First Hump Day Top 5

I love playing the "list" game.  In high school, the game was played by passing notes back and forth between periods...

...these days the challenge is conveniently sent via text.  It's fun and helps pass the time and I always love a little Pop Culture/ Hollywood challenge.

Here's a few examples of the list game - feel free to play along.  It's more of a challenge on paper (Google isn't as easily accessible)

Game # 1 
The Challenge: Name 5 movies staring Brad Pitt
Game # 2 
The Challenge: Fill in the blanks
The day time soap, Days of Our Lives, stars a character by the name of Victor Kiriakis who is played by the Father of ___________ who was married to the Actor from Game # 1.  

Other then passing the time during long road trips, what is the point of this you ask?  Well, I'm a huge fan of lists and useless facts when it comes to celebrities.  One of my favorite movies of all times is High Fidelity.  

Not only because it stars one of my favorite Actors (John Cusack) but because of his character's obsession with top 5 lists.   

Example: Top 5 Songs About Death - from the movie High Fidelity

  • "Leader of the Pack" by The Sangri-Las
  • "Dead Man's Curve" by Jan & Dean
  • "Tell Laura I Love Her" by Ray Peterson
  • "One Step Beyond" by Madness
  • "You Can't Always Get What You Want" by The Rolling Stones (disqualified because of its use in The Big Chill)
  • "Wreck of the Edmond Fitzgerald" by Gordon Lightfoot

Expect my top 5 each week and a fun list game challenge.

Top 5 Songs a little dark and twisty
  • "Mad World" by Gary Jules
  • "In For the Kill" by La Roux
  • "Ramalama" by Roisin Murphy
  • "Breath Me" by Sia
  • "Sweet Dreams" by Emily Browning

  1. OH SNAP! I hate it when "some songs" or videos are not available in my country. I'm in freaking Canada! I'm right next door, damn it! I wanted to enjoy those songs!

    Ah well. Fun list, just the same! One of my fav Brad Pitt movies is Twelve Monkeys.
