For anyone who's not over at Scaryduck's place reading his regular Friday story, do join in the fun and try out this quiz. It's the same drill as before. Here are two sets of lyrics. What do these songs have in common?
[Editorial note. I will stop all these music-related posts soon, and get back to something more interesting next week. Possibly.]
I couldn't stop movin' when it first took hold
It was a warm spring night at the old town hall
There was a band called The Jokers, they were layin' it down
Doncha know I'm never gonna lose that funky sound
Don't want to argue, I don't want to debate
Don't want to hear about what kind of food you hate
You won't get no dessert 'till you clean off your plate
Google is cheating. So is Yahoo (I'm looking at you, Black Knight). Wikipedia is in a grey area.
The answer is not 'they're both by American artists', although that is in fact true.
The above lyrics are copyrighted, and not by me. I may not get around to acknowledging the winner right away. There is no prize. E&OE. There may be multiple possible answers (see 'Hint', above) but I'm only looking for one specific one. All other disclaimers are incorporated by implication. Anything nasty you pick up from the web by breaking the Rule is entirely your own fault. Etc.
