Sing, Sing A Song...

Excuse me while I do some horn-tooting. I have won this round of Redneck Diva's writing challenge. As Diva herself would say...I am happier than a puppy with two p*ckers. Thanks to all of you who voted for me. Thanks to all of you who voted. We are trying to get more voters, and more contestants. Won't you please play along this week? The words will be posted soon. I should know. I get to make them up. Check it out at writeinthethickofit.blogspot.com. All are welcome to submit a story. You just email it to the Diva. Her email is on the top of the site. Come one, come twenty...we need fresh blood. Not that we're going to make you bleed or anything. It's just an expression.

Let's have a little song trivia for tonight's post. Oh. Y'all don't have a vote. It's not a freakin' democracy around here, people! All you get to vote on is the writing contest. So don't abuse the privilege, by cracky!

Hillbilly Mom's Song Triva From Her Windows Media Player Because She Is Electronically Challenged And Has Not Yet Mastered The New-Fangled MP3 Player, Much Less One Of Those Space-Age IPOD Thingies.

Tell the song OR the artist. Because you deserve a break today. But NO GOOGLING! Absolutely none. And here's a clue...these are the opening lines of the songs, not the catch phrase, or some chunk from the middle.

1. "Another turning point, a fork stuck in the road. Time grabs you by the wrist, directs you where to go."

"City girls just seem to find out early/ How to open doors with just a smile/A rich old man, she won't have to worry/She'll dress up all in lace and go in style."

"You had a little love on a little honeymoon/You got a little dish and you got a little spoon/A little bitty house and a little bitty yard/A little bitty dog and a little bitty car."

"It's criminal, there ought to be a law/Criminal, there ought to be a whole lot more/You get nothin' for nothin' / Tell me who can you trust?/We got what you want/And you got the lust"

"I didn't ask/They shouldn't have told me/At first I'd laugh, but now/It's sinking in fast/Whatever they've sold me."

"My daddy was a charmer boys/He had a lot of style/He was the shining best of everything he did/They said that he could lighten up the room with just a smile/And I was proud as hell to be his kid."

"She turned up her nose as she walked by my Cadillac/From the corner of my eye, I saw you and you laughed/You was sittin' on the swing on your front porch, paintin' your nails like you were bored/And you yelled 'She was sure impressed with you!'"

"I got a little change in my pocket goin' jing-a-ling-a-ling/Want to call you on the telephone, baby, and give you a ring/Each time I try, I get the same old thing/'No huggy, no kissy, until I get a weddin' ring'"

"It was the third of June/Another sleepy, dusty delta day/I was out choppin' cotton and my brother was bailin' hay/And at dinner time we stopped and walked back to the house to eat/And Momma hollered out the back door, 'Y'all remember to wipe you feet...'"

"I was a mess in my open-eyed youth, I grew up thinking /What's good for one oppresses the other, it's my turn, my life, my way, mine, me/It made me crazy, I couldn't fight it, I couldn't wait to get away...It's a war, with the whole wide world/It's a war, with the boys and girls, it's a war, and nothin's gonna change..."

Yeah. That's it. Good luck. Methinks you'll need it. Or not.

I don't mean to taunt you, but one Redneck Diva has submitted her trivial answers, and has 5 correct. I shan't publish the comments until Wedesday around 6:00, because somebody may try a-cheatin'. None of you regulars, of course. Perhaps some vagrant, blog-hopping commenter, trying to steal your glory. So submit away, and I will hold them in reserve until I'm ready to give the answers Wednesday night.

Well done on the win HBM :)

Hillbilly Mom said...

Thanks. I've already sent Diva the words for this week's contest. Good luck, by cracky!

Woo Hoo!

Stewed Hamm said...

I only know two of those... I am so teh suck at identifying lyrics without a tune.

Peg said...

Ok...I think I can do this one...

1. Green Day...Time of Your Life...but I think the song has a different actual name, like Good Riddance or something.

2. That's the Eagles or Don Henley but I don't know the song name.

3. Alan Jackson, Little bitty

4. No Clue

5. Goo Goo Dolls?? Till I hear It from You?

6. No Clue

7. Some Girls Do, Sawyer Brown

8. Keep Your Hands To Yourself, Georgia Satellites

9. Ode To Billie Joe

10. No Clue

Hillbilly Mom said...


Peg has 7 correct! That will be tough to beat, unless some goober Googles.

Well said.

That could be the saddest thing I've ever heard.
Said Lil in Coyote Ugly.

Don't pretend you've never seen it. We KNOW you have.


Cazzie!!! said...

By cracky, I think I need it. As I said to Rebecca the other day, "How am I supposed to win against the mighty people over there with all their great words and plus, plus, they are all teachers FFS!!!" LOL.
I am enjopying it though. I have not written a story in a long time. I love to read, but I also love to write :)

Hillbilly Mom said...

I have always thought you were at a disadvantage, because you may not use the words the same way we do. Like BY CRACKY, for instance. Or you use them for something else, such as saying somebody is PISSED means drunk, not angry.

But isn't it fun to enter each week? I, too, am more of a reader than a writer. But I'm having fun. It's not the triumph but the struggle. Some Olympic athlete wrote a book with that title, I think. Though I'm sure it comes from some far more important quote, which I'm sure somebody will point out to me.

This little contest thingy is more fun than writing something and throwing it in a drawer. Which is where mine belong, but I don't see great gangs of people flocking to enter each week, so I'm going to continue. Don't you miss Big Blogger?

Hillbilly Mom said...

OK, I can wait no longer. I have posted the entries, and it looks like PEG takes the cake on this one. Don't expect any REAL cake, Peg. Though there's one in the back of my LSUV at the moment, chilling, from Easter. It's a box cake. Rainbow Chip. With matching frosting. But the sad fact remains: YOU DON'T GET NONE!

But you ARE the winner. Unless someone posts really late, after reading the correct answers, or GOOGLING.

Here they are:

1)Good Riddance...Green Day
2)Lyin' Eyes...The Eagles
3)Little Bitty...Alan Jackson
4)If You Want Blood (You Got It)...AC/DC
5)Till I Hear It From You...Gin Blossoms
6)The Heart...Lacy J. Dalton
7)Some Girls Do...Sawyer Brown
8)Keep Your Hands To Yourself...Georgia Satellites
9)Ode To Billie Joe...Bobbie Gentry
10)Love/Hate...Liz Phair

WooHoo! Y'all knew more than I expected. Though I can't believe the AC/DC song escaped you. Perhaps you're more mellow than I expected.

Peg said...

*bow*curtsey* Thank you! Thank you!

YEAH!!! I am not a big AC/DC fan, it hurts my brain to hear all that loud screech.

Never heard of The Heart or Liz Phair.

Can't believe I said GooGoo Dolls, don't tell my husband. He'd be so ashamed.

Hillbilly Mom said...

You STILL don't get any cake. Just sayin'...
