|Five extra points: Which Musical is this photo from?|
Some of the most popular musicals of Broadway and film are often set in a historic era, the 1800's seems to be a particularly popular time frame. This game focuses on lyrics from some of those period set musicals.
The idea for this game came to me when I was watching for the first time a musical that seems to be a particular favorite of a lot of my blogging friends (you know who you are and it's your fault that now the tunes to "Master of the House" and others are stuck in my head! :P ).
To Play: Guess the song titles and which musicals the lyrics below come from and leave your answers in a comment. If the title of the song appears in the lyrics I've replaced it with blank spaces. Guess as many times as you like and I'll respond with your score. Answers will be posted next week.
Points: To make it simple there will be one point for each correctly guessed song title and musical. Maximum score is 20 points.

Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of __ _____ ____
Our star is shining it's brightest light
For goodnight, my love, for goodnight.

__ __ __ __ __ in my own little chair
I can be whatever I want to be.
On the wings of my fancy I can fly anywhere
and the world will open its arms to me.
Make me a match,
Find me a find,
catch me a catch
Look through your book,
And make me a perfect match
Bed! Bed! I couldn't go to bed!
My head's too light to try to set it down! Sleep! Sleep!
I couldn't sleep tonight.
Not for all the jewels in the crown!
_ ___ __ ___ __ ___!

And still have begged for more.

Getting to know what to say
Haven't you noticed
Suddenly I'm bright and breezy?
Because of all the beautiful and new
Things I'm learning about you
Day by day.
No more talk of darkness
Forget these wide-eyed fears
I'm here, nothing can harm you
My words will warm and calm you
Let me be your freedom
Let daylight dry your tears
I'm here, with you, beside you
To guard you and to guide you
When I take you out, tonight, with me,
Honey, here's the way it's goin' to be:
You will set behind a team of snow white horses,
In the slickest gig you ever see!
Chicks and ducks and geese better scurry
When I take you out in the surrey,
When I take you out in the ____ ___ __ _____ __ ___!
Hopefully this quiz won't be too hard or (oh horrors!) too easy. Have fun! :)
