The Elvis Costello Lyrics Test!

Postby whar » Thu Nov 17, 2005 6:53 am

I scored 66/69, and noticed that he mis-wrote the lyric to Battered Old Bird.

Anyone here a bigger Elvis fan than me?

58/69, well it said i scored higher than anyone that was my age and gender.......dont' know if that's so great though, how many 25 year old girls have taken this test? Oh well, i'll take it as a good thing. I know somebody on this board will get them all. Nice job Whar, sooooo close.

I have horrible test anxiety and bailed after the first three questions. Damn. I thought I was an Elvis fan. Oh wait, I am. I just have other things going on in my feeble mind and the lyrics are scattered around in the cobwebs of my brain.

Well done, whar.

I scored 68 out of 69, and like every test, I'm sitting here obsessing about which one I could have gotten wrong. Thanks for posting that, whar.

They should allow you to go back and see which ones you got wrong. There was one on the first page that was a bit of a stumper.

68 out of 69 (pats self on back). Some of those were tough. I had to look up the one I know I got wrong.

69 out of 69!!! :D :shock: :D

And I was unsure of at least 4 or 5 and guessed, based on what I thought sounded like an Elvis lyric.

Cool test! Thanks Whar!

60- that's OK.
Good enough but not too obsessional.
