The Thirteenth Groanin' Jock Lyrical Challenge

It may be a new year, but there are loose ends to tie up.

The Twelfth Groanin' Jock Lyrical Challenge took place more than a month ago, and answers are now in the comments on that post. The winners from that challenge were Rab (at least I'm presuming he's the mystery anonymous commenter), Stu Who? and The Tomahawk Kid.

However, time marches on, and we've hit unlucky 13 in the challenge that I shamelessly stole from TK himself. The rules are simple - lyrical snippets from five random offerings from The Magic Tune Box are printed below - simply name the artist and song without resorting to Google or other means of cheating.

1. How old are you? Are you old enough? Should you be in here watching that?

2. You love blow and I love puff, And life is like a pipe.

3. My man is smooth like Barry, and his voice got bass, A body like Arnold with a Denzel face.

4. When there's northerners and southerners, And westenders in Eastenders.

5. DJ, gonna burn this goddamn house right down.

Ken, welcome to this far-flung outpost of the worldwide interweb - and apologies for mis-identifying you as Big Rab ;-)

Good luck with the blog!

The only one I recognise is no.5, Sophie Ellis Bexters dittie about a Homicide at a French footballer's house.

It's Murder on Zidanes Floor.

Number 1 is 24 Hour Party People by the Happy Mondays.

Number 2 is Back to Black by Amy Housewine.

No idea on number 3.

Number 4 is Demons by Super Furry Animals.

Jaggy was right with number 5

Mither is chuffed as she managed to recognise 2!! Amy Winehouse and Spiller!

Jaggy - Aye, well spotted. And the old ones are the best....

Rob: Great effort, all correct.

Mither: Well done, and not even stuff that I've made you listen to.

Just number three to get....

I can finally reveal that number 3 was Whatta Man by Salt'N'Pepa.
