Pointless Game

Here’s a pointless game. I’ll use song lyrics to ask a question, and you try to find lyrics from a different song that fit as an answer to the question. Here’s an example to get the creative juices flowing.

“If I was a dancer, where would I dance?” (Psychosis, The Refreshments)

“In a happy little foreign town, where the stars hung upside down…” (We Danced Anyway, Deanna Carter)

The first person to answer the question can then add a question of their own, to be answered by ensuing comments. Assuming anyone actually tries this, I’ll try to publish the comments immediately to make things less confusing.

Okay, here’s the question. I’ll make it an easy one:

“Who do you love?” (Love, Come Lighten My Load, Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers)

[answer:]"I'm in love with Stacy's Mom."

[next question:] "Everybody loves a clown, so why don't you?"

[answer:] "Send in the clowns."

[next question:] "Why do birds suddenly appear, every time you are near?"

[answer:] "On August first, 1981 I cycled to Scott's house with a BB gun." (I assume because there is some kind of bird decoy around.)
