Points: The Return

Okay, here’s the deal. Back before I became a blogging elitist, in the week or so prior to a bloggers’ happy hour, I’d offer up a bunch of I-66 Points. Based mostly around pop culture, points were earned by identifying the movie and character based on a movie quote, or identifying the song title and artist from a lyric, etc. I’d put up a few lyrics and the first to answer correctly in the comments would get the points. The person with the most points gained before the happy hour won a prize (often booze related).

Things are going to be a little different this time than they have in the past. Formal happy hours aren’t happening as frequently, thus the prize has yet to be decided (it may still be booze, but it may have to be something more portable). Additionally, in an effort to prevent point monopolization, only one answer is permitted per comment, and comments may be left at 5 minute intervals (in the past, one could answer every question at once and nobody else would have a chance if they came a few minutes later). The most important rule is still in effect: No cheating, especially not of the internet variety.

This morning, the points are based around song lyrics. Give me both the correct artist name and song title in the comments for the points (point value always indicated in brackets).

1. I’m strong on the surface
not all the way through
I’ve never been perfect
but neither have you [3]

2. Can’t believe I could think that she
would just follow me everywhere I go
I just wrestle with you in my dreams
and wake up making love to a pillow [5]

3. Nine and a half weeks
is better than 12 steps
I keep trying to remind you
to keep telling yourself [4]

    Don’t be so hard on yourself. -1.5 at the worst.

  5. And who said no good can come from Twilight?! That’s off the soundtrack, and I was just listening to it this morning.

    Now now, don’t give Twilight any more credit than it deserves. That song was made for the last Linkin Park album, and Twilight used it in the soundtrack.
