the song. So I'll just guess that the song's name is also Trout Mask Replica, by Captain Beefheart.



That’s closer than I would have expected!

The song is “Pena”, from Trout Mask Replica. “Fast and bulbous” shows up twice on Trout Mask: “A squid, eating dough, in a polyethylene bag, is fast and bulbous,” is also a lyric in the song “Pachuco Cadaver”.

Okay, since that wasn’t obscure enough, try this one:

SPRAY PAINT!
KEEP AWAY FROM FLAME! AAAAAHHHHHH!
Avoid breathing in the vapors!
Keep out of reach of children!
Contents under pressure! AHAAAAA!
Place it in sunlight!

And now, in the category "90's Pop", name that song...

My loneliness is killing me (and I)
I must confess I still believe (still believe)
When I'm not with you I lose my mind
Give me a sign


The next line in the song is something you might hear sung at a blackjack table.
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

Buzzzzzzzzz!!


That is Britney Spears' first big release "[Hit Me] Baby One More Time". Despite belief that the title refers to abuse or S&M, the actual reason is rather innocent. The songwriters were Swedish and thought that "hit me" was American slang for "call me" (as in on the phone).

My timing sucks in this game. Everytime I know one (cuz I'm too old, I guess, that's about 1 in 3) someone else is in there. If I'm the first to see one, it's some recent (see above for relativity of "recent") thing that ends up unanswered. Yeesh.

Ah, well. Made a decision back in the 80s I wasn't going to catalog music trivia, shouldn't whine when it keeps biting me.

In the category Recent Country:

I got you in trouble in high school,
And college now that was a ball,
You had some of the best times
You'll never remember with me...

I thought to be a smartass and tell you how long ago "Recent" was to make you feel old.

Then I realized how long ago "Recent" was.

Ding! Ding! Correct!!

Another song that half the artists on the planet seem to have covered, Miller got the idea for it when he saw a sign on the side of a barn that read, "Trailers for sale or rent".

Far away, across the field
The tolling of the iron bell
Calls the faithful to their knees
To hear the softly spoken magic spell

Very, very close, but no.

Flip that 45 over to the B-side.
