Overheard at lunch today: a rowdy bunch of hard-drinking suits playing a noisy game with the restaurant Muzak. It struck me that it might be just as fun to do here, with a slight amendment. Here's how it works:
Propose a song title, giving the name of the artist in a short joke or one-sentence story that plays off either the song's title or its best known lyric.
- "Can You Feel the Love Tonight?"
What Elton John asked as his partner sat down on his lap.
- "I can feel it coming 'In The Air Tonight'... Hold on!"
Phil Collins' apology after a curry dinner.
- "Blue Moon"
Elvis Presley's complaint when a sudden cold snap caught him in the outhouse.
You get the idea—I'm sure we can outdo a crowd of bank tellers and paper pushers!
