Happy New Year Quiz

Postby Richard + Jela » Mon Dec 31, 2007 4:15 am

Happy New Year to you all and to those of who who will be seeing it in at Passims - have a great time and be sure to post your reports.

As this is a time of year when we raise our glasses (!) I thought that it would be fun to post a quiz featuring drinks in Ellis' lyrics and ask you to guess the song title. The quiz is for just for fun and I'd like to suggest that you take turns in guessing the song title, you can have as many goes as you like just so long as you don't do so consecutively...........cheers

1.The Johnsons brought us coffee for the cold

2.They’re at the end of the loop and he’s drinking soup

3.He’s been drinking all night

4.I’m hurt and thirsty, set me on my way

5.Lips pop open like a bottle of wine

6.You drinking your coffee in bed

7.The bartenders buying the round

8.Uncorks the bottle with the dusty label

9.She took to the bottle

10.She ain’t worth the whiskey

11.He kept serving us wine we hadn’t ordered

12.I’m drinkin’ in bars

13.You’ll never find a kinder face than the one behind the bar

14.And she holds up an invisible wine glass

15.Raise to the future, drink to the past

16.We used to chase down coffee

17.Baby, bring the bottle to bed

18.And we drank in the moment like whiskey hundred proof

19.In 1968, he did shots with the Doors at Whiskey-a Go-Go

20.Then fill up your cup ‘till you’re drunk on red wine

21.I am the king of Bourbon Street

22.Our heads were numb from frozen margaritas

23.Now six months later you’ll come and tell me over coffee that you’ve turned to someone else’s hand

24.Leos’ is the bar up in heaven


....and I'll raise a glass to even more great music in 2008.

Only 6 left to go guys! I'm off to bed and wonder if they'll be answered by the morning.

Thanks to all who have participated so far and hope that 2008 has got off to a great start for you all.

Paddy,

Can we have another recap? My tired brain is confused trying to figure out which ones still need an answer.

Number 8 Never Lived At All

Karen Paddy has edited the answers into his original post, but scrolling back and forth might make you dizzy.. oh wait that must still be the effect of NYE 2008 !!

Good Luck

Hey Karen,
I thought that had to be from Rollaway Bed, but couldn't find the exact set of words in the song anywhere (at least not on the lyrics pages - though we all know that Ellis alters lyrics frequently...) Ah, well. At least my gut feeling was right :D

That completes the quiz - thanks again everyone for participating. I had fun putting it together - who would've thought that so many songs had references to to drinks in them ??

Glug, glug

Wendy,

I think that's one of those EP lines that has several versions. I'm pretty sure there's been times when he's sung "coffee and toast" and/or "toast and jam". At least that's what this still-tired brain is remembering.... :)
