Well here we are deeply entrenched in winter.

Mid January in the Midwest makes for wet and wonderful weather if softly falling flakes are your fancy.

Dismal dreary days abound as well amidst the occasional glimpse of sunshine.

All this Wednesday Wandering winter wisdom got the camel contemplating quotes of  songs involving alliteration.

So here’s the first annual Midwinter Nights loved alliteration lyrical quiz.  I’ll give you the line. You name the song and the artist.  I’ll let you know the next line and the answer.

1)  A while ago somewhere I don’t know when …

2)  Got the bubble headed bleach blond comes on at 5 …

3)  By the window once I waited for you …

4)  Little old lady got mutilated late last night …

5)  Wordlessly watching he waits by the window and wonders

While I wanna think you won’t read ahead for the answers, I feel the need to put some filler in so temptation to instantly glance ahead is momentarily halted.

Here’s is a GREAT winter song video.  It may actually contain the answer to one of the questions.  If you have 5:33 in your busy day, I recommend you watch it:

1)  I was watching a movie with a  friend…
