All This And Answers, Too

You quiz-takers are just heavenly! The theme and all but two of the lines were sussed out in what may have been record time. (What, no Traffic or Stones fans?) Of note, sort of: I wanted to include the Psychedelic Furs song Heaven as well as Tom Waits' Little Trip To Heaven, but both of them give away the title in the first line, which is often a limiting factor in this endeavor.

Let's get to the answers now so I can get to work.

1. I got a dollar in my pocket, there ain't a cloud up above... All That Heaven Will Allow; Bruce Springsteen

2. Save me from this prison, Lord help me get away. Heaven; Los Lonely Boys

3. Sing me a song, you're a singer, do me a wrong, you're a bringer of evil. Heaven And Hell; Black Sabbath

4. Everyone is trying to get to the bar. Heaven; Talking Heads

5. You ride on the swing in and out of the bars, capturing moments of life in a jar... Heaven Is In Your Mind; Traffic

6. On top of the sky is a place where you go if you've done nothing wrong, if you've done nothing wrong. Heaven And Hell; The Who

7. Mama take this badge off of me, I can't use it any more. Knockin' On Heaven's Door; Bob Dylan (also covered by Warren Zevon, Guns 'N' Roses and others)

8. I was happy in the haze of a drunken hour... Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now; The Smiths

9. "Show me, show me, show me how you do that trick, the one that makes me scream," she said... Just Like Heaven; The Cure

10. So, so you think you can tell... Wish You Were Here; Pink Floyd (Do I have to mention that the second line is "heaven from hell"? None of my readers have been living in a cave for the past 25 years, have they? Have you?)

**Bonus** Smell of you baby, my senses, my senses be praised. Heaven; Rolling Stones

As always, thanks for playing and we'll be back with a new one next week.
