Trivia Time (Post #9)

Filed under: Trivia — Tense @ 12:00 pm

I think I’m going to give away my first prize now — it’s Mississippi-made snack foods… chocolate and munchies. If you know your 80s music, this ought to be a breeze. For the lyrics I post, give me the song title and the artist. If you don’t want to post your answers in the comments (and risk someone stealing them), send me an email at tenseteacherATgmailDOTcom. First one to get them all right wins this:

Prize - Snackage


1. Moving on the floor now, babe, you’re a bird of paradise
Cherry ice cream smile I suppose it’s very nice
With a step to your left and a flick to the right
You catch the mirror way out West
You know you’re something special and you look like you’re the best.  — “Rio” – DuranDuran

2. See the kids just getting out of school
They can’t wait to hang out and be cool
Hang around ’til quarter after twelve
That’s when they fall in line  — “We Got the Beat” – GoGo’s

3. Hot summer streets
And the pavements are burning
I sit around
Trying to smile but
The air is so heavy and dry  — “Cruel Summer” – Bananarama

4. The blonde waitresses take their trays
They spin around and they cross the floor
They’ve got the moves
You drop your drink then they bring you more  — “Walk Like An Egyptian” – The Bangles

5. I guess I shoulda closed my eyes
When u drove me 2 the place
Where your horses run free
Cuz I felt a little ill
When I saw all the pictures
Of the jockeys that were there before me  — “Little Red Corvette” – Prince

6. The language of love has left me stony grey
Tongue tied and twisted at the price I’ve had to pay
Your careless notions have silenced these emotions
Look at all the foolishness your lover’s talk has done  — “Who’s That Girl” – Eurythmics

7. She’ll only come out at night
The lean and hungry type
Nothing is new, I’ve seen her here before
Watching and waiting
She’s sitting with you but her eyes are on the door  — “Maneater” – Hall & Oates

8. Used to go to dinner almost every night
Danced until I thought I’d lose my breath
Now it seems your dancin’ feet are always on my couch
Good thing I cook or else we’d starve to death…  –“What Have You Done for Me Lately” – Janet Jackson

Alrighty people, get to guessing! There’s food at stake.  EDIT: Frankie wins!
