    Cyburbia Trivia - Version 2.0 - Week #1 - Cities & Places

    Reviving Downtown's trivia game. I've recreated it, with a "Cities & Places" theme.

    Play it here:

    Good luck!

    Ouch...
    You get all squeezed up inside/Like the days were carved in stone/You get all wired up inside/And it's bad to be alone

    You can go out, you can take a ride/And when you get out on your own/You get all smoothed out inside/And it's good to be alone

    So I answered the first three and thought "hey, this isn't that bad"! Then I proceeded to get all of the remaining questions wrong.

    "Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."

    The music questions got me.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    I can change the category whenever we want. I figure we can switch categories every week.

    I'm open to future category suggestions....feel free to post them here.

    That's what I thought, too - I guessed on a couple and got them right.

    But then, I guessed a few wrong, too.

    7/10....missed the music questions except for the Ike & Tina one. She wrote a book that had Nutbush in the title. I remember the song "If you're going to San Francisco...." but it was a few years before I was born...ah well.

    Bump.

    Just a reminder, that the questions change daily, and still looking for suggestions on next week's topic.

    This one was harder than yesterday's quiz. 5/10.
