Boy how time flies! It's hard to believe that this is already the tenth and final week of the 2011 LSWE.... and thus, today I present the final Fill in the Blank Monday. While there's been many different specific themes in FitBM this year, many of which were stolen from Krox's upcoming summer LS, today's game is about as generic as possible. We're just looking for numbers today. All of the blanks in the lyrics below can be filled in with a number, which you must pull from the vagueness of your own brains.....
1 point for the title, 1 point for the artist, 1 point for each correctly filled in blank.....
Like _2001__ inches from the midday sun
I hear you whisper and the words
Melt everyone but you stay so cool
2. __73_ men sailed up
From the San Francisco Bay,
Rolled off of their ship
And here's what they had to say.
I think this is a trick. Seattle Mariners?
3. She knows she got everything
A woman needs to get a man, yeah.
How can she use, the things she use
_6_ - __4_ - __3_, what a winning hand!
Las Vegas 51s
... Why am I trying to play my own baseball game?...
4. But I wandered through my playing cards
And would not let her be
One of __quite a few___ vestal virgins
Who were leaving for the coast
Ok, time to try playing LS.
5. Well there's _97__ crosses planted in the courthouse yard
For __97_ families who lost _97__ farms
RAIN ON THE SCARECROW - JOHN COUGAR MELLENCAMP
6. My Maseratti does _105?_
I lost my license, now I don't drive
7. Out where the river broke
The bloodwood and the desert oak
Holden wrecks and boiling diesels
Steam in _____ degrees
8. The foulest stench is in the air
The funk of _40,000_ years
And grizzly ghouls from every tomb
Are closing in to seal your doom
THRILLER - MICHAEL JACKSON
9. In a musty old hall in Detroit they prayed,
In the Maritime Sailors' Cathedral.
The church bell chimed till it rang _12?__ times
10. _____ years have come and gone.
And she's seen a lot of tears
Of the ones who come in
They really seem to need her there.
11. ______ deadbeats living in the back street
north east west south all in the same house
sitting in a back room waiting for the big boom
I'm in a bedroom waiting for my baby
12. Well my father was a gambler down in Georgia,
He wound up on the wrong end of a gun.
And I was born in the back seat of a Greyhound bus
Rollin' down highway _101__
Kroxquo Bonus: Name another song with artist that mentions a number somewhere in the lyrics (The more obscure the number, the better).
a later-80s song from ELO called "Calling America" mentioning flying over on a "747"
5 Point Bonus: The number in Song #2 was connected to San Francisco in another way in 2001. How?
Time to go up and change my guess as that was the year Barry Bonds broke the single season HR record, so I filled in his HR total.
