~ QUIZ ~

Dream Theater is one of my all-time favorite bands. If you like progressive-metal, it doesn't get any better than this band. There's a section from the song, Octavarium, where the band makes reference to other band names, artisits, album titles, song lyrics, and pop culture references that were influential to the band. The references are merged together like a big run-on sentence (as you'll see in the lyric passage below - note the appropriate lyrics in red) to create a really neat lyrical passage Your assignment is to identify the references. A Rabbit Ramblings t-shirt goes to the person who can correctly identify the most references.

To start you off and give you a clue

Sailing on the Seven Seas by OMD (song) or possibly Seven Seas of Rhye by Queen (song)

Here are the lyrics:

sailing on the seven seize the day tripper diem's ready
jack the ripper owens wilson phillips and my supper's ready
lucy in the sky with diamond dave's not here I come to save the
day for nightmare cinema show me the way to get back home again

Running forward
Falling back
Spinning round and round
Looking outward
Reaching in
Scream without a sound

Leaning over
Crawling up
Stumbling all around
Losing my place
Only to find I've come full circle

flying off the handle with careful with
that axe eugene gene the dance machine
messiah light my fire gabba gabba
hey hey my my generation's home again
