New Game!!

Remember yesterday (or today, whenever) you read that I've decided to start a new game on this here ol blog. Well, I'm super excited about it, because I like goofy games...trust me, most of you will probably think it's D-U-M-B. But stick with me and just play along...you might win something.

So here it is:

Name That Tune!!!

Yes, you read that right...Name That Tune!

It's not really name that tune as much as name the song that the lyrics are from.

Here's how it works. I will give you a line from a song, then the first person to leave me a comment in the comments section (not email, not Facebook, not Twitter...COMMENT SECTION) will win that day. Whoever has the most "wins" at the end of the month wins that month's prize! Yay--prizes!

Here's an example (a very simple one, but still, I want you to fully understand):

"It's after midnight and something evil's lurking in the air."

Then, you would quickly leave me a comment and say, "Thriller" by Michael Jackson. First one to comment with the correct song wins.

Got it?

The Name That Tune lyric-of-the-day will be at the bottom of each of my blog posts. If I don't have a regular post that day, the lyric-of-the-day will be the post. So check back each day. Even if someone has posted an answer, go ahead an post your answer, it will help me judge how hard or easy the song was and which genres are more popular, etc. Mmmm-k?

Now, here is my disclaimer...I don't really listen to country music, but I promise I will see what I can find in that genre. I'll mix it up, you'll get a little bit of everything, even rap. Hee! If you all seem to be having a difficult time with the song...no correct answers coming in, then I'll give you a hint.

So what do you think? Fun? Stupid? Ridiculous? Too-much-time-on-my-hands? (um, hello, NO, I don't). Let me know what you think.

Since there's not much time left in December, the prize won't be much...how 'bout a $10 gift card to Starbucks! Ummm, yum. I need a Starbucks right now!

So here's today's Name That Tune lyric-of-the-day (we'll start with an easy one in the Christmas spirit):

"Long lay the world in sin and error pining. 'Til He appeared and the Spirit felt its worth"

What song is that...leave it in the comments! I'll post the score tomorrow (who's winning, etc.)

I agree with Impulsive Addict. The Devil in Pigtails is right.
