See Where You Rank in Washington

  1. First time I've ever tried this stake thing...we'll see how it goes. Here are the rules:

    - To qualify, you must have AT LEAST 12 months of P5s membership.

    - First post to qualify and answer all five lyrics (song title & artist) wins a stake to the $10+1 30k guaranteed on Stars (50/50 split, PM me when you play so I can keep my eyes open)

    - If you qualify, have the first post to answer all five lyrics AND get the two bonus questions gets an upgrade to either the $25+2.50 40k guaranteed on Stars OR a $24+2 MTT on FTP (your choice)

    Over the vacation, I did a lot of driving, listening to my trusty XM SkyFi satellite radio. The station I was listening to had a lot of songs I really like...we'll start with an easy one:

    Lyric #1:

    The graph on the wall tells the story of it all

    Lyric #2 (my favorite line from a song ever):

    She's filing her nails while they're dragging the lake

    Lyric #3:

    Try to catch the deluge in a paper cup

    Lyric #4:

    Julie came and went so fast she didn't even say goodbye

    Lyric #5:

    All the times I waited patiently for you as you do just what you choose to do

    BONUS #1:

    What Sirius/XM station was I listening to (name, not number)?

    BONUS #2:

    What was this station called back in the old XM days?

  12. I just got home from our trip, and will be sending out the stake shortly to BamaBlonde and WillyWoo. WillyWoo never named the band on #5, but did get the exact title. But I'm still filled with enough holiday spirit to stake Bama and Willy both.

    The Damned song is called &quot;Alone Again Or&quot;.

    The two bonus answers are &quot;1st Wave&quot; (XM 44, I guess it's 22 on Sirius...at least that's what they kept saying). XM 44 used to be called &quot;Fred&quot;...with &quot;Lucy&quot; and &quot;Ethel&quot; being the other two alternative-ish stations. I thought it was very clever, and the Sirius guys doing the programming are about 1/10th as creative.

  13. Oops...I missed Willy's getting the other version of &quot;Alone Again Or&quot; (I didn't know UFO did a version - they wouldn't be on an alternative station). I didn't know Arthur Lee's Love did the original...I always just knew it as a Damned song.

    Like I said, I was gonna stake both anyway.

    I'll probably post more lyric quizzes from time to time if people promise not to just Google it. They were far more fun pre-Google, on the alt.music UseNet boards.
