The love song of C. Robert Kroeger
In honor of Nickelback’s Here and Now Tour kicking off this month, the Eye has prepared a little quiz to distract you from studying real art.
Out of the following 10 quotes, six are from Nickelback songs, and four are from the poetry of T.S. Eliot.
But don’t be fooled—this is a lot harder than you think. Post your scores in the comments.
a. And would it have worth it, after all,
Would it have been worth while
b. So I would have had him leave,
So I would have had her stand and grieve
c. HURRY UP PLEASE IT’S TIME
HURRY UP PLEASE IT’S TIME
d. Good night, ladies, good night, sweet ladies,
good night, good night
e. He who was living is now dead
We who are living are now dying
With a little patience
f. Do I dare
Disturb the universe
g. Too many long lines in a row
I love the powder on your nose
h. I stand, I fall
I bounce off these four walls
And I see you much better than I see
And you know all that I’m thinking
i. You can sing along: I touch your hand, touch
your face I think the fruit is rotten
j. I want a brand new house
On an episode of Cribs
And a bathroom I can play baseball in
And a king-size tub big enough
For 10 plus me
