Now, I know I'm no Owen Meanie, but I do believe I was born to do one thing very well and I've been preparing for it my whole life. That one thing: Guess the title and artist of any song that a middle-aged, white man would have on his I-Pod. This skill--nay!--GIFT was called upon this semester, and it earned me and my classmates as many as 30 points extra credit on our quiz grades. Scoff if you like, but those points may have saved many of us from getting a "Low Pass" in statistics. Pathetic? Hell no! Like Owen Meanie, I was born to greatness! And this is what it sounds like:
Bread--I Would Give Anything (see previous excited post)
Red Rider--Lunatic Fringe (admittedly, I was stumped on the band name, but I still earned credit for knowing the song)
Level 42--Something About You
Rush--Closer to the Heart (with help from J. A)
Supertramp--The Logical Song
The Moodie Blues--What a Fool Believes
I would like to state for the record that I knew all but two of the songs played for points, but all credit is due those in my class who were able to jump in for the kill. That'll teach Gary to challenge us again! Go team!
