Heaven IS Too Far Away

Ugh. The music round at last night's Pub Quiz was Power Ballads, and now I have Warrant stuck in my head.

Here, I'll share the pain. (If you only want to hear a snippet of "Heaven," fast-forward to about the nine-minute mark.)

What's worse, nobody on the Flying Monkeys knows Power Ballads from Polka, so they pretty much handed the answer sheet to me and said have at it. I could come up with the majority of the titles, but amazingly enough couldn't remember musical juggernauts like Europe, Mr. Big, and White Lion to save my life. There should have been some Bon Jovi or Def Leppard or Van Halen in there, damn it; I knew the Poison, Motley Crue, Skid Row, and Whitesnake songs. Grr!

Anyhow, it was totally frustrating because I'm sure that I heard all of these songs a jillion times during junior high/high school but I got only four points. I think it's high time to institute a half-point option if you can name the song title but not necessarily the artist.

Despite the fact that the Monkeys probably wouldn't have gotten any points in that round without me, I still feel as though I dragged them down to at least fifth place, if not worse. Luckily for them, I have something else to do next Monday night.
