Subject: Folkie wins Quiz!
I just KNEW there was a real-life advantage to knowing the words to all those folk songs.
Yesterday's Geo Quiz on NPR wanted a town on the Humber where the Icelandic fishing boats are now going to sell their fish, since nobody in Iceland can afford any... and I remembered the words to Three Score and Ten, and guessed Grimsby, and was right!
Any real-life advantages of knowing lurics, I mean lyrics, for y'all?
