Jenney - Q43 "Peaceful Waters" is correct congrats.. ! - now thats an old one - I like Stone Wall's vistory of it.....

JohninCt. - Q44 "Don Quixote" - is correct yes ! - i wondered when I wrote it thoug, if I made an ambiguous case with "King" being rife in "Protocol", but I tried to have the phrase conclusive....and, like you guys, I am not doing searches on words - going by memory, more fun, as I am sure it is for you... well done...

OK that leaves Q48
".....tested......" hard one sorta..... another clue.... "ten thousand" - that ought to bust it....

we're close to Q's 49 - 54 - SOMEBODY BLAST AWAY Q48

RM known in the Pentagon as"Rem", the "Remidiator"walks rapidly into the WarRoom, and immediately to the edge of the DefCom group round-table, drops his folder on the table for emphasis, tears his RayBan Aviator glasses off with one hand only as they do in movies, slumps, then looking tired, sits down and rubs his eyes.General Rem,announces with the demeanour befitting a man responsible for immediate decisions with or without he President's approval as necessary, "Gentleman",and looking around the room and visually noting the two women in the room with the slightest of detectable perfunctory nods,"and ladies.. I have had to invoke the de facto rights of executive decision; functionally by executing the HomeLand Secuity Directive from SB 1175 we all know as H.S.A Directive #10101, Codename "CleanSweep", as of 7:28 P.M. Zulu time, under my own provisional authority. The President has concurred subsequent to the action,and, infact, endorsed it in principal after hearing the situation that unfolded in sector Q48, as you all are aware of." He stared sharply and briefly at the N.S.A. Director of Satellite Imagery Reconnaisance Geographic Systems,, who for arcane security reasons was cryptically referred to in acronym as S.I.R.G.E.O.S., akaThe Earth Visual Enhancer, in further arcane and cryptic acronym :
S.I.R.G.E.O.S.T.E.V.E , who had this poignant, but morose thought: "at what cost....a thermonuclear close range , no fallout neutron bomb, of minute megatonnage...a whole small area...... a thread... of lives.... at what cost.."


lol congrats RM - yeah it was time to nuke Q48 I agree, now, new Q's !

Q49......so other than nothin'...
Q50......sweeter than......
Q51......my brother.....
Q52......older
Q53......lee
Q54......tacky

HAVE FUN

Simply guess the song, from the increasingly fewer words out of Gord's lyrics. Similar to past threads when we did a LOT of quizzing, but I am curious to see how FEW words, or obscure the reference, will instantly turn on a Lighthead-bulb:

WHAT SONG CONTAINS THE WORD(S) :

EZ to start, harder as we go if'n you guys like it:

Q# 1...... was a time in this.........

Q# 2.......a bit of allright....

Q# 3...... songs we know

Q# 4.......golden prairie

Q# 5........coming back

Q# 6........nails

an even half dozen to start; hope you like it. I'll post 6 at a time if'n you do.

answers format so my eyes don't cross worse *suggestion only*
Note: these answer samples do not pertain to above....
Q1 - song is: If You Could Read My Mind . Album name is (same)
Q2 - song is: Beautiful. Album name is - Don Quixote
and etc

Sly says: go for it .....

~geo steve
I like a bit of an intellectual challenge, so I'd say go for it, and the more the merrier!

timetraveler - thanks ... but I am confused....are you just advocating the thread and thanking me - in which case I say "you're welcome" ! Or, did you have a song to tender as an answer to one, and forgot to post it ? Just a friendly "I like the thread ?" - Thats cool. Its been fun so far...

I like the quiz thread, but I don't have time to look up the answers. I answer the ones I know off the top of my head - if someone hasn't beat me to it.

It's a cool idea for a thread even if the interest has dwindled down.
