Lyrics Quiz 1

Now then, now then, guys and gals while you're all waiting for this epic trip to begin (early February since you ask) hows about a little distraction by way of a lyrics quiz?

See it's not just the titles of songs that name check American towns... there are countless references to American towns and cities in the lyrics of so many songs. So can you name the 12 songs that these lines come from?

1. Got a wife and kid in Baltimore Jack

2. Across the north and south, to Key Largo, love for sale

3. Danny says we gotta go, gotta go to Idaho

4. Jojo left his home in Tucson Arizona, for some California grass

5. Standing on a corner in Winslow Arizona

6. New Mexico ain't bad Lord, the people there they treat you kind

7. Seven years in Michigan

8. Working for a while in a fishing boat, right outside of Delacroix

9. Cause they'll be rockin on the bandstand, in Philadelphia PA

10. I was born in a trunk, in the Princess Theatre in Pocatella, Idaho

11. Well I broke down in East St. Louis, on the Kansas City line

12. She lives in Mojave in a Winnebago, his name is Bobby, he looks like a potato

I think half of these are dead easy and the other half are... er... dead hard. Except number 7, it's dead, dead hard.

And in the spirit of today's pin-up and the host of one of the greatest radio shows of all time... you can have bonus points if you name the artist most commonly associated with the song too.

I'll post a link to the answers later.



  1. I got 9 of em, but don't know the pesky #7. Good to see some kinda obscure Zappa get one.
