MY FRIENDS ARE PRETTY GOOD WITH THESE LYRICS -
MUCH BETTER THAN I COULD DO FOR SURE


Jeff, Christine, Kelly, and Judith did great, I think. You really amaze me because it's not always easy to associate written lyrics with the songs they are from. Fifteen out of twenty-one is pretty good, I think, and some of them were a little tough, even though I consider most of them classics. Here are the ones you missed:

2 - When you were young and on your own
How did it feel to be alone?


Only Love Can Break Your Heart -
an early Neil Young classic. Ain’t it the truth?

4 - This thing called love I just can't handle it
this thing called love I must get round to it


Crazy Little Thing Called Love -
by Queen. Don’t you want to kick yourself?

12 - Line on your face don’t bother me
Down in my chair when you dance over me
I can't help myself


I've Got To See You Again -
by the wonderful Norah Jones. I just love her.

14 - Say man,
What’s that boy?
I want to tell you 'bout your girlfriend


Say Man -
a Golden Age Rock ‘n’ Roll hit by the legendary Bo Diddley. You’ve got to love the “rap” between these two guys with such politically incorrect lines as “You look like you been whupped with a ugly stick.” *lol*

19 - It's a still life water color,
Of a now late afternoon,
As the sun shines through the curtained lace
And shadows wash the room.


The Dangling Conversation -
by Simon and Garfunkel. I’m a little surprised no one got this even though it’s somewhat dated. It's a bit pretentious but still poetic and has lovely harmonies and phrasing.

20 - I was five and he was six,
we rode on horses made of sticks


Bang, Bang -
by, among others Cher and Nancy Sinatra. My baby shot me down - how could she?

Now, since I wrote a bit about my Cajun heritage yesterday, I thought I’d put up a picture of a simple but succulent dish I prepared yesterday for myself. I’ll put it behind a cut, Christine. ;) Here it is:

Garlic Chicken au jus with Rice

GarlicChicken


I’ve eaten this since a little kid. There are very few ingredients, whole chicken, garlic, salt, pepper, bay leaf, a few herbs and spices. The chicken is browned lightly, then smothered slowly until it’s swimming in its own juices and falling off the bones. Very very tasty and always puts me in a nice mood. Plus, my house smells wonderful too. It’s so heavenly which is good if you’re not afraid of heights.

Have a nice day everyone! :)

*headdesk* I totally forgot about the music quotes!! Argh! Well, I'll try them next time. (Hint, hint) :D

The chicken looks divine and seems easy to do. I can see that in our future, soon. Especially since there was a layer of ice to be scraped off the car this morning; and it's still supposed to be in the 70's the next couple of days.

They're fun to do but a lot of work. I'd like to do more though, and the songs I like are pretty much well-known so it's not like nobody hasn't a clue. I encourage people to try even if they see some have already been identified and always keep the responses behind a cut.

Re: yumm
I hate using boneless chicken except for a few dishes. Sometimes I'll make this and add mushrooms, onions, and other vegetables, then thicken into a dark gravy with a roux. That's what we call chicken stew and it's very good too. This dish, though, is just so sweet and juicy with the flavors of the browned chicken shining through; it's almost a buttery taste. The jus over the plain white rice is so good too. Nobody has time to do stuff like this anymore. Real Cajun food is not what you normally see portrayed, btw, it's pot food, not that spicy, not always pretty to the eye, but so flavorful, rich, and delicious.
