Three Dog Night

Welcome to Rock 'n Roll Fridays. We are like other memes in that we will ask you thirteen questions each and every Friday. But our little "twist" is that each week we will pick a singer, band, era or category and pick thirteen of their songs. Each of our questions will be based on the lyrics. Got it? Great! Let's begin this week's meme!

Today we picked Three Dog Night.

1. Black and White: “The world is black The world is white
It turns by day and then by night The child is black The child is white
Together they grow to see the light To see the light”
What are your favorite black and white items?

2. Joy To The World: “If I were the King of the world, Tell you what I'd do,
I'd throw away the cars and the bars and the wars
And make sweet love to you”
What would YOU do if you were King of the World?

3. Easy To Be Hard: “How can people have no feelings, How can they ignore their friends
Easy to be proud, easy to say no”
Have you ever ignored a friend?

4. Old Fashioned Love Song: “Just an old-fashioned love song, One I'm sure they wrote for you and me, Just an old-fashioned love song, Comin' down in 3-part harmony”
What song do you think was written about you?

5. Out In The Country: “Before the breathin' air is gone, Before the sun is just a bright spot in the nighttime, Out where the rivers like to run, I stand alone and take back somethin' worth rememberin'”
When was the last time you took back something worth rememberin?

6. Family of Man: “Memories replacing the loves that we've lost, Burning our bridges as soon as they're crossed, Factories built where the rivers ran, And time running out for the family of man”
Since the nuclear plant tragedy in Japan, what alternate power source would you prefer?

7. Shambala: “Everyone is helpful, everyone is kind, On the road to Shambala,
Everyone is lucky, everyone is so kind, On the road to Shambala”
Where have you been where everyone is overly friendly?

8. Eli’s Comin: “Well you better hide your heart, your loving heart
Eli's a-comin' and the cards say... a broken heart”
What good advice did you ignore and then later regret?

9. One: “It's just no good anymore since she went away, Now I spend my time just making rhymes of yesterday”
Can you make up a rhyme?

10. Never Been To Spain: “Well I never been to heaven, But I been to Oklahoma
Well they tell me I was born there, But I really don't remember”
What is your earliest memory as a child/baby?

11. Mama Told Me Not To Come: “Just open the window brother, and let me catch my breath”
Where was the last really stinky place you were in?

12. One Man Band: “Here I am, take my hand, I'm your man, Baby, let me be your one man band”
Do you play an instrument?

13. Liar: “You've taken my life, so take my soul, That's what you said and I believed it all
I want to be with you as long, As you want me to, I won't move away
Ain't that what you said?”
When was the last time you were lied to?

Coming soon: Something From The 80s!
