Q388 ...guarantee
song-Alberta Bound
lyric-Oh the skyline of Toronto is something you'll get onto
But they say you've got to live there for a while
And if you got the money you can get yourself a honey
With a written guarantee to make you smile

Q390 - ...evergreen
Song - Song the Minstrel Sang
lyric - His aim was mean and his shot was clean
And his suit was the sheen of evergreen
The folks he knew hadn't naught to fear
When the sheriff was there they were over here

C'mon....it's fun....do another round of WWGT (what was geosteve thinking) quizzers.
One other thought, Ron - not only was I not offended (I thought it was kind) - but...

"Yes, your mind is much more diverse than mine" - no noo... I would never imply or state my mind is more diverse than someone elses or yours, what I meant was "divergant' - I think from the top down - most ppl think from the bottom up !
It was a huge obstacle when doing homework in high school and college - with predominantly convergant minds than my awkward and not so desirable divergant mind - (not diverse) - no, Ron, your thinking is very astute and (I envy this) succinct and to the point. I am a rambler, a day-dreamer , I sit up at 4 am and say 'Thats it !' - and write down a solution to something on paper and pencil by my bedside....no divergant thinking is weird - not so enviable lol.... - and in no way better than your thinking Ron.... lol

sorry - why do we keep thinking we offended each other , when I think we havn't lol.... ?

Q 389 - ...heavenly...
Song - Endless Wire
lyric: Deep in the dark of a heavenly night with you
Down in the black of a bottomless hole
There's a few good second hand scenes

Other than the line 'deep in the dark of a heavenly night with you' this is not one of my fave songs so can't imagine why i knew this..

Ma'am,

That's not a happy song. (but, then again, I don't know what geosteve is thinking)

I submit :

Song : Bend In The Water

Lyric : With a heavenly sky and moonlight on the bay

well sir, that line alone makes me 'happy'/'dreamy'..

maybe both lines together would be 'ecstatic' making.

'WWCT' ? lol happy tune ? There are some terrific songs on that album = Tattoo, Whispers of the North' - but you just gotta look at the album cover photo - thats wy I called it his 'pissed off' album - he looks angry on the cover !. Well anyway....You've got an ambiguous song vs the intended, but the theme I gotta stay consistent with - Happy songs. So -good guess Char - but I gotta hold to the theme, and not necessairly the intended,song - I'll take an ambiguous song, that is happy, but.....sorry Char - WWCT ? lol...

Thanks for playing...

You're on to my divergant mind path Ron. Its happening... are you suddenly growing a lot of neanderthal-like body hair, the final sigh is no beginning and no end, no upside and no downside, the Mobius path of thought. Visualize one end of the path, twisting it once, and re-attaching it. That is the one-side ribbon trail. You are on the jouney to divergant serenity, Ron. Next, you must learn to control chaos, and qauntify its fractal crenulations. Then, you are the start of the long jouney that leads nowhere but inward....and cheap incense. lol..

You got the song right Ron, like I said, you are able to emulate the 'wwgt' lol

Really Ron. you got it ! - Hangdog Hotel Room !

(Bowing to the master) we're not worthy, we're not worthy......! lol

A visting dignitary ! Joveski - good to have you playin on this one - we've been seeing somewhat less I'd say of ya for maybe a week now . And thats...OK.....cause he's good enough, smart enough, and gosh darn it - people like him ! (SNL skit... hope U all remember.....anybody.?.....dink dink dink) - the dink dink dink's are my latest attempt at repetitive, or re-appearing comedy sound effect , Mende - did you ever see Pixie and Dixie cartoons when you were little ? I don't know hpw old you are - I'm 50 and caught the last couple years of those darn little mice.lol....last year actualy lol.....hmmm...anyway dink....dink.. stalking away with the cheese left out by mistake - and sneaking by the cat - dink...dink.....dink.....dink......anybody ?

Ok.... OH - THE GAME ! lol...
Q392 .... proud = 14 karat gold & equal happy ?

Well, yes to it works, no matter that it is not the intended song this round... but I'd have to honestly rule its not a happy or cheerful song. So... Mende - if you disagree on that note, we'll run it up the flagpole - we're still a democracy in here - for now, I've gotta say nope. Sorry Bro' . Anyhoo - good to see its down in the 60's and 70's your way.... sound right ? Thanks for playin Mende - the other song..........left - I have the perfect one-sentence extra clue on it....
