Catch a phrase and you’re sittin’ on top of the world


March 25, 2008 by 8junebugs

Let’s say you’re in your early 30s and you were a Bon Jovi fan before Jon cut his hair. And let’s say you’re sitting around our coffee table playing Catchphrase after a holiday dinner, and the clue for your turn is “Bed of Roses.” You need to get your same-generation girlfriends to guess “Bed of Roses,” but you can’t say bed, of, or roses.

Tell me you wouldn’t belt “I WANNA LAAAAAYY YOU DOWN IN A —” at the top of your lungs.

What? It worked. It wasn’t even off-key. Just loud. I was less exuberant with “La, la, la la la la” for the clue “Smurfs.” That’s just so not rock and roll.

    I owned that song on a casette single and it is the only tape I ever wore out.

    That’s why you got the answer right. Also why I knew you would.

    Harder rock never gets the credit it deserves for music’s best ballads. Except in Addison County, where they’re all still on the arcade jukeboxes.
