Saturday 9

Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we've committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do "random questions," so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don't have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today's meme!

Saturday 9: Start Me Up (1981) ... because Kwizgiver recommended The Rolling Stones

Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here
1) That's a goat wearing a high heel. What's on your feet as you answer these questions? Fuzzy socks.  I always wear fuzzy socks when at home.  The dogs know I'm going out somewhere when I put on shoes.  Because I wear them all the time, I go through the socks quickly and I'm glad that the Dollar Store always has a nice selection.

2) More fashion: In the video for this song, Mick is wearing white pants with an elastic waistband. Are you wearing a belt as you answer these questions? No.  I'm wearing shorts with an elastic waistband.  I can't think of anything I wear a belt with.  I don't even know if I own a belt.
3) In this song, Mick pleads, "Don't make a grown man cry." When is the last time you shed a tear? Oh, Lord, I cry so easily.  This afternoon I was reading a wonderful article about Frasier that made me cry several times.  I probably cry more about sentimental things than I do about sad things

4) Keith Richard has said this is a song he could play "forever and ever." 

What in your life doesn't get old, no matter how often you do it?

Writing Funny the World!

5) While The Rolling Stones enjoy performing songs, like this one, from Tattoo You, Mick Jagger has dismissed the songs from their 1967 album Their Satanic Majesties Request as "rubbish." Do you have a favorite Rolling Stones song?

I am not now and never have been a Rolling Stones fan, so am not familiar with their songs.  I probably know some, but don't know that they are Rolling Stones.

6) This recording of "Start Me Up" features a cowbell. Do you remember which Saturday Night Live host made, "More cowbell!" a catchphrase?

No, I don't, but it became such a catch phrase around here that when I made the wedding cake for my daughter and her husband-to-be, I decorated it with cowbells. 

7) Bassist Bill Wyman once said he thought he should have been a archivist because he loved to make lists. Do you have a to-do list?
No.  I have a calendar that I keep on my desk so I can check it each day, but I don't make lists.

8) Mick finds it hard to stand still when he sings, not only on stage but also in the studio. The engineer for this song reports that Mick would have to run across the room to get back to the microphone for his vocal. Are you more fidgety, or still?
If I'm standing, fidgety.  My body doesn't like to just stand.

9) Random question: Do you believe men are inherently more sensible than women?
I don't think it's a gender thing.  Some people are more sensible than others, but I wouldn't say it had anything to do with their gender.
