Anyway, I have no idea and why can't we google?

Jack said...

Val: LOLOL! You can't google cause that would be CHEATING!

Jack: Yeah,yeah,it's hard being 25. (by the way...you aren't going to attempt to answer the trivia questions?)

Randi, can't you make these a little more easy? Perhaps you can take over where, oh my, I've forgotten his blog name, the one about the dog, did Sat Film Night. I do much better with those.

Jaime: Hey, it's so good to see you here! No, your guess is completely WRONG!!! And, you are talking about Wanderer...yep, you and I were pretty good at those film questions:)

OK, think I remember #1 and 4 WITHOUT GOOGLE-ING!!!

1) Neil Diamond

4) Paul Simon

Elie said...

OK, I checked and I was wrong on #1 and right on #4. But Neil Diamond did write another Monkees hit - can you guess it?

cruisin-mom said...

Elie, good catch (even if you had to google it!).
So here is my confession...I thought I had written the title of that other song you are talking about (I'll wait to see if someone else can guess it). But it turns out that Daydream Believer was a more timely choice, being that the writer of the song just died a few days ago.

(by the way...you aren't going to attempt to answer the trivia questions?)

I might.

Wendy said...

I have NO clue.

Eagerly awaiting the answer...

cruisin-mom said...

okay...here are the answers:

1. John Stewart (and no, not the host of the Daily Show)
2. Cat Stevens
3. Charlie Chaplain
4. Paul Simon (yay for you, Elie!)

Thanks... you should check A Little Indulgence ... I think you will be quite charmed by it.

The only one I know is Daydream Believer: written by Neil Diamond. Guess I'll have to google the others

HeyJoe said...

OK, scratch my answer. I guess the rumor that Neil Diamond wrote Day Dream Believer is one of them there Urban Myths.

I am Loser

cruisin-mom said...

Hi Joe...it's confusing, because Neil Diamond wrote "I'm a believer"!
thanks for stopping by!

HeyJoe said...

THAT's the one - "I'm a Believer." Still a Monkees song. OK I'm not crazy then.
