Chux, being that your unintentionally-profane question has remained unanswered, and the fact that I have no idea how to even come up with a fake wrong answer, I offer a new one.

Can you create a 6-class school schedule of songs that feature school type subjects? Yes, yes you can. For example, if a song included the word "anthropology" in it, and if such a subject could be taught at that level, you could use it. Go for it!

I guess along the lines of the previous questions, how about coming up with a list of songs that count down from 10 to 0?
There was a song by Smashing Pumpkins that includes that last number... can't seem to remember the title... little help?

;)

Yep, that's a good tune. You could also go with "Carry the Zero" by Built to Spill, "Character Zero" by Phish, or "Wind Chill Factor (Minus Zero)" by Boomtown Rats.

The rest of my list

"Ten Years Gone" - Led Zeppelin
"Nights x 9" - Slant 6
"Eight Miles High" - The Byrds
"Seven Nation Army" - The White Stripes
"Six-Sixty-Six" - Frank Black & The Catholics
"Five Corporations" - Fugazi
"Four Sticks" - Led Zeppelin
"Three Pistols" - The Tragically Hip
"Two Hearts Beat as One" - U2
"One" - Three Dog Night (Or the Filter version)

Bah, I already got one wrong (and therefore at least two). I should have stuck with my initial choice for the 0.3 second rule.

Edit - Got all three basketball ones wrong.

I shall post a day-related BSLOS right now, as I searched for a generic "Trivia" thread (on 3/11/11) for a sports question, and didn't realize it was for music.

"While I scatter my spit, I dream of juice."

BTW, you are right about being wrong on the basketball ones, MSP; the others are correct.
