Music Monday - Winner's Edition

It's game night and the board has 2 playing pieces the 1st one was missing 1 wedge, and the second piece needed 2 wedges. I land on what I need. My (now ex) husband breathes a sigh of relief when he sees the "Entertainment" question. There is no way she's getting this answer right he thinks. I don't remember what the question was but the answer was ...

Purple People Eater

I won that game of Trivial Pursuit. LOL! What he didn't know (and I had almost forgotten) was that my best friend in elementary school had that 45 and we used to play the song over & over. So not only was it one of my favorite songs in elementary school, but I knew the whole song by heart.

That was the closest he ever came to winning and to think I was saved by a "One-eyed, One horned flying purple people eater.

Wow, I haven't heard that song in ages! I'm usually pretty good with trivia but Trivial Pursuit goes way back with some of those questions. Too far back even for me. LOL.

I know the original edition did. I think there may be a pop culture edition that doesn't go back sooo far. But I used to watch Jeopsrdy regularly then too, so maybe I had a little more of that off beat knowledge.
