I'll follow with mine in a moment.

Question 1:

Question 3:

1, 4, 2, 3

Question 4:

Place these songs in order of release, starting with the latest

1. Oops
2. Born to Run
3. Joshua Tree
4. Black to Black, then hesitated asking myself if Fred said Back to Black, cost me time, it ran out - I would have punched in 1, 3, 4, 2, probably would have been wrong anyway, will have to look it up.

Just got back from google, it is Back to Black - like an old lady like me would listen to the Druggie, ha. So I guess it would be 4, 1, 3, 2 ?

Well. I fat-fingered the very first question. I guess I'm out of practice.

I got:

"put these words in order to make a saying describing an angry person. 1. collar, 2. hot 3 the 4 under." I think I reversed 1 and 2. Anyway, I didn't get past that one. Better luck tomorrow.

4. didn't hear it--I just got out of court, went to office which is next to railroad tracks across the tracks from the courthouse--took the time to check the phone game posts , got out my legal pad, marked 1-4 down five times, took a deep breath and dialed---just as Fred was saying the last name a train rolled by--here in New Iberia , Louisiana , the train is allowed to roll thru town at full speed as long as it blasts out its horn --cannot hear a thing when the train rolls by---totally flustered me and by the time I figured number four had to fit between Bassinger and Knightly--ran out of time --oh well--the sun will come out again tommorrow---but will play the game at home next time

I must be rusty, seemed to go by faster than I remembered--maybe I just getting older and slower
