Okay tonight is another My 3 songs.
So what is tonight's contest? Or better yet what are the songs?
Well tonight I'm going to repeat a previous contest that was held late and no one got the answer.
You see sometimes there is a Chicago Cubs Baseball game and that makes so we have to have the contest late. Well it seems as though a lot of folks go to bed and the ones left awake could not unravel the conundrum of My 3 Songs for that night.
Okay here are the songs:
- Valley Girl - Frank Zappa
- Melt With You - Modern English
- Leaving Las Vegas - Sheryl Crow
I will tell you in a moment.
First let's talk about this process.
A free small pizza from Larry Bobe's Pizza In Lawrenceville. Now let me tell you when it comes to great pizza we all know that the local restaurants are the best not the national chains. If you have never had a Bobe's Pizza, you need to make a trip to Lawrenceville or Vincennes. I prefer the Larry Bobe's in Lawrenceville, just something about their sauce and that sausage is awesome also. Now there is also Monical's pizza in Robinson they are great... they have a little spiciness to their sauce that I just love. But we're talking about Bobe's pizza. Maybe I'll do a blog entry on Saturday.
Simply, I play 3 songs, you tell me what they have in common and you win. Oh yeah, you have to be the first caller with the correct answer.
What do I mean by saying they have something in common? Well, maybe they are all from the same album, or all from the same artist, or all written by same writer, all feature the same vocalists or were all number 13 during the 13th week of each decade for the past 30 years. (that's a bit far fetched but if I wanted to think that hard well...look out.)
So what is the answer to tonight's contest?
Answer: Nicolas Cage
Valley Girl by Frank Zappa influenced the creation of the film by the same name.
Melt with You by Modern English is from the Valley Girl Soundtrack.
Nicolas Cage's career launching film - Valley Girl.
Leaving Las Vegas...from film of same name.
Nicolas Cage played lead and won the Oscar in 1995 for his role.
So, there you have it my 3 songs.
btw, we play right around 7:30 pm every Wednesday night. Unless there's a game then delayed until after the game.
