     The game is simple....I ask for five examples of songs, the first person who gets them right gets to pick their own five examples. Obviously, no one can stop anyone from Googling, but if you can avoid it, do so.

     GIMMIE FIVE songs where the cover was a bigger hit than the original, with YouTube clips, if possible.

     The choice is simple; refuse to create, and refuse to grow, or build, with care and love.

I'm at work so the security settings don't allow YouTube clips.  I'll give it a go nevertheless.

1. Blinded By The Light- Manfred Mann (Bruce Springsteen)
2. When Will I Be Loved- Linda Ronstadt (Everly Brothers)
3. Your Love (Keeps Lifting Me Higher)- Rita Coolidge (Jackie Wilson)
4. Leather And Lace- Don Henley & Stevie Nicks (Waylon Jennings/Jesse Colter)
5. Without You- Harry Nilsson (Badfinger)

I'll wait for a confirmation that my answers are correct before doing the next 5.

     The Jackie Wilson original of "Higher and Higher" charted higher than the Rita Coolidge cover; you were correct about the others.

GO FOR IT!

I'm hoping forms of the word "sex" are okay, as "sex" is still in the title..
I Want Your Sex (George Michael)
Sex (I'm A...) (Berlin)
Sexy Eyes (Dr. Hook)
Sexy Girl (Glenn Frey)
You Sexy Thing (Hot Chocolate)

As long as it's okay, then the next 5 songs will have the word "blood" (or bloody) in the title.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
