Trivia Tuesday: Name That Tune

Your challenge this week is to name the artist based on the lyrics for 10 songs listed below. Good luck!

1. My Spanish Harlem Mona Lisa
You’re my reason for reason

2. Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage.

3. Valentine is done
Here but now they’re gone
Romeo and Juliet
Are together in eternity

4. Another day, another dollar, another war,
Another tower went up, where the homeless had their homes
So we pray to as many different God's as there are flowers
But we call religion our friend

5. DC chillin’, PG chillin’
My name _____, and I came to get it.
Came to get it, came to get it
My name _____.

6. It’s poetry in motion
She turned her tender eyes to me
As deep as any ocean
As sweet as any harmony

7. Shake shake shake, shake shake shake,
Shake your booty! Shake your booty!

8. I would like to reach out my hands
I may see you, I may tell you to run.
Nobody safe, nobody on. (I’ve probably heard this song hundreds of times; I never knew that this line contained these words.)

9. Save me, I'm lost
Oh lord, I've been waiting for you
I'll pay any cost
Save me from being confused

10. We’re Josh Thompson and Jimmy Wayne and Sean doesn’t know any of our songs, so he’s just making up lyrics since the artists in #7-#10 are performing at Celebrate Fairfax this weekend.

This is also a subtle plug that discounted tickets are available for Celebrate Fairfax through Thursday. I understand that I am biased since I have worked or voluteered at the festival for the past 8 years, but Celebrate Fairfax truly is one of the best festivals around. If you live in the DC area, come out this weekend.

Oh, for Trivia Tuesday, please leave your answers in the comments section below, and as usual, don't use the internet for answers.

Quick, quick answers tonight.

1. While Rob Thomas is technically correct, I'm surprised that none of you included Santana.

2. Smashing Pumpkins and Hand of Godard get bonus points for correctly naming the lead singer.

3. Blue Oyster Cult.

4. Jewel

5. Wale (is he as big in DC as Rusted Root was in Pittsburgh about 15 years ago?)

6. No one got this correct yet. If I yell science, would that help?

7. KC & the Sunshine Band.

8. Rusted Root

9. Carolina Liar

10. Can anyone name a song by either Josh Thompson or Jimmy Wayne?

I was gonna say Rob Thomas/Santana but you posted answers already.

6. Thomas Dolby. :)

Lacochran - I was just so eager to provide the answers, sorry. You'll be happy to know that question #6 was inspired from your blog post.
