Tag Lines

Lend me your eyes and I’ll quote you a song…

Tag Lines Just a reminder, our blog entry titles (tag lines) are almost all excerpts from song lyrics. These are intended as a bit of entertainment for Michael and me to come up with àpropos items and for our readers to identify songs and artists and let us know via comments, private emails, or conversations. There are no rules and thus no way to “cheat” – we don’t care if you find the answers stored in your brain, online, or elsewhere! We’re just having some fun and hope you are, too. We do limit ourselves to songs we actually know but we almost always have to look up the lyrics to get them right. Someday we may post a list of songs we were tempted to use but didn’t; we don’t want to offend or horrify anyone who doesn’t share our somewhat macabre sense of humor.
