How I feel about it all: contemplativecontemplative
Soundtrack: Elton John: Ballad of Danny Bailey



I love this survey...the challenge is to answer the questions using lyrics from one singer/songwriter/band. I picked the lovely and talented team of Elton John and Bernie Taupin.


1. ARE YOU MALE OR FEMALE?

Lady Luck rides a big red Cadillac,
Buys the hoedown show salt and beans
Goes to church to pray for Lucifer,
Milks the male population clean.

--No Shoestrings on Louise


2. DESCRIBE YOURSELF

Papa says that I'm a dreamer,
Says them skeeters bit me one too many times

--Dixie Lily


3. HOW DO OTHER PEOPLE SEE YOU?

Lady Samatha glides like a tiger,
Over the hills with no one beside her.
No one comes near, they all live in fear
But Lady Samantha, she sheds only tears.

--Lady Samantha

4. DESCRIBE YOUR LAST BOYFRIEND/GIRLFRIEND

I used to know this old scarecrow,
he was my song, my joy and sorrow.
Cast along between the furrows of a field
no longer sown by anyone.
I held a dandelion that said the time had come
To leave upon the wind.
Not to return when Summer burned the earth again.

--Curtains


5. WHAT WOULD YOU RATHER BE DOING?

But the biggest kick I ever got,
was doin' a thing called the Crocodile Rock,
While the other kids were rockin' 'round the clock,
we were hoppin' and boppin' to the Crocodile Rock

--Crocodile Rock



6. DESCRIBE WHERE YOU LIVE

And in this vision of my home
the shingled beach did ring,
I saw the lights along the pier
that made my senses sing.

--Grimsby


7. DESCRIBE HOW YOU LOVE

For I am a mirror, I can reflect the moon,
I will write songs for you, I'll be
your silver spoon.
I'm sorry I took your time, I am
the poem that doesn't rhyme.
Just turn back a page, I'll waste away...

--Goodbye


8. SHARE SOME WORDS OF WISDOM

Love is the opening door,
Love is what we came here for;
No-one could offer you more;
Do you know what I mean?
Have your eyes really seen?

--Love Song
