Music Appreciation: a short quiz.

(A has no idea this is coming...)

Review the following lyrics (true, Maitresse did not provide the lyrics to the entire song):

1. Identify the name of the song.
2. Identify the creators of the song.
3. Define or give historical context to - "Scaramouch", "Bismillah", and "Beezlebub".
4. Bob your head to the appropriate section of the song.

Each question carries 25% weight, except question #3. Get one right, I'll consider giving the full 25%.

That is all.

"Too late, my time has come
Sends shivers down my spine
Body's aching all the time
Goodbye everybody - I've got to go
Gotta leave you all behind and face the truth
Mama, ooo - (anyway the wind blows)
I don't want to die
I sometimes wish I'd never been born at all

I see a little silhouetto of a man
Scaramouch, scaramouch will you do the fandango
Thunderbolt and lightning - very very frightening me
Gallileo, Gallileo,
Gallileo, Gallileo,
Gallileo Figaro - magnifico

But I'm just a poor boy and nobody loves me
He's just a poor boy from a poor family
Spare him his life from this monstrosity
Easy come easy go - will you let me go
Bismillah! No - we will not let you go - let him go
Bismillah! We will not let you go - let him go
Bismillah! We will not let you go - let me go
Will not let you go - let me go (never)
Never let you go - let me go
Never let me go - ooo
No, no, no, no, no, no, no -
Oh mama mia, mama mia, mama mia let me go
Beelzebub has a devil put aside for me
for me
for me"

Funny! My dad used to give me these kinds of quizzes. He once made me get out of the car and walk home (well, it was just one block) when I cried out incredulously: "Roger Daltry sings?!" I'd only ever seen him on the "Highlander" television series.

I hate comment spam! Agh! (not you, "Calletta"...and by the way, which blog of yours may I link?)

You can link my blog, if you like. My "main" blog is Forever December, which would be the best one to link, since it's the one to which I post most often.

Life between 5th-8th grade just came flooding back to me in a huge crashing wave : ).

Why can I sing every bloody word and cannot for the life of me remember what we had for dinner two nights ago lol.

Ah yes. Queen's second greatest song. Second only to their song that starts off with:

Ah um bah beh...
Ah um bah beh...
Ah um badda beh beh...
