5/11 Lyrical Pursuit Lyric

I had a fun trip last night driving to Washing DC for training. I forgot to bring my CDs so I had to channel surfing. There is some fun and strange music playing on a Sunday evening. Like a jazz version of Ode to Billy Joe or the metal version of Careless Whisper. I got to listen to Alice Cooper's show for a bit and I was treated to the syndicated show, Flashback, which I haven't heard in 15 years. All in all it was a good ride.

(See rules/intro here.)

So you try

Try to stay in the middle

And then you cry

Well, you cry just a little

Cheaters will be forced to watch C-Span for 24 hours straight.

Clue #1: Alan Parsons was the engineer for their first album and the producer on their second
Clue #2: The song is from their 3rd album, which was released in 1978, Life Beyond LA
Clue #3: In 1982 Bruce Hornsby joined the band for a short time.
Clue #4: The band is named for the ancient Greek mythological drink of the gods.

Once again there was no winner. I guess I have to go back to all the early MTV stuff.

How Much I Feel by Ambrosia was the correct answer.

May totals: Keith 5, Stephen 5

Hey, we're in DC (essentially). How long are you here?

(I don't recognize the lyrics, but 1978/Alan Parsons probably means I have heard the song).

I'm in Reston, Va until Friday. How close is that?

Right band, wrong song.

You sure about that? So far, it seems I'm right.

It could be the "the song that somebody knows but they haven't read this blog yet"

I knew that I'd recognize the song when I saw it.

We're on the Md. side of the river, so not far but not quite around the corner from Reston. I'd offer to come down and buy you a beer for all those softball mid-70's lyrics you've thrown my way...but I have this hockey game to go to. ;-)

If you come back this way again, let me know!
