    I know, but given the context it made me smile anyway.
    Apologies for the misinformation <ok>

    My husband purchased a world map.... gave me a dart and said "throw this and wherever it lands I'm taking you for a holiday when this pandemic is over". Turns out we're spending two weeks behind the fridge. :emoticon-0110-tongu

    Lyrics teaser.

    1. Jesus loves you more than you will know, wo wo wo.

    2. Scoop, Muck and Dizzy and Rolly too, Lofty and Wendy, join the crew.

    3. To the place I belong, West Virginia, mountain momma.

    4. How many ears must one man have before he can hear people cry? Yes, and how many deaths will it take 'til he knows that too many people have died?

    5. Does your granny always tell you that the old songs are the best? Then she's up and rock 'n' rolling with the rest.

    6. Stopped into a church, I passed along the way.

    7. For what is a man? What has he got? If not himself - Then he has naught.

    8. You shake my nerves and you rattle my brain, too much love drives a man insane.

    9. Time can bring you down, time can bend your knees.

    10. No matter what they take from me, they can’t take away my dignity.

    11. I could be your Buzz Lightyear, fly across the globe.

    12. You were content to let me shine, that's your way. You always walked a step behind.

    13. And the sign said, the words of the prophets are written on the subway walls.

    14. No more will my green sea go turn a deeper blue, I could not foresee this thing happening to you.

    15. Threw the bums a dime in your prime, didn't you?

    A friend of mine always wanted to be run over by a steam train.

    When it happened, he was chuffed to bits!

    I think this one is even harder <yikes> See how you get on.

    Lyrics Quiz 3

    a. Realize I dont want to be a miser, confide wisely youll be the wiser, young blood is the lovin upriser

    b. By now you should've somehow realised what you gotta do

    c. But how many heartaches must I stand before I find a love to let me live again

    d. Unaware but underlined, I figured out this story. It wasn't good. But in the corner of my mind I celebrated glory.

    e. I feel safest of all, I can lock all my doors, it's the only way to live

    f. I'm so happy and you're so kind, You want more money - of course I don't mind, to buy nuclear textbooks for atomic crimes

    g. Half past twelve, and I'm watching the late show in my flat all alone. How I hate to spend the evening on my own

    h. Im gonna hit the highway like a battering ram on a silver black phantom bike. When the metal is hot and the engine is hungry, and were all about to see the light

    i. So needless to say I'm odds and ends. But that's me, stumbling away, slowly learning that life is O.K.

    j. When I look in your eyes, I see words I can't describe, And these words I'm tellin' you

    k. We would be warm below the storm, in our little hideaway beneath the waves

    l. You had romance, did you break it by chance over me? If it's so I'd like for you to know that I'm not worth it, you see.

    m. Beyond the door, there's peace I'm sure, and I know there'll be no more...

    n. Nobody feels any pain tonight as I stand inside the rain, everybody knows that Baby's got new clothes

    o. We'd like to know a little bit about you for our files. We'd like to help you learn to help yourself. Look around you. All you see are sympathetic eyes

    I'm not far off the pace then. If it wasn't for S&G, Dylan, and the Beatles, I'd be Nowhere Man. :emoticon-0102-bigsm

    6 is actually a mid 70s song, not 60s.
    20 went straight to number 1, as did most of their mop-top singles. ;)

    I never would have gotten #6. Don't think I've ever heard of them.

    It's embarrassing that I didn't get #20. I looked it up before you posted the hint. :emoticon-0111-blush
