#FriendFriday - I Test Daniel On His Pop Music Knowledge

15 November 2013
Friend Friday is back! Whilst I give you a minute to calm down, I'll explain today's edition. Daniel is a massive music fan like myself, so I thought I'd put his pop music knowledge to the test via a Skype conversation!

Daniel will be starting his own blog very VERY soon too, finally, which I'll link you to asap, you're going to love it!

Here's a transcript of how it went...


1. Sit back down on the couch where we made love the first time and you said to me
There's SOMETHANG, SOMETHANG ABOUT THIS PLACE
Woo hoo, woo hoo.
How bad is it that I had to think about that? Flop stan.
(Lady Gaga - You And I)

2. 'Cause when I look in the mirror. I don't even recognise myself
Omg, I need a second... I've got the eyes of the winner? No, wait that's wrong isn't it?
It's close enough haha... got the heart of a winner
Haha, wrong body part :P
(Dappy - No Regrets)

Leader of the pack get on the track, swing your bat and don't look back
Baby in the corner learning quick, keep up, keep up?
Afraid not. Trapped in a tangle, too much to handle, too hot, the pan goes pop
Aw, I didn't think so either xD
I'll give you a point for knowing the song though.
(Nicola Roberts - Beat Of My Drum)

Beauty queen on a silver screen, living life like I'm in a dream
 ...I know that I've got a big egoO I really don't know why it's such a big deal thO
Yes. I would've also accepted 'dildo,' haha. That sounds wrong...
LOL
(Marina and the Diamonds - Primadonna)

I'm a female rebel can't you tell? Bang on the dashboard, just chipped a nail
It's 4x4, and...driving so fast I'm bout' to piss on mahself?
That's half, there's a bit in front
Hmmm, let me try and remember... it's like on the tip of my brain... It's gone.
Lean out the window thats when I yell. 1 point though!
(Miley Cyrus - 4x4)

SCORE: 7/10

Name 5 tracks from Cinderella's Eyes that weren't singles.
Ah Rob, I could do this with my eyes closed :P Fish Out of Water, Gladiator, Take a Bite, sticks + stones...and just because I can haha; I, Everyone's Got to Learn Sometime, Cindererlla's Eyes, (the three singles), and there are two more I'm forgetting aren't I? Damn, um, well there's Fix Me Up, which was a B-Side? And Disco, Blisters and a Breakdown or something like that, and..ah hell, those last two are going to allude me. In the Top 3 best pop albums of the last three years tho...
Yes, I agree! The only one you missed was Porcelain Heart... no bonus points though.

Name 5 Sugababes singles from the Mutya/Heidi/Keisha line-up
Fuck, okay, lemme think. Oh wait Heidi. That makes it easier, I thought it was the original line-up at the first...
Nahh I couldnt even do that.
Too Lost In You, Round Round, Hole In the Head, Freak Like Me...and one more, I want to say Change but I think that was after Mutya left, oh God, umm, okay screw it I'll go with Change
4/5
Sooo close
You could've had... PUSH DA BUTTEN
I was gonna use that but thought that was definitely post-Mutya, my Sugababes timeline is all out of whack.

This ones the hardest, maybe... name the 5 lowest charting saturdays singles
Work was like Top 30, Forever Is Over Top 40, umm... okay... lemme think of all their singles..their debut was #8, Up like #5, Issues #3ish, Just Can't Get Enough #2, Work #24ish, Forever Is Over #37ish, Ego #11ish, Missing You #3ish, Higher #10ish, Notorious #7ish, All Fired Up #3ish, My Heart Takes Over Top 30ish, 30 Days top 10ish...then What About Us #1, Gentleman #12 and Disco Love #5? So, after all that haha, I guess..
5) Forever Is Over #37, 4) My Heart Takes Over #26, 3) Work #24, 2) Gentleman #12
1) Ego (I think this might be the other way round, either it was #11 or #16?)
You got 4 of the songs right, and the other one of them I'm very 'really?' about.
5) Work - 22, 4) My Heart Takes Over - 15, 3) Gentleman - 14, 2) Higher - 10, 1) Ego - 9
Forever is over was #2 hahaha.
