The 2009 Quiz Spectacular!

Good morning/afternoon/evening to you, and welcome to Ewarwoowar's spectacular quiz!

I've done a quiz on here before and it was well received, so now here is a massive one for your enjoyment. First of all, before you tackle it, a few points. A) There really will be a prize for this quiz. A real, genuine prize. Excited? B) Once this quiz is published, you have 2 weeks, then the competition will be closed and the answers revealed. C) For all cheats, especially you Mitchell Cashmore, don't try it. If you cheat, I will know. Do not try me on this. D) To enter, leave a comment, and in interests of fairness I won't publish comments until the fortnight is up. Got it? Great - go go go!

1. Name the city!

2. Name the song from it's opening line!

1) On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair, warm smell of colitas, rising up through the air...
2) Goodbye Norma Jean, though I never knew you at all...
3) Johnnys in the basement, mixing up the medicine, I'm on the pavement, thinking about the Government...
4) An old man turned 98, he won the lottery and died the next day...
5) Out on the winding, windy moors, we'd roll and fall in green...
6) You've done it all, you've broken every code, and pulled the rebel to the floor...
7) Where it began, I can't begin to know when...
8) Now here you go again,
you say you want your freedom...
9) Call out the instigators, because there's some
thing in the air...
10) The world was on fire, no-one could save me but you...

3. Name the sportsperson!

And finally, 4. Who's autobiography was entitled thus?

1. Why do I say these things?
2. Blade Runner
3. Dear Fatty
4. Mad, Bad and Dangerous to know
5. Enter the Dragon
6. I'm only being honest
7. On the Edge
8. Ooh! What a lovely pair!
9. Humble Pie
10. Bit of a Blur

Well that's the quiz, folks. Good luck - remember, to take part, just leave a comment. This is going to stay as my main blog post for a little while now, for two reasons: 1) It gives you time to peruse it at your leisure, and 2) I'm going to be taking a "blogging holiday" for a bit, although I'll still probably drop in on other people's blogs. No doubt I'll come back in about a week refreshed and ready to go, armed with about 7 ridiculous Wendy Slark letters. Ciao for now!
